Serial port ?

How do you use the serial port to upload files from your pc, i have never done this always use usb but this time it doesnt have the option, when i plug the cables in the pc/ receiver box should it pick it up itself etc..

What are you trying to upload? Does it come with any software that you use with it instead of just what Windows has you use?

Here's a thread for you to check out, should definitely help out.

Your going to hear COM a lot, its just another name for the serial interface. You can access this through hyper terminal or various other programs such as Secure CRT.

Your cable is probably 'straight through', you either need an adapter on the end that swaps the TX (transmit) and RX (receive) pins [which is what makes it 'null' or another cable that already has it done internally.

As mentioned, Radio Shack will have one.
