Can anyone suggest a good FM reciver to use with RR? All the ones I have found are TV/RADIO combos. I can't use an internal PCI one as the case I use doesn't allow one, and USB TVs are rubbish from what I have seen. All I want is a simple USB radio tuner, even if it has to plug into the line-in!
Just wondering what you guys all use?
I'm currently using the D-Link DRU 100 wired into my stock aerial.
It's OK but it's not amazing.

The griffin radioshark is also OK but not amazing. Forget about am but fm comes in, and is listen-able. It seems to be constantly adjusting itself, if it gets fuzzy the software reacts and cleans it up, but it happens quite often so its a bit annoying.
the d-link is fm only.... I have the hauppauge which is tv/fm and I found tv to be actually useable on some channels in the city in movement! WOW...
In Europe, I recommend the Cinergy 600.. just finished integrading "direct" support for it including RDS.. Should work well for both TV and Radio.. For elsewhere, it's hard to tell.. Now USB is a hard solution .. there not many good options.. I'll be implementing direct support for the WinTV cards (which supposedly should work with the USB versions).. but I only have the PCI version to try with -- hopefully I'll be working on this later today.
OOOOOhhhhh Goodie... I'm looking forward to playing with this. It'll be nice to have it directly supported.... You are talking the Hauppauge WinTV correct... like the WinTV GO-TVFM???Originally Posted by guino
Good, RDS support it's ok
Only one small problem to PCI card solution:little space to adapt in "carputer solution" the PCI card with the EPIA MB.
Yes, exist the PCI adapter posted above, but my carputer and systematized all in a small space
However good thing to implement the RDS in the Cinergy with RR!
EDIT:have see my PM for you ?
@mauri: haven't got anything..
Here's a prototype for the WinTV... This is just a control application I'll make RR control... I'd like users of WinTVFM (PCI and USB) to report how it works on their system...
You may have to register the OCX file using:
The speed of seek/tuning is limited by the Crappy OCX that doesn't seem to ever disable the VIDEO controls while using the radio.
Let me know..
I'm going to test this out right now...
Just a question though, could you consider when you do the TV part, possibly adding a screen for rear-view camera? Basically this screen would be a TV feed on a specific channel (configurable) since the wintv treats the video input as a channel configurable through the interface, and this way we can have a screen that is quicker loading than normal TV, and can be quickly switched to without stopping music or anything...
