Like a few of you, I want to use my WP for MP3's in my automobile, and other places. Maximum PC just had a review of the "Irock! Wireless music adapter" and I thought it would work great for the WP. I tried it out, and it does work pretty good. It plugs into the headphone jack on the WP, and broadcasts in FM to a nearby stereo (like in my Jeep)
Best part is it's about $30. I am going to see if I can make it internal to the WP next..
I've had one of those for about 7 years...its pretty cool. Around here anyway, they can be found for about $20 at places like k-mart. I even hacked that with a bigger antena...now I can transmit about 1 mile away! OK, it is illegal to do that, but as long as no one tells the FCC I will be fine....
Would you be interested in passing your hack of the Irock on to me? I would be interested in that. My house is old plaster, and I need a stronger signal to get around the house.. Thanks.. you can email me back at jimtrich (at) attbi (dot) com .
Yeah, I think it uses the cord for the antenna. you would have to increase the transmitting power. It works on 12V. So, you could power both from an ATX PSU (I am now thinking of inputting my power via a molex connector on the back to give me 12V and 5V and a better PSU) or if in a car, use the cigarette lighter.
I am very interested to hear more about the hack done to the wireless transmitter. I have looked at the iRock, but have read it has a very short (on the order of a few feet) transmit range. I have seen some of the other transmitters on the market at the $20 to $30 and I assumed the same range would apply.
All I really need is about 100 feet through 3 walls max.
It doesn't work on 12 volts, how could it when you have to put 2 AAA batteries in it? Unless it has some kind of DC-DC converter, it works on 3.0 volts. im_eguy, what kind of voltage do you have going to it?
