    my RR build (which i dont think youre using) has improvements for XM Radio, and HD Radio

    the HD Radio is kept ON, so transistion from mp3 to HD radio is instant

    look in the RR forum, for my thread

    Mitch> does your build turn the radio on/off in synch with RR running/not-running?

    I want to know because I run +12v to the power antenna (controlled by a relay on the radio whenver it is ON), and 0v when the raio is off. I just want to ensure that the antenna goes down when RR exits.
    thanks

    of course!

    works like it should... if RR is running, HD Radio is ON...
    u know, i wouldnt use the (HD Radio tuner box mod) to do any relay for my power antenna.... i would have the PC tell when the Antenna should be UP

    got a LPT port? could use that to control antenna and other things got 8 pins there

    The LPT thing would be ok too I guess. I dont see a problem with Hd Radio Mod, as when the radio is off you dont need the antenna, and for that savings of 1-2 seconds where the HD Radio is ON (from RR) yet the antenna is extending... I will still get static till the antenna is extended. so it defeats the purpose (for me) of that instant switch radio version you wrote.

    hi all,

    so i decided to tackle my interference issues again after having given up for a while.

    testing, playing, testing, playing, and finally a solution (though, one that has been done before).

    i finally went to the extreme and removed the power supply (m2-atx) from the case which i had sitting open-faced under my back bench seats. put the power supply in its own metal box (an aluminum project box found at the local parts shop), and BAM. no more interference.

    anyone trying to chase down noise... just know that i can add my name to the list of people who solved theirs by sealing up their s***. it really does work!

    just a note for all

    peace, love, and hdradio

    Now that I have everything basically set up the way I want and MOST problems ironed out, now to tackle the small problems.

    Reception. I have the Visteon HDZ300 plugged into my factory antenna and the reception is no where near as good as my factory or my Alpine HU was. Any ideas?

    Also, I was thinking of trying this http://www.crutchfield.com/S-eOVvK9o...px?i=12044UA60 . Will this help at all?

    With the head unit removed (?), if you have a powered antenna, make sure it is getting voltage. If the head unit powered it, it won't (blue wire). I thought I had broken my antenna. When I found that, the Visteon blew the factory HU out of the water on reception.
    My opinion is my own.
