I have two questions about the M2 2800 rotator and hope this is appropriate
place to ask. First, I am interested in computer control. I have no RS-232
ports left on my computer but I do have USB ports. Will a USB to Serial
converter work ok for that application? If so, the program (logging program
XMLog) asks for the port number for rotator control. Does a USB port get
assigned a port number (like comm1, comm2, etc.)? I know my comm1 is a
RS232 and likewise my second RS232 is comm2 but my USB ports don't seem to
have a number?
Lastly, The ads for the m2 states there is "10 presets and 1 flexible
pre-set" but I can't find anything in the manual about a 'flexible preset?'
