    As a matter of interest will does anyone know if nrgizerbunny's PCB accept the later Venice 7 chip ? If so can anyone recommend a suitable cheap donor radio?

    Tesco DAB111 for about 25. Make sure its not the DAB111V as it contains the Verona module. I think its discontinued now but Im pretty sure they still sell them in their shops. Its been replaced with a newer model, no idea whats inside, probably a verona as they are meant to be cheaper. Nice little module though.

    A V5 board will take V7. They are pin-pin compatible, the power requirement of the V7 is lower, so there shouldnt be any problems. You will need to flash the FW though, at this point your only option is CB's FW.

    Many thanks ibf
    I'm still experiencing the same auto mute issue with the XFI usb sound card installed and onboard sound chip disabled....
    So I think i'll try the venice 7 route as this seems to be sucessfull judging by the posts here. Shame cause everything else on my v5 works 100%.......

    v5 slave is 1000x more powerfull...and is a complete radio in RR

    CF is way limited of a front end... simple... RR is powerful ...complex

    for #2 maybe i miss read your issue...
    if you want some help pm me
    btw, i wrote all the code for RR v5 and v7

    #3 you can change the color all you want ....
    not font size, too complicated for me to allow it...so i dont

    Would It not be possible to include in RR config program the option of changing the color similar to changing the COM port in drop down window ?

    Less hasle than to change RR.ini manually

    venice 7 in RR

    Mitch

    I will stick with RR then, I have got it to do all I want (apart from phone contacts, but same with CF I think).
    I will re-read thread and try to find radio to get V5 slave and have a play with that, the V7 is working perfectly but missing a few extras.
    Problem 2 was no sound on selecting "RADIO" after power up, the radio was 'on' as station and song data was on screen, I had to go out of radio skin and back in to get sound. This problem has gone away with a different MoBo.
    Thanks again
    Jeff

    RR venice 5 Module

    I have ordered Sony XDR-S55DAB radio, as donor for V5 to try in RR. I do not have the V5 module in my RR download. Where can I get it?
    Thanks

    This is the closest I've been to an OEM NAV/Radio/MP3 solution in terms of quality,usability and reliability but with all the added advantages of a PC.

    Hi tickertapes
    You wouldn't mind telling me which version files you are using to control your DAB radio V5 chip in Centrafuse 3.6 and where you obtained them from ?

    its there, just select it from the installer...
    good luck, you now need a v5 skin, or make your own...
    since not many people have it, i dont think much work is done on it
