How to Watch TV and Listen to Radio Call

Recommended Posts

After a few seasons of putting it off, I finally found the right combination of hardware and software to make this easy.


You need: a radio. A computer with speakers. An audio patch cable ($5 at Radio Shack). RadioDelay software http://www.daansystems.com/radiodelay/



The cable you need is a simple patch cable, it will plug into your radio's headphone jack and into your computer's microphone jack. under $5 at Radio Shack.


Install the RadioDelay software - it's very easy.


Tune your radio to the station you want to listen to, turn the volume WAY down but not to zero.


Plug in the cable


You might need to open the 'Audio Mixer' in windows so you can see where your audio signals are at. Adjust volume/gain here, and adjut it on your radio. Keep the radio's volume as low as possible so you don't overload your computer's input. You will probably need to mute the normal microphone input channel, if you are hearing a double/overlap audio.


The software uses a slider to adjust the amount of delay. The best time to adjust is when a referee is speaking, you can sync theiur lips to the sound. Also many teams fire a cannon or siliar on kickoff so yo can use that to get your timing right.


Now, just need to figure out how to run all this into a DVR so I can pause the radio in sync with the TV... maybe next season...

My dad and I figured this out for the Wisconsin game. We took the radio signal from his stereo and fed it through a standalone DVR. The DVR was then hooked up to his soundbar. We muted the TV and paused the DVR about 10 seconds and it was synced up nearly perfectly.

Believe it is now set for sync with the HD broadcast isn't it?..............(sometimes the first few minutes are not and then they get it right)...........at least that's been my experience.........
