    Hey Pyros,

    Maybe you can help me. I've got XM working great in RR. But every time I boot up (every time I start my car) - I have to go to the system volume control panel and:
    choose recording properties,
    unselect 'line-in',
    then reselect 'line-in' to hear XM.

    Do you know why it might be doing this? Or what I could do to be able to just boot and hear XM?

    Thanks a ton.

    I have noticed the mouse DIN connector I used fits loosely... What is the adapter mentioned above, and where do I get this?

    Also to note...

    I am wondering why there are 2 +12v inputs to the XMD1000. After making the mistake of assuming both were connected on the radios circuit board, I took the circuit board out and they are connected to a missing connector labeled "Signal". My mouse connector I used was missing one of the pins (forgot if it was 6 or 7), so I soldered the 2 +12v circuits together at the "Signal" connector. After that I was up and running.

    I am thinking one is on constant, and the other would be on at ignition on/ Power on.

    If anyone knows the nitty gritty on the 2 +12 volt circuits, please enlighten.

    I'd be willing to bet money that that's it.

    I did this as well, and it works, the unit powers up, but i get almost no audio. if i hook it up to my house stereo, and crank it all the way up i can barely hear it, and its scratchy. do i need to just find an 8-pin mini-din and put power to it that way?

    please help!

    How did you wire up the power? Which pins on DIN connector? What source of +12V are you using? If you have a digital Volt meter check to make sure the 2 pins are getting a solid +12Volts.

    I need to find the correct connector to fit into this radio! If you find it let me know.

    I didnt use the pins on the DIN connector. I used the solder points on the board. to the right of the RCA's. should i move to the pins on the DIN connection?

    XM Doubt

    Does anyone know the maximum power that an XMD1000 can receive? I mean, if I use an antenna different from the ones for car?
    I need to use a cable of 7 ft and Im intending to use an antenna which has about 25dB of gain.
    Could someone help me? What type of cable shall I use? Im intending to have that on my Clarion MAX675VDII and I need an XMD1000 receiver and also an XMDCLA100 Smart Digital Adapter.

    Thanks for all.
