    HiJack, the diagnostic blinks you sent show 3 blinks as overloading/shorting the output. Should a SATA HD and an Intel Atom board overload the Opus 120? Or do both of the 12VDC lines have to be hooked up to 2 different input lines? If it's 2 different input lines, then what size fuse should I use?

    Side Notes and Misc. BS of Life :
    I have to fix my A/C, it's leaking... I'm converting it from R12 to R134a tomorrow. Got a friend with the equipment to take the R12 out properly.

    I'm on Twitter!

    I have also been working on a portable development environment for SCC. It consists of Processing, Python 2.5, MIT-GNU Scheme, Portable JDK, NetLogo 4.0.4, Dr. Java, and some other stuff. It fits on a 2GB flash drive. If anyone wants to help me test this, PM me.
    I have bad luck with vehicles...

    You have to take all devices into effect. The 12V rail on the 120 can only handle up to 3.5amp max. The 5V rail can handle 8amps. It could be you are maxing out one of the rails?

    I can unplug the SATA HD, and it still blinks 3 times. Surely the Atom doesn't overload the Opus 120

    You never know..... maybe its eating up all of the 12V amprage. How much does it say the Atom MoBo uses? Also, are you testing this in the car? If yes then set the voltage jumper on the PSU to 11V set it from jumper 5 (default) to jumper 4. It could be that your battery isnt strong enough.

    Well, the Atom draws 45W total, so...

    I got my A/C system converted with a retro-fit kit from AutoZone, it blows a lot cooler now, and I was also able to fix the leaks it had.

    Dude I totally failed this weekend at doing anything. I made it to Midland, TX for the job, but I missed the meet, didn't have time to touch base with you to meet up, etc. Bah.

    Tidder: That's cool, I totally forgot about it...

    Got the Opus 120 working, had to run 2 separate 12V lines to it. Now I need to figure out how to set the timer...

    WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wait a minute.... What gauge wire did you have going to it? A 4 gauge wire should have been more then enough. Infact I am running a 8 guage to my OPUS 320. If this is happening your not using the propper gauge which can result in dangerous situations. If I am not mistaken all the yellow wires (3) should go to a 4 - 8 gauge wire. Then the grounds (3) should go to a solid ground point. Anything like 16 - 24 gauge is bad and can cause a fire if overloaded. I dont know why I didnt think of this before

    I'm running 12AWG for now, just a temp setup until I can get everything sorted out.

    How do I go about setting the timer on the Opus 120?

    I really think you should use 8 or less. Thats not something you should half @$$. The electrical is the most important part of the install

    Go to http://opussolutions.com and download the manual.
