    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am real interested in using this setup as the Boomzbox is too expensive.

    All I need is the DirectedHD unit, Mitchs cable, serial-to-usb cable (any recommendations?) and what about an antenna?

    Thanks

    LOL, that is a silly question. Because the Directed HD is meant for the car, it has a port to plug in you existing antenna. I am not sure 100% on the Directed, but the Vistean I have has two ports. One for antenna in, and another for out to connect the head unit if you use one. I am pretty sure the Directed is the same setup. If you are worried about not reaching, the package should come with a antenna extension cable.

    I see, well I am not sure where my existing antenna would be, guess I'll have to figure that out. But I will be attaching to my Carpc so at least I will be needing the serial-to-usb and mitch's cable.

    Thanks

    Also, you may want to be careful with what type of USB to Serial adapter you buy. It has to be a certain one to work with Mitch's HD Cable and Mitch's XM Cable. Mitch can you tell us what he is looking for as far as USB to Serial adapters?
