XM direct problem yes i searched forums
Okay I have made the cable i check all the wires 6,7 are 12v and 8 ground
8 pin mini-diin to db9
pin 1 = pin 3 Data Receive
pin 2 = pin 2 Data Transmit
pin 3 = pin 5 Ground
pin 6 = 12v
pin 7 = 12v
pin 8 = gnd
and i have checked the port the serial cable is one port 1 on my laptop. I checked i bios it is turned on,
I tried this app FSRXPatchTest1Setup.exe this is no way the debug program,
I looked in frodo suite then patch, uninstall.exe is only in there and a uni......dat file. How is this supposed to be a debug program i cant get it to run,
it only installs in C:\Program Files\FrodoSuite\Patch/unins000.dat and file
The computer notices nothing when i plugin the serial cable to xm direct, This is the app that sends the magic bytes to turn on the xm direct unit, I have read about all threads on this, and still no luck, I have tried to short pin2 and 3 on the serial cable no go. My xm unit when i first turned it on got a little warm, no smoke or anything so i know its not fried. I tried it again but it did not get warm after i dissconnected and reconnected it.
I hear people say the the debug app sends out the magic bytes but i have no way to try that, i install the app and nothing was there, I hear people say i tried all this and nothing but then they buy timetrax and bamm it works so wtf is up with these things. Does timetrax send a signal out to these things to to get them to work.
