Default Trouble setting up DX7 and JR11x with Aerofly 7 on MacBook Pro

I am having trouble and getting quite frustrated getting everything to work as listed in the thread title...

I downloaded the Aerofly 7 from AppStore onto my MacBook Pro under the incorrect impression I could use my old Phoenix usb interface.

I have now bought both the units as recommended and still no joy during the configuration phase

1) usb interface for RC7 (Ikarus p/n 3031010)
2) y- adapter cable (ikarus p/n 31036)

I have tried both my Spektrum DX7 and my JR 11x in both the on and off positions...

What am i doing wrong?

Please attach a photo of your cable connection from the radio to the computer.

Please strictly follow the attached connection diagram for Spektrum and JR

Are you connecting the controller to a native usb port of the computer or to a usb hub? Please connect to a native usb port of your computer.

You should disable the trainer mode in your DX7 or JR11x. Leave the DX7 or JR11x switched off before plugging in the adapter cable. The radio will automatically switch on when the adapter cable is plugged into the radio. The radio will not work with RC7 if it is manually switched on before inserting the adapter cable. You need to connect the radio to the computer before launching RC7.
