The PIEXX930 option is for the Piexx board which goes into a TS-930.
Operationally, it looks like a TS940 to the computer, but since the
computer cannot control the mode in a '930, this option makes the NA
keyboard mode keys work appropriately.
I am not familiar with a Piexx board for a TS-940, but my understanding
was that it simply fill the role of the (no longer available)
accessories required to make the '940 talk RS-232. In that case, select
the TS-940 option in NA/CONFIG.
NA does not support any rig control via LPT ports; only COM ports.
Perhaps the comment in your e-mail was a typo.
