Hi Sylvain,

Yes, I can confirm that the cable I wrote about is 100% solution for current and older machines. The FTD232RL chipset is working on all MacOS (even the old Classic MacOS with USP support - so if you have old Mac with USB and you run Classic 9.2, you can use this cable too). I’ve tested my cable with Ventura. Working like a charm.

About the software: NCX have some glitches on now MacOS. But it is nothing problematic. I personally use NewTen app (on UNNA) to install the packager. NewTen working very well.

I will order more cables and I will prepare separate announcement here.

Best regards,
Pawel Piotrowski
