I have neither experience nor equipment to tinker with soldering and ampermeter. If nothing else turns up, I might have no choice, though, and end up following your advice. Or rather, get help from someone who has the necessary tools to pull it off.
Still hoping for a ready-made solution, a cable that works out of the box. The one I bought does not. Judging from the colors inside the jacks, the wiring does indeed cross over. And yet, it has malfunctions. And when I fire up Agent, one side of the UHK goes dark.
I am sure there must be cables out there, that others have used successfully. Hopefully, one of them reads my post and can link me to Amazon or any other vendor.
Thank you blaise, I really appreciate it.
Seems like RJ9 jacks are ubiquitous in the U.S., but over here they are hard to get by. RJ11, RJ12, RJwhatever — no problem at all. But to find an RJ9, not to mention cross-over…
Anyway, good to know what works and that I can order them from abroad. Thanks for the link!
Thank you Makami. Also for letting me know to better steer clear of the 4m version.
When zooming in on the product image, it does not seem to be cross-over at all. As usual, German Amazon says nothing about the wiring, whether it is cross-over or not. I would have never dared ordering it. Really interesting that it works for you. And very confusing. I assume, the real cable is indeed cross-over, in contrast to the product image.
Meanwhile, I have already ordered a cable from overseas. Not coiled, non-spiral.
Glad to have this forum and getting so much feedback!
I’ve set up both halves with a couple of vivo arm rest supports, but obviously the bridge cable is less than ideal as I have to keep plugging/unplugging it to stand up. I’m actually afraid of wearing down the 4P4C ports. Is there any change I could get a 2m non spiral cable to pass it around the back of the chair somewhere, maybe custom made? Or is it not feasible for this distance?
edit: actually just found the ebay link in the KB. Straight / 10 ft / Black should work right? Or does it have to be reverse?
