RF8+DX6 Without Dongle possible?

I am wanting to use my old DX6 tx for RF8, but I don't mind a tethered connection. Can I use a USB cable to my buddy box port or do I HAVE to buy the dongle? I as able to find a cord on Amazon for 25% of the price, and I'll be seated anyways as I have an Oculus rift setup so I don't mind the cable.

Thanks in advance

If you can make windows see the controller as a game controller it would work. If not you will need a USB dongle of some sort that changes the ppm input into something that windows can understand.
