power cable for TBS-6982 card
I have two of these cards
the older one has a 6 pin power connector and came with a power cable to tap into the power cables which are used for fans or an old DVD drive.
the new one has just a 2 pin connector
but the card came with the wrong type of power cable, it came with the same type of 6 pin cable as before.
Does anyone know where I can get the right cable? Or can I adapt the wrong cable to make the right one? If I knew the what voltage and which pin was which, I could do that.
I have an octal LNB with four ports used. In the past, I didn't have a problem with only one card having the external power feed, but now I am having problems as I replaced my TVH server with new hardware and this second card isn't working.

I asked TBS support and they said that the card power demand is 12V at up to 2A if there's motor control needed.
I might butcher an old molex to molex "Y" cable used for tapping power for a fan, to make a suitable cable for this card. Hopefully I won't blow it up, but I will test it in the old PC just in case ;-)

I bought a power cable and butchered it and thus powered my TBS card.
This molex to 12V header cable was £1.99 inc delivery
