(Plans for) radio via fm tuners / DAB+ tuners


#1

Hello,

I’m looking at building a radio for a motor with spotify bundled using a rpi + mopidy…
Why mopidy?
Because it supports spotify.
But I do listen to “normal” radio often.
Therefore, is there any existing way or future plans to integrate a radio reciever (normal fm or DAB+) into mopidy?
According to what I understand it should be a backend extension for mopidy itsself?
I’m willing to help write one if there are plans for making one.

I would also be stoked to see this as a feature.

Putting in some thoughts on this topic.

Use dab-cmdline, and make a callback to put the audio stream into Mopidy.
Use the Streams module to build something new to select a station to be received.
Instead of providing a stream URL, one has to specify the commandline arguments for dab-cmdline.
The stations can be stored and selected simular to streams.
Also something simular for FM should be created.

As a starting point, where are the streams sources located in Mopidy?
Thanx.
