pyFMRadio is a pure Python module for controlling the tea5761 FM tuner chip on the Nokia N800 internet tablet. The other internet tablets Nokia 770 and Nokia N810 don't have a FM tuner chip.
pyFMRadio depends only on the Python standard modules. There are no further dependencies.
Here's a simple example of how to use the module.
# import radio stuff from FMRadio import FMRadio, FMRadioUnavailableError stations =  def scan_cb(freq, is_station): """ Callback for scanning for stations. This callback is called for every frequency and tells you if a radio station was found. """ print "scanning @ %0.2f MHz" % (freq / 1000.0), if (is_station): print "STATION FOUND" stations.append(freq) else: print "" # open the radio try: radio = FMRadio() except FMRadioUnavailableError: # radio not available print "Your device doesn't seem to have a FM radio..." import sys; sys.exit(1) # get frequency range; currently only the US/Europe frequency band is supported # by the driver low, high = radio.get_frequency_range() print "Frequency range: %0.2f - %0.2f MHz" % (low / 1000.0, high / 1000.0) # scan for radio stations radio.scan(scan_cb) # if we have found some stations, start playing if (stations): radio.set_volume(50) print "Now listen to the radio." for freq in stations: print "Tuning in %0.2f MHz." % (freq / 1000.0) radio.set_frequency(freq) import time; time.sleep(3) else: print "No radio stations found. The signal is too weak." # don't forget to shutdown the radio; this will also power down the radio chip print "Switching off the radio." radio.close()
