Thread: XM Radio PCR

  1. #1

    XM Radio PCR

    Two questions ...

    1) Can the PC XM radio pick up my local radio channels?
    2) How is the reception of the PC XM radio in the car?


    I had to remove my radio to install the car-puter. I would like to be able to listen to my local channels as well as XMs stuff, as well as my MP3s ... no point in loosing ANY music chances I called XM to ask them, and they didn't know (question 1). They actually told me to go to Best Buy and ask them! So I thought I'd ask you guys

    Thanks for your help!

    I have one of those D-link USB radios. I got it working with XP using that Radiator program (I used the search button to learn that ), but I am unhappy with the reception. Of course, I am doing all my testing in the warehouse, so I suppose the reception would be better outside.

    Oh well. I really wanted that XM radio, but not if it won't pick up local channels

    Does the D-Link USB work under Linux? I am not in the mood for WinXP for my system, and for the time (Until I get another pay check..) I am going to be using a P2 system that perfers Linux anyways, and when I switch systems, I just have to put the hdd in to the new system along with the Flashmedia card, and re-compile the kernel, and I am good to go!

    I am currently in the market for a USB FM card with TV reception and a seperate USB XM tuner. I've seen them on Ebay, so they are available.

    I've just got myself a D-Link USB FM device off ebay, and I have a Hauppauge and also a Pinnacle PCI TV card at home, so may use one or other of those for TV

    Those, along with my GPS mouse, will fill up half the USB ports, and the PCI slot on my Epia M10000 being delivered soon
