    It works fine... The RadioXtreme has a mono mini jack plug for antenna in... All you do is get a car antenna extension cable and cut one end off... Then go to radio shack and crimp on a coax connector... Then use a coax to 1/8 mini phono adapter and plug right into the RadioXtreme... works like a charm...

    The RadioXtreme plug is properly grounded, unlike the worthless dlink people try to use...

    Hybernation & standby

    David: how does it react to hybernetion & standby. If it was playing and you place the system into hybernation, will it resume playing wants the system comes out of hybernation.

    works fine... yes it keeps playing out of hibernation... I have never had a problem with that except when using radiator with certain hardware...

    I plan to phase radiator out... just add direct support for most popular radio's and make sure they work or get reset when needed out of hibernation...

    David, would this method work with the Radioshark? It has a mini jack plug, but I'm not sure if it would work.

    Basically I got a car antenna extension cable, cut off an end, and soldered it directly to a miniplug connector, which did absolutely nothing.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I know that getting Radioshark to play along is not ideal, but it's the only thing that will do AM.

    it should... might have messed up the ground when you soldered... since antenna extension cables are coax, you can easily attach a regular coax connector, the style for cable TV... you have to know how to properly put those on too... spread the wire around and down before you slide on and crimp for ground... make sure you know how to attach with a coax crimper...

    then just get a coax to mono mini plug adapter...

    Thank you David!

    So can I use something like this with this, and then connect it to this?

    yep... they even make F connectors that are twist on so you don't have to buy the crimper... Getting a good connection with the F connector is crucial... if you don't properly connect it and get good ground, it will not work... google on how to properly connect connectors to coax...
