Where to plug in pendant on PD4655 wildkat

OK, I have looked for 20 minutes and cannot find anyone explicitly saying where I am supposed to plug in the telephone cord style plug into the progressive dynamics PD4655 TV converter. I did find one person showing what looked to be the pendant being plugged into this orange four pin header, towards the front of the unit, but they had a different connector. Mine is most definitely a Telephone style connector, with much closer space pins than the projecting pins on the board. If I am missing another part I am going to be very disappointed. But better to know than not!

I've installed two PD4655's and three pendants all bought from Randy at bestconverter. All of my pendants had the proper connector to plug directly into the four-pin orange-brown connector on board. I never had to cut and splice.

Thank you azflycaster. That is crazy that an adaptor (or, heaven-forbid, the correct connector) isnít included. Itís a good thing I am handy with a soldering iron...though I doubt Iím going to have the correct female-plug to match that header.

I did order it from randy and Iím sure heíd make it right, but I canít be sitting around waiting for part after part, not to mention Iíd need to rewire the pendant.

Well, to update my own thread: I guess someone was having a bad day at the Progressive Dynamics factory on the day my board was shipped. Not only was I missing the adapter plate, I received the old version of the pendant, which has a phone cord plug on it. The adapter (apparently/hopefully the new version?) has the wider spaced pin header.

Randy is making it right, but dang these screwups have cost me 2 weeks of waiting.
