    also keep in mind that it will have trouble bringing up channel list if it doesnt have a good sat signal level, it wont work if you just have ground repeater signal. I have even had to activate some to get the channels to come up

    well wouldnt the app at least recognize the XM direct unit? none of them are even finding it... also wasnt there an app that sent the magic bytes?

    you just tried it


    the programs are not going to recognize it persay, they are just going to bring back the channel list if they can

    if the XMD is getting good signal and is activated the test program will bring back a channel list

    the other thing you might try is make sure that in the device manager that windows didnt find the XMD as a serial mouse

    I ordered a cable a few weeks ago, and ran into the shorting problem that other people are seeing. When I checked the cable, it seems like it was wired up in a "mirror image" compared to the diagram on the first page.

    Are the pins on the DIN numbered as if you are looking at the front of the plug, or from behind?

    Thanks
