    Sirius

    What exactly is the best way to add sirius to my car PC? I have one of mitches ALPS1 based units and it works great but the interface is no longer available. I need something that will work with RoadRunner in my other car PC. What can i use?

    Thanks

    The SC-C1 or the SC-H1 are your options. The Mp3car store has the SC-C1 interface here: http://store.mp3car.com/product_p/sat-011.htm

    Mitch sells both interfaces on his website: www.rush2112.net

    FYI: The SC-C1 uses 12 volt power the SC-H1 uses 5 volt.

    I am using the ALP1 unit. Works ok. Works better with the older RR though, before mitch's rewrite...

    When you say interface do you mean hardware or software?

    Well at this point you can also buy the XM Direct and buy the USB Adapter. Remember Sirius and XM merged their channel line up. All the same channels are on XM and Sirius. To hear Howard though, you would have to get the best of Sirius.

    Since the rewrite, mine:

    * freezes
    * causes dll dump errors and crashes the system
    * makes the cache autoupdater spawn all the time rendering the PC unuseable. If it happens when I am delivering, then I have to pull the plug and restart since the car is not on in long enough periods to update so it starts over and over and over and pushing exit doesnt stop it
    * doesnt work coming out of hibernation
    * Randomly cuts out
    * And randomly when changing between music and sirius (not every time), it will not change the playlist. So listening to sirius, switch to music, and still the sirius channels are listed but with the album art. Nothing plays through the speakers. Or the opposite, switch to sirius and the dog appears but it is my music and nothing will play
    * Also when I go into standby with sirius playing my music doesnt resume from the same location if I switch back. If I switch between sirius and music before I go into standby it works fine.

    And non-sirius related a bunch of other things too like volume fade taking much longer than before to start up by a few seconds.


    This is all with the default BMV2 skin.

    My solution, go back to April 2006 version which works 100% flawlessly.

    I used to run an SC-H1 with Mitch's USB adapter box. If you soundcard has digital input then, the H1 is for you, otherwise the regular analog from the SC-C1 will do.

    of Mitch's 2 options, which comes with an antenna best suited for a car?
