    Where did you order it from? From the US or here in AUS? You can get them from Braemac who has offices in the capital cities for $60 delivered IIRC.

    as I wrote - i cant find any updates on silabs homepage - I mean there are no software drivers that I can download since windows installs its own drivers the moment I plug in the device in my hub. I am using xp home with the latest updates...
    Is there a way to maybe update the firmware of my silabs dongle that is not listed on silabs.com/usbradio

    I ordered via mouser. After I emailed them back about the $55US shipping fee they realised it was a mistake in there ordering process, apologised and reversed $42 of it back to my credit card. Which makes total cost $48US which = $54AUD. It arrived in good time.

    I did do a quick search for it in aus but gave up fast.

    I also didnt receive any software CD with mine. I am assuming its available on the net somewhere.

    There never was a consensus. 26 pages, and some people love 'em, some people don't. I personally think it works great, and sounds every bit as clear as my factory radio did. Now, if I can just get Roadrunner worked out, so that it will play through more than just the front speakers...

    So you're using one with RR and the only major issue you have is the speaker output? How's the RDS?

    I personally have it working well in my system, unfortunately the development of the dll stopped short of completion. RDS text is mostly garbage. I wish the original developer could get with the ice_radio.dll developer and figure out the fix for RDS text, then this would be a great plugin.
