    The header found in the EPIA's labeled I2C is actually an SMBus header.
    SMBus is an I2C subset which is primarilly used for temp sensors.
    It does not support the whole I2C protocol or bus speed so is a no go.

    That is what I was wondering right there, thanks for the info man! I am patient and will pick one of these up when they are available. I have a Terk FMPro FM antenna that sits in the back window that will work perfect with this device!!!

    Hmmm, that antenna looks like it was designed for the home use.

    I tested it on a boat, works like a charm. I have a Grand Marquis and it fits perfectly across the rear dash and the reception is nuts! You don't "have" to power it externally but it definitly helps the weaker signals through. I got it cheap online so can't go wrong. It uses a basic coax connection so I just need a barrell adapter to get to the RCA plug on the Dlink USB tuner or hopefully this unit they are making now. Can't wait!
