    Exclamation Problems with XM Direct Cable

    I have been using the same XM direct cable for months. Recently I changed motherboards from the epia m1000 to the epia mII 1200.
    The problem I am having is it is not indicating a signal from my XM reciever in any software. It is all connected correctly just no data. Is there something more I need to do to enable the com port.
    Windows shows comport 1 and 2 as working properly under device manager.
    [EDITED]
    Problem resolved bad cable.
    Anyway, since then (with new cable) my computer does not allways boot up correctly from hibernation. Wont boot at all mater of fact. When shutdown completely it works fine. Is this a known issue?

    Do you have the pinouts for both motherboards? It may be different on the MII.

    Are you using the serial riser cable?

    Well I just looked at the MII and it has the same pinout as the onboard M10000. Are you sure you plugged it in the correct direction? The red line goes towards pin1.

    Problem solved, cable was toast. Removed the outer insulation to find the wiring melted together and brittle. Dont know why it happened, but it did.
    Oh well, made another works fine now.
