    mjs-scc1 no power cable help

    my mjs scc1 sirius usb shipped with no power cable. can i just use 2 wires and hook one to ground and the other to an ignition source or is the cable that was supposed to be supplied the one i need to use?

    Maybe Mitch has changed the design, but mine didn't come with a power cable. On the interface is a 2-connector green terminal (the kind where you stick the wire in and tighten the screw down onto it) marked with a "+" and a "-".

    One tip I'll give you when hooking up the MJS SC-C1 interface; hook the power up either to a constant source (it doesn't draw a lot of current) or grab 12V+ from your CarPC power supply. If you hook this to a switched source, you can have problems if you lose switched power for some reason (like if you boot the computer up with the key in the "ACC" position...and then decide the start the car).

    Thanks. Only reason I thought it came with a cable was b. It said 2 pin power connector on the box but I guess it was receding to the green part in the actuall Mjs unit. I'll just wire it to the battery. Thanks for the help.

    One thing you may not yet have realized...I didn't for a VERY long time...is that the power connector on the interface is actually a plug-in connector (at least it is on mine - again, I'm assuming he hasn't changed the design of it). The green thing with the screw-down connections actually will unplug from the interface...if you ever need it to.

    It doesn't look like a plug, but if you tug on it, it pops right out. So, you can do your wiring and then plug it into the unit.
