Do you mean that the cat5 cable that you used to connect from the output of the xp8 to their rj45-DB9 adapter is the cable you switched the wiring on pins 2 & 3? If so I am pretty sure that is not correct and that is why you are not ableto control the display.

I typically pull the adapter apart and switch the 2 pins on the 9dsub connector. You can pick up a pin insertion / extraction tool at radio shack for $5 or less. I think you need a typical network crossover cable if you don't want to do that. It's been a while so I'm not positive but check the XP-8 manual. It tells you the pin configuration on each side of their adapter and from there you can make your "patch cable" the way you need it.

those commands should work but you can also use a zero instead of the 1 for the set id

Have you gone into setup and set the unit ID? Out of the box the unit ID is 00. You'd have to set the unit to ID 01. Or try sending the string with a unit code of 0, ka 0 1\r
