I connected to my tv box through a UART port on the chip and established a serial connection using screen like this:

sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

When I hit enter I get shell access and ability to interact with the operating system. Hoever everytime something is printed on the screen the shell gets interrupted and whatever i was typing gets cleared, then I would have to press enter again and start typing the command all over again.

How do I prevent this behavious?

    Since you're using screen, can't you just press ^A^L to force the terminal to be redrawn and get rid of whatever it was that the kernel is presumably crapping out to the serial port? – DopeGhoti Apr 2 '16 at 16:50
  • It doesn't change anything, I keep getting this message sending discover... every few seconds and it messes up whatever command i was typing. – razzak Apr 3 '16 at 9:26
