Dude,

Go to an electronics store...preferably Tiger Direct cuz it's cheaper and get a USB 2.0 to RS232 serial adapter (15.99) and install the driver for it...Then it should be able to communicate with your predator...Don't ask me how I know...I went trhu hell too...

There is always WalMart ... you don't need anything but a 3-6 foot cable ... get a generic for like 5-10 bucks.

I hear your frustration ... I found the same issue with my tuner ... fortunate for me I had figured that with in 2 hours.

its a funny thing i went to a SuperWalmart right near my work and i askd if they had any 9pin cables and they told me thy had one for a mouse or something like that so i told them to show it to me and sure enough it was for a mouse and it was their only 9pin cable in stock so i dont think that will work so i just went to staples and got that stuped fancy expensive junk i waisted money on and the guy told me not to get a strait 9pin to 9pin cable that was like 9$ that i knew i could hook up to my pc so i figured he knew what he was talkin about so i took his word for it like a retard ill just have to return it

If I have a serial port on Vista, do I need a USB converter?
