Unhappy Raymarine 2000 Plus Tillerpilot connect to Garmin GPS?

Trying to connect both my VHF (for DSC) and my TillerPilot to my Garmin 76Cx.

Got the VHF / DSC working, thanks to Sailnet forum notes on Garmin NMEA grounding practices.

Cannot get good signal on TillerPilot, just get the "No Signal" error display. Have re-connected and re-checked wiring. Have reversed wires in case I had connected backwards. Rechecked that wires are in correct slots in connector.

DSC position indocator continues to work fine. Same problems with Tillerpilot whether radio is on or off.

And, yes, I do have a route set up and active on the GPS. Other than this "No Signal" issue, the Tillerpilot seems to work normally.

Note: The boat is on the hard, in my back yard, for a bunch of maintenance.

Suggestions???
