    this is not a scientific test but put a meter across the +5v and 0v on the board and see what resistance you get

    I've just ripped apart a Sony XD-RS55 DAB stereo (ebay 25), replaced the 30 pin header and now thanks to Andy Whittaker have brilliant FM and DAB running on CF3.5.
    The Display information now fills the entire screen width.

    Excellent work Andy.

    Question

    Hi Andy
    I'd be greatful if you can throw some advice my way regarding using this Dab radio project within the centrafuse environment? This project works exceptionally well for me but for one annoying problem which you or others may have experienced and know how to over come.
    Problem: If within centrafuse I move from music player to the Dab radio plugin the music will cease and the radio plugin will output the radio sound. Great
    But, if I move from the radio plugin to the centrafuse music player, then the radio will continue to output sound over the music player output unless I either unplug the usb radio or exit to the windows desktop. Not so great
    When I restart centrafuse in the same windows session, then music player and dab radio output resume together. Doubly not so great
    Is there some software argument or switch I haven't implimented to avoid this situation?
    I' m currently using win7 32bit
    Centrafuse 3.5
    Aureon 7.1 usb external soundcard

    I'm afraid a bug like that sounds like one of mine!

    Att Mute

    Hi BIRDMAN

    Having the same problem as you but at least I now know it's not something wrong with the rest of my setup.
    I'm just muting the line in to listen to MP3 although I must confess that it's a bit of a pain sometimes.

    I'm sure this is the way forward though, the slave software does seem much better and early indications would suggest that Andy's plugin in conjunction with a slave Venice 5 or 7 will be the perfect solution.

    I'm having a tinker with Andy's plugin myself to see if I can find what's changed and causing it to not work. Although I'm not really that good with software I thought I'd have a go just in case it's something small and easy to fix.

    I'm sure MR Whittaker will come to our rescue as soon as he has some time to spare.


    Paul.

    Well I decided to post in his own forum under the "Ulimate Dab".

    2 days ago I posted asking Craig if he had a release date for a CF3.5 plugin else he should release the source code so myself or some one else can keep the plugin up to date.

    No responce as yet.

    This is becoming more of a joke each and every day.

    I said if he is going to sell hardware then he needed to keep the plugin up as well.

    Look like at some stage I am going to have to go down the slave route.

    Is it feasible for someone else to create an alternative CF plugin implementation? Not that I'm interested in using CF, just curious.
