COM Ports

I just did some disabling of the com ports on my system board. Somehow my USB (SYBA) to serial adapters have gone from Com port 6 and 7 to 11 and 12after a reboot. I updated to 6.3.10 just now and I cannot for the life of me get SAGE to change my tuners' channel. I enabled debugging and this is what i have.

Mon 7/21 21:42:21.825 Seeker channel string=5
Mon 7/21 21:42:21.825 Could not open COM12
Mon 7/21 21:42:21.826 ERROR Cannot open serial port for DTV control: COM12
Mon 7/21 21:42:21.828 switchOutputFile0 called

Also DTVControl works and can control the receivers just fine. Also, noticed that the directvserialcontrol.dll is not in c:\program files\sagetv\common , but in c:\program files\sagetv\sagetv. Is this right?

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Fixed it...kind of

Ok I found out Sage apparently does not using ports com 11 and 12. I reloaded the drivers and they pulled up as com3 and com4. Now it works. Quirky!! (Although it's probably in the documentation somewhere!!! Who needs a manual anyway!!)

You've just discovered one of the many "undocumented features" that makes Windows such a quirky-fun filled OS!
