Does anyone know of a PCI or ISA FM tuner card that can be hooked up to a car antenna? Otherwise, is there an adapter?
That looks perfect, if you can manage to hook up the antenna. Keep us posted on that.
I also like their wireless networking products. Though a bit pricey, the 300-meter range makes my mouth water<g>.
if you can find a fm card with a coax hookup then you can hook it up to your car antenna. just go to radio shack and buy an extension for the car antennia and cut the femal end off and put a femal coax hookup on. its simple.

I have the D-Link USB radio. I use it at my office so I can listen to the radio without taking network bandwidth (I got in a little trouble while streaming the World Series [they didn't catch me at www.nakednews.com, streaming video ;-) ]). It uses a RCA plug to connect to the base (control unit). I guess you could do like Etrik said and buy an extension and a Male RCA plug instead of a coax. Plug it in and it should work.
A carputer?!? What in the hell is that?
I bought a ADS Cadet AM/FM Data Card from www.adstech.com which works great. It even picks up RBDS signals, which are signals that radio stations transmit that contain call signs, program type (rock, country, jazz...), the radio station's current time, location of the signal, and info about the current song playing (artist name, song, announcements, etc.).
There's even a version that will pick up cellular frequencies. (Only sold in Europe) It's only $40 and can be connected to your car's antenna. This is by far the best piece of hardware I've bought for my mp3 player.
Yes, it does. I was worried about losing the AM, but I won't have to now. How is it hooked pu to the car's antenna?
There is a coaxial connector on the card which serves as the input for the FM antenna. The connector on the end of the cable that comes from your antenna is the same size as a normal 1/8" stereo end. (Or is is the size of an RCA end? I forget.) Radio Shack will have an adapter that you can use to connect the antenna directly to your FM card.
