Forum member Charles “cakalapati” has been selling his debug cables for the MediaSmart Server for 11 months with many satisfied customers. These cables connect to the onboard debug connector of the MediaSmart Server motherboard and allow VGA, PS2, and serial connectivity for troubleshooting problems with the home server.
Today Charles has announced the 2nd generation of these cables, which feature a longer and higher quality cable for more flexibility of mounting options, and are now packaged in an assembly that fits conveniently inside the drive tray of an empty hard drive bay of your server.
The cables work with both the EX485/EX487 and EX470/EX475 servers, and prices range from $60-$90 plus shipping.
Thanks to Charles for making these available to us. Be sure to see this forum topic for ordering info.
