    I was just about to order a tuner, but seems to be a good idea to hold back.

    As i see it there are problems with build quality and modules that for some reasons fails (go dead)

    Maybe the best and maybe even cheaper way would be to get a radio and take out the venice chip and connect it to a more pro made board.

    So it's on the CF supported hardware list but the plugin still doesn't work properly? Poor show really seen as CF and the hardware aint free.
    It is working fine for me using CF and several other people. The issues faced are only happening to a few people who I am communicating with via help desk ticket.

    You have several problems in doing (ie having to build a flasher board to flash the correct firmware, etc) this and it will end up costing you more than the board we sell.

    Better pay a little more and have it correct

    No need for a flasher board as the module is a pick out of a sony radio that do come with v5 slave fw on it and there are a RR plugin for that. As i see it the radio is arround 29 and the board can be done for arround 20, so it will not be near as much as the 65 you sell at. There is even money left for a nice little box to protect it.

    This is the way I see it... dont know what crazypug have on mind here
    Blessed are the "cracked" for it is they who let in the light.

    That board isn't DAB+ though so isn't future proofed and can't even support countries like Australia.

    I can only speak for myself, but in Denmark dab+ is of no use, i wonder if we will see it within the next 10 years, if DAB goes like everything else here it will not be before I move to the retirement home.

    Some of the sony radios have venice 5.1s in them which is a straight bolt in and receives DAB+
    The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.

    The slave firmware is the real attraction of the V5. Master firmware seems restrictive.

    Getting a new XDRS55 is probably better than getting a 2nd hand one then, or are talking about a different model? XDR-S10 I think is V7 isn't it?

    RR boys got their free plugin working ages ago, and is rock solid.
    I can confirm that, CF plugin is useless, u cannot use CF freely while using plugin, always think what you r doing, or comp hangs... at least.
