(I searched for this, but of course the silly search feature kindly informs me that "FM" is too short or too common to be used, bah!)

Since the squeezebox doesn't have a built-in FM tuner (a shame, if you ask me), I'm wondering if anyone has figured out how to integrate a radio tuner-card on the computer running SlimServer and stream that to the squeezebox device, such that one could select the radio station, etc, all from the squeezebox remote.

For what it's worth: I think that there are very tempting reasons why one
might want to pick music from the air BUT ... I tried it for a while with
DABBar, and while it works in some fashion (channel switching is painfully
slow - a problem you may have less of using FM (less buffering)), there is one
inescapable limitation: you only have ONE tuner. And your family will
invariably want to listen to different stations on their SBs...

Internet streaming, while generally of poorer quality, is FAR easier.

An SB with an FM tuner would probably generate an additional 10% import duty
in Europe and Australia...food for thought.
