Magic Rds + BW Broadcast
« on: October 21, 2019, 09:14:45 pm »
Hello,
I dont find how to configure Magic RDS for Dynamic RT with my BW Broadcast Sender.

My BW Broadcast is on TCP IP  in my network and i can communique standalone with him without any problems.
If i take my ip on the Magic RDS Configuration > ok and ready but if i click read or send "communication error".

My BW Broadcast TX100 have an API in his software.
The normal way is loggin before send information with this kind of URL : http://192.168.1.100/api/auth?password=password
I can log in Firefox or Chrome without any problem and send http requests.

How to communicate with Magic RDS ?
I put my ip in TCP IP + port > Connected but not communicate.
Thanks.

Jan

Your device is currently not supported by this freeware tool. The support is however planned in upcoming version 4.

It is not only an update, the application is being completely rewritten. This project is delayed by about 2 years so we now focused on that all our efforts. We want to release a beta by end of this year.

We will definitely use direct TCP connection rather than HTTP protocol.

For you information it working now ! BW Broadcast support help me.

Configuration working is with 3.6 Version or earlier (not with 3.7 or 3.8):
- Tcp/ip > direct ip of fm sender
- Uncheck bidirectionnal + Autodetect port speed

With this config, i can send all rds information but not receive.

Thank you

It works partially, especially for the 'Now playing' text output, the version 4 will bring full support as it will implement more communication protocols, incl. UECP and MicroRDS. For some encoders (not for BW) the UECP implementation will be paid only.
