The Serial Port vs HDMI for the console output

Mon Dec 21, 2015 5:40 am

If I disable the serial port as per this reference (http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/raspberry-pi-serial-port) so I can use if for other functions will it also eliminate the display I get on my monitor using the HDMI cable? Will the keyboard still function?

Thanks....RDK

Disabling the serial port will not affect the attached keyboard or console display.
