    Any WDM compatible Camera/TV tuner should work (most newer devices). For Radio, I'm adding support for D-Link and Radiator, so any radio card that works with radiator should work.

    EDIT: I have an ATI All in wonder plugged into Line in and the DLink plugged into the Mic.. both work great..

    Guino, which ATI All-In-Wonder are you using for FM with Radiator? Is it a 9600 or above? If so, I'm in luck!

    The ATI is only for TV.. There are no ATI's with radio that I am aware of....I like the ATI for the reason that when you turn it off in the PC, it cuts out the Audio output -- which would allow for using it in THE SAME audio input with a Radio device that does the same (i.e DLink Radio). You can most definitely use any other Radiator supported card -- Now, if it will work using the same audio input, that depends on your FM Tuner.

    Well, according to the ATI page, my manual, and looking at the device, it has FM

    ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 Pro and XT

    Well, if that's the case, if it supports the FM WDM interface you may want to try it in Radiator with this External DLL driver: 8x8wdmfm.dll (It's made for other cards, but it basically just controls radio using the WDM interface (no port access).

    I just bought the Hauppaug WinTV-GO-FM which is a TV/FM receiver combination. It is PCI not USB, but in my configuration I should be OK... It uses the 878 chipset which Radiator seems to unilaterally support. I'll be trying it tonight or tomorrow, so I'll post successes... I have been asking about this for the last week, but it seems your thread is getting noticed better than mine did.

    Heres hoping

    I finally got my AverMedia AverTV Cardbus Plus today -- it's a PCMCIA tv/radio card. TV and radio can both be controlled through the Winamp tv plugin. Somehow I am not yet getting any sound when using the plugin, though. Any idea what could be wrong, Guino? It may well be my inexperience with the winamp plugin settings and/or DirectAudio. The card itself performs great with the bundled software and makes a cool gadget for Epia MII owners with a free PCMCIA slot.

    I'd just double check your windows mixer settings -- that is, the audio input line you use.. There's a whole audio tab in the plugin where you should be able to set this up.. You should probably just try this stuff on winamp and make suer it works there before trying it in RR. I'd also set the TV input line (in RRConfig) to Disable while testing.. then if it works you can re-enable it (if needed).
