Serial to USB cable?

I have a serial cable for my Garmin Etrex, one side a serial plug the other goes to my GPSR. I am about to get rid of my desktop and only use my laptops but I don't have a serial port on either. Knowing this the serial cable is useless unless I spend another $40 - $50 on a "Serial to USB Converter". So, I cut it to see what and how many wires are inside of it and found only three. I was thinking of making my own cable but I don't understand the difference between the two ports. I saw the GPS 'ible here and it's no help unless you don't have the serial cable already... Here are my questions:1. As long as I connect the proper data in, data out and ground to the USB cable shouldn't it work?2. Are serial ports and USB ports that much different?I read a lot on the pfrancs website and i noticed a few of the connectors looked like they may have had USB cables hooked to them. I've searched and searched but came up with squat! If you have a really good understanding about USB and serial ports can you please help me or direct me to someone who can? Thanks in advance!

HDMI to VGA cable? Answered

Hi, I recently bought a HDMI to VGA cord for my Raspberry Pi (V. 1).  After I received it, I tried it, but it did not work.  I did some research and from what I can find, running the cord straight from the Pi to a VGA screen will not work.  Is this correct?  Is there any way to use this cord?  Or is this just a useless cord?  Thanks in advance.  :)

Hilarious $500 ethernet cable

Denon, purveyors of audiophile equipment and home cinema kit, are selling a $500 1.5 metre cat-5 cable.That's not so much funny as disappointing.However, the Amazon reviews are utterly hilarious."Holding this cable in my hands actually makes me feel that much closer to the Lord Jesus...""So I shelled over the 1/2 grand and found out that I can SEE GOD when I play things now.. In addition I see the future and now know the stock market BEFORE it happens! ""Just 1 minute after pressing the button to order this, I had 7 phone calls from insanely hot women, and got 7 dates out of it. Coincidence? I think not. ""I couldn't believe a cable could make so much difference, so I connected a cable tester to it and saw that it rendered the 0s and 1s perfectly. I'm even getting some 2s and 3s!!!""Each one of these cables is blessed in the blood of a dead pope."There are, however, a refreshing number of people saying "I'll never buy anything from Denon ever again". I believe this product may be withdrawn shortly, if Denon have the tiniest bit of sense.

LCD cable (LVDS?) Question

Hey guys, so I am in the process of *attempting* to repurpose my old laptop lcd into a video monitor.  More specifically, I am trying to replace an old home built video monitor lcd that was broken with my working laptop LCD.  When it comes to this sort of thing I would barely call myself a hobbyist. Left over from my original home built monitor I have is the LCD controller, and I am planning (hoping) to use that in order to drive the laptop LCD.  I have gotten power working (it was a snap), but here is the problem I have run into and don't really know how to solve. The laptop cable for video (in searching around I guess it's an LVDS cable) is differently shaped/designed as to what the controller requires (and the cable for the old broken LCD won't work on my working LCD.  So here is where I require help.  I have posted 2 pictures, the first one is the lvds cable that plugs into the display, and the second is of the controller connection.  They are both 30 pin connectors (although only 12 pins are in use my laptop lcd) so I really don't see why given the correct cable/adapter I shouldn't be able to get this to work. If anyone knows where I can get such a cable, or at least what the respective cable plugs are called (so I can search on my own) I would appreciate it very much.  Also, if I am a fool for attempting to do this, and I am missing some important piece of information that makes what I want to do impossible, I will appreciate that type of info as well!

Sports without cable?

Our cable company is terrible. We've tried getting satellite (directv) but there is a big tree in the way and we rent so we can't do anything about that. You can get good quality versions of all of the actual shows that we watch online somewhere (directly from the network's website, hulu, etc). And watching them that way gives you all of the convenience of having a DVR - watch whenever, rewind, fast forward, pause, etc. Also, our TV has a PC input (which we use frequently). So I was thinking of getting a cheap computer to leave hooked up to the TV and set it up to easily navigate through shows. That way we could get rid of our EXPENSIVE and CRAPPY cable. The only problem is sports. I couldn't care less about them but I live with my boyfriend, who loves hockey. Hockey is the hardest sport to watch with low resolution (the puck is tiny! I can't find it in HD sometimes). It's also never shown on the local channels (so no option of the cheapy cable or using some kind of antenna). NHL.com has a subscription you can get to watch online but it won't show you games if it's available on your local cable. So basically - does anyone know of a good place online to watch live (preferably free and good quality) sports? Hockey is the most important but also football/baseball/basketball. Any help would be appreciated!

How to build a network cable certifier?

I have a fairly extensive lan in my home that is constantly expanding. I want to do some custom wiring and started looking into building my own cat 6 cables. When I started shopping for the wire I noticed a lot of complaints about wiring not being capable of carrying gigabit speeds, CCA being sold as solid copper etc. Now I'm questioning the wiring I already have, wondering if it might be the culprit for random problems. I want to find a way to test my current wiring and anything I make in the future. But as anyone with experience knows a cable certifier is thousands of dollars. Then I got to thinking if i have two computers capable of gigabit speeds shouldn't I be able to run a cable between them and verify the performance of the cable? I was hoping someone here will have the experience I lack to make this a reality. Also if it was possible to make a smaller arduino based tool that would be amazing. This seems like a tool damn near everyone could use these days.

A thing about usb cable lengths!

