    Yes, or any cable that converts the output of the Visteon unit to serial cable (which for the most part, the output of the Visteon is a COM port with a different pinout).

I have tried Radio extreme, silabs, and ADS radio modules, and this is light years ahead as far as performance and easy installation.

    Here is a link to where I purchased the package: http://76.27.122.50/index.htm#Receiver
    I'm glad to hear this is a good receiver. I picked one up on ebay for under $30 which I thought was an AWESOME deal, considering the cheapest on froogle.com was over $100. I'm going to install it this weekend to make sure it turns on and works and then buy a serial interface cable from Mitch.

    BTW, your link seems to be dead. Maybe its my school proxy or something.

    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.

    Does antbody knows how to embedd the software thet you can download from Mitch site.
    I try this, but the software runs on top of CF instead of inside the screen.

    I use the next name for the radio: HD Radio PCR, but also tried HDRadioPCR.
    Both gave me the same results.

    Let it run on top for now, in alitle bit, version 1.48 of CF will be released, with the HD radio software built into it. I think what your supposed to do is type the window name in the window box option of the setup.... but it seems when it comes to any type of media player, it never seems to embed, example: Sling Player

    Not to get off-topic, but man I wish we could embed Sling Player, or even better, have a plugin for it in CF. I've been using it quite a bit lately. It's awesome.
