The cables from RT Systems also work flawlessly. You can get cables with or
without programming software

Hi Jeff,
Further to the discussion on the fake chips etc can only recommend to go for
the real stuff. No cheap FTDI imitations nor Prolific ones as I was running
constantly into a lot of (driver) problems. Long story but after some time
of driver problems decided to throw all cheap(er) ones out and go for the
100% real. Since than zero problems. Have the FT-736,FT-817 and IC-910 all
connected this way at the same time to HRD. All my problems were gone once I
decided to only use the original FTDI sets as eg advertised e.g. on
