Rob has them listed as back in stock in his market place thread. I don't know if he lets them go without purchase of remote or not. Go to that thread and ask.

I just offer cables as a service to people buying remotes, I don't really make any money on the cables themselves, so if you're just looking to buy a cable by itself, you should try one of the vendors. DIYgadget.com sells the USB cable.

I AM NEW TO TRYING THE JP1 PROCESS WITH MY URC-8810 REMOTE.

MY LAPTOP DOES NOT HAVE A SERIAL PORT, SO I GOT A SERIAL TO USB ADAPTER CABLE FOR IT.

CAN I USE THE SIMPLE JP1 CABLE WITH THIS ADAPTER? OR DO I HAVE TO GET THE USB ADAPTER DISCUSSED HERE?

THANKS

The Simple Interface is actually for the parallel (printer) port. The Serial Interface bit-bangs at the hardware level and won't work on a USB port with a USB-to-Serial adapter. If you don't have a printer port available, you'll need to USB Interface.
