I am thinking of replacing my alinco with  my ft857 for remote control because I cannot cat the alinco.

my question is after reading the posts in the forum I see to use comm 2 on the radio end and plug the 8 pin mini din cable from the radio into comm 2, however should it be a ttl level convertor like a CT62 cable? The ones with a db9 on one end are female so I would have to use a MM coupler to plug it into the radio end comm 2 port on the remote. OR I see a cable Y7 diagram(page 147 manual) using the remotes TTL jack to the mini din, but with only tx, rx, and gnd  you lose speakers and power switch

then on the control end I set comm 2 to use usb and just plug a ubb cable from it to my pc running the software?

I was able to cat control my alinco when it was one piece with a clone ew7 cable and driver8 software successfully.

Now that I am operating remote it cannot find the radio. The cat cable plugs into he speaker jack and the usb cable is recognized by my PC but the software cannot find the radio. R* or HRD or anything else

I believe the processor is in the head unit so it should be talking to it directly and not to the radio over the network(I am assuming)
