    That's too simple to be called a hack. Very slick tho.

    Then get some ppl together and buy us a receiver and I'll have something to test against.

    XM Direct unit available

    Hey, Phat_Bastard : email me your shipping address and I'll send/give you my XM direct unit and cables.

    I'm going to be using a AVIC-D1 as my front end, and just using media-engine to play mp3's via the aux video/audio input; so I wont need my xm unit any more~ I figure it will help out all the other guys.

    Like I said previously, it works (XM) for me with the usb/serial bridge I'm using, but you'll be able to test with it and the serial cable hack.

    I'll leave it registered with XM for about 2 months to give you time to test with it.

    All xmDirect users are now instructed to kneel before isaakian and pay him homage for donating his setup (including antenna and toslink mod) to us. You're way too kind dude.
