    Radio Shark Two does not appear to work. The patch will not work...file mismatch. It would be nice to get it working. Does anyone have the information on the patch and what it would take to build a patch for RS2?

    Eh... who needs a radio tuner on their PC when one is already built in into the car's stereo... Whoever rips out their headunit is doing things the hardway anyway. hehe

    I actually agree with you. I ripped out the head unit for a couple of reasons though....first, the stock stereo did not have an auxilary in and there is no aux adapter for it. Second, I really wanted to see if a head unit could be completely replaced by a car pc. The radio is the only element I am lacking but to be honest, I never listened to it in the first place with Sirius in the car. It's still all fun.

    Any chance someone could code a seek scan and autotune function for the radioshark. I sure would be nice if you could press one button (like a head unit) and have it set all the stations it can recieve in the presets. I haven't seen these options yet, but I just started playing wih it this am. I just don't have the knowledge or ability yet.
    There also doesn't seem to be a way to switch from FM to AM, no direct entry of frequencies and it doesn't recognize presets. I just seems like a beta version of the skin. Is this correct or is there possibly something wrong with my instal?
    I'm using the latest RR and lsx void.

    *edit* I'm figuring some out on my own here. I see a few things I hadn't before. I should have given myself more time before posting. However, the tune button brings up the OSK, but it will not accept entries., The numers do not even show up when keyed. I see that I can change the tuning options by setting preferences in Radioshark itself. Still haven't figured out the am/fm switching. Presets are now recognized but it still would be nice to have an automatic tune for presets instead of having to scroll through the frequencies one at a time. Maybe have two or three menu's for stored frequencies in FM so when you travel you can switch menus to the new area. Like FM1, FM2, etc. I may be asking too much here, I'm just not familar with how to code it or even if its possible.
    Otherwise skin seems good enough and radioshark works OK out of the box. Can't wait to hack in my car antenna and see how it works!

    Here is a communication with the project manager for Radio Shark 2 and he provided some information that may help. Let me know if anyone can use it.
    ------------

    There is no SDK per se, but I have attached a text file that should be helpful: since the HID (in the USB stack) nature of the device should already provide the report format, this file details the tuning details. The SHARK 2 firmware obviates the need for OS level drivers.

    Attached File
    --------------

    bcdDevice = 0x0010
    ------------------

    - Write USB packet size: 7 bytes
    - byte 0: radioshark command

    - Read USB packet size: 3 bytes
    - byte 0-2: tea5777 data

    - radioshark commands: (MSBit is used as a data ready flag and stripped inside the Micronas immediately)
    - 0x81: write tea5777 data
    - byte 1-6: tea5777 data

    - 0x82: read tea5777 data (follow this with a USB read)

    - 0x83: blue LED (PWM)
    - byte 1: 0x00-0x80 = off to full on

    - 0x84: red LED
    - byte 1: 0x01 = on, 0x00 = off

    - 0x85: DSP command

    - 0x86: Retrieve CAllign value

    - 0x87: Store CAllign value



    Packet to sent from PC
    ----------------------

    FM tuning (if desired frequency = 107.5MHz then (m_FMFreq == 1075)):

    memset(reportBuffer, 0, sizeof(reportBuffer));
    reportBuffer[1] = 0x81;

    temp = int((m_FMfreq - 1.5) * 2);
    reportBuffer[2] = temp / 0xFF;
    reportBuffer[3] = temp & 0xFF;
    reportBuffer[4] = 0x33;
    reportBuffer[5] = 0x04;
    reportBuffer[6] = 0x00;
    reportBuffer[7] = 0x28;


    AM tuning (if desired frequency = 1510 KHz then (m_AMfreq == 1510)):

    memset(reportBuffer, 0, sizeof(reportBuffer));
    reportBuffer[1] = 0x81;

    temp = m_AMfreq - 21;
    temp = temp >> 6;
    temp = temp | 0x40; // or the AM bit
    reportBuffer[2] = temp;
    temp = m_AMfreq - 21;
    temp = temp << 2;
    reportBuffer[3] = (UCHAR)temp;
    reportBuffer[4] = 0xF3;
    reportBuffer[5] = 0x36;
    reportBuffer[6] = 0x00;
    reportBuffer[7] = 0x24;

    The AM/FM Button isn't working for me. I am using the latest version from 11/2006 and it will only allow me to be on either am or fm. To switch I must close RoadRunner, open the radioshark software, make the change, close radioshark, and then reopen roadrunner and the change will be in effect.

    I solved the issue with the RadioShark. If anyone else is having the same problem you need to install the lastest version from Griffin's Website and then apply the patch from this thread.
