    I am still using my old Serial Programming cable with my very Old desktop for the downloading to NIRT, but it is hell when I have to take the Transmitter back to company for any re-programming, because as many knows the old serial cable doesn't work in most new Serial ports or cables. So, it is a bit supprised to know that a USB downloading cable is released LAST YEAR! However, I couldn't find any details or part number so that I could request it locally....where is it in the online caterlog?

    NIRT to USB connection

    Can someone tell me which way around to insert the 4-pin in-line header plug into the NIRT?

    The instructions say "orange dot to orange dot". I have an orange dot on the USB lead but there isn't one on the NIRT.

    So- looking at the front of the NIRT with the face-plate vertical and the indicators at the top and the IR LED connectors at the bottom, is the orange dot adjacent to the lowest of the 4 pins or the top-most?

    (It may not make a difference but I don't want to fry the unit)

    Thanks

    Phil

    The silver pins on the connector face the back of the unit. When holding the unit and looking at the back of it, with the programming cable plugged in, you should see the silver pins.

    You won't fry the unit by plugging it in the wrong way, it just won't work.

    Lowest (see pic)


    The original NIRT didn't have any indication of pin 1.. when we updated the programming cable we added the dot to indicate pin 1.

    Out of interest - what's the build date of your NIRT?

    Thanks so much for your swift replies.

    She was born on 9 March 2007 so is probably too long in the tooth to be wearing orange around her receptacles.
