Just got my cable a couple of days ago, but I went back to the site to get the drivers and I noticed the item wasn't on there anymore. Is he updating the page? Will it be back on there in a couple of days? not a big deal because I won't be able to finish my system until the monitor I am going to use is finished, but I was just wondering what was up.
I think its just normal for Visteon to trigger on/off when the pc resumes hibernation or turns on. I guess the driver is just sending power and enabling the radio on/off at startup.
Nah, you can hear it clicking on and off several times. Mitch thinks it's windows looking for a modem or somethingo n the serial port.

does that SkipEnumerations thing work, dont know
YES... disabling the serialenum, will keep windows from looking for devices on that comport... and the radio wont click on and off...
now i use a ftdi based usb->rs232, so if you do too... just got to the windows devicemanager, and under the ports, find the comport in question, go to port settings...advance and uncheck the "serial enumerator" check box
for onboard serial ports my guess it add the dword string
as described in this article
basicly, most onboard com ports are plug and play, so it will be in
to find out which device look at
it will list the devices that the serenum service is testing
for instance mine ACPI\PNP0501\1
so then back to the other key
then do a SkipEnumerations dword key in the "Device Parameters"
set it to -1 (dec) or 0xffffffff
should do it... i will test mine...
the ftdi usb sure makes it easy :)
I have an FTDI chip based converter as well and will give it a spin and see if it works.
happy to report that it works perfectly...
no more click click, not that it was a big deal anyway...
SkipEnumerations added to a onboard comport
if you're using usb->rs232 like me (ftdi)
and unchecking "serial enumerator" in the control panel port settings advanced
thanks, to the person who discovered that article...
i learnededed something :)
