  • Who is currently testing?

    So...Who is the current memebers who got a Mp3Car BBHD for testing?


    I will be able to answer any questions here

    Support for this tuner in RideRunner and Centrafuse 3 is avail
    I will post some more info shortly

    RideRunner:
    current release of RideRunner(11/2009)
    you can use right now, just set in RR.ini Radio=HDRadio (or use rrconfig)
    and optionally(really speeds up startup)
    HDRadioType=Mp3Car

    Current Firmware attached as of 11-17-09 (added by fiberoptic)
    Attached Files
    -Thanks

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    Will there be documentation released on the protocol for interfacing with this radio? :-) I may not be able to get my hands on one yet, but I can certainly try to provide a Linux solution as quickly as possible once it's released.

      I just received one Saturday. I've loaded the drivers but hadn't yet loaded RideRunner. Malcom, I was checking out RevFE to see if it supported it as I wanted to feature it in my video!

        Yeah besides what we saw at AFK fest, this is the first time I've actually heard much about these units, so I haven't really had a chance to implement anything at all. If it's not an entire dissimilar protocol from the Visteon HD radio it should be fairly easy to put support in for it.... When I say Linux, I mean Linux and Mac of course btw

          I'd love to test it as soon as Mitch builds the modular boomsbox/xmd interface with audio over USB.

            the boomzbox IS audio over usb . And it works succesfully in RR and CF. I'm finishing my review today.

              Mitch, having trouble with getting the hardware SC-C1 recognized. It recognizes the audio device but can't locate the drivers for SC-C1. What am I doing wrong?

                If its truly audio over USB its probably not going to be as easy as just a com protocol

                  Not really (Unless you're using c# of course :P), USB itself is fairly easy, and if it's a known USB DAC chip there might already be a Linux audio driver for it. I'm curious if it uses a separate virtual COM, usb control messages, or what for the actual HD radio control and RDS/HD-Text returns. I didn't get a chance to look at the actual hardware, but once they go on sale and I manage to afford one I'll open it up and find out :-D

                      I didn't say difficult just harder then just com.....but so nice to hear you'll be writing a Linux driver for all of us :P

                        When I finish testing, I'll send it over to him.

                          Really? That's awesome man. I'ma have to send it back so you can test RevFE'-OSX with it once I'm finished of course

                          No clue if OSX would be possible unfortunately, but it won't stop me from trying.

                            It should work with OS X. There's ftdi drivers for the Mac.

                              My main concern was the USB audio driver
