This plugin enables VDR to get input from an analog radio device, as it can be found on many analog tv tuner cards. It uses video4linux functions to control /dev/radioX.


Simply switch to the channel, you want to listen to, as you switch to a usual tv channel. It should behave like all the DVB radio channels.
