    HD Radio alternative, help? try it. sirius satellite adapter mod

    Hi, I'm new to the whole computer car thing & I have to say I love it. Things are missing however, 2 years ago, the HD radio tuner became discontinued without a reason. If you're making a headamp, you need a radio lol

    After looking around, they use an RS 232 interface with programming to work in Centrafuse or roadrunner. basic programming that other head amps use, so y not try something new

    whoever has a working computer and this device with an hd radio system wana try this out?
    If you wana try out with an HD radio, http://www.amazon.com/Dual-HDM90-Rad.../dp/B0044ZI98W
    you just need the 8 pin DIN cable also found on the sirius tuner & ur good 2 go.

    Could this be a possible workaround to the shortages on HD radios?

    Looks like the same connector of the HD zoom tuner. Maybe it would work?? MitchJS would probably know, maybe he can chime in.
