    I had to make up a connector/cable just like BJ did.

    It's an amazing little unit! As long as you keep the impedance loaded correctly it works like a little ripper! I'm glad you had the same excitement as I did when it worked so well

    ps I modified my site with the changes... http://orcboys.homedns.org/general/o...e_pc/index.htm under the radio section...

    BJ,
    I do get a little static in some areas. Would Quad shielded RG6 soldered straight onto the USB unit from the antenna, improve the reception at all over the current 4metres of RG59U airspaced cable which I have connected via the stock motorola plug?

    Is it true that the aluminium braid shield is difficult to solder onto the board?

    Should I solder/connect directly onto the antenna or leave the motorola plug in place? (I assume this plug+cable has a different impedance than 75Ohm)

    Well I don't have any of the stock antenna cabling at all. I replaced the Motorola socket and stock cabling with all 75ohm gear. It made the difference on my setup anyway. I used 75 ohm micro coax (which I soldered) to go between the unit and the Quad shielded stuff, this way I didn't have to solder any of the RG6 coax connections (see original picture for small section to Belling Lee Connector) to the tiny FM Tuner board.

    I found this by hunting through another thread: http://www.alibri.it/RRMobile/Silab%20USB%20Radio.htm

    Unzip the file and place the "USBRadio.dll" in your /Radiator/Plugins/ directory.

    Set Radiator to use that DLL and off you go .

    I am using WinXP, sorry I cant help.

    My radiator also crashes when using that DLL . Either it crashes or that DLL mutes all windows sounds and never brings them out of mute. Its not shown as MUTE in the Wave/Main mixer.. but all the sound is gone.
