DP-67 Coiled Cable - Valeo Backs

Does any active user out there actually own the coiled cable that connects the Valeo backs to HP IPAQ? It's similar to an ethernet RJ45 on one end and a 24 pin cell phone type / PDA serial port on the other end.

Here is a link to what was probably the last one ever sold on the internet: https://www.profilmdirect.co.uk/hp-ipac ... 3454-p.asp

I am going to build my own DP-67 cable out of an RJ45 cord and IPAQ serial-to-usb cord BUT I need to know the pin outs. It looks like the DP-67 uses these pins of the RJ45 head: 2, 4, 5, 7.

Here is a pinout for the 24 pin serial port: https://s3.manualzz.com/store/data/0289 ... 04e031.png However, I don't know which four pins I need to use. My guess is: VBUS, D+_HHS, D-_HHS, GND ... but that is a totally wild guess.

I have an IPAQ 210 and WiView and the "DP-67 software", confusingly named the same exact thing as the cable :evil:

I am aware some Valeo backs (including my 22wi) have BlueTooth. However, in order for the BlueTooth to broadcast, a digital magazine must be plugged into the back. And in order to configure the DIY digital magazine that I built, I need the DP-67 cable.

Any light on this subject will help, or an actual DP-67 cable out there I could borrow would be MONUMENTAL and would breathe a little life into these Valeo backs.

I know this is a rather old post but other leads have run dry...

Have you managed to find a solution?

I have a 22wi and can't find a way to get the bluetooth working.
I have a phase one DF with Valeo 22wi and dm-20gb. I van use it as a film back with no problem but no bluetooth and no digital proof... As possible digital proof i have a ipaq hx4700 with wiview

Ant help is appreciated!
