    Question about the opus dc/dc converter...

    I know this is a newb question but, before i go buying one of these things i want to know how does it hook up to your car? Does it plug in to where the head unit plugs into (the power cable) I tried looking everywhere and couldn't find any info on this. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Normally what one would do is run seperate wires directly from the battery to the PSU.

    Directly from the battery? I would have never thought that. How would it shut off if its directly hooked to the battery? I guess i would have to do it manualy.

    You all have a remote line that you use for turning it off and on. You hook it up to your head units amp turnon or ignition. It will turn on the computer when it gets 12v on the remote line, and then tell the computer to shutdown/standby when the 12v is remoted. It also can be timed from 20min to and hour.

    Does the ATX 150 DC-DC converter work with a ITX/Mini-ITX board?

    OOOoohhh, i think i know what your talking about. You mean that blue "power antenna" wire thing. I didn't know that could hook up to the opus. It all makes sence now. Thanks!!! You don't know how much that means to me.

    No no no no not the power antenna wire
    the remote turn-on wire
    The power antenna makes your antenna go up and down if you have a power antenna

    Ain't that what a power antenna wire is, a remote turn-on wire for the antenna? Those were always the same thing back when I was building car stereos. It's just +12v out when the radio is turned on. Ain't it???

    Mmm now that I think about it it would keep the 12v cause it doesnt have the antenna motor to tell it to shut off...
