I am having trouble with a python application running on a PC, it seems incoming characters are lost when received from the virtual serial port.
The setup is as follows:
PC <---USB---> <---USB-to-RS232-converter---> <---RS232-level-shifter---> RF transceiver with serial interface
The use case is: 1. Press "send" on a RF remote control 2. The transceiver receives and decodes the signal, sends information according to a slightly complex protocol (over standard RS232) to the PC. 3. Somewhere along the line characters are lost - most likely this happens in the PC application or buffers.
I'd like to sniff the serial data coming out of the RF transceiver - can this be done with the Bus Pirate? From reading the docs my understanding is that this is possible - correct?
