    Sirius ?

    I know they sell the interface for the Alpine Sirius interface here...will that work on the Pioneer Sirius unit as well?

    No sorry it only works with the Alpine unit it was designed for.

    I have to think it would. I think all the Sirius connect units are exactly the same except the connect board that you are replaceing was different. Now it might not fit into the metal casing nice, but I thought it would work.

    AFAIK, the 'brain' of the sirius direct connects is the same, with the same connector for each one, only the bottom half is different, the manufacturer specific part.

    Well I found a defective Pioneer Sirius unit at work and decided to pull it apart...looks like they all use the same board on the tuner. Gonna try it with the Pioneer piece since I can just use one at work..

    The manufacturer mentions on his website that it should theoretically work with any unit. The reason he suggests the Alpine is because that is what he's tested with, and the physical interface of the board was designed for the Alpine case. The only problem you should have is possibly drilling some holes to make the plugs fit.

    yes

    its all in the metal case

    ANY of the sirius connects will electrically work

    except the SC-fm1 (which could be made to work)

    hey mitch, ive been using your sir-alp1 > serial board for a while now, working good... but i do have one problem; i seem to be getting a lot of unwanted noise from it. Is this due to the fact that i am not using the optical out, or in other words, would using the optical out cancel out the noise i am hearing? if the answer is yes, any cheap solutions to adding an optical in to my creative live! usb soundcard?
