I think there's a serial version of the gravitech board. As for the USB, it's just a USB-> serial conversion. I really need to upload a new version of the plugin next couple of days.

I got the kit and display from Gravetech and it is all put together.  It works great using a hyperterminal program.  It is set up on Com 5 on my PC.  I have installed the PlugIn and have started Mach3 and enabled the PlugIn and restarted Mach3. After shutting down, I changed the ComPort from -1 to -5 in the XML file with the Artsoft XML reader.  When I run Mach3 again, nothing happens on the display.  I shut down Mach3 and go back to the XML file and it is back to -1.  Please help!
