  • WTB: D-Link USB Radio or anything really

    Hi. I'm looking for a D-Link USB radio if anyone is selling theirs. It doesn't have to be the D-Link in specific, but I don't want to use proprietary software to control it. I've messed around with Radiator and it's perfect for my application, so D-Link is good. But I have noticed Radiator is compatible with many FM tuners, not just the D-Link.

    Anyone have one? I think it is discontinued by D-Link so it's actually hard to find now.

    Thanks

        Check out the Radio Xtreme. This ships with Radiator as it's default software

        I'm not too sure of it's quality/signal strength though

              I do, I haven't finished the carputer (not fully installed yet) but I have tested the radio xtreme in my house and I got half the sations clear as day and the others were garbage. I'm asuming that I will get a better signal once it's hooked up to my car antenna.

              I will have a complete review once I get everything installed I hope to get it all done this weekend.

                    I use the Radioman AM/FM serial unit attached to a USB->Serial adapter. Seemlingly like all the other PC radio cards, the reception isn't always the best. It too works with Radiator and physically looks identical to the DLink (it's probably nearly the same parts inside). Do a search to find more posts about it. It was around $20 and i received it 4 days after it was ordered.

                      The Radioman has been working really good on FM, but AM depends on where you stick it because the AM antenna is inside the box (FM is on a jack). I put it way down inside the dash the first time and couldn't hear anything but noise. It's working a lot better up higher but still not all that great.

                        I haven't tried the AM part of the Radioman yet since it's not supported by Radiator.
