    Fm tuner

    Ok I got my computer installed - GPS, Xm radio and want my FM radio. I have a hauppauge usb pvr. I got it to work with radiator. My problem is that when I turn off the car the power to the tuner goes off so whe I turn the car back on, the computer tries to find new hardware and it gets all messed up and doesn't work. I dont really want to keep it on all the time( besides the inverter causes alot of noise in the system). Anyone know how to fix this? Is there another USB tuner that uses the port power and not AC or DC?

    Something isn't right if it is looking for drivers every time. If you make sure that the PC shuts down and boots up properly it shouldn't have that issue.

    As for the invertor humm, there is no way around it really. I suggest getting rid of it and putting in the ITPS with a decent DC-DC ps or get an Opus/Carnetix all in one PS.

    Well, it's not quite correctly. I used the 8x8wdmfm dll. In the settings check the open an external application. Than I always have the WinTV radio program running. The radiator and frodo program will control it. Just run it minimized. It wont interfere with the other programs because either one of those mutes the line when not in use. I know it's not the correct way but it works. Let me know how it works for you and if you have anymore questions.

    well thanks for the info, i'll try that... i've also noticed that my WinTV doesn't work after hibernation ( i assume that's what you are talking about). What i found work was close the winTV radio and then restart it. usually that works fine and i have radio again, but every once in a while i have to do a full restart.
