Does anyone have some information regarding the expansion port on the SB Controller?

As mentioned in https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?106280-Controller-won-t-boot&p=913772#post913772
I am having problems getting a Squeezebox Controller to boot, and I would like to see if U-boot is starting up and perhaps complaining about a corrupt flash image or something.

Does anyone know where to obtain a connector, or even just the pinout? Are the serial lines available on test pads on the PCB?

Any information regarding the serial console is appreciated.

Br,
Spiff

If you haven't got the expansion board given to beta testers there is little chance of using the serial port. The connector/socket is unusual and compatible parts were not identified and there are no details on the pinout.

That's too bad because I'd pay a few bucks for one of the expansion boards to fix one of my controllers.