 Well apparently according to many websites I've visted, claim that the longest cable you can use for a usb device is just a little over 15 feet. That said, I'm one for completely disregarding warnings. According to the text on one website: Q: How long of a cable can I use to connect my USB device? A: In practice, the USB specification limits the cable length between Full-speed USB devices to 5 meters (A little under 16 feet, 5 inches). For a Low-Speed device, the limit is 3 meters (9 feet, 10 inches). So my dilemma is that I have an a$$hole neighbour that is stealing things from me and I want to catch him. Being cheap, I'm going to use my webcam instead of spending $50 on a low resolution color camera that only outputs composite (although that would allow me to make cables easier and I DO have a capture card on my pc) but this is besides the point. So I found a telephone cable (as it has 4 wires just like USB) and I figure it's got to be AT LEAST 20 feet long, maybe 30, which is long enough for what I need. I thought because It's all over the internet how apparently the limit is 15 feet, that is would just NOT work at all. 10 minutes later I had spliced the telephone wire between the USB connector and the webcam, wiring black to black, red to red, green to green, and yellow to white (usb side). Upon plugging it into my desktop usb hub, sure enough, my computer recognized it, and the video came through just fine. So I post this forum-topic to SHOW that it is infact possible to go OVER the so-called usb limit. I got the idea originally from a video I watched last night where a guy had a webcam mounted to the middle of his ceiling for a project he was working on, and it appeared that he had spliced in a longer wire than the webcam came with, and strung it across the ceiling, and then the wall. I DO have a question and I AGAIN request the help of all you helpful instructables members! My webcam as-is can see IR (infared) light, as I've tested this with a remote control and it can see the white light coming out of it. So the question is, how hard would it be to build an array of IR LED's to light up my yard, not even nessesarily pointing away from the source of the webcam, but say, an array of led's above the door of my shed shining down so if someone does attempt to enter my shed, I will be able to clearly record them. Long post I know, but this is VERY important to me that this works and I'm hoping I didn't waste my time constructing this, I've had a few things stolen from me recently and it's really pissing me off. For instance, one of my bicycles was stolen, RIGHT FROM MY FRONT DOORSTEP! It has wayyyy more sentimental value to me than actual cash value and I'm literally ready to choke the living sh)t out of someone!

Amazon's very expensive cable, and the comments for it.

Http://www.amazon.com/AudioQuest-K2-terminated-speaker-cable/dp/B000J36XR2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_18 I was flipping around on Kotaku, and came across a page talking about the MASSIVE rip-offs involving HDMI cables. I read the article and found this link in the comments. This is a $9,000 audio cable from Amazon. I went down to the comments (mostly to see if some idiot bought this), and found some interesting comments. And by interesting, I mean I fell out of my chair laughing.  -------------------------------------------------- Some comments: " We live underground. We speak with our hands. We wear the earplugs all our lives. PLEASE! You must listen! We cannot maintain the link for long... I will type as fast as I can. DO NOT USE THE CABLES! We were fools, fools to develop such a thing! Sound was never meant to be this clear, this pure, this... accurate. For a few short days, we marveled. Then the... whispers... began. Were they Aramaic? Hyperborean? Some even more ancient tongue, first spoken by elder races under the red light of dying suns far from here? We do not know, but somehow, slowly... we began to UNDERSTAND. No, no, please! I don't want to remember! YOU WILL NOT MAKE ME REMEMBER! I saw brave men claw their own eyes out... oh, god, the screaming... the mobs of feral children feasting on corpses, the shadows MOVING, the fires burning in the air! The CHANTING! WHY CAN'T I FORGET THE WORDS??? We live underground. We speak with our hands. We wear the earplugs all our lives. Do not use the cables!" - By Whisper ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "If there is one cable I would whole-heartedly trust to my Chimera-hunting needs, this would be the cable. No other cable has the tensile strength to properly and efficiently garrote a lycanthrope, asphyxiate an Esquilax or even gag a mermaid. Last week, using my trusty AudioQuest K2 (retrofitted with lead weights, bright orange latex paint and a generous coating of crushed glass stolen from the window of an abandoned church at midnight), I managed to snuff 3 golden unicorns in swift succession!  Pros: Quickly tears through scales, fur, bone, and adamantium with ease  Coils and uncoils from hip holster (optional) quickly and quietly  For a product fabricated from 1,000 Onyx Dragon fetuses, the price is unbelievably reasonable!  Cons: Shipping from the R'lyeh took far too long  Doesn't come in 10' lengths (which would be perfect for hydra, cerberii and other multi-headed creatures)  After every use, I can feel 6 ounces of my soul slipping from my core into the ether. But this may be due to the fact that I prefer to work without gloves. YMMV.  Overall, I would recommend that any hunter buy one, nay, two, of these immediately, and experience the difference that upgrading to the K2 will make in your next quest!" - By Valannin "Pantheon Outcast"

Vga cable gone wrong

I've tried like 5-6 times to make myself a vga male-to-male cable for this 32" tv I have that I can't do anything but watch noise infested cable with.So I'll skip all the bull****. I'm down to two cables I cut one from an old CRT and one from a non-working LCD monitor. Of course the lcd cable has to be considerably thinner, but the cables inside are relatively the same color.I've used this , and this website for a little bit of reference, along with wikipedia's VGA Connector page. The only bit of useful information I really have is on the wiki page where it says the male connector is just a mirror image, but it still confuses me.So far I have pins 1, 2, and 3 connected together at the cut end of the two cables, as they're the 3 thicker cables inside there. The rest of the cables seemed to be the same color as on the other cable, except that one had a black wire, and one with a red one (these turned out to be the same pin so I wired them together). The rest of the wires I matched together according to color and some of them I've heat shrinked, but I figured I better not waste any on wires I'm unsure about.Sure enough, it does not work, my LCD continues to display no signal, and I'm now wishing I didn't cut apart the first hand made cable I had (I grabbed off a cart at school). But the image quality was crudd, and it turns out it was wired in the cable to 5 coaxial wires, probably causing the quality issue as it wasn't exactly standard.Can someone tell me what the hell I did wrong???? Should it be wired differently instead of just a straight through cable?
