This would be a neat feature for an installer to use, if they weren't familiar enough with NS to use device notifications. Consider this - a surround receiver stops responding to control. If an installer had a super-secret installer page to go to, he could bring it up, see the text window for that serial port, try playing with the receiver, and see if strings start to come back. once strings show up again (likely after a reboot - it's happened alot to me. Yay for Denon.), it's all good! However, it sounds like a lot of work for very little gain, now that I'm typing this out! Man, I wasted a lot of typing just to talk myself out of doing something - great....Back to thinking of other bad ideas!

Just use netlinxs device notications to monitor all incoming and outgoing rs232 messages.
No need for programming a touchpanel...just read all messages in a list in netlinx studio.
This is a very powerfull tool to debug serial protocol issues.
You can also use the "control a device" option to send a rs232 message on any port without changing the amx program.
