it was a little over 9 dollars (ouch!). im having some trouble wiring it up though. maybe im just mis-reading the datasheet but pin 3 and 17 are a dead short, 3 is battery backup and 17 is a ground, so something is wrong here.

my understanding of the 20 pin connector is that the numbering goes like this

|2|4|6|8|10|12|14|16|18|20|
|1|3|5|7|09|11|13|15|17|19|

i cant figure out this connector. im getting nowhere right now. can someone take a glance at the datasheet and explain how the pin numbering goes? or maybe i had it right and i broke it

any luck? they started selling these on ebay for 10$ with free shipping. Would be great if someone got one to work.
