Found the driver at this site in case anybody else needed it:
You just need to register.
Where can I get the driver for this USB-XM dodad?
Can you pm me? I'd like to put the driver up on some webspace that doesn't require a login.
Good Idea - PM Sent
Which setup will not require a Sound card with a line in jack for StreetDeck??????
In other words, will it work at all, just through usb or serial, without any analog inputs.
(I'm using SPDIF output from my sound card with a toslink cable going to a car)
No, most sound cards have issues routing from one audio source to a different sound card. You need to hook it into the line in on the same sound card that the output goes through... or you can tie the output of the XM unit directly into your cars speakers, but you'll have to figure out a way to mux it with the regular computer output assuming you also want to still hear that.Originally Posted by debugger
In this case the best solution is Plogue Bidule.
A while ago I was able to transform stereo .WAV into 6 channel (5.1) for AC3 or DTS further encoding. (That's to achive the surround sound on the fly)
I used old Ambisonics VST plugins. Virtual Audio Cable (VAC) и GraphEdit .
There are "Mic in and Line in" inputs which will be used for the Microphone and XM radio inputs, while S/PDIF will be the digital output to an amp.
Hopefully I will not have any problems with mixed inputs/outputs on the sound card. But everything is possible software wise (its just the matter of minimizing cpu resources), unless the hardware (like you said) will not allow it.
The only way to get XM running is to wait for TI to send a response back with the drivers?
I think I'll be able to do this:Originally Posted by 06TC_OWNER
XM(line out stereo)-->Carputer (line in Stereo)-->WAV(recorded)-->AC3(encoded on the fly)-->5.1 amp(SPDIF)-->speakers
I'd rather wait for natural surround recievers to come out
