                        What's this thread doing hidden way back here? If it weren't for your incessant bumping I wouldn't have seen it.

                        So if I order the cable found at this mouser link: http://www.mouser.com/Search/Product...zrx5IjRQ%3d%3d

                        Then I'll have exactly what you use - and has worked perfectly for you?

                        My HD Radio relay clicks on/off about 5 times during windows bootup and I suspect it has something to do with it being on COM1/serial. Do you experience this with your USB cable?

                        And $27 (+$24 for your cable + $40 for eBay Visteon tuner) = $91 << $200 HQCT tuner that doesn't support HD... Just let me know if this the exact cable you have and I'm in at whatever cost to avoid headaches.

                          krnpimpsta, i dont know why, someone on mp3car moved it

                          i dont reboot my pc much, i can and listen, the clicks, is your pc/windows prob looking at the port maybe for a device, and enabling DTR line, no big deal

                          yea, thats the one i use, works good, but keep in mind, im not a carpc user, so i dont suspend my machine... i could try it for ya... im not sure how RR works, do i just put the machine in suspend... while running RR, will RR detect that? and when resume happens, restart the tuner... that adaptor is FTDI, anyone else using FTDI based usb->rs232
                          i know most are the cheapie prolific chipsets

                          mitch

                            I don't suspend - I have a full desktop system that eats 200-250W in the trunk... so no suspending for me.

                            I'm just gonna buy the mouser cable. Too lazy to be on the front lines of debugging/troubleshooting.

                            Thanks.
