    Whats the best Sirius to CarPC hardware?

    I did my carPC last year, and havent really been on mp3car in sometime (car was in shop long time)...I want Sirius on the CarPC now and recall looking about 1 year ago and found that there was a device specifically that was made for this. What is the best...or should I say, current best method for sirius on a CarPC...I have a receiver, or can get a new device, doesnt matter...I'd rather keep my reciever in my other auto.

    Check out Mitch's page at rush2112.net for the adapter you will need.

    Ok sweet, thats what i was looking for , and remember seeing last year...

    So, I pick up the:

    - SIRIUS SC-C1 SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle tuner
    - SC-C1 USB Interface

    and that should be all to get sirius on the carPC right? What about the skins that RoadRunner people are making, i assume that it works with those devices?

    (excited)

    You're good to go. Not all RR skins are Sirius ready, even the default skin needs minor modifications to work with Sirius. Do a search on the RR skins forum.

    Yea, i checked it all out. I bought both of the devices in order to get this going. I've been using RR and DFX for sometime now, both support Sirius nicely.

    Already got tracking numbers, should see it by end of week.

    you can use your starmate, but it would not be controllable through the pc.... all you would do is connect the starmate to your audio in, and change channels through the starmate controls.
