Please bear with me as I have no electrical engineering knowledge at all.
I have a device with the following connection (and connecting cable):
which as far as I understand is called an SRT connector.
In every-day use it is connected with a 9-pin serial to another device, which then uses the same connection to transmit data (The small cable is the aux going into the serial, and then another cable leaves the serial, presumably using the other pins):
I would like to bypass the second device and connect the first device directly to my computer, through a 9-pin serial, and get the info it is transmitting. that is I would like to connect it to something like this:
which I'll then be able to connect to my computer.
Is such a thing possible? Suppose I somehow manage to find which of the Ring-Sleeve-Tip is for TX/RX/Ground, and I just build a cable that connects them accordingly, leaving the other 6 pins empty, will it work?
