    Buy an XM Direct at Wal-Mart or and audio store, and buy or build a cable.

    Or, check ebay for an XMPCR.

    Frodo I bought the timetrax package, can I use this thru their usb cable with your xm plugin? It includes an XM direct unit, a timetrax unit (guess this converts it all) and all the cables. The whole thing plugs in thru the usb port.

    How does this compare to the commander? I hear you can set up the commander to be able to play and display thru the commander display and the PC at the same time, so would be nice for those times when you dont have your PC hooked up or on.

    I've never had the opportunity to test the timetrax unit. I don't know if they work
    or not.

    I am currently using the Timetrax unit and it does work with Frodo. I am having problems with the audio only playing in mono though...
