Adding a audio line level input to handle an OTA Tuner
« on: March 16, 2011, 07:37:38 am »
I have an old Pioneer TX-530 AM/FM Stand-Alone Tuner that I would like to hook into the MCE system so I can listen to local radio.  I can't for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong.

I gone into the admin page / Wizards / Devices / AV Equipment / Add Device / Template 2145 (Pioneer OTARadio) / Pick Device Template, and rebooted the Core when prompted.

I don't know how to tell MCE to listen to Line-In on the sound card.  There is no button created for Radio to listen.  I know I won't be able to control the tuner (as in station), but I would like to be able to listen to it anywhere in the house.

Can someone point me in the right direction?  Is this something that can be done?

Thanks

I think the Pioneer OTARadio template is a subtemplate of a pioneer receiver. and as such does not have the I/O you need.  It thinks it is a radio inside a receiver.  I beleive you will need to create your own template with the correct IO and then it should work however I am not sure how you would set the device pipes because the core doesn't have audio inputs.

How do you add an audio input pipe?  I have the (tuner / cassette desk / 8-track / auxillary (you pick)) device's line level output plugged into the line input on my home theatre media director.

I have tried creating a template, but it only has outputs.  I tried using the AV Wizard, but it wanted to have a device template as well.
