Hi
I've searched on this and can't find a conclusive answer - which cable do I need for this remote?

As far as I can tell, it's a JP1 (EEPROM) remote, but could be wrong.

If so, will any JP1.x cable work or do I need a JP1 EEPROM specific one? Can anyone link me to the right thing to buy?

Thanks in advance

The URC-8060 is an old remote, but if memory serves, it has holes rather than pins, and I think the pins are positioned in such a way that you can't just solder in a 6-pin as it would block the batteries, and therefore you need a custom connector with pogo pins. I could be mixing this up with one of the US models though, so please correct me if I'm wrong. Nobody has made the pogo-pin adapters in ages.

But if that's not the case, and you do have a 6-pin connector in this remote, you will need 2 items. First, you'll need a regular FTDI or Prolific cable from ebay, which will serve as a JP1.x cable, and then you'll need a legacy JP1 adapter from DIY Gadget.

All the details are here:

I think because of how thin they are it is not likely to have pins
On my RS 15-2133 Kameleon which looks like the urc-8060
there is holes right at the battery cover when removed.
I lucked out on this one though because the holes are plated
all the way through so i just used pogo pins plugged into my cable
and was able to download, have to hold the cable so the pins touch the sides of the hole but it is easy to do. So it is possible that the urc-8060
may not be that difficult to get working,especially since there is already
an RDF for it

I bought a URC-8060 used many years ago, but I have never used, or even tried it. Wink

Opening the battery cover (requires a Phillips screwdriver!) shows 6 holes and it appears that, with somewhat developed soldering skills, it should be possible to solder pins to it. It appears that it may not be possibile to mount the battery cover after that, but on the other hand, it has a bulge, so appears to me that it should be do-able, possible after cutting the pins a few mm shorter than usual.

You can make out the holes on the left side of this pic:

As an alternative to soldering pins in place, would it be possible to just fill each hole with a small blob of solder and then use either a pogo-pin connector or a sping connector? This assumes that the backs of the holes actually connect to anything on the board.
