I am experiencing a slow booting with opus 90. Around 45+ seconds. I am using epia 10000 with 5400 10gig hard drive only for now. When I tried to power the pc at home using atx 300v power supply from desktop, the boot time decreased at least by a double. Moreover, the Opus does not survive the cranking, and the system reboots every time I start the engine. Sometimes I also have problems starting the pc with the vehicle turned off, and I have a Optima battery that have higher Cranking power.
Do I need a second battery to survive cranking add give Opus enough power to boot faster? Or I should have used the desktop power supply? Please help!

I was have tried the both OPus and atx 300wt supplies today, and the 300wt is way faster. I was reading here that some people have 15 sec in boot time with opus 90, but I donít know the battery set up they have.
How did you wire the Opus up?Originally Posted by shak

My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
It will be done sometime in the next generation.

The yellow wire to battery, red to power remote. I used the same line as to my amp so the big wires will provide enough power
This is from my head, but I think he is right. The opus color code system went opposite from any head unit I have seen, so I think he is correct with yellow to battery
[------X---] 70% done, though that number goes up and down all the time
