Fairy Radio/Axife FM Player
I'm new here, but not new to the CarPuter idea.. I've been screwing around with this for a while as a side project here at work.. (having built a few Sproggy power supply's to power an old WebSurfer Pro running 98Lite) I had abandoned it for a while, not having a decent platform to develop on but had fired it back up with the release if the Mini-ITX hardware.
I've seen the bullets features of Media Engine and it looks similar to what I've been working on. However the direction I chose for FM support wasn't to go directly to the tuner card, not that it was difficult.. (it was mostly just ugly) I chose to use the engine from FairyRadio (Now re-released as Axife FM Player from www.Axife.com) It works like a TiVo but for FM radio, keeping a buffer of radio that you can easilly record from or scroll back to re-play radio. It uses visualizations from WinAmp.
I don't know if it's useful to you or not but I worked with the author to develop a VB class object to controll the engine.. I just downloaded the Media Engine and will check it out.
**Thanks for doing this in VB, and thanks for releasing the source. **
I'm a pretty decent VB coder when I'm motivated to be, and I'm hopeful to find some time to help further the project.
