    ...While you have the DLL source and your updating your plugin could you please have a look and see if there is a way resolving this problem I have with the unit not working ?

    I'm pretty sure its the DLL and nothing else.

    For Guino: USB Radio FM with RDS from Silabs

    If you can resolve it I'll be able to use your plugin

    Thanks

    PS - I've bought two for the same reasons

    I just tried the siLABS RADIO PLUGIN, RDS text and station name is really improved. While I was at radio menu, switched to music, started to play a song then I realized both radio and music playing together. And then again returned to radio menu, selected a preset, I've got this error:

    Can you tell me how you integrated the radio skin into your skin. What skin are you using? I like to test this.

    Just tested with BMV2 skin. Copied your radio skin into BMV2 skin, changed the radio button code from radio to iceradio. Using RR version 11/04/2007.
    I tried with radio mode = 7 in RR.ini. Anything else you need?

    The motivation for this postings and work was because you are annoyed by the usual 10MemoryPresets-tuningupanddown-serachingupanddown-crap which is now copied in all radio implementations ?
    and yes: its crap !

Decided to make an extension plugin for Road Runner because I was missing my NEWS and TRAFFIC functionality with this tuner. I'm listening to MP3's most of the time but I like to be interrupted by NEWS broadcasts and TRAFFIC announcements.

    I made the plugin as modular as possible. This means I can easily make the plugin work with other tuner hardware as well. Or I can switch out the plugin module by an application (I use this for testing)
    Did you searched before and read my thread ?
    If yes why didn't you ask how to implement this in VB6 ?

    and yes I also have a testing app...

    • FM
    • Station presets
      • For FM currently 30 station presets can be stored. These stations are divided in block of ten stations (1-10) that can be switched to using the radio_band command.
    • AF
      • Manual – When the signal strength is getting poor you can use the the AF indicator the manually switch to a alternate frequency of the selected station using the AF list.
      • Automatic (not available yet) – When the signal is getting below a predefined signal level this function will automatically try to switch to a stronger alternate frequency.

    • may be someone can modify the firmware for a quick (autonomous) AF check ?
      (yes I also have a Silabs and ADS Radio)

    • News
      • In the event of a news broadcast where the station switches the PTY to NEWS and when enabled in the plugin, Road Runner will pause playing any media and the volume will be set to a predefined value and the tuner will be unmute for the duration of the news broadcast. After that RR will resume playing media.
    • Traffic
      • In the event of a traffic announcement (TA) and when enabled in the plugin, Road Runner will pause playing any media and the volume will be set to a predefined value and the tuner will be unmute for the duration of the traffic announcement. After that RR will resume playing media.
    • EON
      • Not fully implemented in this version.
    • TMC
      • Not implemented in this version.
    • All functions and information available using commands, labels and indicators from Road Runner
    • Multiple tunerhardware support (as of now only siLABS. HQCT will follow soon)

    Any comments, request are more than welcome....
    Are you interested to work together ?
    The problem is: I don't use (and I won't use) Roadrunner (NO: it's not bad!).
    I am using Centrafuse amd others are using ... (others Frontends) (any yes we need more developers to join)
    So different developers are using different languages which results in the need of interoperation - therefore I choose .NET.
    I also removed the COM interop because it resulted in a lot of registry trouble. (using 2 different COM-dll's with the same interface after each other)
    (But using .NET interop from COM is as easy as before registering as COM from .NET)
    If you don't agree I am happy to read you proposals.

    My components so far:
    - HQCT driver (Tuner logic +HAL logic )
    - TMCGPS-mouse driver (what ?? ask! )
    - Radiator driver (with very quiet RDS certainly )
    - RDS interpreter (with EON and currently working on )
    - a replacement for this RDS interpreter (same interface certainly) which does feed its RDS data together with NMEA data from one COM Port to another

    Now I will have a look at your COM (?)stuff...

    I don't need the ini setting. Replace the 7 with a 0! I think Road Runner is trying to use the SiLABS tuner at the same time.

    The reason for doing this is because a couple of tuner related functions I believe should not be in a the modHAL. (Like presets)

    may be someone can modify the firmware for a quick (autonomous) AF check ?
    (yes I also have a Silabs and ADS Radio)
    That would be great indeed. Tuning to another station using the siLABs take a lot of time.

    I have troubles implementing silent AF updates using the HQCT as well.

    If your looking at the firmware may be you could have a look at the problem I mentioned... I'm almost into beg mode as there is nothing more I can do and I really want to use the advanced features of this dongle...

    ???
