    Jim try to reply to your original thread rather than make new posts, it's easier that way.

    I don't have a diagram of my pinout handy but I'll look around tommorrow. Make sure you have the machine in setup mode, flip the reset switch inside the tape reader cabinet, then press edit. The machine should relay back to HyperTerminal

    BOSS 5.0

    After that you can "send text from file" press CTRL-Z after the code has been sent.

    Sorry christian , thanks for the advice on a proper post , new at this.

    what does it mean if the BOSS 5.0 >Input does not show on the panel or should it show me on the PC screen??

    Remove the #1 to #5 and try again. If you don't get BOSS 5 on the Hyperterminal screen (assuming all your port settings are correct in Hyperterminal) Then your wiring or ERS card isn't working. It would be ok if you get some scrible or garbage because you can probably get everything working right with the right settings. Keep trying and keep asking.

    Good luck.
