    Hyperterminal will work fine with your PIC so long as you are using
    ASCII. If you'd like to veiw the HEX values, I would reccommend
    using RealTerm. There is really nothing new to learn as it has
    basically the same interface with some added intuitive features.
    This tool has been great for debugging prototypes in my experience
    though I do still use HT from time to time as it has a cleaner look
    for presentations. Converting TTL/CMOS levels is a must. I agree
    that this is likely the problem. Try using a MAX232 chip or a module
    like the one from www.circuitblocks.com . I prefer the module for
    prototyping just to have a cleaner more solid feel and max232 for
    finished circuits. Note that ST and SIPEX also make IC's for this
    purpose which might be slightly less expensive. (ST232 and SP232).
