I am 99.9% sure the DKU-5 or CA-42 cable will work for the THD console access. I've used one of these cables to connect to soho router as mentioned here http://www.neophob.com/serendipity/i...l-Console.html and here http://www.neolics.com/pdfs/dku-5.pdf
Once I can find my cable (probably hidden in my closet) I will post results.

Five volts you say? Well I'm brave enough to try anyways. I can't see undervoltage causing any permanent damage. I wonder if a similar adapter exists at 5 volts since it is the default USB voltage after all.
I randomly stumbled across this http://www.nkcelectronics.com/rs232-...converter.html for the DIY kinda guy.

These look interesting:
I might have to order one.
Omikron, are you still planning on offering DIY 3.5mm kit for the THD?
EDIT: It looks like Mouser stocks these under the DLP Design brand about 20-25 USD.

HOWEVER, the two cables that I ordered had a very loose fit in all of the USB ports that I tried it on and I ended up losing the device in Device Manager every time the cord was bumped even a little. For reliability reasons I haven't recommended them yet, but they do work. I just find it a bit much to pay for a cable with a poor USB connector.
Here is another interesting gadget that should work great. Check the third and fourth image and you will see it can be configured in a number of different ways!
