Serial binding not showing received string from serial port

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: eeePC i.e. ATOM N270 CPU, 2GB RAM. Planning move to RaspberryPI4 later
    • OS: 32-bit Windows 10 Pro, eeePC does not support 64-bit
    • Java Runtime Environment: Zulu 11.0.14
    • openHAB version: 3.4.1
  • Issue of the topic: I am running rollershutters from Selve through a serial interface.
    The serial binding is working as I can control the rollershutters from OpenHAB successfully.
    In the next step I am trying to read the rollershutter position which is sent back through the serial port.
    I can see the messages when connecting to the serial port with hterm.
    I configured an item in an attempt to see the received string and from there write a rule to extract the position of the rollershutter.
    I think I am doing a very simple stupid mistake but I don’t get a hand on it.
    Therefore the communities help is very much appreciated.
    I prefer textual configuration over GUI-configuration.
