Hi guys,

Not strictly digital TV related, but digital not the less. DAB+ started broadcast in the capital cities in May apparently. They have a little info on http://www.digitalradioplus.com.au/ but certainly no PC related hardware.

I've been doing a bit of hunting via google for a USB DAB+ radio receiver. The only product that could possibly do it (says it's upgradable to DAB+) was the Albrecht (Alan Electronics) - DR 403

Maybe Renura will bring DAB+ to Australia just as he brought DVB-T smile.gif

Ideas?

We are testing a few devices now, but the demand for PC based DAB appear to be very small (not like DVB-T) so not many manufacturers are interested in it.

Nevertheless if we can manage to have a hybrid device that can support both DVB-T and DAB at a reasonable price, then there is a chance. smile.gif

I would love to test the devices too. Keep me informed! Very understandable that there is limited demand... Especially for DAB+ because it looks like Australia seems to be the only bloody broadcaster outside of Europe.

People look at me strange when I say I record TV on my computer. Let alone listen to the radio!

Anyway, I'm an office worker with a radio plugged into the PC so I can get triple J at work. Being able to record/playback etc etc would be so awesome. The stand alone devices in Oz don't look that bad. Just not in a computer smile.gif
