    API for FM Radio?

    Is there documentation for the FM tuner and Radio Data Service (RDS) API on Nokia's Windows phones?

    Thanks!

    Hi Holy Samosa,

    Please have a look @
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.92).aspx

    Note: This app requires access to the phone’s media library (ID_CAP_MEDIALIB capability).

    Re: API for FM Radio?

    I tried to use this namespace Microsoft.Devices.Radio

    FMRadio.Instance - to create FMRadio singleton instance
    RadioPowerMode.On - to power on
    FMRadio.Frequency - to set the frequency
    FMRadio.CurrentRegion = RadioRegion.UnitedStates (Currently other supported regions are Europe and Japan)

    Tested in Windows Phone emulator. Not very impressive. Do not know whether i have missed any thing.
    Always get some music (constantly played)
    US - 89.4,91.4,93.4,96.4,101.4,106.8 (MHz)
    Europe - 108.1 (MHz)
    Japan - 90.1 (MHz)

    I am trying to make it more accurate.

    How's the radio reception in the emulator? I'd imagine it might work better in an actual device with an actual FM radio receiver.

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks to the pointer to Microsoft's new FMRadio class. My search missed that one.

    Unfortunately and surprisingly, it doesn't support Radio Data Service (RDS)-- which is a must for my application. I would expect that the Nokia phones would support RDS, so will Nokia be providing an API?

    Thanks!

    Although the built-in radio has RDS, it is n't exposed via public API

    Will there be a Nokia API? I could really need RDS info for one of my apps
