Hi guys. I have tried sourcing an RS232 [9 pin] cable with pins 3 and 4 swapped so I can update the software on my MX (1C) 900 Sat Rx. Anyone know where I can buy one? How difficult would it be to cut and rewire an RS232 standard PC cable? I would be grateful for any info.

It's easier just to buy a Null Modem cable from ebay...
