Does it exist working drivers and software for the PCI MAX 2007+, and the R.D.S board ?
It should be able to grab mp3 tags from Amarok ( or other linux mp3 players), and be able of remote controll via LAN/WLAN.
I know that Kubuntu hardy herring has support for remote admin ( command line).

Here is a linux driver for PCI MAX, it even supports RDS:
http://pcimaxfm.devjavu.com/

It probably needs a quick update for the new rds daughter baord (v20).
The only new thing is a on/off parameter making it possible to turn the
rds encoder on or off, should take only a minute to a seasoned programmer.

Grab it off that site for a start and see how it works for pci max
without RDS function.

Otherwise you can use windows driver to set rds to ON and than use
it in llinux with old driver. The setting is stored in memory and
retained when you power-off the PC.
Than the old driver will work just perfectly.

Well maybe a friend does. I don't believe that in 2008 you don't have
access to at least one windows machine.
And if you don't than perhaps this is not a product for you yet, until
someone adds that command to the open-source linux driver.

Marko was kind to send me the details on the new RDS daughterboard, and I have now updated the driver. After recompiling you can toggle the RDS signal by using:
Code:
$ pcimaxctl --rds-signal=1


It's easy to automate transmitter operation with the command line tool. As an example you can set all PS/PD banks with a one-liner like this:
Code:
$ for i in $(seq -w 0 39); do val=$val"PD$i=1,PS$i=..PS$i..,"; done; pcimaxctl --rds=$val; unset val

Please keep us updated on how it turns out. There are 4 version profiles in the config script (2004/2005/2006/2007). 2007 is the default, if you have a 2004 card type:
Code:
./configure --with-version=2004

If you have a pre-2004 card I can add 1st-generation PCI MAX support as it's implemented in the legacy 2.4 driver, but I'll need your help testing as I've only got a 2007 card myself.
