Appologies....PM feature now switched on
Many Thanx tickertapes
Yes, the V7 coupled with the slave firmware and appropriate controlling software will be the Holy Grail to take this project to the next level.....can't wait....Just wish I was qualified to asist all those chaps on here generously contributing their knowledge and time to the project.....
I have now destroyed a brand new Sony, changed the header, fitted it to my CB board and made a 'utility' skin. So far I have the following problems.
1/ A DAB scan finds no stations, signal strength showing 0
2/ I can only get one local FM station well, plus a couple of week stations.
Is the V5 far less sensitive than the V7? I am only using the traditional 'bit of wire' as I dont have a proper antenna, but I had acceptable reception on the V7. Could the problem be due to the 'different power rquirements' I have seen mentioned before. Do I need to build a circuit to nrgeizerbunny's schematic (pg122), I could probably do this using a pre-mounted FT232RL.
Also fro the Skin/control side, can anyone help with.
1/ the button command for presets
2/ Is there a way to directly tune to a frequency in FM? Tune or seek up/down with no display of frequency is all I have now.
3/ If I get this far, how do I display the station logos?
Any help much appreciated, will order DAB/FM aerial now.
jeffhills, did you read the documentation?
look in the documentation folder...radio modules...
there is some info there
also "RTUNE;xxxx" works in FM ONLY
there is presets too.. using the list
what you need is a v5 skin example
"Did you test it in carwings??"
Sun, Come shine my way
May healing waters bury all my pain
Wind, Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return To live again
Thanks for reply
The 'utility' skin was a blank page with all the commands and display items listed in the documentation, I have now found a skin on nrgeizerbunny's website that fills in the gaps, I think I can make a usable skin now.
I have found a posting from CB stating that the latest card does support V5, so I will have to wait for the Kinetic aerial to arrive to check reception, I am assuming this will work OK indoors without the car roof as a groundplane.
Just the station logo's then! (Has anyone done this in RR).
Thanks again for your continuing help
was wondering if you have any of the circuit boards complete working and for sale, I have a unit from CB but I managed to damage the USB board but have not been able to find a replacement
I would be looking for ones that don't have the USB socket on as they will be soldered directly to a USB hub.
or if anybody new a stockiest where I could get a replacement USB board
hi, is there any way of setting volume without the "standalone app" ?
- it just crashes on my system every time.
Thank you for doing the job Craig Brass should have done..
