How to connect 2 inputs to my TAPE in?
I'm just starting to get into a PC in my car (PT Cruiser) I;ve got a system working pretty well, and plan on going all the way soon. However until I get some better touch screen software for my XMPRC I;m sticking with my Roady for now.
So here's my problem...
I've got my stock CD/FM Tape Stereo in my PT supplying the AMP and control for my speakers. The input through a TAPE adapter in the cassette drive. Not the best but until I get the $$ it's going to get me by.
So I have a 'Y' 1/8' mini stereo plug adapter that I use connect to the TAPE adapter, one to my PC lineout, the other to my XM Roady. When I want to listen to XM I plug in the mini and leave my PC off. and Vice-Versa. Can I Put some diodes in-between to block the direction of output to only go to the TAPE adapter? so I don't have to keep un-plugging the 1/8" plug?
What I want to do is leave them all plugged in all the time without worrying about a feedback, or damage to any component. I thought of a switch, but it's NOT a good solution right now. I will eventually switch to using my XMPCR through my PC but I have a though time waiting for my PC to BOOT befoe I get any audio... spoiled!
can anyone help?
