    The software takes up 253 K of memory. Also, I didn't mention... I could not order the card directly on-line, I had to call C-guys and order over the phone. .....

    I donít mean to be redundant, but I keep having the same problem. How do I satisfactorily listen to streaming radio on my Treo 650? I have tried using Shoutcast broadcast at the lowest possible bit rate, but I still get buffer interruptions every 30-60 seconds. It doesnít seem to matter where I am located as far as signal strength goes. It happens even when the service indicator shows that I have good edge service. Once when I asked this question someone suggested that I download the stream and play it. I am not sure I understand what they meant. How exactly would I do that? I see other post where people are raving about streaming. What am I doing wrong?

    The above link is for "Radio" rather than "Radio2".
    The link to the one for the Treo ("Radio2") is:

    Any luck, did you try this radio ?

    Edit:
    I've now read COTREO's review. Cool, I see their website does not list it as available yet.

    I will have to watch it and see if they post to the UK , when available.

    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Thanks for the URL.
    I have Pocket Tunes Deluxe and they suggest Shoutcast and Live365 as sites for streaming audio. But theirs is mostly music. I would really like to listen to BBC radio (I even like the ads) and other news stations to get more perspective on the news, kinda like a ham. But most require a version of RealPlayer that the Treo doesn't have and is really for Windows-much bigger application.

    I've been trying to buy one of the c-guys sd fm radio2 cards. The one pictured on dealsonic's website is the larger "radio", not "radio2." (http://www.dealsonic.com/csdsedifmstr.html) Dealsonic didn't know if they're actually selling the smaller one or not. So I called c-guys, who told me they have no remaining radio2 cards in stock, and that they were recently bought by another Japanese company, and are getting ready to close their US store. They offered to ship me one from Japan, for an extra $50 in shipping costs, but they said there would be no tech support for it, and they didn't know if there ever would be. Bummer. They said to keep checking their webiste (http://www.c-guysusa.com/SD-Radio.html) for updates, that they might eventually have some to sell to US customers. Someone posted an idea for an in-line FM receiver (http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=105399), which seems like a great idea.

I loaded the software on my Treo 650 and plugged the card in. At first, I could not get the radio to function. I tried it on my PPC and it worked fine. I spoke with tech support at C-guys, they emailed a software update within the hour! Everything functioned fine after that. In short, this is what I found. The reception was good, worked well in doors as would most FM radios. The sound was clear and I actually found the highest volume level to be too loud. I am not an audiophile, so I cannot really speak to the richness of the tones and what-not. It sounds as good as any standard FM radio, clear and crisp. I also took it on a bike ride around the city and was able to recieve a good signal wherever I went. Software. There are some gaps in the software, but, based on the rapid reponse I received with the software update, I am sure these can be corrected. Basically you have the following - 18 preset stations, manual tuning, on/off button, screen off button (I will discuss this more, later), volume control, preset scan, mute button. Issues with the 650... The radio does not turn off and on when you receive and end a phone call. The volume on the radio cannot be changed using the side button (ring volume) on the Treo (but can be changed with the 5-way navigation button). The radio will continue to function when you go to other programs, but if you receive a phone call, SMS or email, it will stop. You will need to go back into the program to restart the radio. The off button on the Treo turns the radio off as well, it doesnt keep running like P-tunes. Thus you have the "screen off" button on the software. You can use the 5-way navigation button to control all of the basic features of the radio. It would be nice if the card were a little shorter to reduce the overall height... its not bad. There is enough of a gap between the radio and the top of the phone to get your finger in and use the silent slider switch. Bottom line... it works well for me. I purchased this device, because the only chance I have to watch TV (with FM broadcast) and catch up on the news is when I go to the gym... its easy, small and functional. For me, it rates a 7.5 out of 10. The price was also reasonable and factors into my rating ($38.00) Sorry this is not more organized, but I only had a few minutes to put this together.
    Great post and thanks for the pics.
    I know I am dumb as a rock, but I cannot find the phone number to order.
    Can you share the number to contact them?

    Thanks
