Default SIR-PNR2 and Pioneer DEH-P4800MP wiring question

The Pioneer DEH-P4800MP head unit is SAT-ready with the SIR-PNR2 and as I understand it, you attach an IP-BUS cable between the head unit and the SIR-PNR2 unit. Does anyone know for sure if that's all that is required in the way of connections (besides the antenna, of course) or does the SIR-PNR2 have to have power/ground connections in addition to the IP-BUS cable?

Thanks!

Everything you could possibly want to know about the SIR-PNR2 without actually having to buy one:

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-OwNaofC...130SIRPNR2#Tab

And yes it looks like you'll need to run at least power and ground to the PNR2. Dunno about requiring a switched and constant 12v source, but you can find that out in the manual on the page I linked above. At a minimum you'll need a switched 12v source.

Crutchfield is an awesome place to get info about stuff you want to buy. They generally have the manual and some "hands on research" for what you are looking for.

I have the same head unit as you by the way, and I think it's great!

Thanks PM! I should have known to check Crutchfield for this info...you're right, they are a great source for stuff like this.

Looks like you attach it to a constant 12V power source and ground.

And yes, the Pioneer DEH-P4800MP is great! As much as I like my XACT Replay, I just don't feel comfortable leaving it in the car and tempting someone to break-in and yet I find it a pain to have to unplug/plug it each night (I don't have a garage to park in and my neighborhood is known for it's vehicle break-ins), which is why I am thinking about the SIR-PNR2 since it installs completely out of sight. Of course, then you still have the antenna on your roof, which tells a thief you have satellite radio, so they may break in anyways to investigate further.
