    AMMS capture://radio not working on S60 3rd FP1

    I am trying to write a simple midlet to invoke features in the JSR234 spec to allow me to control the radio. From reading the Nokia documentation on the 5700 express music and the N95 phones this should be possible, since both support JSR234.

    My simple midlet works on the S60 emulator, but when I try to run it on the actual 5700 or N95 device it throws a media exception, "Unable to create Player with locator: capture://radio".


    Here is the line that is obviously causing the exception to be raised...
    radioPlayer = Manager.createPlayer("capture://radio");


    System.getProperty("microedition.amms.version") returns "1.0" and not "1.1" as expected with JSR234.
    Also System.getProperty("supports.mediacapabilities") ONLY returns "music audio3d".
    It is my understanding that I should be seeing "tuner" listed under the mediamediacapabilities.

    I have ensured that both of these phones are running the latest firmware using the Nokia upgrade firmware tool.

    Has anyone ever been able to use a midlet to control the built in radios?

    Is it not your understanding that the JSR234 AMMS spec is supposed to be fully supported on these phones?

    Thank you for any help!

    Hi rbowman! Welcome to Nokia Developer discussion Boards!!

    Here is the list of currently supported packages of AMMS
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/ME_Develo...4FB5D741B.html
    And have seen that javax.microedition.amms.control.tuner is not supported in S60 3rd Ed. FP 1

    Also have a look at http://www.forum.nokia.com/ME_Develo..._d0e58158.html

    Regards
    Gopal

    Re: AMMS capture://radio not working on S60 3rd FP1

    Hi ,
    I have observed that most of the Nokia phones that claim to have FM-RDS phones actually do not support the JSR-234. I have seen people posting this issue for Nokia 5220 and i personally bought the Nokia e71 and i still get the same error that MediaException:Unable to create Player with locator capture://radio
    . Would someone at Nokia take this responsibility to explain the issue?
    Thanks,
    Aj

    The AMMS support on S60 devices includes only audio3d and music packages.
    The capture://radio approach works only on a number of Series 40 devices - not on S60 devices.

    Thanks for the reply Hartti. May be i am missing the point here .. You are saying that the "AMMS support on s60 is just for audio 3d and music" But if you look at the spec of some of the series 60 devices (say Nokia E-71) it clearly say FM-RDS support.. what does that really mean?? the Phone is capable of supporting that but the OS does not expose it ?
    Thanks
    Aj
