Question of general direction...

    Question

  • I'm looking to build a windows 8 store app (personal use, not for publishing) that would be able to take a raw audio stream from a USB FM receiver. The app would have simple controls to change the station, start and stop the audio stream That's about it. 

    I've never worked with USB before, and I was wondering if I could capture the proper commands for the device, if I could build my own small app as mentioned above using Windows.Devices.Usb. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn312121(v=vs.85).aspx). I've searched around to see if anyone has done anything similar but can't find much. I have basic programming experience and have a quite a lot of homework to do for this if it's even possible. Just wanted to get some insight first from the experts on what direction I should be taking if there's one to take at all. 

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    You work with windows store app, so I moved this thread to Building Windows Store apps with C# or VB forum for better support.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    In windows 8.1, with the introduction of the new Windows.Devices.Usb,apps can connect to a device based on user-specified criteria, get information about the device, send data to the device and conversely get data steams from the device, and poll the device for interrupt data. So If you want to take a raw audio stream from a USB FM receiver, you can see some links below and try to code by yourself:

    And see Custom USB device access sample.

    Best Wishes!
