DigiRadio is a small application that allows the ASUS Digimatrix FM Radio to be tuned to FM and AM Frequencies from myHTPC, the command line or a windows shortcut. The application may be run multiple times, but only one instance will run, performing radio tuning.
Update: 18-May-04 New Version (1.1). If launched from within myHTPC, DigiRadio will remain invisible and will not change the focus away from myHTPC. This permits navigation to continue in myHTPC using a remote control (not previously possible without a mouse click). Also fixes minor problem when calling with the 'EXIT' parameter when not already running.
Update: 20-May-04 New Version (1.2) Adds support for an On
Screen Display (OSD) using Samurize (www.samurize.com)
or any other tool or program that can read a text file. Whenever a frequency selection is
made, the text file digiradiostatus.txt will be created in the same folder as
digiradio.exe. For details, see tech stuff below!
DigiRadio is freeware. I have
tested it only on my own Digimatrix. No warranty, support or liability
Tech Stuff (Also Included in Readme.txt file in download)
DigiRadio takes a single command line parameter, specifying the
frequency to tune to. Once launched it will tune to that frequency and start playing.
On Screen Display (OSD)
Whenever a new frequency is selected the file
digiradiostatus.txt will be updated. The file is located in the same folder as
digiradio.exe. The file will contain the following, line by line.
Samurize can use this file to display the information on screen (over any other applications, including myHTPC in almost any format or font you can imagine!
After the freqency identifier, the remainder of the line is considered the station descriptor. An example of digiradiostations.txt is included in this zip file. Also included is a sample Samurize config file digiradio.ini (see www.samurize.com for details of the free utility to use this - it's awesome!)
