Ok, so i finally got around to testing the directed hd tuner i have in my car that hasn't been working for a few days. Its a little tricky to get at because its behind my dash kit, but i managed to do some testing.
First, i left the radio in my car and took out mitch's cable and replaced it with the stock cable an lcd screen which comes with the unit. First try it worked perfect, so then i thought there might be a problem with mitch's cable.
I put mitch's cable back on and it didn't work, so time to test it out on another computer.
Brought it inside to another computer i have, hooked it up with the stock cable and lcd screen and works. So, then i tried mitchs cable and his hd radio pcr and it found it first try. So, looks like the unit and mitch's cable are working fine, i think its a com port conflict.
I still have so many com ports which windows still thinks are being used, my gps is probably stealing the comport or something. Does anyone know of a tool to clean up your com ports?
Its so weird though, one day its working fine, the next its not. i didn't even change any settings..
THanks for the help guys, hopefully i can get this thing working..
