    • our mazda 3 sp25 now comes with dab+  3 years ago it didnt. times are changing .... below is some data with respect dab+ in cars, here is a considerable ramp up. but dont expect it to come in all cars... http://www.digitalradioplus.com.au/dab-in-vehicles with regards reception, i do a quite a bit of driving... melbourne metro to far flung races of victoria... like FM dab+ is really for metro areas. drop out of those and so does the dab+ reception. it still gets pretty far out of town though... and about what the maps suggest. cant talk about other states. dab+ was never ever meant to be a regional solution. parliament was supposed to explore a solution for that ... which has been completely forgotten about ... so if grumbling about reception out of metro areas and areas without dab+ grumble to your government representative... but dont blame them if there are far more pressing things that they are worrying about...     ps am a very early adopter of dab+ infact i had DAB+ in a car... even before it was available in a car... buying a pure DAB+ add on unit with stick on aerial from about day one of dab+ being available... my last car came with dab+ my own current car i just fitted an after market unit with dab+ ... so not beyond the realms of possibility...
    • @Scrut, you have my sympathy and I am sorry I am unable to help.  I have had a number of usb TV tuners over many years and every now and then, stations will disappear and/or change from strong to weak.  Worse still, will find out when scheduled recordings are missed. Will then have to go thru the tedious process of re-scanning the channels.  Usb TV tuners is one class of equipment I wish I had never touched.  Have spent far too much time and effort trying different tuners and software packages, a lot of it troubleshooting.     *** end of rant ***  
    • It's been a long time since I used Windows Media Center with PC digital tuners so I'm hesitant in offering advice, other than saying it's worth trying other software for testing, at least.  I've seen changes in transmitted bit streams over time that are "unexpected" but still compliant, in particular, data-packet length values getting longer, that may have been validated by developers to avoid out of buffer addressing that might occur due to bad reception [E.G. expecting a value of 0-20 but getting 255 during a lightning strike nearby] that would cause an application to terminate.  Receiving data via an antenna is a funny business...  Drivers of hardware may also correct data differently, I know my old AverMedia 771 tuners had a huge driver code base that would return data streams more reliably than other more simpler drivers, for example.  It's a mug's game really, which is why it's harder and harder to find dual tuner devices anymore, I expect.
    • Wow, I suspect they just don't want to do it. My quote for the whole home theatre including walls, ceiling, doors & frames, skirting and dropped bulkhead was $473 for the lot (Wattyl Night Sky matt acrylic)
    • Thank you for the update and interesting how there are wrinkles within the Emotiva range.  I would assume that Nad will be adding Dirac without wrinkles and at its best to the Masters series (their top range). Regarding summing up 2 subs, I used MSO to do this prior to running Anthem Room Correction (ARC).  That was the method recommended by miniDSP prior to running Dirac.
