RS232 not working with high com ports?

Ju.

I’m trying to talk to an arduino (FTDI drivers / virtual COM port) via the RS232 node. When I set it to COM1, all is fine. on COM11 or COM27, however, I get a 1 on the “connected” pin, but messages aren’t received by the arduino. If I cross-check in the arduino IDE, it works.

(yes, I’ve made sure the other app isn’t blocking the port).

known issue?

the known issue with the connected output pin is, that it under almost all circumstances just reflects the status of the enabled input pin.

really old versions had issues with com ports>9, but iirc they were fixed very long time ago. so basically com11-com27 should be fine. are they working with HyperTerminal? does com10 work for you?

are they working with HyperTerminal? does com10 work for you?

well, they do with arduinos serial monitor. COM10 is some bluetooth device. But if you insist I can make a complete test with all disable & enable of course?

I stumbled on the same problem today and the bad news is:

It seems as if VVVV still can not deal with COM-Ports >9 (Beta12).

COM1 - COM9 are working fine for me, COM10 and bigger do not receive or send any data. Other applications are working with these COM-Ports >9.
