The name pretty much says it all. Would you you the parallel port or the PS/2 port? Also, where would you connect it?

Hi Hello (your username is awesome!), welcome to the Botball Community!

What version of XBC are you using? If it's an XBCv3 (with the USB port), you should be able to use this cable: http://botballstore.org/product/create-roomba-interface-cable

The cable plugs into the round port on the Create, and into the TTL port on the XBC (I believe it's on the left side of the XBC robot board, below the Xport, but I'm not 100% sure on this).

Hope this helps.
