CM19A

I obtained a CM19A at a garage sale and hooked it up to the serial port and

codes. Am I doing something incorrect?

There was no software as it was on the table in a plastic sandwich bag. I suppose I'm out of luck?

I apologize for the confusion.

I have gotten it to receive and display codes transmitted from a KC674. Now I have to look for a freeware and an interface to the power line. Thanks much to everyone who assisted me with their knowledge.
