What is 'FM digital radio, not DAB' and radio card setup?


Anyone kno what:
'digital FM radio reception (not DAB type)'
means?

Is there such a thing in the UK?

Because I'm trying to get said radio on a:
PEAK 138508AGPK
DVB-T Digital TV Hybrid PCI Card:

Quote:
The low-profile design can easily fit into barebones or miniPC cases, and the additional AV/S-Video input can receive the signals from the connecting DVD Player / VCD / VHS / Camcorder etc. The product comes with powerful software that allows PEAK DVB-T Digital TV Hybrid PCI Card to feature applications such as Quick Setup, Channel Auto Scan, Teletext, digital FM radio reception (not DAB type) and Electronic Program Guide (EPG) etc. These features make digital TV programs immediately accessible to anyone, anywhere!
Code:
saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.14 loaded

saa7133[0]: registered device vbi0
saa7133[0]: registered device radio0

In fact have now put in card options of saa7134 card=81 tuner=54 and
analog tv works. But above accurate otherwise.  Nothing about scanning 
radio in dmesg but device /dev/radio0 exists.
Tried scanning it with gqradio but nothing appears to be comming throught.

Well, you could have "a digital FM radio" (the PLL for the tuner and hence the reception frequency is set digitally, but its just a digiatl tuner listening in to analogue FM radio), but that's not the same as "Digital FM Radio".

Great thanks salasi. Have got something out of it: GQradio; scan; then presets of about six stations. Very poor reception, except, God help us, Clasic FM.

It's DVB radio

Hi,

It's radio broadcast over DVB and has nothing to do with FM.

DVB allows for audio-only stations, or in more traditional parlance, radio stations.

Regards,

Soyeb
