    Is this all I need to use XM in MI?

    http://store.mp3car.com/XM_Package_X..._p/sat-008.htm

    I find it kinda confusing, is this all i'd need?

    the receiver, and then the usb adapter?

    but i need to plug into a USB port and a line-in correct?

    there was a thread on it a while ago, I can't seem to find it. I just need to know what I need to purchase. Thank you.

    Assuming you already own a PC, yes, this is what you need. The adaptor plugs into the USB port and the XM box plugs into the adaptor. You will need to supply 12 volts to the adaptor. I jumped mine off of the PSU.

    You then plug the line outs from the XM box to the line in on your PC. I use Streetdeck to listen to XM. I am not sure if RR will work with the adaptor, I haven't tried it.

    It is possible to skip the adaptor altogether and just wire up a serial cable to plug into the XM box. Search on terms "FAQ, XM" to find out how.
