    Unidentified usb FM tuner

    Can somebody help me identify thisd FM tuner. I would like to know if somebody uses this tuner and if it's compatible with RR. Maybe it's SiLabs based ?

    works ok in house but not in car ( like silabs )
    i messed mine up trying to solder the car aerial
    now im messing with brando's one - getting the same reception
    hoping to get it as good as possible soon ( trying some different stuff like grounding etc.. )

    don't get your hopes up reception wise..

    im from israel , sending it back and forth would cost probably as much as buying a new one

    soldering isn't a problem for me either
    the problem was that after my soldering the ground hole and signal point was bridged
    and in my attempts to unbridge it , it probably ruined the pcb
    now i get almost no signal , and no effect when connecting an antenna
    the funny thing that its still good for home use

    from what i gathered using this and the brando one
    signal is not the problem
    in my house i get perfect recption even when its on 20 ( at the silabstest program )
    in the car even at 40 i can't recieve something usable

    the problem is grounding
    i need to try connecting the grounding to different places ( some use the outer usb connector but it did no effect for me )

    if it will work for you it would be great if you would contact me or something , cuz i really like to have reasonable fm reception without spending on hqct / hd

    thanks

    Got the receiver and tested with original antenna and an external one and the reception is not very good. Maybe it's my antenna. For now i will stick with AverTV usb wich has very good reception with included antenna.

    Just a guess, but could it be the PLL is having problems locking because of all the noise in the car's power lines? Perhaps a power filter or just a battery would be able to get it more reasonable? Not too hard to try I suppose.
