Support Video 2 | “Troubleshooting a Connection Error”

Particularly on initial installation, some users experience difficulty establishing communication with the DSC Sport Tuning Software. This is usually due to a mismatch between the COM Port your computer is using for the CP210x USB driver and the COM Port the DSC Sport Tuning Software is looking for. In this lesson, we walk you through how to match your computer’s COM Port settings to that of the Tuning Software. Reminder: Always close out of the Tuning Software and disconnect and reconnect the DSC Sport controller after making any COM Port changes!
  1. Checking your COM port settings.
    • With the DSC controller connected, navigate to your computer’s control panel, then Device Manager.
    • In Device Manager, locate Ports > Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridgeand identify the COM port number. Example: (COM3)
    • Navigate to the DSC Sport tuning software. Go to Tools Serial Settings. Identify the selected COM port number.
  2. Matching your COM port settings:
    • Close out of the DSC Sport tuning software
    • Unplug and reconnect the DSC controller
    • Double check the COM Port number in your Device Manager
    • Open the tuning software
    • Change the COM Port to match the COM Port selected in your Device Manager
    • Check to see if you can now perform a Read All function in the tuning software.
  3. Resetting COM port settings.
    • In the Device Manager, locate and open Ports > Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge.
    • Go to Port Settings > Advanced
