View Full Version : DAB Radio

I've got a DAB PCI card in my server and use DabBar to stream digital
radio through my SB. (Works brilliantly BTW)

When I use DabBar to listen to the radio locally on the PC (i.e.
slimserver not involved) the status bar of DabBar scrolls additional
radio station info.

Question: Would there be any way to get this additional radio station
info out of DabBar and pass it to slimserver so that it shows up on the
SB? That would be ultra-cool.

Cheers

Hi Aynsley,

If DabBar passes that information as shoutcast/icecast metadata in the
MP3 stream, the SlimServer should be able to pick it up.
Unfortunately, I'm a little out of transmission range in California to
try to solve this one...

I think you should ask on the dabbar forum, I'm sure it's possible but I've
got no idea how. the dabbar forums is here:
