    Try grounding the sheilding in the cable. Did you make the cable or buy it? Are you using an XM Direct or PCR?

    Make sure the shielding on both sides are connected as well. I didn't have them connected and right when I connected them frodoSat started working.

    also make sure that it didnt find the XMD as a serial mouse, check the device manager under mice

    if it's there just disable it, dont delete it. then reboot the computer and it should work

    and try this program, which will at least show you if your getting packets to the XMD you should see both S and R's in the window

    Maybe a stupid question, but when you say it is setup as port 1, you do mean that you edited the .ini file and changed it to port 1 right? Just making sure.

    I have the same issue when I use FrodoSatelliteRadioXAlpha3. It just sits there and keeps updating but nothing happens. But when I use the the embedded XM player within Frodoplayer front end it connects immediately and works just fine. I think I have edited the ini file correctly (but I could be wrong). My XM is not activated though so could it be that it cannot complete updates because it cannot find all the channels?
