Got my Visteon on Friday and installed it yesterday. Still waiting on my cable but it works good enough right now just using the provided faceplate.
This really is great. It's the first time I've felt I have a REAL radio solution since I installed my carpc.
its definitely nto blowing me away and its definitely notta need.. i just missed listening to the sports junkies in the mornings and don and mike in the afternoon. they play on the HD channel for 106.7 but being talk radio u cant really tell if its HD or not. I honestly havent listened to music on an hd channel yet lol.

not to mention a FLYERS game in HD sounds so good
the FM i dont listen too as much, but when i tune to a fm, and hear it switch to HD
its night and day... and in phily i think every FM has a sub channel
if people adopt, it will stick!
I'm getting "Hiss" noise here and there, Im hoping grounding the RCA will resolve this issue. Anyone having the same problem?
Ok, here's an idea I've had for streaming audio, which I count as AM/FM, XM, Sirius, or Internet Radio... One of you genius programmers would have to come through big time!

The XM and Sirius apps pretty much work this way, this app would have to enable the different streaming services and scrape for the currently playing song. I'm not sure if its possible, but it would :rock:
Just added the HD box and cable to my xmas list :high5:
What he said! That would be fantastic. We would need to build a list of streams tho.

YEs, the Directed HD radios have become scarce on Ebay, however the Visteon model has recently appeared for around $120 buy it now.
