Homechoice: Unsupported Operating Systems

What cabling do I need to connect to Homechoice using a Mac G3?


The solution is a cable mac serial (DIN-8) 2 standard 9  pin serial (DB-9)
I have Mac din-8 2 male DB-9 pin serial and it works.

The mac serial connector is the one that goes to the modem or the printer
connector (same same).

PC- ONE (If male goes 2 the STB - If Female Goes 2 the cable provided by HC)
