    OK, great.
    How about for sound out from the Dice?

    Also, is it true that a 1K ohm will work, or should we stick with the 10K ohm?

    Thanx again,
    Ron

    Sorry abt that here is the audio pinout. I personally experienced a few problems with the 1K, but anything above 5K should work. When I get my car tomorrow, I will measure out the actual voltage on the IBUS line and calculate the exact resistance required, until then I can vouch for anything above 5K

    Nice.. im in central Jersey and i pick up about 10 HD channels.. however i am not in HD 100% of the time.. it does fade in and out as obstacles block reception .. wooded areas bridge underpasses etc.. however the Dice unit seemlessley switched back and forth with no interruption of music.

    Alright guys, I should have a beta out for the guys who contributed tomorrow evening once I receive the unit and test a few things out. Everyone on the list please PM me your e-mail addresses and I will mail out the beta software. At the moment it does require .NET v2.0 to be installed on the system but I will be rewriting it as a pure C++ application once we get most of the bugs ironed out, it was easier to write it in VC++ .NET while testing. I will include a readme which will explain how to use the software.

    Mine is up and running here on the bench.
    I am picking up 6 HD stations (x2 feeds each) with the antenna stuck out of the window. I am in central NC, so to say the least I am impressed.

    I hope to install in the car tomorrow.

    Thanx for the hard work so far, guys!

    I read most of this thread but am still confused(could be because it's 3am) as to what one needs to have this running once it's released..

    You need a dice unit plus what else? And is it hooked up via usb?
    how much is everything going to cost?

    thanks

    so the end manifestation of this will be a proven guide for a DIY project/mod, and not an actual complete unit, correct?
