    Very low price for this device! I paid my silabs over 40 euros and I'm not so happy with radio reception

    It does, atleast the label cover it came in , says so. I have no way of checking it, my area does not support.

    I am happy with the Radio reception as of now..still not tested enough to recommend it to someone yet.

    Can someone guide me how to use it with Roadrunner?
    It came with a software of its own, and it plays with the software.!!

    Would you mind cracking open the case and letting us know what chips are in there? It might be another cheap silabs knock off if we are luck. If that's the case, you can use the silabs support in RR or CF.

    sviyer.. can you please send me the software that came in the CD ? My email id is spadival AT gmail DOT com

    The CD that came with the USB radio had cracked during shipment. I have requested dealextreme to send it to me, but they have not responded yet.

    Also, the antenna wire was INSIDE the USB dongle case !! I had to open it and pull it out. So if any of you find the wire missing in your case, you know where to look.

    Edit: Got the software from sviyer. However, the frequency seem to be stuck at 186 Mhz. Looks like I got a dud unit.

    So did we determine if this was Silabs or not?

    It has silabs chip inside.. atleast a chip with silabs written on it. However, the software downloaded from the silabs site doesnt work with this USB dongle, though the supplied software appears similar to the silabs one.

    They've probably changed the VID & PID. Would you be prepared to try some software I send you if you can tell me what the VID and PID are? You can find them in device manager - get properties on one of the radio devices, for example the USB Audio device, click on the Details tab. Silabs says "VID_10C4&PID_818A" for example.

    VID and PID are as follows for USB Audio Device :
    USB\VID_10C5&PID_819A&REV_0100&MI_00
    USB\VID_10C5&PID_819A&MI_00
