if signal is weak, it will drift back to analog, its instant
i notice NO delay, just goes back to crappy AM/FM
to me with out HD i would NEVER listen to radio... just like i amost never listen to XM
it just dont sound that good, when i got all my MP3s with me :)
i use "RADIO" for sports...
but thats just me...
oh, the NEWS does sound good in HD :)
OK, the switch between digital and analog is instant, but once it switches, do you notice that the analog audio is either farther along or behind by a couple seconds compared to the digital audio stream?
I just wanted to mention that I bought the radio a while back from Cartoys and had no issues what so ever. This could be because I ordered over the phone. I recieved free shipping also. They even called to follow up the next week. Maybe I just got lucky. Anyway, I also want to thank Mitch for providing this great cable for what I thought was a reasonable price. Kudos.
P.S. I have not needed to ground my RCA's yet.
When switching between analog and hd, the audio is still sync'd. You'll notice the sound quality go up or down. It switches to hd after maybe a second of getting and keeping a hd signal lock. That delay should prevent you from getting TOO annoyed by the hd/analog switching. Unfortunately there's no option to disable hd signal searching, but you shouldn't be hearing 30 signal changes every minute.

here's a question for those who already own the visteon:
I don't have HD stations anywhere near where I live, but notice that the unit does regular analog am/fm. Would this work acceptably for a regular radio tuner for the carputer?
Ended up getting a VISTEON HDZ300 shipped to my house for a smidge under 200 bucks canadian.
I can't wait to have radio that actually work (........radioshark........grumble........crap.... ...mumble.........) in the car again.
Kinda miss morning talk radio and local news/weather........
Not to mention the drive in movie theater down the road that uses fm broadcasts.
Mitch, i am dissappointed with you, you havent figured out a toslink output yet?
Got me my Directed HD radio last week, but still in the process of installing it.
Having a bit of a problem w/ space, so I pretty much am gutting the front to find space to cram that box in and run audio and power.
Man, I can't wait to power it up and have decent radio again...
i got my radio today. Tried to download the free software but your site says the download is restricted. Is there an alternate link?
I believe it's included in the latest release of RR..............
