What is RS-232C Input?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an LG Plasma, what does the RS-232C input do? I also have one on my Austar Set top Box. I assume its an input or maybe its an output. If so, can this be connected in any way for picture??

Short answer, NOPE (for picture).

RS232 is what computers use to connect to modems and other devices.

In the case of the LG monitor, the RS232 "serial port" would likely be used for diagnostics or software update.

Set top box would use the serial port for software update, and possibly modem connection for interactive or Pay per view.
