    I've been thinking about this. Could it be that because the chip is from a 'desktop' type radio set that it will be lacking in features like TA, AF etc? Could it be worth trying to find out what chip is used in head units and seeing if you can get hold of one?

    Also, if anyone still has one of these desktop radios (nrgizerbunny?) can they ascertain from that how the aerial set up worked?

    I have to say, I still think that having the Silabs (or whatever for FM) as a separate module is the way forward, with my new DAB/FM combined aerial I get really good signal at the Silabs. It would need someone to put multi tuner code into RR/CF though. There is a multi tuner silabs.dll floating around on the UK forum for running 2 Silabs but I don't know if any of the RR coding team have ever had a look at it, or whether it's of any use at all. I only wish I had the coding skills myself.

    I have looked at 4 DAB chips and none support this functionality as far as I am aware.

    Would it not be an idea to look into a Centrafuse module that is able to pull traffic information from say the AA or similar in the UK?

    Hi Craig - any estimate on when the updated CF plugin will be available?

    Only reason I ask is that I want to try a new version to see if I can get it to work in CF. Who knows, recombobulated files might make a difference. If it is going to be a way off then I will try upgrading to windows7 on the carPC so I can get the puter back in the car and give some results back to the readers with my antenna.

    Speaking of which gents, where do I find the signal / packet loss stats that people want to know about?

    OK a i have a bug.

    For whatever reason when i clear the saved station list from within settings it reverts back to the previously saved list.

    For instance, clear the list - re open ultimate radio plugin - list is clear - re scan and add new stations - exit plugin - shutdown & re boot PC - open plugin - previously saved presets are there but not my new ones.

    Now in the mean time is there somewhere i can edit the file manually to clear the list?

    Also in addition to my previous feature request ( first 10 station saved under preset 1 and next 10 under preset 2 and so on) could we have the ability to change the name of the plugin under settings so my display name could be whatever i choose?

    Cheers

    James
