Hello,

I tried to cat < /dev/mytty/ttyS3, but cat shows nothing. I attached here strace
  
cat < /dev/mytty/ttyS3 and cat < hello. Hello is just a file. As you can see the 

result of strace cat is identical, but in tty case I can't see nothing. Why does cat write nothing at my console?

Thank you,

you read "Hello World!" and you write "Hello World!" to the console

> read(0, "\376\377\377f\377\330\0000", 8192) = 8
> write(1, "\376\377\377f\377\330\0000", 8│║ f0) = 8

and here you read garbage from the input, so you write garbage out,
which probably confuses the heck out of your terminal for not being
correct UTF-8
