HD Radio support in linux/nGhost?
Anyone interested in getting HD radio working under linux?
I'm currently working on a perl script (not finished) that can be used to contol a Viseon HDZ300 or the Direction equivalent box. Both of these can be picked up cheap on ebay at the moment. Mitchjs has created RS232 cables (see: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/road...light=HD+radio) that can be used to control the boxes and has a front-end component that runs on .Net, but I'm running LinuxICE on my early not-yet-ready system, so I want to see if I can do it with something a little less heavy-weight (i.e. not Mono).
I'm looking for someone to create a UI piece that can either call the perl script or use the perl as a starting point. It would be ideal if we could integrate it into nGhost, since that's what I'm planning to run on the carpc.
Anyone have the expertise and/or motivation to make it work?
UPDATE: Nearly there - HalNineThousand has been hard at work to code up a C++ control library - I've been testing it and it's working well. There's a few glitches to iron out, and some decisions to make about APIs and format, but it will be ready soon! I'll be adding an announcement when we've got something people can try out on their own.
