PI serial cable compatible with WDTV ?   

Postby blachanc » Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:58 am

I do not plan on bricking my WDTV,
but I was wondering if the cable I bought fro my PI (new toy),
was fully compatible.

this looks exactly like what is required in the WIKI,
with the benefit or not needing to cut the cable...

The cable is easiest way ever to connect to your microcontroller/Raspberry Pi/WiFi router serial console port. Inside the big USB plug is a USB<->Serial conversion chip and at the end of the 36" cable are four wire - red power, black ground, white RX into USB port, and green TX out of the USB port. The power pin provides the 500mA direct from the USB port and the RX/TX pins are 3.3V level for interfacing with the most common 3.3V logic level chipsets.

Yes, that cable should work fine.
