    Yeah, the 2 pins we figured out earlier that you had to jumper to turn it on. I believe they are actually pins 5 and 7, but we were calling them pins 3 and 4 for easier reference.

    Even though the remote turn on wire from the stereo is giving 12volts it may not be able to handle enough amperage (current) to turn on the OPUS--it's made for a low power stereo amp turn on circuit.

    Have you tried using larger wire? If you use to small a wire (20 gauge) it will not be able to draw enough current.

    The problem with this idea guys is that his Opus is staying on. The opus doesn't flicker does it?? If you sit there and plug and unplug the remote wire over and over, what will the opus do? Are we looking in the wrong place?

    i dont know. I will have to test this tomorrow.

    But i was reading over the opus manual and it says that green/white pin should be pluged into pins 8-6. both of these are shown to be in the second row.

    On your motherboard??

    No man, we already figured out the pins on your motherboard. It wouldn't have powered up if we were using the wrong pins. Don't go crazy, stick with what you know.

    no, im using larger wire now. Im saying when i was using 20awg wire to run my pc with my itps and 70w power supply, the damn thing actually worked. Even with a 3.5hd needing power.
