    FP and Radio ( Pci / USB ) trigger for antenna motor ???

    Does FP have the capabilities to trigger the antenna motor in cars that have them ???

    If not, does the relay board thats compatable have the ability to do such ???

    In FP 1.09 there is an option to start another program when frodoplayer starts.
    So you can use that as a trigger to accomplish what you want.

    You could just tap off the 5VDC and trigger it through a transistor or MOSFET. Not exactly when FP starts, but when the computer starts.

    Could get fancy and use the com or printer port and send that way through a program/script.

    yep theres alread a program written that sits as a windows service and turns a pin on your serial port high to flip a relay or transistor or wtfux ever you want to use. Link to relay info:
    Simply serial input circuit

    I don't remember what the link to the software was, may be in that thread, didn't look
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...
