  • Does silabs provide artist/song info?

    I was considering purchasing an HD radio setup, but that gets very expensive, very quick - especially for somebody on a budget like myself. My interest in HD radio in the first place, was to have the ability to see artist/song info - does the silabs usb setup provide this? (through centrafuse of course)

    I didn't think the Silabs USB radio units were HD Radio compatible.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      I remember seeing a youtube video with the silabs software showing the artist/song being played at the time - someone feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken...

        Silabs is a not for automotive use tuner, while it works, it works, its just not ideal...(FM only too).
        its a RDS tuner, so what ever the broadcaster sends you can get
        there is NO offical artist/song info defined in RDS, and in USA, RDS is dying fast....
        for artist/song, its HD Radio...

        "Did you test it in carwings??"

        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

          Ahh, I see. What are the good tuners available then? Having radio available is nice at times.
