P3300 FM Radio Alarm LCD Clock

This sounds like a pretty good idea. While I know nothing about programming, it seems that the functions are all there on the phone. Launching the FM radio app set the loudspeaker and high volume should be straightforward.

One thing that may be needed is to default from FM to buzzer if the headset isn't attached: otherwise the alarm would fail to wake you altogether.

The FM Radio remembers all the settings you like anyway so all that's needed is to simple "run" the program.

I wouldn't be too bothered about a buzzer going off, the standard alarm on the phone could still be used in conjunction with this.

It would be so nice to have a good LCD style clock taking up the whole screen to look at in the night! :rolleyes:

Seems pretty straightforward, since 'backlight off' on the Artemis is still dimly lit, perfect for a LCD clock!

So does this mean its "technically" possible then? If someone could share with me the line of code to run other applications from within .Net, then i shall gladly have a go until i get stuck by something else!

FM Radio launches at a specific hard coded time now!

Here's the magic part:

if (DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString() == "06:30")

{

System.Diagnostics.Process p = new System.Diagnostics.Process();

p.StartInfo.FileName = "FMRadio.exe";

p.Start();

}

That's all, simple.

Would anyone find this useful to continue developing or shall i keep it for my own personal use??

Any Ideas?

Ideas for version 1.1

- Option to make the dots flash! :-)

- Option to change the colour of the clock

Very nice.

Doesn't the Artemis require the headphones plugged in as an antenna?

It does indeed.

Last night was night one of testing and i discovered that these things are needed for it to be used effectively:

1) Plug in the headphones

2) Make sure battery is charged (my old Wizard battery is the same type so i always have a fully charged one)

3) Change settings of backlight, keep on all the time

4) Change settings to have phone not turning off after a certain amount of time

5) Change settings so that the Phone Lock doesn't come on after a certain amount of time

I'm sure i can probably override these things in the software.

Glad you like it

HKLM/System/State/Hardware/

set Headset to '1'

Is apparently the registry tweak to allow radio to work without headphones, although whether you can get any sort of reception without an antenna is questionable.

Also this registry entry will be reset if you plug headphones in, and then unplug them, so this registry entry would need to be set each time your alarm clock is run.

(EDIT) From where I am, I couldn't get any radio stations with no headset plugged in.

What if the registry setting was applied and then the charger cable inserted? Would the charger cable act as an antenna? Interesting!

Didn't work for me, still just static, although it did occur to me, that the actual headphones could be plugged in, but the output from the Radio app, still be set to speaker via the menu. Need to find my original headphones.

Hi SystemicAnomaly I don't have a P3300 so I was wondering if we could have an option to play an MP3 file instead of launching the radio? that way those of us with normal PDA's could use this as well :rolleyes:

The FM Radio remembers that you like to listen through the main speaker so the headphones being plugged in isn't a problem.

I will look into being able to launch a different app to play an MP3 or maybe even launch Win Media Player with a custom playlist.

Yep confirmed and tested. Works well. With headset plugged in the FM radio will still wake up set to speaker. A shame though, means you couldn't have the device plugged in on charge overnight, thus negating the issue with the device and display being on all night. I haven't tested just how well the battery would last the night in this state.
