    Otherwise it's brilliant.
    Is this with the V5 slave using andy's CF 3.5 plugin?

    RDS is not supported on some slave firmware, the original V5 slave does.

    Hi ibf
    I can not speak for tickertapes but I am also experiencing the same bugs at present and I am using V5 module/slave firmware on Andy's CF 3.5 plugin. I'd love to contribute to this project by correcting these, but at present do not pocess the programming skills to acheive this. If anyone can point me in the right direction I am willing to learn (Seriously). I just ordered two books on Visual basic 10 to get me started.

    Learn c# with at least .net 2.0 and you won't look back, seriously!

    Where did the module came out from? It is possible that those were pulled from a radio that doesnt support RDS.

    You are probably having the same problem as this guy :

    Unless Andy's latest plugin doesnt support RDS, I dont know I havent tried it yet.

    Venice 9 and Wolfsburg evaluation board

    I see that Frontier Silicon has released an evaluation board called Wolfsburg that is operated by a PC and has a Venice 9 slave mode chip fitted. http://www.frontier-silicon.com/prod...Venice9_PB.pdf

    Has anyone tried to get hold of one and to create a frontend for it. If I understand it correctly Frontier Silicon has already developed some sort of PC software for it.

    Hi guys

    I want to run my module standalone, but the http://www.craigbrass.net/standalone.zip does not seem to run at all. I saw that someone else had the same problem in post 1100 something, and got a pointer to a radio.zip. That one seems to work, but is an app with very simple GUI.

    Which standalone app am I suppose to use? And do I have to install .NET 4 myself before running the app?

    B-O

    I have the same problem. Radio.zip works. Standalone app is not working.

    I have tried to contact Craig Brass both on phone, via their website ticket service and via email. No response so far.

    So it look like the sellers doesnt want to get involve with this DAB anymore, I wasnt surprised that it came to this.

    If anyone is interested in CF 3.5 plugin or a standalone apps let me know but I will need helps as I dont have craig's module to redo my old apps made for V5.
