I can't code either, though I did find the GPIO switch demo on Youtube and drivers for various USB sound cards so that is part of the way there. If I can tell the Rpi to flash LEDs I can change the code to tell it to shift frequency, turn sound on and off in the system mixer. I had a thought about using something along the lines of an old atari control paddle for that, though that'd require more than i know.bonelifer wrote:After looking around my thoughts were to just use the RPi to control the radio via a website(php) interface. I found a I2C FM module on EBay: LINK HERE That seller also has many different prebuilt amplifiers that could be used. You could use a Y cable to connect the FM module and a usb sound card(to use something like mpd for online radio sources). For a couple dollars more you could get this SiliconLabs based module that also supports "detecting and processing both Radio Data Service (RDS) and Radio Broadcast Data Service (RBDS) information. The Si4703 even does a very good job of filtering and carrier detection. It also enables data such as the station ID and song name to be displayed to the user." at LINK HERE Then you could display the RDS/RBDS/Station FREQ info or internet info on a lcd.
Unfortunately I couldn't code my way out of a box.
I could but that takes most of the fun out of itbonelifer wrote:Not sure what level of hardware hackery you are capable of but you could use a usb keypad(similarly to what they describe here):
