But I've checked twice, I had not only digest, but also messages to be sent by email.
Anyway, thanks, I get messages from the list now.

During the time I tried everything to make it work, I've already tested "usb:", and it worked when /dev/ttyUSB1 worked.
But in the README.libusb, it's stated that I should put visor in the blacklist.
I don't understand how both usb: and /dev/ttyUSB1 could function at the same time.

Is there a way to verify unique IDs on both Treos, by a pilot-link command for example ?
I travel a lot between two countries, so I get two Treos with 2 SIM cards, one for each country.
It's why I need to sync these two Treos.

I've already thought to this workaround. But another inconvenience is that, in gnome-pilot's settings, the "copy to PDA" is on the conduit, shared by both devices. That means that I have to change it each time, depending on the Treo I'm syncing. There is a great chance to make mistakes. It's better if this setting is on the device setting.

I don't know how Pocket Mirror managed to sync the two Treos, but it does it. May be it keeps track of unique IDs and a mapping between the two devices ?
Thanks very much.
