MPEGBOX - Plexiglass Computer
Just wanted to give you an update.
The firmware reflash did resolve the temperature problem. And the diagnostic readout is showing "sane" values now.
I'm experiencing some other weirdness now though, which I'm still troubleshooting to make sure it's not my install.
I'll be sure to post back here when/if I need some help.
Thank you very much for being so helpful and responsive so far.
I hate to say it but it looks like I'm having the exact same (well, very similiar) problems. I just spoke at length about it over DSATX Brainstem Guidelines. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the brain stem. I'll do some probing tomorrow morning.
Car PC Progress:
Once I removed the brainstem from the equation completely, things seemed to start behaving.
Yep, sounds exactly like the problems I'm having, take the brainstem out, and (mostly) everything starts working. Right now my only lingering (non-brainstem) problem is that I can't dumb boot the DSATX anymore. Oh well, I've not a switch to ACC for that.
I'd just like to be able the get the brainstem working long enough to adjust a few hard coded settings, like the instant aux off. Hoping for the update, will see what that does to the system.
Car PC Progress:
I could then use the brainstem after the computer had powered up, and wasn't depending upon the DSATX to power the computer. The only setting I set was the EARLYAUXOFF, and everything else seemed to work okay for me.
i seem to havign the same prob but i never hooked up a serial cable to the PSU ever has always been jstu the power wires and thats it. and now all esudden after months and months of it workgni with no prob, it wont turn on it jsut blinks 4 times. and this coudl be even when the inside of tha tcar has been in the ac for like an hour and i try unpluging the power and back in again to reset the DSATX and still goes back to 4 blinks.
