    Awesome awesome awesome!!!

    Thank you very much.

    I have this very same unit (DVH 940 + DVC 920) and I was about to install it when I saw the optical connector type mismatch, I am planning to connect the clarion unit to an spdif output from a usb soundcard.

    I searched this forum without any helpful results and also sent a few private messages to some people asking if it's possible to use the original cable + spdif end (I thought about using fiber ethernet connectors because I have some of these + a tool to "press" the heads, but your solution looks more clean).

    Do you need any tool for "installing" the toslink connector or all you have to do is to plug it in, close the lid and that's it?

    Thanks again!

    Strip some insulation from the fiber then stick the clear part into the connector and close the lid. Then smooth out the part sticking of connector until it's flush. That's it. Too simple for words.

    I have a question about this...I have the DVH 920 which is the older model but the same specs...I have the motorized screen/headunit in the dash which is alreadly connected to one optical input...There are two but the other one will not activate because its for a changer...So basically a cenet changer has to be connected to activate that menu screen...Is there anyway around this?

    I definitely don't know the answer to that one. My controller unit has a button to change between the inputs and that's about it. Since it's so simple, there is no menu stuff so my experience is pretty much useless.

    Hey grayvader,

    Are you incorporating a HU with this or just using your PC for input? Do you use the PC for media selection and the DVC920 to adjust the settings on the DVH940?

    I have the previous model like pimpmode (DVH920) and am trying to decide if I should connect the PC to the HU (Clarion HX-D10, no internal amps) via the RCA aux input or bypass it and connect via optical to the DVH920. Ideally I would hope by going with the first option I could use the HU to adjust settings, rather than fiddling with the DVC920. How is it working out so far?

    Thanks!

    Wow, I didn't realize how long ago this thread died.

    But to answer the last question -- I used the 920 to adjust the 940. The PC was connected straight to the 940. So, mainly the 920 was used to adjust volume and you could tailor the eq on it as well.

    Clarion dilemma

    I installed my optical wires the wrong way ! It would be too hard to rewire ! Can i just interchange the wire ends is it possible ?
