OK I'm at my witts end here. Two weeks ago i ordered a XM Direct box along with a XM Direct to USB converter box and a 12v converter thing from mp3car.com. They told me on the phone it would come with all the software and drivers needed for it to work. Of course when it arrived this was not the case. After a few phone calls I have managed to get a link put on there site for the driver and now I have the XM Direct to USB box working in windows. Next issue is controlling it. mp3car first suggested there streetdeck software but they will only let me use the demo version which does not allow XM use so then they suggested frodo's xm player and I downloaded and installed that and it picks up no signal, I have since attempted to download pretty much any player i can find including Mobile Impact, imobile, xm tracker, hybrid exem launcher, and every one of them gives me nothing...every one of the programs open and act like they are working but never change the channel or do anything with the XM connection. I have the line out of the XM Direct box going directly into the amp just to ensure i'm not having any line in issues putting it back into the pc and no sound whatsoever is coming out of it. I'm sure others out there have gotten this setup and gotten it to work... if so please tell me what software package you are using to control it.Yes I do have power to the device and the green light on it is blinking. Everytime i call MP3car they just sound more desperate and rattle off some other program to try that doesn't work.. I'm about to just send this stuff back.
