Forums and emails can be very frustrating at times. Just reading the words can suggest meaning the author never intended.
Jim, I am no wordsmith so have to apologize if my earlier post had 'attitude'. In hindsight I should have pehaps given your post 2 separate comments. I do thank you for posting how to avoid buying the cable. I focused too much on the connections and not enough on the intent.
I have a lot to learn about this whole subject as I have little understanding of the software or the hardware.
I hope you accept my appology. I DO appreciate all the help. Future posts will be more carefully written.
