Thanks for that, Bry.

Yes, it seems to be the correct one that I bought already, but there was 3 of them in the parcel. I'm wondering now if there was difference between the 3 as I just used a random one!

"XTVTX 3PCS PL2303HX USB to TTL Serial Converter´╝î USB to RS232 TTL Serial Adapter Converter 4 Pin Female Socket Compatible for Arduino Download Cable"

I'll take that video later as I passed out last night!

The video is linked below. I'm all out of options now. The green LED on the coin mech doesn't start flashing red until it is discovered by the coinkit software. I don't know if any experts can see something I'm missing. Thanks in advance.

Thank you, Bry. I set my connections up via this wiring diagram.

That's strange - it seems to show the same information, Pin 1=Data, Pin 7=Power and Pin 8=Earth. I did wonder if I'd wired it up the wrong way round but due to the power getting through, I'm guessing that proves I am looking at it the correct way after all. I hate to be beaten but I think I'm all out of options. It's a mystery.

I've been forced to return the PC back down to my garden bar as the wife was complaining of it being in the house. If anybody has any suggestions before my trial period runs out, I'm sure she'll allow me to re-connect it to the internet! Either way, thanks for all your help.

Hi Steve,
According to that it's pin 8 for ground. The same as the diagram I uploaded. The table confirms this too. If you look closer, the marker turns diagonally and goes to pin 8.

You need BOTH pin 8 & pin9 to gnd, it's pin9 that switches the acceptor from parallel mode to ccTalk mode...

Oh wow! I followed that video step by step and I never caught that part. I have some of those wire splicing connectors so I'll splice an extra wire to pin 9. Thank you very much for explaining this, Steve. I'll fetch it back up to the house!

Spliced 8 to 9 but still no difference. The green LED is constant until the coinkit software detects which port the coin mech is connected to, at this point the LED starts to blink green to red like in my previous linked video. That's a shame as I had my hopes up for a few minutes.

Steve, I'm unable to send private messages for some reason - can you message me so that I can send you something back?
