    Could you PM me the info, perhaps?

    Also, in regards to my cheap Directed box, one caveat, it didn't come with ANY cables, just the box. The power plug looks a lot like a P4 connector, anyone know for sure if one will plug in? I can just pirate one off an old power supply. I've found the pinouts somewhere online for which ones are power and which are ground.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kris

    well.. i would connect it to a line in, not a mic in... mic ins are usually MONO
    if you dont have a line in, thats where my new product comes into play
    its just a simple usb audio device, im not 100% happy with it, but thats Texas Instruments fault
    but it would work fine for ya
    better in vista/win7, then in xp... in some aspects


    now that connector...
    its a mini-fit jr
    looking at it with wires exiting rear. clip on bottom

    34

    1 = 12v switched
    2 = empty
    3 = 12v constant
    4 = GND

    I have plenty of these connectors, i could make u up one

    1 & 3 can be tied together, and connected to 12v constant or 12v pc power(yellow on hd connect)
    since power is also trigged via rs232 connection

    pm me
    -Thanks

    gogo mitch, thanks for fixing my diagram, i knew i had something backwards, but it's hidden away behind soldered wire and digging it up usually results in cuts on my hand because my car doesnt like me >.>

    i hope, i got it right

    i think it so... im used to clip up... but offically molex says clip down

    clip up, wires exiting

    G C
    * A

    G = gnd
    C = constant
    * = open
    A = Accessory
    -Thanks

    I have Centrafuse 3 and it says that this hardware is supported, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it to work. Has anyone tested it out? Any tips? Also from the looks of it you can still get standard channels through this as well correct? (non-hd standard am/fm radio)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Note: I have the VISTEON HDZ300 installed VISTEON HDZ300 and a http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product running from it to the cable. Hoping the extension cable will work. Haven't messed with serial cables much so not to sure on how to test it either. I tried plugging the extension into the controller that comes with the VISTEON to just test the cable and unit, but nothing when I hit the power. This should work shouldn't it? Or is the cable missing some pins or are any wires flipped?

    Are you out of cables again? I'm getting "Product not found!" on your website.

    So I got it working with the HD PCR application and the interface that comes with the HD radio, now I just need to figure out how to get it to work in Centrafuse 3.0.

    Has anyone got it working in Centrafuse and if so what are your settings.

    I am guessing the key setting is Device under settings > Advanced > am/fm Radio.

    So what device would I choose, I didn't seem to see one that made sense.
