    See here. It appears that it may be resolved as of the end of March. I hadn't checked back in a while, I may have to give this a go.
    Any day is a good day for golf.

    Speedy was traded for a 2004 350z - Install complete except for permanent screen installation.

    their including a pinout, soo, I'll see if i can just integrate this thing into my case somehow and adapt it through the internal audio headers. (wouldn't that be nice?)

    I'll do the bumbling, and i'll be the idiot.

    Good to hear. Once you can get clean power I'm sure you won't have any problems. You know the sound card does not need a Carnetix P5V type power, right? Some even utilize power from one of the USB ports and have reported success. Just a suggestion to save you some $.

    I still have the software side of this to setup which sounds like the more complicated piece to be honest.

    I'm going to be using the Carnetix P5V to power the SOHO card and an external USB.

    Crossing my fingers for no static noise after the install. It doesn't sound like too many people are interested (maybe they have adequate setups already) but I'll post pics etc as I get it set up and tested. I'll try to do a better job than the actual CarMac install...

    That's probably because it's a recent offering and that flux thread is about 2 years old now. Assuming it's the same chipset etc as the PCI card I don't see any difference. To be honest most of the space on the PCI card is wasted space anyway. Also as you can tell from that flux thread the thing is only plugged in the PCI slot for power, nothing else.

    Thanks I'm running the P1900 with a P5V.

    For those of you following, you can get at this site to determine which pins on USB are for power.

    So, it's been a while. I finished the install only to find out the thing gets a high pitched whine. I've isolated the problem (if that's the way you think about it) to plugging the power in...yikes!

    Does anyone have any ideas oh how to fix it? (I'll start a new thread and cross link if necessary)
