    When do you think you will have a slave mode plugin for the Venice 7 then Andy?



    [QUOTE=AndyWhittaker;1435634]Centrafuse 3.5 Plugin v35.1

    What is this for?
    This is for the DIYers who have a Venice 5 module and the Sony slave firmware.

    Changes Since the Last Release
    1. Now supports v3.5 of Centrafuse
    Download the plugin here: DAB_CFv35.1.zip

    Centrafuse 2.x and 3.0, 3.1 Support
    1. None.

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

    BUGS
    1. Various
    2. Needs a new skin to match v3.5

    Future
    Venice 7 coming soon....

    Good question, the thing is that I have a Venice 5 set-up in my car and it works great. It's only curiosity that I would like to get the Venice 7 version working.

    It's quite a lot of work to do but I image I could have one up and running in about a month.

    Finally Received Radio

    Hello all,

    I too just received my radio i ordered almost a month ago (was warned it would take this long).

    All appears to be working,

    Just a question i notice reception changes (i.e. DAB+ errors alter) if i move the headphones i have plugged in around (i.e. the rest is stationary), is that normal or is there an issue here?

    (Note: i can receive 29 DAB+ stations with only the SMB to Motorola plugged in within Sydney Australia)

    I received mine today as well, and a scan gives 15 DAB+ stations with only the SMB to Motorola adapter (no aerial). FM is also working fine. I'm looking forward to trying it in the car.

    Hey Mitchjs,

    It appears to have been shipped on the 24/2.

    As for the antenna i only had the smb to motorola adapter cable plugged in, nothing else.
