MeeM, did you end up getting USB radio going? I'm trying to work out my first system and am considering the radioshark 2. I've been reading here most days this week (school teacher, holidays :D) and sometimes feel like I'm just getting more and more confused!
Sorry mate, haven't put a USB radio in yet. It is probably the next thing I'm going to add though. (thinking about a transflective screen too because the prices seem more affordable now than one year ago).
I have no idea how the radioshark is but let me know how you go if you get it.
Will do, thanks for the response.
Just a quick update: I was having a problem with sound in my car. When the volume was set to a very low but audible level, if I took a turn or went over a speed bump, one speaker (usually left side but sometimes right) would turn off and then if I took another turn, the speaker would come back on. I pulled out the car PC the other day and discovered that my speaker wires were not properly spliced. I removed the electrical tape around wire joins and rejoined them properly, and voila! problem solved!
Still planning to do the following:
- Install a USB FM radio
- Install a reversing camera
- Make a frame to fill the gaps between my LCD and the fascia
nice install mate, were r u located?
As for the speaker issue, it's best to solder every wire to avoid these issues and sometimes hum or static interference.
Keep it up
Thanks. I'm in Brisbane. Maroon to the bone! :P
Yeah I thought of soldering them. I'll probably do it the next time I get behind the car PC.
How's your HQCT? Is it really worth the price?
Actually, I dont mind the HQCT, I am now going to grab the V1 as my new setup doesnt fit the HQCT -e ..:(
I listen to AM a lot so yeah for me it's sweet, will most likely upgrade to Digital / DAB when something decent is available.
Are the problems with the blutooth dongle/software stack fixed? If so, what did the trick?
Yeah, I uninstalled Centrafuse and reinstalled it and it did the trick :) I've been using my Bluetooth dongle on my desktop system at home so it's not in the car at the moment. But it works :)
