Hi Nomad

On my website I have put some detailed instruction to add the serial hack for the bluetooth chip. The info is on the help page at www.themadrobot.talktalk.net

Note: I am still doing work on the my site and the notes for the serial hack but the info currently on my site will get you up and running with the serial hack.

Hope this helps

Go to my website to download the latest version of the RS Media Control Station software www.TheMadRobot.talktalk.net

Nomad still waiting for chip to arrive, by your pic we ordered the same one. I'll let you know my progress when it arrives.


January 21, 2012 10:38 PM

hello mike i have more pic if you want.here's a tip.if you got the chip,
use the wire on the side from the 4 seperate ones,not the hole conecter.
when you solder it in and mist like me ,you can swiths easly the wires.

hello gerber thank you for the info.i get a lot help from freddy and guy's here.
i have the com port and the 115200 and pairing reddy so far.

Nomad, Success the bluetooth works great with Gerbers software and the serial hack instructions on his website. I am using Win7 and I can't seem to connect via IP address it only works with COM port. I tried the terminal console instructions for it's creation, but it's written for XP and I can't even find the network setup in win7. Has anyone been successfull in win7? Anyway i'll keep trying thanks again Gerber and helbot for your help.

Hi Mike 

Myself and FreddyA connect via IP connection in Windows 7. One question is your RSM on firmware V2. If not you will need to upgrade your RSM firmware to V2 as you can't connect via ip address on a RSM with firmware V1.Below is helibots instruction and the file you will need to upgrade your bot from firmware V1 to V2:


If you have already done the upgrade and are still have problems connecting via IP address I will dig out the notes I made to setup the IP connection to the robot in windows 7. Let me know if you need this info and I will upload it to my website(You'll just have to give me a few days as I will need to tidy up the instruction before uploading them to my website)

Gerber, Yes the robot is version2. Yes I would love this information. But I was wondering is there a difference between the 2 connections COM port / IP are there any benifits to the ip connection?

Thanks again

Howdy there Michael Walsh long time member. If I may respond to your question to Gerber. Moving from the simple com port connection to a TCP/IP connection is like night and day. With an advanced connection allows to open multiple console windows. That in itself blows to dust a simple com port connection. Adding to that you can manage the files on the SD card in a drag and drop environment. To top it off, with an IP connection you can access the web server running on the robot for endless possibilities. Night and Day.

I see you were also sucked in to the RS Media human slave drive willingly among the first elite. Welcome to the Wireless RS Media Club. You don't really choose to be a member, they choose for you.

Thanks for the reply FreddyA, I didn't realise the benifits of the ip connection. I thought the bluetooth set up was great. I look forward to upgrading and exploring. I love this website everytime I try the hacks and mods it's like unboxing the RS for the first time. I will inform of my progress, thanks all.
