    yea i'd say your next step is to check your mixer to make sure that line-in is unmuted when radio is playing. RR tries to handle this itself but i've noticed in my setup that the line-in gets muted if i tell rr to unmute the line-in. If i tell rr to unmute the cd player line it works as it should. This would perfectly explain why you hear music for a split second because thats how long it takes rr to mute your line-in.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, but as mentioned in the above post, the audio is just a small PART of the problem. As it stands, RR is not communicating with the tuner in any way whatsoever (EA: No freq displayed, No indicators, No RDS, Buttons do nothing at all ect). I am using the skin that was created for LSX to test with, as many have downloaded that skin, and it seems to work well.

    I do know the port is set correctly for use with RR, as the relay in the radio clicks on when I start RR, and click off again when I exit RR. This computer currently only has COM 1 on it, so its a no brainer as far as that goes

    did you verify you only have ONE HDRadioComm file in your computer (regardless of where the file is at) and that it is the one that comes with RR and that it was registered exactly where it is right now? I'm thinking the DLL that comes with the test application may be conflicting with the one RR comes with (older).

    It is odd for the radio to click on/off but not do anything else.

    i would say its odd too.. but outta the handful of people who have bought into the HD radio stuff .. 3 including myself had this same problem. John would you happen to have a usb/serial adapter you can try? It was the only solution that ended up working for me.

    I never installed a test application. The DLL is in the HDRadio Folder, and has never been anywhere else on the machine. (well, other than to unpack the RR archive and move everything over that is ) It has also been registered in this location. I also did a search on drive C: for the DLL, and in the HDRadio folder is the only copy of it.

    This is where it stands now, and what I have done:

    - Dll is in only one location and has only been registered in that location (tried the unregister, re-register-run me first many times)
    - Uninstalled doNt net 2.0 and reinstalled
    - Skin is verified to work with the tuner
    - All settings are in the rr.ini, and correct com port has been selected
    - Radio works fine with Mitch's stand alone player
    - No information is being received or sent to the radio through RR (No labels are updating, buttons do nothing ect)
    - Phoned the local prayer line and put in a request

    I do not have a USB ->Serial adapter off hand, but I do need to get one anyways, as my temperature board for the CarPC is taking up the serial port, so one of em has to move to USB I will try to pick one up here in the next couple of days and see if that does anything.

    if my player works, you got good tuner, and good comport

    make sure u are using the latest .dll in RR
    the 1st release will not work with current cables!!!!


    here is my .ini
    Code:
    [Radio]
    radiomode=8
    hdradioport=2
    here is the NEWEST .DLL
    unzip into the hdRadio dir, prob should register it (runme1st.cmd)

    OK, I am sorry for bringing up an old thread, but this problem never really seemed to be solved (at least that was confirmed by John).

    I have a VIA mainboard CarPC that I am trying to add a Visteon HDZ300 to. The rest of RoadRunner and DFX3 is working fine. I cannot get the HD unit working.

    I have tried using a USB based serial port (FTDI-based) as well as the real serial port on the motherboard. I have tried disabling the FIFO (via Device Manager). No differences at all.

    I have also used Mitch's HD PCR app (that's included with the cable). No difference.

    The symptom I keep encountering (and can't seemed to change) is that the software goes to turn the HDZ on, it clicks twice and then nothing. When running the HD PCR, it creates a debug log file. It just says no hardware was found.

    Does anyone have ANY sorts of ideas???!?!?? I am desperate here.

    Forgot to mention...if I unplug just Mitch's cable and put the headunit that came with the HDZ, it works fine. Just not using the computer to control the HD. Also, I have tried two different HDZ300's and got the exact same results.

    That's why I listed it...I know it's significant. But I know the serial port is good and it;s the same USB-Serial adapter I was using on the test setup that was working.

    Based on the test setup, I know the cable is good, the HD unit is good, the USB serial adapter is good. And in the car, I know everything is good (by using the headunit that came with the HD radio). It is something to do with the serial port/software on the host.

    I also compared the device manager settings for the serial ports on the test pc and the car pc...they are the same.

    I was never pointing a finger at any particular component here. I am really lost.
