I am aware that if you donâ€™t have or want to use a BT connection to connect your laptop to your Merlin head then you need to construct a cable with a little bit of soldering and the addition of some resistors.
For some, the thought of soldering anything to anything is daunting especially if the consequences of getting it wrong could result in a broken head, or computer.
I am one of those people and before I try to stumble my way through an electronics guide book and cobble a cable together, I wondered if this would work.

I could be missing something here though as I have very little understanding of electronics so any advice on the subject would be fantastic.
