Ex-Link Cable for J/K/M/Q Series
Wired ExLink cable
On Q series Ex-Link port is located on bottom of OneConect box, next to CI slot.
In this case, you need to make Ex-link cable by connecting JACK male to the USB-COM adapter (not TTL/LVTTL) as shown below.
Or you can use regular COM port, if your PC have it, but in this case you have to connect pins in reverse order (from left to right) as shown below. You need 2, 3 and 5 pin.
If your PC does not have COM port (like many pc`s nowadays), you can use cheap USB to RS232 COM Port Serial PDA 9 pin DB9 Cable Adapter .
