HD Radio + Latest Road Runner not working for me
Just recently purchased mitchjs HD Radio cable and the recommended HD Radio and I'm unable to get them working together with Road Runner. His standalone software HD Radio PCR works correctly, so this tells me there's nothing wrong hardware wise, just something wrong with my software setting or something to do with software.
My D945GCLF motherboard comes with an onboard COM1 port, so this makes things easy. COM3 is my USB GPS BU-353 receiver, and Xport software takes this and splits it into COM4 and COM10. COM4 is configured for iGuidance use, and COM10 is for Road Runner. I've verified that my RR.ini does not conflict with COM1, and to prove this further if I temporarily disconnect my HD Radio cable and use an OBDI cable on COM1 and OBDI software it works no problems inside Road Runner.
When I start Road Runner it immediately reports "HD Radio could not be found. Check comport settings", and if I click on the HD Radio icon same message appears. This error message puzzles me because there's no com port conflict.
For fun, I edited RR.ini so that gpsport points to a different number and no change as expected.
Sample of my RR.ini
I included the hddebug=true flag, but I'm not sure where to find the log or if it's included inside the debug.txt file.
