    my guess would be no considering 90% of the people cant get the recommended brainstem to work with the DSATX. I have the recommended one and a hacked together one i found on this page and neither work unless the device thats reading the data from the brainstem is separate from your actual car PC.

      sonic, i thought according to an old thread i found
      http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/powe...ity-issue.html
      that if you supply power from a different source than J2, it will work OK..
      the USB one i think only has a FTDI chip in addition which is really a serial ---> usb chip much like prolific

              Yes, I'm on 113 or 114 I think, I have to use another computer with it. I don't have the usb cable, I have the original brainstem and a custom made usb cable that worked better, but not in all situations.

              I have yet to try powering it on externally, I'm just being lazy. I was just curious if there was a newer update. I haven't heard from Jeff from what it feels like to years. I wonder if the DSATX is still in production?

                  Thanks good to know, thanks for the info.

                  BTW, IIRC the problem is not the computer hibernating, is the DSATX going into deep freeze/sleep (say, batt below x level) and not coming back with IGN.
