Jeff -
Is the address set correctly in the software? I don't know what it is 
for the 756Pro, the ProII is 64 hex.
There's nothing special about the cable.

When you turn on the CIV transcieve option from the menu on the radio and turn the VFO the voltage should  drop somewhat.  I have double checked to make sure the baud rate is set correctly on both the radio and programs. I have also checked my computer and there are no conflicts on the serial  port - COM1.
