It's the Gameport version.

The original gameport/midi port, that used to installed as standard on motherboards, then as a port  on some sound cards.

Is this the serial port unit? If so it may work with a serial to USB adaptor.. I use one of these for the CH pedals.

Just out of interest is anyone using the CH yoke (analogue), with Vista, or is this a big no no, now, with regards  to Vista's support of the gameport.

Yes, they are quite different.

One single Saitek quadrant will only provide controls for a single prop, or a twin jet. To get flexibillity across types you really need a pair; which I illogically acquired...

OTOH they are really well made and have a very nice feel to them. The graduated positions agree exactly with FSX's reading of them, via the Percent Thrust gage wot I made.

Reports on the Saitek yoke are also excellent but I've got used to my button assignments on my ageing CH Yoke, so I'm too lazy to upgrade.
