That is too fast a conclusion, in your case it just means no one knows
the answer.  If every one on this list that would be interested in the
topic, would have replied you would get a few hundred messages, "sorry
don't know" and another zillion of kindly offered but wrong suggestions.
Luckily most people let is pass quietly.

In your case I would suggest trying the cvs code. Not much hope though,
setting baud rate should even work now, it works everywhere AFAICT.
