OK just got off the phone with my contact person.
Her daughter is doing great and the tumor was removed. It was determined to be non-malignant so the entire family is very relieved. The daughter still needs to see the oncologist next week but so far the news is great.
Anyway she's back in the office and will work on the orders on Monday. I still don't have exact pricing or timing but I'll be walking her through the order and should be able to provide expected delivery dates later next week.
My apologies for this taking so long. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
I think in the end it will be worth it.
Nimrod has ordered one 18" Lq9D161 cable.
Guys (and gals?) just a warning to you all. If you order the LQ9D161 cable you will NOT be able to cut them in half and rewire them as 1 to 1s.
I've requested that the grounds be connected together in the header and then the ground wires be connected from connector to connector. This seems like the best way to do it since on the controller side there are only 5 grounds and on the LQ9D161 LCD side there are 9 grounds.
So if you have any doubt of what you need, I suggest you order the 1 to 1 cable and rewire it yourself to the pinout you want.
Hope that helps. Let me know over the weekend if I should change your order.
Please note: I will confirm that the pinout they build for the LQ9D161 works with my Allen controller and the DennisK screens I received. Once that's confirmed I'll put in the order for the remaining LQ9D161 cables. They won't leave my house until they work with my setup! I will test every cable prior to shipping.
