Star Seek wifi from Orion

Anyone else see this?
I have tried everything mentioned under the support page on SkySafari.
Btw, yes the SS works with the Orion hardware, but to be sure, I also tried this with the Orion StarSeek app, same problem.

Looks like their cable quality control needs a little help.
The unit itself works great.

Maybe some pictures would help. I am totally confused here.

I meant to take a look at these cables again last night, but lost track of time, I will work on this tonight.

I got that message when I plugged my Sky Commander into the Star Seek unit and tried to connect with the iPad. The problem in my case was that the wire was not correct, I had to make one with the right pin positions. So are you sure you are using the right wire? Even when I made the correct wire, both ends are the same size plug, but each end is specific for each device so I had mark the ends to remember which on goes to the Sky Commander and which end goes to the Star Seek. Perhaps you have the same situation?
I have heard conflicting accounts about the requirements to make a StarSeek / SkyCommander cable. Do you have a schematic you could share?

If so, here is a diagram I made that shows the wire connections, you are looking directly at the ends of the wires in this diagram. These are the actual colors of my wires but obviously the colors do not matter, you need to make the connections shown.
