sonicxtacy02, tell me more about you're car?
are we talking about the 1995 honda?
thats a mast antenna right? (not glass)
is that a power antenna in the trunk?
that car is OLD, i would replace the antenna, the whole thing, then
DO NOT EXTEND the antenna wire, move the the tuner!
ONLY USE OEM antenna, dont use anything from metra
i have a 2002 mitsu, and i replaced my antenna, and its was like night and day
over time the antenna ground, and the mast system becomes worn, and doesnt make good connections...
also... some amplifers produce RFI which kills recpetion
(BLADE is a good example)
oh a good test of an antenna.... is AM with engine running... is it clean and free of noise...

and AM 621, 693, 774, 855, 927, 1026, 1116 Khz. Is it possible to make a 9kHz tuning option for AM in Aus/other countries?
Do you ship your cables to Aus? Is there a USB version planned? - this would fix the DTR signal going high/low during POST, and turning the radio on.
How are you guys bench testing your HD radio to configure for the carPC?
I have a 15amp 13.8V power source that I use to bench test my carPC. Can I just hook it up to that?
That should be fine, when the car is running it puts out 14.4 volts so the tuner has to have some built in regulator.
Im still trying to figure out how to have roadrunner save a list with this tuner, and also to return to HD menu and save the station it was on. Right now any time I leave the HD menu and come back it is at 87.5 and I have to retune it.
iceman, no plans for USB...
i dont think this tuner will last anyway...
this is a new technolgy, if this is a 2nd generation tuner
i expect new tuners next year...
i have no idea whats coming, and/or i will interface it to pc
i dont know how to make it do 9khz
remember i reverse engineered this (aka hack)
and if the display dont have the option... i never saw the command
mitch> yep. i understand.
Can I buy your cable and get you to ship it to Aus?
I am not sure how to fix it, but am pretty sure it is in RR"s code, and nothing to do with the plugin, DLL ect.

It is especially annoying when I hear a song on the radio, and switch to the skin to see the title and such, and it tunes to another station!
Yes its for my 95 accord and unfortunately it is in the glass This particular year of the car never came with an external mast. My tuner has been in two different locations.. the trunk.. and behind the monitor up front in my car. The difference is barely noticable. Is there anything i can place my tuner in that would reduce the amount of RFI affecting it? I did notice that when i had it in the trunk next to a boss amp i have the reception sucked unless i put my rear seats down. In its current location behind the monitor it works better but its certainly nowhere near as strong as the stock radio in my van is.

sonicxtacy02, i would conside getting a TRUNK mounted Power Antenna installed
I bet you could get a honda one...
ah i do remember accords with the glass antenna, is it passive or is there an amplifer?
i know they had trunk mounted antennas around that year
might only be for sedans...but check anyway...
I did a quick check in alldata, shows a power antenna... for 1995 coupe
and i bet the mount is there, just need the hole in the body
