    I don't really care so much for RDS in this implmentation of my carputer. I am just looking for the tunes man!

    Also, i did not understand that BerliOS link... All the pages are empty?

    I have tested this reciever and am very impressed with the results.

    Currently, I am trying to source a means to make an adapter to go from the connection on the USB key to a Female motorola end.

    While soldering would work for some, it's not a viable solution by and large.

    The retractable antenna on this thing is a bit of a dissapointment. It's incredibly flemsy and low quality. However, if we can by pass it completely and plug directly into the car antenna via a female motorola adapter we should be set.

    froal - I can't take a pic right now and post it, but I can tell you it's a complete POS and really wouldn't work in the car. It's a retractable antenna that's really thin and flexable. It's retractable like those things that you would connect a card to that you would swipe to get into a building or an id card...hope that makes sense.

    polo - I'm just waiting for one of our developers to get my a plug-in that they have written so I can test it before we release it. We want to make sure that this is nearly flawless before we release anything.

    Interesting. These ADS units are selling at staples.ca in Canada for C$39.86 + tax but with a C$10 rebate. I've just ordered one.

    I wonder if I can find a Linux driver. The fact that it is based on a reference design gives some hope.

    This is from another thread in the Hardware development forum... USB FM RDS Solution with sofware

I used to use the magic box pro for FM, but the performance (even though it was the best I had found at that point) is absolutely no match to the quality and signal strength of this tiny little radio! And to make things even better it supports RDS.

    Here is the antenna mod I did...

    Here it is running a full 75 ohm system and splitter to both the silabs and the DVBT tuner part of the magic box pro



    The only issue I have found is that the RDS info is all jumbled up, or it doesn't refresh at the rate it comes in at. I downloaded the demo from this thread, and all I get it chopped up sentences, it seems that the data coming in is scrolling, but the app can't refresh at the same rate as the scrolling....



    Any ideas on this?

    Other than that I have got this functioning in my car, all but the rds..



    I'm using the vb6 example from a thread I can't find now, but thanks to whoever it was

    Is there any further movement with this, or did this fall to the BoomzBox? I got tired of waiting on that thing and bought the ADS module, I love it but would like built in tuner support from my front end, so far as I can tell only RR has any support for this
