    Damn!!!

    I purchase and AOpen MiniPC and an XMDirect unit along with the custom serial cable...now that I've got it all and go to hook it up, I realize that the AOpen MiniPC has no external nor internal serial ports...am I screwed with the XMDirect (I have a XMPCR also) or is there a working Serial->USB solution?

    Well, I haven't tried it personally, but have you tried getting a Serial -> USB converter? They're fairly generic and I don't think any is better than another..

    Really?! Which model do you have? I'd rather use the XMDirect so having this work would be great

    I am using the XM direct with a generic adapter from Fry's Electronics. No special drivers either. Works native under XP.

    This is the unit
