Old ComStation for Minimed 507/508

Hi !

I was just wondering if anybody tried to do any hacking with ComStation… I am getting an old Minimed 508, until I get things with my insurance company covered and I was wondering about how to get data from this pump. I was told that you need Com Station…
So I was now wondering, if normal IR interface (now they are quite common, this IR things, buit in old times it was quite different) could be used instead of Com Statiion. I am sure this won’t work with original Minimed software, but I think it could work with other, or by simple reading of port… Has anybody tried something like that?

Take care
