Sirius Usb Interface err... RS232
I have made a USB interface for SIRIUS Connect radios from Directed Electronics.
basicly i allows the unit to be connected to PC and controlled by a pc
just like XMPCR
Im about ready to market it, hardware wize im done... software is still in development, i mean FANCY software, like for TT for xm... I have a DOTNET dll class that fully controls the unit... and could easilly be used in any carputer app. What i want to do is Give one to someone who will test it in a car for me, i didnt directly design it to work in a car... we all know about the cars wonderfull environment. my ANALOG audio is referenced to ground, which is fine at home, but might be a issue in car, I ofcourse have optical out on it, and that clear wont have any ground loops
now if someone is interested in betatesting it, pm me
i know ill get a few... and ill just have to sort through them
i need some marketing done too... and instructions... and well quite a bit
some of you already know my XM products
I have a programmer lined up. I would love to hire George Hatchew, to do it... those who dont know he did xtremePCR. I could code my own... but im just a OK c# programmer, and not suited to do the work.
but the programmer i have now, is a very good c# programmer, and will begin to develope nice sw for recording and such. im sure with the .dll i have, someone could implement it into existing carputer sw
are people interested in this?
as for which Sirius connect you need... it doesnt matter in a way
the connectors i have line up exactly with the SC-FM1, but a $50 SC-ALP1 will work, just dont put the lid on, or make ur own holes..
NO soldering... just open, pull out existing board, drop mine in
I dont know exact price, it wont be too bad...
i need to know if there is some real interest
here is some pictures
