  • MediaCar Radio Supplement

    While coyote has not finished his Radio section, I decided to undertake my own

    Here is the file, instructions are in the ReadMe file

    Attached are some pics of it in action

    Hopefully it's pretty simple to understand


    Basically, you can tune in 3 main ways:

    1. Type in the frequency directly, hit "Tune" (once you type in 5 digits for example 10585 it will automatically tune that)

    2. Select a preset
    2a. Single-click a preset and click Tune
    2b. Double-click a preset
    2c. Type in preset number, press Tune

    3. Use the Tune Up/Down and Fine Tune Up/Down to browse frequencies. Press/hold to move quickly. Scan delay and amount is changeable in the .skin file

    If there are any bugs/requests/suggestions/praises, please post them here

      What Radio Tuner Cards does it support?

      Edit: Nevermind I read the next thread It supports Everything that Radiator Supports. It says something about supporting Hauppage WinTV. Does anybody know if this is the usb TV/FM tuner?

        kram,

        You have more than 11 presets, don't ya

        I wasn't expecting many more than about 8, but I made 11 labels, which is why it's failing on number 12

        If you want that many presets, then I'll have to try to figure out how to scroll/show more

        That could take me a little time But here (link removed - download latest .zip file) is the latest EXE which will allow you to at least load it with a full station list! You'll be able to scroll soon, I hope


        antimatter,

        Not right yet...I'm on the lookout for an SDK for it, to see if I could possibly make a plugin for Radiator for it. Don't hold your breath for me to do it, however

          Nice job Confused, I will give that a go this weekend.

          Wish I'd ran that aerial lead from the dash to the boot now.

          But I will put the D-link outside the boot and give it a test.

              If someone can provide me with:

              SDK for it, and instructions on how to control it
              A plugin for Radiator
              A program I can send commands to (like I am with Radiator)

              But I guess changing what it does isn't all that difficult...it might take a little while, but it's definately do-able

                      I know of two programs that will work with the XMPCR, I don't know wahts involved in making them work for this application but if you like I can get them for you from XMFAN.COM. er...no I can't. XMFAN is having a little bit of legal troubles....there is one available here by Gork. It works really well. I don't know if this helps...I hope it does. Where would I get the SDK for you, I guess you don't know either. I'll look around and see if that is something I can get my bloody paws on.

                        Updated!

                        You can now load in a station list up to 24 stations long (the max Radiator supports), and you can scroll up/down the list as you can in standard MediaCar (although not by a page at a time...i couldn't figure that out

                        The latest is in the .zip file (linked in 1st post), please download it again to make sure everything you have is the newest

                          Try making sure that Radiator is set to minimise to tray, and minimise it. It should hopefully then stay hidden
