    Some people want to build their own. Those whos into electronics probably have 99% of the parts already and can put it together in a few hours. Many guys in the other site have done it. Cant see why the australians cant do the same for their DAB+

    People on this site like challenges, building a working DAB radio isnt as hard or expensive as some make it sound. Its been proven on the other site.

    In the worst scenerio they can always flash it with a master firmware and use your plug. In theory it should work. I cant see why not.

    As long as it is Frontier base master firmware then it should work fine with our plugins.

    If everything else fail, dump the firmware and use that. Those who bought your radio might want to replicate it for a friend or family. Cant see why it cant be done if they really want to.

    Venice 7
    3.3v reg
    1.2v reg
    USB to Serial or MAX232
    all mounted on a piece of tripboard

    = venice 5 project on master firmware, simples.

    Great little project for those who have a portable radio collecting dust.

    i received mine, fitted it to car PC, its good, but i think needs a bit of refining, definitely worth the wait tho...

    the volume up/down control for the radio (not main) takes ages to work and causes allot of lag

    FM is crisp and clear, so is DAB.

    Switching from DAB to FM and visa versa is kinda slow (is this normal?)

    Switching from one preset in FM to another is slow, but once you've done it and do it again within say 20 seconds its quick....

    When in DAB mode i cant figure out how to switch between stations? is there any way to see a list of available stations?

    Resumes nicely from hibernate, no audio issues reported yet, tunes all the FM stations I'm used to niceley....

    Stand alone program doesn't work on CAR PC but does work on home PC, says something about side-by-side error.

    the whole feel of the CF plug-in is a bit "lumpy" if that makes sense...

    but overall kudos to you, its definitely worth it, and I'm sure once the bugs are ironed out it should be an ideal solution...

    worth noting i was able to just "plug and go" with no faffing around, which is not normal for CAR PC additions.
