    I'm doing wrong

    Sorry about the speech, I use a translator. I can not run the Venice7 in my pc. I have read everything posted in the forum and have not gotten it to work.

    My PC runs under Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bits. Zotac Mini ITX Motherboard with 1.66. Centrafuse 3.6

    Explain with pictures as I installed the Venice7 if anyone can help me and tell me that I did wrong.

    Copy the plugin and stick it into the appropriate directory

    And this is the skin that I get. It does not recognize Venice7 and even shows me the skin that you have designed in the forum. What happens?, I'm doing wrong?

    Any idea how I can correct the defect?. The plugin does not need a file named with a .xml?

    Ok already running. I needed to add the button skin. I mistook the default button that brings Centrafuse Radio FM, AM.

    You can remove/ignore Radio AM/FM/HD as this is another type of radio.

    Thanks to IBF

    Thanks for your work on the Ultimate DAB centrafuse 3.6 plugin, installed your plugin, linked the button, changed the com port, and that was it, once again a fully working DAB radio in CF 3.5/3.6 !!! After 6 months of getting nowhere with Craig Brass !!

    In fact a far better plugin from yourself than the original one from CB for Centrafuse 3.

    Once again Thankyou ibf

    This device is able to get sound through the USB port. No reason, I think for any drive that I have installed, I'm listening to the radio via the USB port. I can not control the volume but it is clear that it is possible. Anyone who can program and design a drive to the USB port?

    Just wondering if it would be possible to have a manual tune option where you can just enter in the frequency of the station you are after?

    Thanks for the good work

    This radio does not support audio over USB. The module only has RX/TX/RESET and L/R audio output. The original design use a MAX232 type of chip but this was replaced with the FTDI chip to control the module but Craig did not go further than that. So no USB audio, only a jack out for the audio.

    No idea, someone who has the radio should be able to tell you. It maybe be in the menu somewhere.

    Not possible with that firmware. It is meant for a clock radio, bedroom radio or kitchen radio. Their function is very limited and the module were meant to be part of a cheap hardware. Its basically a kitchen radio connected to your PC if you like.
