  • NEW: Digital Radio USB Dongle

    This Digital TV & Digital Radio USB dongle certainly looks promising, here's the data sheet for it, but I was really hoping this would be able to relay TPEG traffic data, but I don't think it does...

    It looks more like a TV tuner then a radio.

        It's both! Digital TV has been available via USB for a while as I'm sure your aware, not as compact as this mind you. However, I've not come across any with DIGITAL radio to boot, FM yes but this is the first USB DAB radio with DVB thrown in as I see it.

            Just the one USB on the motherboard?? There may well be pin outs for more ports on that actual board, or you could just use a usb hub if you need more ports....

                      That's DVB (plus DVB radio channels) not DAB, so there won't be any TPEG carousel will there?

                          You talking about that FM dongle or the thread's dongle?

                            My CarPC only has firewire or USB 1.1. As this is a USB device, does anyone know if it will work on 1.1 or does it have to have USB 2.0?

                            I know it says USB 2.0 in the spec document, but lots of USB 2.0 devices are backwardly compatible. Is this one?
