    I wont be ready in the next two weeks - audio shop delays.

    How about a December meet?
    No point rushing people to meet in the next 2 weeks if no-one seems keen. In December my car will be ready and Jarrod can also attend.

    I vote for early December

    Sounds good to me, but don't let me hold everyone back if you are all keen for Nov when I'm away. We can always have a meet in Nov. and Dec.

    I've been working hard to get my skin and software to a more finished state, but damn phidget is dead so wont have steering wheel controls interfaced without some sort of miracle

    Yeah I agree. I've been flat out with work and stuff I haven't had time. I just had my car in the panel shop and my new touch panel just arrived and needs to be installed and tested with some frontend software before I'm happy to demo it. I vote we make it say Saturday, December 9th. I find people are more willing to turn up on a saturday than a sunday. So who agrees?

    I still need to get hold of a 4 pin male to female CDROM audio style cable for the touch screen which Is the last bit of the ever fun puzzle of installing an aftermarket touch panel into a cheap screen. Tip: Buy the screen with touch panel already built in.

    Just got my Xenarc 840TSV.. was ready to install it and then through testing I find out that "autoswitch" does not work.

    Spoke to Xenarc techs....and apparently this is the ONLY xenarc model that does NOT do "autoswitch" for reverse signal type usage.

    WTF!!

    Back it goes.. asking them for a custom version at the moment. more delays...

    Sounds like everyone's having issues. I still don't have a power cable for my touch screen. It's been installed but no cables running to the USB on the pc so It's still work in progess so I doubt very much by early december i'll have it going.. Hrm..

    December agreement here, or perhaps Jan.. December for most gets heavily booked with all those christmasy things.

    (kinda slacked off on my setup.. need to rebuild pc/and or tablet, not happy with the mounting / glare, interface..), any of you guys tried Freeway yet as an FE ?
