    We've thought quite a lot about adding radios and tv tuner / capture cards. The problem is there are so many different chipsets / drivers to deal with, and everyone has a different one or would like some obscure feature of company x's software implemented.

    In retrospect I think the best direction to move with this would be to narrow down the two or three most popular of each device that people are requesting support for, and go that direction. Also, free hardware samples can go a long way towards getting a device supported. We don't see much along the lines of donations, so most of the hardware support we implement is funded from our beer money. :-( Did I mention how much I love good beer?

    That might be a good thing, we'll look into it. Too bad it doesn't support any AM capable tuners.

    It supports the Radioman... which is AM/FM but the software radiator just doesn't have a button to switch to AM

    You'd be suprised at how many requests we've had for a supported AM tuner. Personally I'd like AM so I can listen to Cardinal's baseball on the local talk radio (it's not broadcast on any FM stations). Pretty sad how we've got XM support and hundreds of channels of supposed digital audio broadcasts, and I'd rather listen to Mike Shannon get intoxicated in static-plagued mono over the course of 9 innings.
