With correct wiring, your USB to TTL adaptor will work perfectly ! Anyway, you can allways use the "PC DIRECT MODE" trough your Goto Controler via a "USB to RS232" dongle (like "Keyspan") directly connectedto your Mac. This "USB to RS232" dongle is very usual and can be found in any correct PC Shop...

Klaus, If he cannot easily import a BT adapter I don't think there's much chance of importing a T&C touch controller? You think so? Why? I guess half Turkey wouldn´t be functioning without importing foreign gadgets - or do they make everything on their own? Computers, TV sets, cars, planes, ships,...

You should just need a USB-RS232 adapter then connect that to the handset's serial port and configure the handset in 'direct mode', or whatver they call it, so it is just acting as an RS232-TTL convertor.
