Is there a illustration for the pin out from the USB cable to the 6 pin Dupont block connecter ?, can't seem to find it in these forums.

No diagram, but here's how to correlate pin numbers to the various functions of the USB to serial cable.

So it says not to connect the CTS or VCC wires, so this means I can get the 4 wire version instead ? they are much more cheaper than the 6 wire version.

"Anyway, don't attach either CTS or VCC. CTS can confuse the communication with the remote, and VCC (if it is +5 volts) can possibly damage the remote."

The interface only needs a ground, RTS, RX and TX lines. If you get one with a 3.3 volt VCC, then you may be able to use relatively worn out batteries while uploading to the remote.
