I would like to know the specs, at least correct baud rate, parity, stop
bits for a PVP 5200 unit.

I have a PVM1010 on it and can get the data via Ethernet and internet
but need to know how to get better info from the DB9.

I have tried many baud rates and parity but don't get anything
recognizable.

Thanks for any help on this.

Mike

I'm guessing...

The usual "offend as few people as possible" settings for serial
devices seem to be 8N1 (8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit) at
9600 baud. If that doesn't do it, try doubling and halving the
baud rate until you hit it.

Good luck!

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this opening line.
Just_a_fan wants to offend everyone.

He wants to buy and sell KW, and thinks the use of the term kWh, especially
kWh/day, is a sign of a mental defect.

He berates PG&E as being full of idiots because the Time of Use meter
doesn't recognize the change in Daylight Savings Time hours.

Actually, I'm none too keen on PG&E myself. Their rolling
blackouts in San Jose screwed up a bunch of my files and they
filed bankruptcy and stiffed me for my deposit when I left.

 In his case he attacks because nobody can make him understand the
other side. In your case....probably no different.
