    the only thing that is the same in my carpc since 2005 is the DSATX.. it works like day one..
    I also use the S19 acroname USB.. bought it long time ago, i have it connected to the carpc all the time it works very nice, better than the serial port one..
    I can't help you regarding the S27 though..

    When cranking the engine my DSATX will often turn AUX off which restarts my amps etc.
    Ive checked the settings if there is a way to increase time until AUX will be turned off, but I cant really tell, since there are quite a few that sound like they could do what I want.
    VOLTSHYST, VOLTSTHYST or VOLTSTHYST1 for example.
    Does anyone know which setting I need to change?

    Hi, did you succeed to find out how to increase the time AUX is turned off?
    Thanks

    No. However, I found out that actually my whole Car PC restarted (going into sleep and out again) when that happened. Its just so fast, that I thought its just the amps. And I found out that this problem is caused by my batteries, which cant hold voltage anymore, since they were completely dead for a few days once. So I need to get new ones.

    Aah OK, glad that you found the root cause, hope you'll remedy that situation and see if it still repeats ...
    Thanks

    Please let us know, when you will replace your battery, if you still have this problem with amp thump in your speakers.
    Thanks

    I will, but I dont know when. They are very expensive (almost $400 in total, plus I need an intelligent separator relay because I dont want them to kill each other again). Maybe next month, maybe next year, because its a seasonal car. Depends on how warm September gets. If its warm and thus the car will be used a lot, it might be worth buying them this year. Just doesnt make sense to buy new expensive batteries just to let them sit for 5 months.

    But if you have that problem too, you should check how much voltage your battery holds how long after a longer drive.
    If the voltage drops quickly when you have the PC and amps running, its most likely your battery.
    My batteries are so bad that my battery charger can barely keep up with them discharging each other. Before that the charger would sit there for hours doing nothing, while now its charging all the time and even after a full load the voltage is not high enough to keep the DSATX supplied with the needed voltage.

    Hi, thanks very much for the answers , no I don't have this problem too, I just wanted to be sure there is nothing wrong with the DSATX PSU, which for me is a very nice piece of equipment.

    Concerning my experience with an almost fully depleted battery, what happened to me when I cranked the engine was my dashboard stopped for a few milliseconds and it thrown an airbag error, and this was due to battery not having enough juice to sustain cranking the engine.

    The same with my car too, I'm using it very rare, just occasionally to test new engine settings, new parts, etc, that's why from time to time I need to recharge the battery in my house.
    Thanks

    You should get a trickle charger/battery maintainer they usually only output 1.5amps but have circuitry to prevent overcharging. I have one on my motorhome as it sits most of the time in the driveway. This is the one I have http://batterytender.com/products/au...-at-1-25a.html You could get away with the junior http://batterytender.com/products/au...-at-0-75a.html They are pretty cheap just make sure to get a good brand name one.

    Thanks SNO , This is a quite good solution , I used to use my charger when the battery was too low.
