      I'm wondering if anyone has tried to do this themselves, i mean building a radio with usb ?

      Found some chips for the radio and the usb part of it : http://www.futurlec.com/News/Atmel/AMFM.html

              the chipset in the D link supports AM / FM / FM stereo and apparently RDS
              the drivers dont take full use of the chipset

                Really...if so, then that is VERY interesting!

                Maybe we need some hardware gurus to take a look and re-write the drivers to enable these features.

                This however is something that I'm not familiar with at all, so I don't nominate myself to do it

                  Someone did, do a search - and is looking at the D-Link at the moment. I don't think the bit is actually connected, so the D-Link would need an extra wire to the serial port?

                    I saw this and this a while back and thought it looked interesting. It looks like a good starting point if you changed to an automotive tuner module and a USB pic.

                      In the software development forum we were talking about RDS and D-Link. I've built a small RDS demodulator (2 ICs and a bunch of other passive components) and wrote a library for it. It needs a COM port for the RDS stream.
                      On the hardware side, the demodulator can be hooked to any fm tuner, D-Link included (the D-Link chip can't demodulate/decode RDS subcarrier).
                      What i need is to finish up the library and some developer to be interested in implementing his radio module with my library.
                      In this post you'll find a screenshot of the tester application:
