  • WinTV Radio

    So I've searched for what is needed to get WinTV Radio to work with Road Runner. Based on that I placed a WinTV folder in my Road Runner folder. I also downloaded the winamp plugin.

    I can get WinTV Radio to work, as in, I can change the stations, but I can't see all the other features such as signal strength and I can't do a scan and all the other features. What am I missing?

    I also have other issues like when I open Radio, it works as far as I get sound but when I come back from hibernation, I get sound for a split second and than the sound is gone. I am using the line-in plugin and the audio is coming from my PCI card, into the CD audio.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Well I don't know about the rest but on the resume from hibernation, you might want to try to change channels ( I have my radio skin setup to channel up then down whenever its opened - this sorta resets the radio)

      What version of the wintv application are you using ?

      Because RR uses the wintv application to control the radio, it is fairly mimited to the information it can provide from it -- basically, you have no stereo or signal information in RR. You should be able to: turn radio on/off, change stations, seek/scan and display the current frequency in RR -- That's is what the interface supports.

      Please do this test:
      -Open the WinTV radio application by itself (outside RR)
      -Press the + and - keys to verify it changes the frequency up/down
      -Press the END and HOME keys to verify it SEEKS/SCANS down/up
      -Verify that the current frequency is displayed in the window title

      If all the above work, it should work in RR as well. Note that the seek/scan function in RR works with the same keys as the +/- frequency -- you simply toggle "SCAN" mode on then press the same keys and it will scan instead of changing the frequency up/down -- this however may vary according to the skin used.

        Thanks Guino. I'll get those results to you when I have a chance to test.

            You can set it manually if you want.. check with BlueZX3 what disables that option. To set it manually, edit RR.INI and change these settings:

            radiomode=3
            radiatorpath=c:\program files\wintv\

            (adjust path as needed to point to where the wintv radio application is installed)

              Thanks man , i figured out what caused it tho, apparently there has to be a folder named WinTV in the RideRunner folder for wintv to work(in RR Config that is ) :/

                Yes, there used to be some required files in RR in that folder for the wintv.. I'll ask Blue to update RRConfig.

                  alrighty i've got another problem that i think is some kind of bug in riderunner.

                  On a fresh start everything works fine, entering radio.skin and clicking one of the presets plays radio , seeking and tuning all works fine.

                  Exit radio.skin and opening audio_browser.skin start playinga song and then go back to main and into radio again.

                  The WinTv radio application starts , the sound starts for about half a second then it's muted, why is this ?

                  If i right click the radio app in toolbar and disable mute everything works fine again.

                    What's the radioline= setting in rr.ini ? make sure it's zero (radioline=0), then run the wintv radio by itself first and make sure it works.. then it should work fine in RR.

                      Radio works fine by itself , radioline set to zero.

                      Luanched radio before starting riderunner doesn't affect anything , since the first launch is OK , then when you go back the app is closed and when you enter radio again it starts and then is muted.

                          The WinTV support in RR is made to work with THIS APPLICATION:
                          http://www.hauppauge.com/html/radio.htm

                          Newer versions of the application should still work IF the new version still accepts the same functions (which is unlikely if the application looks any different).

                          If your WinTV card works with the application above, then it should work with RR by selecting WinTV and setting the path in RRConfig to the application above.

                            You know, that's the app that works with my WinTV Card. But its in a subfolder of wintv.

                            in Order to help you about my setup i am using RR with DFX4.0 Skin

                            is there a problem using that?

                              It should work, what RR version are you using ?

                              In the latest RR versions you should have installed the WinTV Radio plugin, then selected WinTV in the Config, and set the path to the application.

                              Can you set those in RR.INI:

                              debugmode=true
                              debugfresh=true
                              radiodebug=true in RR.INI
                              wintvpath=c:\program files\wintv\wintv7\radio\

                              Then run RR, go into radio, exit RR and post a ZIP of your debug.txt file so we can see what's going on?
