    Thanks for the replies!

    After looking further at the directed unit, I think I may actually get the boomzbox. I would rather use a usb input than a line in on my carpc. I have limited audio inputs.

    Thanks for the help though.

    I ordered the cable earlier this week, I was able to score a DMHD1000 on ebay for ... wait for it.... $35!! $44 all in shipped to Canada, I've been looking for a better solution than the ADS units. Looking forward to hooking everything up once it gets here.

    Just a different topic, but is there anyone using a power antenna with HDRadio? If so what signal the antenna to go up or down? right now I'm using the acc wire to signal my antenna but it will be nice to have a signal from the Directed HDRadio to do the signal only when the radio is used.

    well most cars today dont have them
    if one does, i would use a IO line from the carpc, like from a usb relay
    and only send antenna up, when im using the radio
    -Thanks

    well... with little to no real information...
    ie what do you plan to use for control? RideRunner? Centrafuse?
    then you will need a some sort of relay
    there is also... a serial port relay control too
    just depends on what you want to do
    there isnt anything out of the box to do what u want, but its not hard
    -Thanks

    HMMMMMMM. Sounds easy. Maybe hack into the pin on the serial port that sends the signal for the HD Radio to turn on. The use a device like a PAC TR-4. I use this with my amps. Basically it monitors pin 5 on my serial port and when AMP_CTRL turns on, it activates pin 5, then that activates the PAC TR-4, then you connect that to the antenna. Thing is, I dont know about power antennas or how they work. I simple low power sencing relay may also work in place of the PAC TR-4.

    got a spare comport? if not gonna new a USB Relay
    i just wrote a plugin for someone else to do this for a specific USB relay
    i havent published the plugin(yet), but i wasnt 100% happy with the chosen usb relay
    its not up to MY standards... over the next few days, ill be working on something
    but the actuall plugin code to raise power antenna only when radio on is done!

    on the spare comport, the pac tr-4 would work, if we modified my plugin to work it
    -Thanks

    It will be nice if centrafuse can turn off the hd radio. I know your software turn off and on the hdradio.
    Can that be intergrated into centrafuse?
