Wiring looks correct (TX to D2, RX to D3).

Were did you download the firmware? Please post the link.

You can try Bootcamp for installing windows on Mac. I was successful using Gimx on Macbook through bootcamp.
Thanks! I'll give this a try.

I followed the guides in the wiki;

https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=DI ... or_dummies
https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=DIY_USB_adapter

both link to http://gimx.fr/download/gimx-firmwares

I also tried to load the firmware that comes with the Gimx installer, as well as https://github.com/matlo/GIMX-firmwares

I have tested the Teensy with the LED test firmware, and it seems to be working as expected. I would assume that means that my Teensy is legit, but is there anything else that I can do to test the board?

Here is a video of the test. https://photos.app.goo.gl/KHrlpjolD4JmgEeC2

I have tested GIMX versions 6.8-6.11, in order to be through. I have re-downloaded the firmware from https://github.com/matlo/GIMX-firmwares/releases, and tried both the G27PS3 and the PS3 FW's.

I'm still seeing the same results, though I have not tried on a different computer yet. I have been too lazy to do the bootcamp thing and install Windows on my MacBook. I suppose that is all that is really left to try and then either order an official adapter, or forgo using my OSW on my PS3. I'm struggling to see how it could be my PC though.

Hi,

I looked at your USB to TTL board,
https://photos.app.goo.gl/L9dOAqHWs5rZeQ522

This was exactly my first board testing Gimx in the past. And I was failed, that board didn't work. Then I tried with other board and gimx worked great.
So you'd better try again with another board. Like this:

I picked up a new USB UART board, and I'm still seeing the same async connection timeout error. This is the new board http://tinkersphere.com/electronic-comp ... elper.html

Maybe the Teensy is defective.
Something you can check is continuity from the CP2102 to the atmega32u4 pins.
The RX/TX/GND pins of the atmega32u4 are described in the datasheet:
