  • XM Questions.... (What should I get?)

    I have decided that I am going to get XM, however I don't really know much about it. I would like to be able to control it with Frodoplayer. Not sure what hardware I should get, I was wondering if anyone could give me recommendations which is the best bet for me to get.

    Well, the question is what _I_ should get (middle of the Europe). Bloody hell, I would like to hear US stations...

      I love my XMDirect and at $46 from best buy you cant beat it. Then you can just get the control cable and you are ready to go.

              and with the control cable you can control it with FP? And can you record off of it? How much a month is XM anyways?

                  PM me if you're interested in a monitor faceplate for your '99-'04 Golf or Jetta. My Vortex ID is NorthAtlR32 - you can IM me there, too. Go here for more information.

                    Check E-bay for XMPCR and TimeTraxx (sp?) Time Traxx is software that will let you record (pretty amazing stuff and very likely the reason XM dropped XMPCR) and XMPCR is the discontinued version of XM for a PC.

                      Control cable? Does this mean you have a head unit? Sorry I'm not able to visualize or find a control cable for a PC...

                            The cable is a serial cable that goes from the computer to the XMDirect to control it.
