    How to Embed Radiator TV in Visual Basic?

    Does anyone have any info or examples on how i can make a TV plugin using radiator?

    Dragons plugin is useless and i need to make a new 1 so it's skinnable to embed into frontends so it looks like it's apart of it.

    I'm not asking for code that shows me how to do it (altho id love to have it)

    Id like someone to point me in the right direction for embedding it in Visual Basic

    If anyone can help please do

    I've got all that working without 3rd party dlls i can capture the tv into a divx file or make some screen grabs i just can't change the channel without using the default dialog

    i know what the khz are of the tv channels i need just son't know how to set them manually.

    this is all by using windows directshow crap no 3rd party stuff like fly2000tv so the tv channels is the only problem i have.

    OK, this is C# code but maby you can port it to VB, this example controls all functions of the TV tuner, and it's directX http://www.codeproject.com/cs/media/directxcapture.asp

    I can only tell u to learn C#. You can do so much stuff in C# that was nearly impossible in VB6. I programed in VB for 10 yeas. Now since a few years I do everything in C#, I love it! Take the road to C# via VB.NET if you like (I did)

    Doing stuff with media like audio/video is easy in C#

    Whynot download the beta of Visualstudio 2005 and try it out? http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/

    If you do C#, take a look at this opensource "mediaportal", here you can take some ideas how to do media stuff: http://mediaportal.sourceforge.net/
