S-Series indicate "Unknown COM" whilst downloading

Post by diyfiesta » Wed Jun 30, 2010 8:30 pm

I'm having intermittent problems downloading data using the IR interface and Keyspan USA-19HS USB/serial converter.

First few times it worked ok, but sometimes gets stuck with "no data recieved" even after several attempts at changing the alignment etc. I spotted at one point the watch came up with "Uknown COM" which I guess is more useful. It doesn't however show this every time.

The only other clue might be that I deleted my user and re-created it, you don't have to setup via the watch do you?

Anyone experienced similar?

Cheers

Hi,
There's no setup for the watch, but you might want to try this method of downloading: http://www.ismarttrain.com/articles/AlterDownload.php
