Unfortunately I very much doubt it, different firmware, different software, completely different driver boards etc... in other words, completely incompatible.
EDIT: BTW I have not tried it, I am only making a guess that the two are incompatible, I cannot find any information to support that it would work.

Is the Meade able to be used vis computer without the HC connected? Could be an option until a suitable replacement can be found.
