    using either a PC (overkill), or a simple micro, with one of the chips
    designed to allow it output video. It is going to involve a lot more than
    a simple 'converter'. This way, the data carried by the RS232 signal, is
    converted into text to display (just as you can carry the mixer 'on' the
