    Radiator compatible plugin

    I've had a few requests for this, so I decided to just put the dll here so people don't have to wait for my slow butt to reply.

    I know some people are interested, but I still haven't gotten around to testing it in my truck. I hope there's no after me over it. I hope to get it tested this weekend, but who knows.

    I've also had a request for my source, I don't really mind giving it out, but I want to make some more internal changes before I declare this plugin fully workable for in-car use. Mainly I want to change it to use direct sound. Hopefully that will reduce the requirement that I bump the process priority to above normal while the plugin is in use. I found that under some medium CPU loads the method SiLabs uses to play the audio (waveIn and waveOut) is prone to skipping.

    At any rate, all I've done is a little restructuring of the code SiLabs handed us at this point, so my changes are of minimal real value (I did manage to decouple the GUI from the radio - by tossing the gui and then getting the radio working )

    Actually, I used WickersWammie's DLL file and got it to work streetdeck no problem.... well not much problem. (just throw the DLL in your my document/streetdeck/plugins/radio)

    No RDS in streetdeck, as expected. But the problem comes in that, you have to press the preset on the radio twice to get it to work. The first time you press the LED on the USB radio goes green and no sound. The second time, it does its alternating red and green and works great. After that you can change the channel no prob. However, if you go "SEEK" it will seek another station, but, wont tell you what channel it is in streetdeck. It just stays on the last one you were at. Wow, does it ever slow down when you have it running though. I think you could probably fix that with the direct sound thing you said you are doing.

    The last thing was switching from the radio back to your mp3 music in street deck. Somehow the volume to the music module gets muted, you have to go into the volume control module and just tap the radio bar... and its all back to normal.

    Damn I need to try this in the car .

    Thanks for the DLL Wickerswammie!

    Sounds good, almost like with a few tweaks (by someone MUCH more clevera than me clearly) that this would work well with SD

    DLL issue using Street deck.

    Try it using just radiator. I had an issue with radiator on my system where it would start muted, so I had to do some funky stuff in the DLL to take that into account. Maybe SD was doing that work already so it forced it to not work?

    I'm using RR on mine and I don't have any issues with the version I'm running (the one I've handed around) (on my home PC).

    If it works good in Radiator without SD for you guys, I'll make another version that will not do all the fancyness I added, which will probably work right away with SD.

    I don't have a copy of SD, so I can't test using it.

    Test it using just Radiator

    Let me know the behavior and if it seems to work fine that way then I'm pretty sure I know what's going on.

    thanks for the offer, im running streetdeck europe beta at the moment and it doesnt support plugings so cant trial it, but as soon as the full release is out i will take you up on your offer of re-working the .dll for me!

    So I bought this because I wanted to get TV Tuner. The FM software that it came with works fine. Anyone have any idea how I would get it to work with streetdeck. I couldn't find any .dll for the radio to put in the radio plugin folder. Any Ideas
