Hi everyone. I've got a TS Live (HS-DHTGL/R5) that I'm wanting to gain serial access on. I found the thread: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=13096 which links to http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.ph ... Ov2/TSLIVE but nothing ever came of it in there.

I don't personally have soldering experience but I have a couple of friends that do whom are willing to come do the work for me if I can get instructions on what needs to be done to enable the serial console. We were originally going to use the instructions at http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Ter ... al_console but obviously those won't work for the TS Live.

What is needed in order to test how to properly connect/bridge/etc so that I don't end up with a true brick due to a fried board?

Multimeter? What else? I'm idle in IRC also, so shoot me a message there. I'd really like to get the serial console up and running ASAP so I can figure out why the stock kernel that I compiled wouldn't boot.

I bit the bullet and bought a test board and soldering equipment and taught myself to solder with help from youtube. Also got a multimeter though I don't have an oscilloscope and don't plan to get one right now... it's not -really- needed anyways for what I'm trying to do right now.

So what I need to know now is how to test the board to find out what needs to be done.

Based on these two images: [img=http://buffalo.nas-central.org/w/images/e/ee/CIMG3088_resize.JPG] and [img=http://buffalo.nas-central.org/w/images/4/45/CIMG3089_resize.JPG]

I am under the impression that jumpers need to be soldered to CN29 in the second image, and then leads need to be run from J1 to those jumpers.

But before I do that, can someone confirm how I -should- be testing that doing that will work? I'd like to not fry the board, so I'd rather use a meter to test with the power off.
