I tried to connect as this image, but IR.EXE give me an error interface:

I noticed that a LED blink on interface

I connected as is:
Black = Upper center
Green = Lower center
White = Lower Left
Yellow = Lower Right
Blue and RED = Not connected


What error that I did ?

Is it possible that a URC-8811 is not compatible with FTDI USB FT232 adaptor ?
Does anyone have pinout to connect my FTDI USB adaptor (red, blue, yel,white,green,black) to my remote URC-8811 ?

Thanks

The 8811 is not a JP1.3 remote. It is a JP1 remote and is therefore not compatible with any RS232 interface. You'll have to by an additional JP1 EEPROM adapter if you want to use your cable or get a different cable altogether.

Ok, I understand a reason !

On my PC I don't have a LPT port, so , I'm obligate to go to my friend each time that I need to modify settin on my 8811 !

Where can I find details to build or buy this JP1 adaptor ?
Maybe that I can buy an (USB to LPT) adapter and use my old JP1 adaptor !

Buy: http://www.diygadget.com/jp1-1-1-1-2-1-3-cables/jp1-2-1-3-to-jp1-adapter.html

Build: http://www.compendiumarcana.com/jp1epa/

USB to LPT will not work.

It would be cheaper to sell your 8811 and replace it with a JP1.3 remote.
