      You have to have the software and a serial cable to re-program the m3 atx.

            Doesn't matter since it doesn't work anyway.

              I got it working after emailing with Mini-Box tech support. On my motherboard (MSI IM-GM45) the com port header's pin layout is not the same as the M3 cable (why aren't their standards?!), and they thought I might have fried the M3. But after adjusting the wires, I was shocked to see it get detected.

              Unfortunately, the maximum hard-off time you can set is 18 hours (I was hoping for 36-48 hours).

              Here is the M3 documentation that shows the cable's wiring:

              You have to find your motherboard's manual and see what its com port header's layout is. Here's a screenshot with the layout for my MSI IM-GM45 motherboard:


              And here's the M3 cable's layout (red=receive, white=transmit, and black=ground):

                I ended up frying one because the diagram on their website had the send and receive pins switched....glad to see you got it working though.
