    Time for a new developer?

    I think its about time someone else (maybe the Centrafuse guys) took over the development of this project. I get the feeling that perhaps Craig has bitten off more than he can chew. He certainly isn't allocating the resources required to provide timely support to his paying customers.

    1. None.

    User Manual
    1. None - someone needs to do this or a small explanation how the buttons work.

    Anyway heres hoping Craig is OK
    Unfortunately, I think Craig's business model was to always stack up pre-orders before he had actual stock; relying on the fact stock was due to come in - in a timely manner.

    When the stock doesn't come in however.....

    Good to see that orders are still going out, perhaps Craig has just taken some time to focus on that, who knows.

    In any case if he is stepping away from the product I would also hope that he passes the plugin over to someone to manage, it is nearly there in terms of completeness, but would be a shame if no one maintains it so we can't upgrade CF etc.

    Well craigbrass own forum has had the bot attacks fixed and he has replied to someones post saying that his next version of the plugin should be available in a couple of weeks, i hope Andys venice 7 support is done before that.

    At least it looks like Craig is back

    Andy's plugin will not work with craig's radio. Both of his V5 and V7 plugin are meant for the homebrew DAB radio with slave firmware.

    What a joke

    Craig's modual and service has been a complete joke.

    I purchased version 1 in the early days and it came with the worst workmanship for a production item which I had to rework the board as it was pourly designed and looked like a 10 year old had soldered it.
    Then don't even get me started on the crap USB modual placement design and the headphone jack and mounting nut issue.

    Then being the surportative person that I am purchase a version 2 modual in good fath - Which as we all now know was being sold with no warning during purchase that it was going to take me 8 weeks plus to recive the item.

    Now I after all the waiting and not a great deal of support I open my package and the Motorola to SMB adapter I had ordered was missing.

    I hope that when I test this version it bloody works.

    Unless you a desperate I would steer clear of this item as the service is less than second rate.

    If people are going to provide a service you also need to stay on top of everything or warn people what to expect.
