I cut the barrel connector off the M1XEP's plug in power supply and wired it to the M1's aux power output to power my M1XEP. As stated above, watch the overall power drain.
Thanks. I thought it should be fine but it is good to get a confirmation. Now does anybody know where I can get a really short serial cable? I ordered the 17 inch ribbon serial from Elk but that is still going to be about 14 inches too long. Anybody know a source for a 4 or 5 inch serial cable? (Male to Female)
Just thinking out loud here..
you could make one with some radio shack parts.
you could unsnap the one end of the Elk cable and cut the wire to length and re crump the end. If it is one of those blue flat ribbon cable types. If it is and you do modify it make sure to pay attention to the connector and the red stripe.
