    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.
    I am the bad guy in the HQCT threads telling a lot of "uncomfortable" stuff noone wants to hear - so I can tell you that its not possible (with the curent HQCT firmware).... and its not easy to flash it because it doesn't have an USB Bootloader
    (IMHO)

    but the Si4701 has a USB bootloader and documented Firmware (!)...

    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...
    this needs time and I don't have time at the moment for this... (sorry I only have one (small) brain and 2 hands)
    If (most of) the developers out there would not reinvent the wheel again and again they would easily have time for it (we all could have TMC, EON, "smartreceiving" with the help of a shared database, and much much more)

    I can wait if you can look at it at some point..... so far no ones responded to my comments at all..

    Re shared code etc.... can sourceforge not help here ? Or even ( mods take note ) an MP3Car Equiv. ?

    PS : In fact thats such a good idea I'll mail the mods...

    Hello

    I have done all steps of the description, but in step 5 (see below) I had some problems. How should it look like?

    5. Make sure you have in your skin in the menu.skin the following line
    X,RR_ICERADIO

    Thank you for your support.

    Tried this today on my 500Mhz tablet and CPU spiked to 100% as soon as menu.skin loaded. Never came back down. So couldn't get to iceradio.skin.

    Could you send me your debug.txt and the menu.skin you have.
    Did you get a success when registering the dll? Did you replace the USBRadio.dll with the one in the zip file?

    shared code is not the problem... if someone joins I will put my source back on the net...

    shared database for "smartreceiving" ( (c) by FMode ) means the radio (NOT the silabs, ANY radio) is recording his fieldstrength and GPS coordinates into a database - next time you are driving the same route it will switch sooner to the new stronger (AF) frequency. The frontend thinks there was an AF switch by the radio (means the frontend does not need to be adapted for this - and this is the point !). The radio(driver) thinks it is switched by the Frontend.
    That is only one powerful idea to realize...


    Here is a list for people you can ask to modify the Firmware:
    (4x HQCT tuner implementation, RDS interpretation)
    datalex
    putput
    datalex for centrafuse
    mischka76
    furious
    "in roadrunner" (who has done it?)

    (ADS/Silabs tuner implementation, RDS interpretation)
    dridders
    furious
    RRMobile ?
    "in roadrunner" (who has done it?)

    then there are implementations for the Cinergy 600RDS and for Andre's radio.

    these are only the ones I find quickly but I bet (and I know) there are more.

    So finally we have 10 people interpreting the RDS - looking for RDS Group 3A taking bits x-to-y, looking into a table with chars.
    While 1 (complete) implementation would be enough for all - resulsting in a lot of spare for all of them.
    How to identify "complete" ? Easy ! I exposed all RDS attributes (Decoder identification , MS switch, ... which are part of the CENELEC standard) to my interface - there are not more !
    If you think "Decoder identification" is useless to display then don't display it.
    "But in Lichtenstein we have RDS pagingservice still in use and I want to display it in my Frontend !" Thats the reason why I am moving the raw RDS stream into the Frontends for their availabilty.

    "I want to have USN and WAM to the fieldstrength from my HQCT - so your components are useless for me" - wrong ! USN and WAM from the HQCT (which is not offered by the Silabs) are offered per "late binding"

    Code:
    Sub AnyEvent(byref AnyObject as Object)
    If Radio.Type="HQCT driver" then
       Dim HQCTsuperspecial as stHQCTsuperspecial
       Rem Cast Object (pointer to void) to HQCTstructure
       HQCTsuperspecial=CType(AnyObject, stHQCTsuperspecial)
       Print "WAM:" + HQCTsuperspecial.WAM
       Print "USN:" + HQCTsuperspecial.USN
    End If
    ...
    End Sub

    Hi, I am still experiencing high CPU problem as reported here:

    Silabs USB Radio bugs thread

    I guess Guino doesn't own a Silabs radio to be able to troubleshoot the problem. Are you able to help?

    Is there any update on using a different path than the C:\Progra..... Mine is on my D drive and I'd like to give this a try.

    Thanks.

    I got a question.

    silabs lags by like 2 seconds (went to the drive in )
    is there anyway to fix it with the dll or is the radio just slow???

    thanks if you got any info.
