SkyFi connection with Celestron ne CGX mount

Just upgraded mounts from my trusty CG5 GT to the new CGX and cannot get a definite answer to can I conext my SkyFI 2 USB to the CGX hand controls USB mini? The CGX has only 2 serial ports on the mount and they cannot be used. The manual says to connect ASCOM to the USB mini on the hand control. Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Dave R.

    If I understand you, you have the new Celestron HC that has only a USB connection on the bottom, right?  Unfortunately, the SkyFi USB cannot control this.  When Celestron designed the new HC, they used a USB chipset that SkyFi USB does not support.

    The new SkyFi 3 does support the USB HC, but of course that would be another purchase.
