    I did some more testing and found that the 1/8th line out shielding is not grounded at all.

    I'm gonna bypass running the 1/8th audio line with the USB cable and make a hole in the unit and snake the wire out directly and ground the outer shielding.

    Here's the exposed shielding that goes nowhere. (I think)

    Another note.

    I was reading this very helpful thread: http://forum.sounddomain.com/forum/u...c;f=5;t=008251

    I now also think that powering the car antenna amp with the accessory on may also possibly cause noise? How many amps do you think it draws? I was possibly thinking of powering it with the PC power supply.

    Another thing I might do is ground the dlink unit to the grounding distro block.

    d-link is crapola!

    Guys, guys, guys, don't you search old threads??? I posted numerous times how bad the d-link reception is. Many people have tried putting metal boxes, soldering this, doing that, but why not go ahead and buy the hauphauge????

    Whats so special about the d-link? The wintv is about the same price too!! I have both and I can tell you that the d-links reception sucks ***! Hauphauge is the way to go, Just my opinion from someone who has both.

    Is the hauppauge USB?
    Also, does Media Engine or Media Car support it?
    BTW, Happauge is 20 mins from my house.

    This is what i did soldered 19 gauge copper wire at four coners of the board and soldered them together at the rca pin.

    Cut the ant cable and reverse meaning change the polarity what i have soldered is not ground.

    Ok then i cut the pin for the line in which comes from the D-link usb.

    Took a new stereo pin and soldered the left and right channel and didnt use the ground but used the ground from the Motherboard.

    Meaning a stereo pin has three wires left channel , right channel and common ground. so what i did was gave it the ground from the mobo..

    Try it worked for me
    Cheers

    So the blue circled area should be connected to the outer shielding of the antenna wire?

    Cause right now I have it connected to the center pin of the antenna cable and the reception is not that great.
