Anyway I ended up making a new cable and things seem to work OK now. But I do find that I need to start the computer without the SKY705 plugged in, open the SKY705 utility, plug in the SKY705, wait for it to link and then press "open G". Following this process with the new home made cable has made my unit work OK.
talk about de ja vu... its like you were at my house
I have PM'ed you but for the sake of other users, does your cable now communicate with,
1. the SKYARTEC TX software for TX config? - important otherwise it can render the TX useless for all but current config!
2. any sim programs? - for those of us who don't want a 'pro' simulator as suggested.
