    2 channel audio

    Thanks mitch for you quick replies and trying to help me.. im gonna be ordering another cable, got my second unit and im going to hook it up to my home stereo i listen to while listing crap on ebay..

    I think i figured out the problem after an hour or two of searching. It is a winamp problem, well either that or sound card related. If you have a good sound card (sound blaster) you can set the software up to relay sound to all channels. Unfortunetely I was being cheap and bought a diamond sound card and the software doesnt let you output 2 channel stereo to 4 channel.

    There is a plugin that was written by a board member years ago for winamp for just this problem, i havent fully gotten it working yet, but I do hear sound coming from all speakers, but its distorted. Im actually going down to do some more adjustments in the car here in a few minutes.. if i cant get it working ill be buying a REAL sound card tonight.

    ill keep anyone who cares updated.. i cant be the only one having this problem.

    Hadalgo, what sound card do u have anyway?

    no need to spend $100 too

    im not sure what u need, but for music a SB Live 5.1 would do fine
    $10 - $15 on ebay

    sound card

    I have a diamond sound card.. still having issues with it.. cant get it to work correctly, even the line-in plugin isnt working.. sigh..

    im going to post out in the hardware forum and see if I cant get more answers.. theres no way im the only one having a problem.

    do you know if i input the sound to the cd rom sound hookup on the motherboard if that will force the sound card to process the sound into 2 channel stereo instead of just looping it through the sound card directly to the front speaker output??

    I have been pretty guilty about reading tons of posts all over this forum, working on my pc, and not posting much. This definitely deserves a post because I am quite excited about this!

    I was almost about to buy a cheap little Radio Shark because I am missing my radio every now and then.. so glad I saw this! I had no idea you could get the tuner for so cheap.

    Just ordered the cable and keeping my eye on a few auctions.

    Thanks for your work.. I will definitely post once I have my setup up and running.

    another good use for this product.. if you ever are without your car pc (like me... right now... waiting for a warranty repair on a hard drive) you just need to hook up the face to the tuner box and you have SOMETHING to listen to in the car

    Which brings me to why I think these things are selling so cheap on ebay, in cold weather (<35F) the plug-in face to my HDradio lags and blurrs when it scrolls. I wonder if they found out and dumped them. If that were so, discounting their original loss, it would be pretty much a win-win-win for visteon, the middleman, and us. Maybe it's just me though.
