    FM transmitor options for Sirius radio

    Hey guys. Does anyone have any solutions for getting FM radio in the car with a PC installed. Im getting rid of my HU and need FM in order for my Sirius transmittor to work. I saw the post on how to get Sirius with a special unit that can be purchased but would rathe just use the transmittor I already have. I see my only option as getting a TV-Tuner with FM and see that as overkill as I wont need TV in the car. I did a little Googling and found the below dedicated FM Tuner. But by the looks of the site and the low price of the unit, im a bit skeptical on the quality. Any input is greatly apprciated.

    That's a horrible idea.
    For one, the FM receivers for PC have generally poor quality receoption and sound quality.
    For two, the FP modulator for Sirius will reduce sound qality even further.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    get the sirius package with mitch's usb board, and you will be eternally happy. Except for the $13 a month out of your pocket.

    I am getting used to paying my $13 a month. It is a welcome tradeoff from the crap that is AM/FM radio around here. I have refused to listen to the radio since June 2002, unless being driven somewhere in someone else's car. That is what the CarPC was for. Now I have Sirius too, I don't think it can be much geekier.
