    Just a bit of an update,

    I've started to work on the FM side of things now, DAB is functioning well and I'm happy with that. I am trying to fix the FM so it works equally as well as the DAB.

    Progress is slow but getting there, will post as and when i get further.

    Hi, im in Australia and am researching DAB+ integration.

    I am about to start building my second carpc, but will be testing indoors replicating the car first.
    i thought i'd start with DAB+ as it covers nearly all of our stations here is Australia (both old FM and AM)

    If there is anything that i can help with to get DAB+ working, i'm willing to help / test.
    I will do some more research in the coming days and look closely at the Venice 7

    I can assist with a pcb but not a dab+ module i'm afraid. we simply don't have DAB+ in the UK.

    The Pure radios we get here don't have dab+ they are just pure dab.

    you'll need to sort your software out. Electrically I've tested with a venice 7 and no problem.

    Another Australian here, also interested in DAB+
    I currently have a RadioShark to modify for FM use but will not bother if this DAB+ comes available.

    I sent a message to fire, offering a PCB and assistance to get the DAB+ working and didn't get a reply. I'll open that offer to anybody in OZ if interested.

    Hi nrgizerbunny,

    I am very good with electronics being an electrical engineer and have done many projects for my car, supplying made items for other members of my 4WD forum.

    I would be very willing to help get a DAB+ unit working here in Oz and welcome the chance to help out. Ofcourse I would pay for parts sent. And I will be using RR so I could also test that interface as well.

    Good to have you on board!.. I have purchased a DAB+ radio (Bush) and hope it arrives today / tommorrow.. it will either have Venice 5.1 or 7.
    I also use RR. i think if we both work at this, we can make the Aussie RR community pretty happy

    I'm still here, i don't think i got that msg, but i think that RevHeadKev is the best bet to get this working seeing as he is a electrical engineer... I'm ok with electronics / software, but im a civil engineer, so its purely a hobby.
    I'm trying to source the parts for a flasher so i can flash the venice when it arrives to slave.
    I havent found the latest pcb to build yet (did you msg me here or on digital car?)...

    Tuned Wolf sells a flash kit, contains PCB and all components.

    Depends if you're brave enough to work with surface mount components really.
