    i-hacked doesn't appear to offer the cable anymore (their "cart" feature on the website doesn't work). Is there anywhere else I can buy one of these already made and working?

    hey guys,

    the version of the xmd1000 on the first page has the grey logo on top. the ones for sale here have a yellow logo but same model #. is there any difference in the 2 units? can i still do this cable hack?

    chris

    No difference - just picked one up a few days ago, got a cable from WebDog, and it works like a champ.

    I bought two of these cables from Webdog and they work perfectly.

    I am using frodo's standalone XM app, this is my first install with XM and it rocks.

    Kudos to everyone here for the info
    Spent all my money on carputers now I have to work a real job.

    Thanks to everyone for some great info. A couple points I would like to add which may be confusing to the noobies.

    1. Even if the cable you are using to hack has the same colors, orange, blue, brown, yellow etc. It doesn't mean that those cables match up to the proper pins on the connector you are leaving on the cable. You must test which wires correspond to which pins - easiest to do with a MM and a continuity test. Simply set your mm to measure continuity and put one probe to a wire color and then probe all the pins on the connecter to find out which pin corresponds with that color.

    2. I didn't see it mentioned here, forgive me if I missed it, but there is another connection you need to make after the din/serial cable. That connection is audio. An RCA to mini-stereo adapter will work fine to plug in the XMD to your soundcard.
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    Alright, I'll ask this question. I made my cable about a month ago, and it powers up fine and what not, but I can't get it to work with Frodoplayer or frodoxm (cept the little program you put in your startup) and I finally got it to work with RR. Now, it plays the stations just fine, except It will never tell me the current song or artist or any of that info. How do I get that to work?
