Sounds Over USB
I'm not fussed about a USB audio input - you'd be hard pressed to hear the difference vs 3.5MM into sound card input, and if you are short of USB connectors then a simple 2 port unpowered hub (such as is sold for laptops), coupled with a £5 usb 'sound card' off ebay will sort you out. It will even all go into the same box as the radio.
I am going to hold-off buying until the A nice, stable CF plugin makes an appearance though.
Understood, Nigel. Many people are waiting to see software which is fair enough. Hopefully I should have something to show this week.
Centrafuse are going to put this unit as the only recommended DAB radio unit and a recommended FM unit. They are also going to include our software out of the box from version 3.2 onwards.
And what about an update on the RR plugin ?
We have not started the RR plugin yet but the DLL we created as the interface to the radio for all applications is now done so I may well just pass it to the user "mitchjs" here who did the previous RR plugin. I have never really had much to do with RR so this may well make more sense. I'll speak with my main developer about it today and let you know, though. I know you want to get this properly hooked into your car pc now you have the unit!
I think this is a valid point. My only reservation would be most of the soundcards on ebay do not have a line level input, they are mic level.

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/106540 is the cheapest USB with line in as far as I know. I haven't seen any "small factor" ones that are built right into the USB port plug.
i have made a pool on the interest in a Ride Runner plugin for craig's tuner
yeah it's cross post i guess
anyone want a Simple USB Audio Input(capture) device?
tiny too... not cheap thats the problem... since I had to make them, in very small Q
the TI PCM2900 is $8 alone..
I can guarantee a plugin will be made as promised either by my developer or I'll pay Mitch to do it using our DLL. I'll post an update when I have one.
the general idea with the pool was to see how much interest there was among users... mitch might do it as a favor to Riderunner users... but not sure....
but of course if mitch has to do it there has to be enough interest in it i guess
