    Radio Shark 2 might be an option.

    If you can find one.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Word of caution... I just purchased the Directed HD radio unit myself... but nobody has Mitch's cable to interface it to the computer. He said he was in process of releasing a USB cable, but it's not out yet and both store here and mo-co-so are sold out of the old cables.

    so that tuner does fm/am HD radio, does HD radio have a monthly charge like xm?

    HD Radio is free. The difference is that some channels Broadcast in HD, some don't.

    Best way I can describe it is like TV Channels. Your service provider can send you HD channels, but unless you have an HDTV you won't be anything out of it.

    I'm sure there is a more technical answer, but that's how i look at it.
