HD Radio Cables READY!
I got the HD Radio cables ready!!!!
the new code is in Roadrunner already
prob need someone to make a really nice radio skin screen for it
there is electronics inside this cable...
so its not just a simple 3 wires :)
for use with the VISTEON HDZ300 or DIRECTED DMHD1000(limited supply)
If you dont know yet, HD Radio sound quality BLOWS Sat Radio away!
im selling the cables for $24 free shipping in USA
I want to thank Guino for his FAST support of this!
Its RS232 for many reasons, if you need USB use a USB-Rs232 deally
of course use one that is reliable and supports suspend!
(I ONLY use FTDI based, their drivers seem the best)
here is a handy skin command (with guino's help...)
a single button to toggle though the HD Sub Channels
need someone to make a nice HD Radio specific skin
maybe take the BMV2 as a base and make a new Radio_Player.skin and jpgs
just to show how to use HD Radio
any review yet for the hd radio with this cable in a car environment?
i'm SO ready to purchase this and the Directed unit but i dont see anywhere where there's actual instructions on how to setup/use the device. Obviously connecting the serial port to the computer and the tuner allows you to control the unit from the computer. Does that make the "face" of the unit unneccessary? Does the tuner hook up to the existing car antenna or is that another purchase that needs to be made similar to sat radio? If there's a link with more info i'd sure love to see it.
Really. I've been trying to find more info as to how it's setup with little luck. Right now, I use an aftermarket stereo for sound thru an aux input w/ my carPC in the trunk. If the HD radio uses an aux input, that's not ideal as I'd prefer not to have to run sound thru the carPC then to the stereo.

The display supplied with the Visteon or the Directed unit, isnt used!
the antenna is you're car antenna
the audio comes out via 2 rcas, which you would bring into your CARPC via line In or Mic In or some other IN
are people ruuning out of INs? could design a USB In only device, with multiple selectable inputs
just what i needed to know.. ordering now :)

Just ordered one for me...
Which of the two tuners has the best reception?
cartoys sure is slow in "processing" this purchase.. i'm wondering if they're sold out :|
look at them, they are identical!
ok, one is black, one is grey
but its the same tuner, also the Directed one is hard to find, they so soon after they released it, discontinued it... (prob cause they sell Sirius)
i dont know how long the visteon will remain around, i bet due to this being new technology, it dont last long
but if you wan HD Radio now... nab it and enjoy
im really happy with mine, makes my AM sports talk sound great (AM HD)
im not much of a FM listener, cause thats just music, if i want that.... i use mp3s...
