Recently we had deployed 16 DMP-4400 attached to televisions in our environment. All of them are configured identically, and have the same model of TVs attached to them. Four of them refuse to pass rs232 commands to the attached TVs, and are much slower to load the content to be displayed, a significant difference in loading time. Disabling the rs232 allows the content to load at a normal speed.
I have replaced the rs232 cables, wiped out the configuration and reconfigured.
The rs232 is being enabled with the following command:
When sending a command the rs232.tx_hex string should populate, and the rs232.tx_cnt should increase in value, these values never change. The commands are being sent from DMM version 5.3 and work on the 12 other DMPs that are in place. Connecting a rs232 sniffer also shows that nothing was sent from the DMP.
When you were having the issues with the Samsung monitor, was this also causing the content loaded on the screen to load at a extremely slow rate, or where you just experiencing issues with the rs232 commands? Currently even when the rs232 cable is removed the content loads at a slower rate with rs232 enabled, disabling it causes the DMP to preform as expected.
Hi David, I am encountering a similar problem now when connecting RS232 cables to DMP 4400 on 5.2.3. The DMP CPU will spike to 100% whenever the R2232 cable is connected to the DMP. Will like to find out whether you eventually found a solution to the problem? Does removing other pins on the connector other than pins 2, 3 and 5 helped?
Re: DMP-4400, rs232 commands not being sent to device
It seems impossible to purchase RS232 cables with the correct pinout, everyone sales the cable with "RS232 null modem with full handshaking". For this you need the "Simple RS232 null modem without handshaking", which only uses the 3 pins, 2, 3, and 5.
I ended up making my own cables, using RJ-45 to DB9 Adapters, and pinning them myself. Flipping TX and RX on one end, after this everything worked as expected.

If you have 2 ISR routers, one acting as Failover, do we need to have both the same number of SRST licenses on the 2 routers?
No. You will only need the SRST licenses on the primary router. Because this feature...
