    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)



    Thanks
    Mitch

    here is a handy skin command (with guino's help...)
    a single button to toggle though the HD Sub Channels

    Code:
    "SETVARBYCODE;HDCHAN;HDSUB||SETVARBYCODE;HDCOUNT;HDSUBCOUNT||EVAL;HDCHAN;1+(($HDCHAN$)%($HDCOUNT$))||HDSUB;$HDCHAN$"
    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

    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 Silabs is working, but nowhere near where I want radio functionality to be. I'm hoping that HD radio is the solution, but definitely need more info as to how to set it up.

    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

    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...
