UART switch not working [EDIT: I got it working]
#1
So I'm attempting to boot OpenBSD on my PBP, which requires serial console access. So I have a serial adapter, and I've flipped the UART switch on the main board. According to the wiki, the sound should be disabled and I should be getting output on the serial port. However, the sound is not disabled and I get no output on the serial port. I checked the electrical function of the switch and it seems to be switching appropriately. Is this just a firmware problem? Has anyone else encountered this?

EDIT: I forgot Rx and Tx have to be switched on the host device to communicate with the target device. I have it working now! Thanks to @KC9UDX for the help.
