    Thanko's USB AM/FM RADIO

    Anyone given this device a try. Looks like they have two USB devices. One is similiar to a pen drive and the other is a larger unit found here

    I have not seen any reviews but, apparently Thanko is big on useless USB hardware......dunno how this would work but, curious if anyone has experience with it.

    Go HD Radio or nothing!

    It seems that after looking at the evidence, that all of the USB radio products are not reliable in a mobile automotive environment and will provide poor quality sound, at best. I tried a few USB options before I gave up.

    Then Mitchjs produced a cable and software interface for some HD radios and we can now rejoice . This is a serial interface that allows you to tune a HD receiver originally designed for an automobile. HD radio and regular AM/FM signals are now pulled in as well as any other tuner and can be used in the Road Runner front end with ease.

    Give it a whirl...
