    You can probably get something like DVBViewer or some other DVB/DAB tuner software and embed it if you want to use it.

    rightio... It definitely picks up fm radio, has great reception aswell..... guess ill have to deal with it...
    but how hard is it to make a plugin because FM radio is a big part of my car-pc... surely someone has come accross this issue

    since you like in AUS, its not the same as me in USA

    if you wan the old Analog FM radio, you have plenty of options for RR

    ok, there is the Silabs USB dongle, in the states here is $35 usd
    but that seems hard to get now

    you could use the HD Radio, its a great AM/FM tuner, its made for usa
    but it does work down under, i have sold a few cables down there...

    other than that, its damm dry
    -Thanks

    There are a few people working on getting a plugin working for the Realtek device you have. Currently working on getting it integrated into CF, RR, FreeICE, and a few other front ends, the thread is here:

    I have one of the US HD Radio's, which does have AM/FM, and is supported out of the box in Centrafuse, and I think also in RideRunner if you want.

    I don't use it anymore as I have the Realtek DAB radio, which you also have.

    However, if you want to grab my HD Radio module, I can fire it off to you for $50AUD plus postage (Coming from Perth, but I can put it in an express post satchel for $12) including Mitchjs's awesome serial control cable.

    Unit works fine, I just don't use it anymore as I have my DAB+.

    Hey might be interested in buying this off you... What does this HD radio module look like?
    And how sure are you that it will work in riderunner?
    I bought centrafuse but got the ****s with it...
    I Finally found a decent professional looking skin for riderunner with elite, so don't really want to change now...

    Sucks that I cant get Digital radio in cairns yet... makes it all so much more difficult so yea, keen for a solution....

    Thanks Heaps,
    Tom
