Hello and My first feature request! ADS Instant FM Music RDX-155
It is a pleasure to be joining this forum, and to have invested in such a great product that is supported like no other i have seen!
As my first action of contribution and request, I would like to help add support for the ADS Instant FM music USB FM Radio. Model RDX-155
It actually appears that partial support may already be there... After setting the options for radio to faker mode and to setting up my sound card, etc i am able to access the tuning controls.
I am happy to provide support and assistance in any way possible.
How should we start?
Connect it to your laptop and see if it's any good in a car.

It appears all that needs to be done is to passs the wav audio from the usb tuner to the sound card.
Also, i noticed that my wav output somehoe gets muted by streetdeck when attempting to use the radio function.
2 People have sent PM's, so it seems like this feature is desired by more people than just me.
What is your input God of CPU?
Yea.. I have noticed that the instant I try to use the radio Streedeck instally reduces the input line to Zero.. Not very useful!
I would like to try that radio out with streetdeck since it has and external antenna input
Please help us God_of_CPU!
I would be happy to preform this test today and report back tonight or tomorrow!
It is very nice to meet you!
Thanks for the reply!

Here's the tech specs on the Si470x FM tuner component:
SiLabs sells this direct for $35. If this is something that works well in SD and MP3Car wanted to sell them, (there is no point in paying the extra $20-30 for shrinkwrap and the ADS "Value Add" software since tuning would be from within SD) I'm sure they would be cheaper in bulk. It also supports both US RBDS and Euro RDS data decoding standards.

I did the drive test and am happy to report that there was no problems when driving at high speed. I tested using both the incuded retractable antenna and my car antenna. Both results were very similar and my 3 stations were loud and clear.
Please let me know how i can be of assistance in further development!
