If all the references are still there somewhere buried in the attachments which only forum members can see, then there is still the Sony firmware which either needs to be "given" from someone who has it OR purchased by obtaining a much more expensive Sony radio so that the Venice does not have to be flashed. But this will not guarantee you will have a DAB+ capable unit when completed as the firmware in the Sony units may not be both DAB+ capable AND slave compatable.
Yep, sorry, realised in the car on the way home it should have been UNassembled board.
The parts for the board would add approximately £5 say ?
So we are still at only £50 compared to the £80-£100 quoted by Craig.
Sure the Venice 7 would be more (but double you think ?) and there is labour also, but the Venice 7 will be purchased as a single item rather than with all the extra radio hardware, assembly labour and packaging. Also the prices quoted from digital-car UK Forum included the labour charge from those concerned (minor as they say the charge was) AND all the parts were purchased at RETAIL cost, not trade discounted bulk costs.
