  • If you use Centrafuse 2 or 3 or 3.1

    I will try to keep this updated

    Mitchjs SkyDrive

    there is a HDRadio Radio Module update installer for each version of CF2 and CF3.0

    CF3.1 doesnt need update at this time

    I have created a program, that will automatically configure Centrafuse (ALL versions)
    to be set for BoomzBox HD
    this includes the Recording line for XP os (since it doesnt enumerate in CF(all versions) on XP)


    as i fix things... i will post...and update this thread

      CF3.x WINDOWS XP SETUP

      looks like CF3 has a bug that it cant properly enumerate all audio devices on the record side... there is a simple work around

      SETUP UP AS HDRADIO, BUFFERED RADIO ON, 100khz spacing
      save and exit CF


      edit the config.xml directly in the CF data directory, system
      in my XP system:

      REMEMBER to enable show hidden folders....
      and of course the correct user name

      C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Centrafuse\Centrafuse Auto\Mitchjs\System

      find:

      <RADIOLINEIN>1|-1</RADIOLINEIN>


      the 1st number 1, in this case is the index of my audio record device
      "USB Audio CODEC "

      try 1,2... depends on how many audio record devices one has (you can look in ones audio control panel)

        I have followed these instructions precisely on 2 computers. I realize that this is a known issue but the config editing solution is not working for everyone.

        I have edited the RADIOLINEIN to 1, 2, 3, up to 6 just to make sure. Does not list the device in CF, and does not "just work".

        What about this...What does your config.xml say for "RADIODEVICE" ? Mine says NONE. My RADIOLINEIN also said NONE before I changed it.

        Any other ideas?

        UPDATE: I want to clarify that I see the device in the PLAYBACK LINE IN but not the RECORD LINE IN. I don't know how to fix that.

          the paths are all for CF3
          so you're editing the wrong file

          working on a solution

            But it's the only config.xls on my system for centrafuse, so it has to be that one.

                I used the program.

                It worked. I don't know how, but it did. That folder did not exist until I did something with the HD Radio install, then it worked instantly.

                Well, amazing. Another problem solved.

                Unfortunately the BoomzBox remains a very difficult piece of hardware to configure with Centrafuse. And because Centrafuse has so many version-specific plugins, skins, and other things, I don't see people updating regularly.

                I think the fix should be on FLUX's end, not yours.

                Nevertheless, it was a great fix, and I am very happy with the quality of the product.

                  the folder is typically hidden on XP, but it was always there

                  well.. flux prob isnt going to fix anything on cf2..

                    Well hi, I got my BoomBox HD and I am trying to get it working in CF but nothing seems to work so far. I am able to see the device when I run the script you created but it still does not work. Wierd but if I click on it on the settings page it dissapeers from the selections and is no longer available but if I run the script it puts the entry in again ans as long as I don't try to select it as the device it remains the chosen device. I am using CF 3.1 on windows 7 the included software works fine it is CF not choosing it properly.

                      I don't use CF 3.1 or Win 7, but if my experience on CF 2.1 with XP is any indication, you'll be working with this for at least a miserable week.

                      Advice: READ THIS THREAD AND DON'T ASSUME YOU KNOW ANYTHNG! Normal knowledge doesn't seem to apply. Come at it as if you are an old person with no windows knowledge. Just do everything that Mitchjs says, word for word. Do not improvise.

                      The Bad News:

                      It is difficult to make it work. It is twitchy and is simply a product for very advanced users. It is not a plug-n-play solution for the home PC. Not at this point in its development.

                      The Good News:

                      I've been using it daily, installed in my car for 5 weeks and once it starts working and you don't mess with it, it JUST WORKS. No problems, to issues of any kind. Turns on, turns off, and works.

                      So it's a mixed bag. But in the end, I have positive things to say about it. Generally.

                        simplepr, its due to bugs in CF

                        with CF3.1 and windows 7, it should be really simple..
                        go into advanced settings, AM/FM
                        select HD Radio as tuner type, BUFFERED AUDIO ON
                        select Recording line (HD Radio (USB Audio Codec))
                        on page 2, set tuning spacing to 100khz

                        SAVE

                        and then, for the heck, exit CF and restart... go to radio
                        1st time, it might take a little time for the radio to be found
                        as it learns the comport...

                        thats it

                        it just works from there


                        also.. hopfully, u didnt install a hdradio update for CF3.0 on CF3.1 if u didn
                        reinstall cf3.1
                        -Thanks

                            but CF3.1 dont work with radio....i have installed the patch thing for cf2.0 cf3.0 despite having 3.1...beacuse i was at whits end trying to get it to work and not read this thread. what do i need ot do to sort it?? i cant quite make sense of the last sentence written by "mitchjs" in his last post

                            also in the stock software i want to get the stations 95.8 and 100.00 but i can only get 95.7 & 95.9 , 100.1 & 99.9 , is there anyway to change the step it tunes in?? also once i get it working in centrafuse will it tune in to every 100k as opposed to 200k?

                              ONCE you install the UPDATED(what u call patch), the radio wont even be available as choice in CF3.1

                              NO UPDATE is NEEDED FOR CF3.1

                              repair cf3.1


                              and no, you cant tune even frequencies, the tuner is made for USA
