Newbie question? What cable to use with Variax/Helix


Recommended Posts

Hi. I finally got my 89F and had got what I believed to be a variax cable.

Didn't turn out to be even though it says clearly that it is. It won't go into either the helix or JTV? I've attached a couple pics. What specific cable should I get? Also, anyone know if I can use a BOSE connection cable (T1 to base)? It looks the same and also carries power.

Thanks

That is definitely a VDI cable...not sure what's giving you the trouble, but you've got the right item. You can't just grab it and shove it in like a 1/4" though. It only fits in one specific orientation. I'm guessing you've just got it turned the wrong way...

Thanks. I definitely have been using proper orientation for the connector but it will not even try to slide in on the Jtv OR my helix. The cable that came with the Jtv goes in without problem. This has me baffled.
