So I've decided I'm going to be purchasing and writing a plugin for a FM radio module of some kind, the only question is what module. HQCT seems to be the prevalent one, above the silabs unit even. Thoughts? I'd like to write for whichever one is more commonly used.
Well, I was thinking about that... but to be honest I'd really like USB audio and there isnt any USB HD radio out yet, since I'm looking to get rid of my headunit entirely and if I get a Directed it would require running the audio through either the computer, or a splitter to go into an amplifier (being as the PC would take up the inputs)
Edit: And I hear rumor that they are discontinuing that radio?
I have HQCT and a Directed HD radio...much happier with the Directed unit
Yeah that seems to be the going trend heh, perhaps I should just give in and finally buy one myself for this.
Well it's settled, I'm going to be getting a Directed HD Radio, and Mitch's serial cable to match. I should be getting it mid-this coming week so I will start development on it.
Ha yes! My 2 word post made someone change their mind!
Anyway, there's a DLL out there somewhere that Mitch uses to control the radio. You could ask him for it, it comes with a help manual. If not, the protocol is available elsewhere.
Alright I got my HD Radio, it's actually a Visteon but it'll work. I've played with it a bit, and I got it to turn on and change channel, so progress .
