JP1.2 Access to DCH3416 Remote?

After reading some posts, it seems I can access the remote for my DCH3416 using a JP1.2 cable, some free software and my computer.  Has anyone done this?  Does it allow you to download a backup of the current settings?  Or, is this more trouble than it's worth?

Re: JP1.2 Access to DCH3416 Remote?

I've done it, although I've only done a bit of experimenting with the Comcast remote, as I don't normally use it. I normally have another OneForAll that is JP1 (JP1.0) that otherwise works the same. You can add codes, create a custom layout for your device, etc...

You can find full details here:

The JP1.2 interface requires a serial port. It WILL work with a USB-to-serial adapter.

Cool.  Thanks for the info.  I'll see if I can score one.  I've already downloaded the software.

There are links to where you can buy pre-made cable, or parts to make your own. I built my own JP1 cable (and had to buy a parallel port card for my new computer), but bought the JP1.x cable.
