Say what? The 20-pin connector on the M8190 (KDJ11-B) is configuration
management, etc - the console connector is the 10-pin one (which uses the
standard DEC later serial pinout, documented here:


if anyone needs it). The 11/44 console (and TU58) seem (from a quick glance at
the prints) to use some odd pinout that is sui generis.

Time to break out the soldering iron...
