    I have playing with Silabs two days now and with RR's USBRadio.dll I have this problem when I go to audio and back to radio, audio stops working and I need to restart RR. I test Pete's "Beezer" USBRadio.dlls and with USBRadio Experimental DualTunerDS 0.8 dll without filter thing, I get it to work.
    So, my question is. Does this new Silabs plugin which is coming in new RR relese working ok, if not can I still use Pete's dll?

    I was surprised how well Silabs working except default antenna wire which is a joke, looks like it's just guide wire where real antenna shoud be solder. I'm still waiting antenna adapter wire which I going to solder to Silabs so I can connect it to car antenna. I don't want to cut and demolish original antenna wire.

    and how the hell are you managing audio?
    I use Silabs with RideRunner (version 07/09) default dll.

    But with this library audio is only in the front channel and RDS functions are limited.


    I hope there are improvements in the 08/09 version. In will do some test in the next days.

    u can switch to another usbradio.dll, if u want to use the direct show one

    no plans at this time for more RDS, prob only a TA ONevent
    i dont think the RDS fucntions are limited at all!!
