There is driver for SF16FMR radio card. This time, driver implements basic setting of frequency and volume. Driver doesn't supports auto-tuning. If you know, how I can get signal level, please write me about that. For bug reports etc., please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As described above, I have no information how do auto-tuning. Insteed, the driver will state 'tuned' on every tenth of MHz. For example, auto-tuning will stop at 100.0, 100.1, 100.2, 100.3 etc., but not at 100.34 or 101.68. If You have info about auto-tunning on this card, please use email above.
First time, edit Makefile (comment appropriate 'VER=' line according your kernel version)
Driver can be compiled by typing 'make'. Then copy resulting module (radio-sf16fmr.o) into appropriate place (usually under /lib/modules/...../misc). Then do:
You can test driver using programs such as gradio or gtuner (or wmtune, of course).
This time this driver is a hack based on sf16-fmi driver and user-space program by Kevin Boone. Thanks, Kevin! I hope, that one day will be in linux kernel sources.
Kevin's original program is at http://www.kzone.eu.org/download_linux_1.html.
- radio-sf16fmr.c is for linux 2.2.X
- radio-sf16fmr-2_3.c for linux 2.3.X.
- radio-sf16fmr_2.4.3.c for linux 2.4.3+
- radio-sf16fmr_2.4.5.c for linux 2.4.5+
Your kernel needs support for video4linux.
If this code works (or not) for You, please let me know. If I will have
enough reports, I can add this code into official kernel. Thanks.
Use this code for any purpose you want, but don't make it closed-source.
