Nope, the DHV cannot be used as a console interface. If you have a M8192
(same setup I have) then your choices are roughly: DLV11 (I believe either
-E or -F will work; I am currently using M8028), DLV11-J (M8043, a 4 port
interface that uses special connectors; I've used this also), and there may
be a very few others. You need something that responds to the standard
console CSR/vector.

Don't throw the DHV out as that will still be useful for other things, just
not helpful as a console.
