For anyone who cares about empeg/XM radio integration, I'm going to be giving it a shot. The XM Direct XMD-1000 receiver is essentially a vanilla serial interface with a "published" (reverse engineered) protocol, and since there ends up being a lot of overlap with work I did for emphatic, I shouldn't have too difficult a time getting something fairly usable working.

The hardest part will probably be getting my cross-compiling environment running again and making sense of my old code, but stay tuned here for updates.

Also, I know several people talked about getting this going before, so if any of you did get there, please let me know before I duplicate your effort.

I was going to tackle it, but then my circumstances changed with the move to Belize and I never got to it frown Very interested in how it turns out even though I no longer have an Empeg to test it out on.

I've been tossing this idea around for some time now. Only problem is my huge lack of linux coding skills. I'm definitely a hardware guy.
