Yep, bought radio card on ebay for 20 euro incleuding shipping. Can't
remember which one it was, but it was an isa cad and was one of the ones
openbsd supports. It is essentially an interface to a tuner. It needs a
sound card to capture the sound. It is simply a radio card and not a
radio / tv card (though i do the tv thing too). I wrote a few simple
scripts to rip programs to ogg and threw them into cron / at.
*Make sure you have a good soundcard, i can hear the disk writes as very
quiet noise in my card.
*You won't get any song titles this way. And unless you have some nifty
silence-detecting track splitter you wont get single songs.
*If you have cable-link use this, they rebroadcast a fair number of fm
stations (particularly the bbc ones), signal strength is higher and you
get better audio.
*Forget about long/medium wave.
I don't use it to record much music, but rather speech. Espially plays.
It would be interesting to hook up my scanner and have a much larger
tunable range (i think it might have an pc interface).
