    I don't know of any configuration that doesn't work. We have tested with XM PCR, XM Direct - TimeTrax, XM Direct - hacked serial cable, XM Direct - USB thing on the store.

    Any recommendation as to which works best GoC? I haven't fully tested my XMDirect+TimeTrax setup, but I have heard murmors of discontent re: coming out of suspend (because it's USB based).

    Hey GOC,

    I just recieved the usb thing from the store - does the polarity of the power matter? Also, the Streetdeck XM setup has choices of com1 (serial) or com5 (proliphic usb to serial port). Do I use the comm 5 setup?

    Thanks again

    Just click the detect button, it should find it for you. The prolific is probably your GPS and Comm 5 is probably the XM though.
