[App_rpt-users] Question

This is MY opinion and may not be the opinion of the AllStar Team.

What is the obsession with these FOBs?  This community has a great source of quality interfaces, and there is NO reason not to utilize them.  DMK doesn't HAVE to provide the URI, but thankfully they do.  For all you who have bought knockoff FOBs with the hopes of them being a CM108, how much money have you wasted? If you are too cheap to buy a URI, go run an EchoStink node!

ok, im off my soapbox, thanks

If you would like samples of some of the ones i have obtained, 
thinking they were cm-108 based and they were not.....:(
 
i can send you a few for testing & evauation.
 
if it would make the fobs ezer to add since there seems to be a glut of the "clones" out there.  
i have bought so many of these from the C.H.Ina co via the usual hong-knog souces. 
 
i have a few so a wide and varried sample for testing is not a problem
they are just cluttering up the desk...

The CM-108 and its fully compatible cousins (all from C-Media) are still very much
in production and available as far as the actual IC goes. As far as pre-made USB soundcards
that use these IC's go, yes it is seemingly more difficult to find such things. The CM-108

was selected, because, at the time, it was by far the most common IC found in such devices
and was of EXTREMELY high quality, reliability, and consistency (not to mention VERY good
value!). 

Nowadays, is there once again, a generalized consensus focused upon some new, different,

IC, or are all the available (and inexpensive) USB sound cards pretty much just random??
I haven't, nor have I had time to even look lately. If there is, perhaps it would be worthwhile
to see if whatever this device is meets the requirements for this application.

If there is something worth checking out, I am not adverse to doing so.
