When you short the pins, is the cable still connected to your computers com port? You should be jumping the com port, not the cable. If you jump the com port, start the Frodo App, and wait about 10-15 seconds. You should start seeing information scrolling on the screen. This tell you that the app is sending the information out of the com port, and receiving info on the com port. Once you get that, then connect the serial cable (with out the jumper) and see if the Frodo app works on the XM unit.
I must add, that the info on the XM thread is quite misleading when it comes to the pin out of the cable and the connector. VERY MISLEADING AND CONFUSING.
I have a feeling that the cable was created incorrectly.
Let us know what happens.
