Has anyone been able to give pulse audio a try yet?
Very curious to see how it goes.
If you are so curious, why don't you give it a try yourself
May I suggest you have a look at www.Logicsupply.com for your Media Directors?
I've done some searching on the forum on these logicsupply devices... What's our track record with them?
QuoteIs it possible to do this within a core or a media director?
No. It takes an RCA style input, not implementedable within LinuxMCE.
These devices are intended to be plugged directly into a car stereo and would require modification to use otherwise. It's not meant meant for home system use, there are devices for that purpose, such as amplified matrix distribution systems.
Link for what I am talking about... obviously this is made for a car so range could be an issue. I will try to find some specs.
These are great devices, I have one of these in my car. I does not broadcast an FM signal though, it is simply a modulator, not a transmitter. It would allow you to modulate an audio signal onto an FM carrier frequency which you could then connect to the FM Antenna input on a receiver, this could probably be distributed through coax cable and a couple of splitters. As a minimum it would allow a single FM radio device with an external antenna input to receive an audio signal from a single device with RCA style outputs. These devices are not regulated because they do not 'broadcast' their signal through the air, only within a wire.
FM transmitters are limited in power (and therefor range) by broadcast regulators (CRTC here, FCC in the US, etc..). Without a licence from a regulatory body FM transmitters are limited to the approx. 10' you've mentioned. I've used some that will do 20' on fresh batteries. These devices can sometimes be modified for higher broadcast power but you are then in violation of FCC/CRTC regulations. I've not seen an FM transmitter that does not run on batteries (I assume for transmit power purposes) because they are usually intended to be portable, like for your car.
