Spartan3a DSP Vid Kit Board Serial Port troubleshooting

Board: Spartan-3A DSP S3D1800A Starter Platform

How can I troubleshoot wether or not the serial port is working?

 

As described in this guide: 

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/boards_and_kits/ug485.pdf

 

I should be getting some output to my hyperterminal window - I get nothing...

All the other tests in the section 'Verify that the Spartan-3A DSP 1800A Dev Platform is Functional' work as described.

I've verified my PC settings and cable and they are good.

 

Does anyone know of any problems or things I can check?  I'm afraid I may have to scope it.

 

(is there a Xilinx Engineer listening out there?)

thanks
