I have an Unitron Moxi fit 500.
I bought a Hi-pro serial and a Sonion CS44 cable from ebay.
I have installed Unitron TrueFit 3.4.
My computer with windows 10 detects well Hi-pro, but when I connect my hearing aid to hi-pro with cs44 cable and I try detect, the result is:“No hearing instrument detected for both sides”.
What can I do? Excuse me for bad language skill.
I’m guessing PVC will soon be here with an answer, but I’m guessing it’s not quite the right cable. I know Phonaks don’t use the standard CS44 cable and think that might go for Unitron. From what I could find on Unitron’s website, it calls for a “Type 4 cable” but have no idea what that means. I think you need to confirm that you have the correct cable and also the correct software. From the troubleshooting guide I found, those are the two things that could cause this error message (other than a faulty cable or loose connection) Good luck!
I found this on Unitron’s website http://unitron.com/content/dam/unitron-2014/documents/english/TrueFit/TrueFit%20help%20files/UnitronTrueFit_Cable&%20programming.pdf,
And from Unitron TrueFit 3.4:
It’s in the list, but does not recognize it.
MDB is right.
This cable reference shows the differences. Unitron is in with Phonak. It needs a pin switch.
Interesting, when I connect hearing aid to hi-pro, it starts, works without battery, just software does not recognize it.
Where can I do the pin switch?
Do you mean that? http://www.instructables.com/id/Hearing-aid-programming-cable-adapter-CS44-Oticon/
It would seem that cable would do the trick. Or one of pvc’s wonderful posts/threads here too.
Thank you very much!
It works! Thank you MDB, z10user2 and pvc! It is a life saver!
Did you get a proper cable or did you hack a cable like pvc’s post?
You should have bought a >>Squirrel<<. Er, I mean a >>mini Pro<<
I did hack like pvc’s post.
Hi-pro was cheaper, almos half the price (150 euro). When I ordered, the mini Pro was 300$.
Oh I see, very good job then! You should be proud.
Now you have the gear to program Phonak/Unitron with the DIY connectors, and the same gear can program most other hearing aids with CS44 cables only (and maybe flexstrips, boots, or pills).
