    My setup is a Gigabyte GA-E350 with on-board sound. I am running W7 HP32. Using the on-roof antenna I am using DAB and DAB+ throughout the whole area like shown on the distribution maps. I am not using the FM since this is worse then my car tuner.
    The FM on the venice is not very good compared to a proper HU, but definately better than the silab.

    I am running win 7 32 bit with a soundblaster x-fi 5.1 USB sound card

    cheers
    Ok Cheers.

    Im currently on 2 projects at the moment but I will take a look at it as soon as I have the time.

    the problem is the modules, you have to secure you own Venice5 or 7...
    i do have the firmware to the venice7 that has serial control for masters, its not that hard to flash
    but it is a little work...

    i got one v7master module from some tessco dab111 radio... but did have to flash it...
    Is this exactly the same as CB's board? or is this a newer version of the one he currently offers? I guess you made a firmware dump of CB's radio? As for anyone wanting to flash their own, the instruction is at DC somewhere.

    Unfortunately there are too many cheap chinese DAB radio on the market now and venice is no longer the choice for these type of radios, they are only found in the more expensive one. I was checking Tesco a few days ago and they no longer sell the DAB111. It has been replaced by the cheaper one which most likely use the quantek module.

    Afternoon guys and girls, I have now started a dispute with paypal to get my money back and nearly through the time alloted for Craig bias to respond they haven't so far!

    So I need an alternative FM / DAB radio for the the UK not worried about AM.

    Any ideas?

    Tom

    yoo folks... need some help

    i have a V5... when rr starts debug.txt says:

    Code:
    Venice5---> RadioPowerOn: Create Radio Object
    Venice5---> RadioStart: Com Port COM5 Opened, waiting for ATR
    ...
    ...
    Venice5---> RadioStart: Radio found on COM5
    Venice5---> RadioPowerOn: RadioOn()
    Venice5---> FmTuneEvent: TUNED to 97,00
    so can can say i have set rr.ini right...?

    but when i fire the BAND command to change from FM to DAB i get:

    Code:
    08-12-2011 00:35:21: Executing: BAND
    08-12-2011 00:35:21: Command not executed: BAND
    I have made a very basic carwings skin:

    Code:
    RideRunner Skin
    RRScreen "radioplayer"
