I also got my Visteon unit on Ebay, 50 bucks at the time, great deal. The reception is not 100% flawless, but it is leaps and bounds above any of the other hardware solutions including a Silabs stick with the antenna mod. I only have 3 HD channels in my area right now, but boy do they sound awesome.
For anyone who hasn't bought a cable yet from Mitch, make sure to get one of the latest run from him... he's made a change to the original design which fixes an issue (which I have unfortunately) that give a bad static-thump when you start up the unit. I still have to talk to him to find out how to do the mod myself.
The Visteon HD radio works great. We have a lot of HD stations here in the LA area, its pretty cool how they multi-cast, so they have 2 different songs on the same dial.
Mitch has a thread here for making that mod, it looks very simple.
@SciontC: There's currently 2 choices... A Direct unit or the popular Visteon HDZ300.
