  • Can't get RDS texxt with Venice5 radio module

    Has anyone got RDS text to work with the Venice 5 radio module and the default RR skin?
    The radio modules works great but I cannot get RDS text to be displayed, I have verified that RDS text is broadcast using my home stereo.
    Any ideas ?

    it could be the skin. I have had no issues with the freedom skin.

            Yep, if you have a look at the videos on the link I have posted, you can see the venice running FM (with rds text) and DAB.

            Just make a note, a "DAB" car antenna has split outputs so it will not pick up FM and DAB together unless you build a multiplexer.

              rr label cmd "RDSText"

              in dab mode works fine, but in FM mode can take some time for it to appear and not all stations transmit rdstext in fm mode..

              i would use skintool and stick rdstext in the label box and tick auto update , switch between the 2 modes see what you get

                Just tried the freedom skin but RDS is not working in FM. The station is broadcasting RDS but it is not showing. We do not have DAB here in Greece.

                  i think i remeber now , mitch could not get much in fm mode to work nicley ,,, only DAB

                  and i think RDS text was 1 of the issues , to which case you won't get rds text in fm mode...

                  come to think of it , i hav'nt seen rds in fm mode , on the very short times i have used it ....

                        just so i don't confuse myself.

                        Are we talking about RDS as in radio station name

                        OR

                        RDS as in RADIOTEXT?

                        The venice 5 cannot do radiotext. It can only do RDS

                          V5 does support radio text. The function may have got lost during the rewrite of the SW.

                          Here is V5 receiving classic FM at 100.6Mhz showing station name as well as the text.

                              RDS text is working just fine from both Venice5 (master) and Venice7 (slave) modules so it must be an error in the software, not the modules.
                              Failure is not an option...
