I want this, too. I tried this with the Red Wings in the playoffs, it was only a slight improvement over the crap on CBC or NBC.
Sync radio with TV?
God NBC sucks. Pierre is so annoying. I loved when he was trying to talk to Bill Guerin and Guerin looked so pissed. He talks shit about players when they're right next to him.
Pierre is less annoying when on Canadian TV, he has admitted in the past that he acts like an idiot on American TV because he assumes nobody in the audience understands hockey.
A radio show here in Chicago was giving one of these away (and if it's a radio giveaway, it HAS to be quality. e-fact). http://www.scannermaster.com/DelayPlay_p/01-561344.htm
That looks less cheap and plasticky, but it is also 5 times more expensive.
Still, it's good to see that such devices do exist. It's just a matter of finding the right one.
do this so I can listen to Dan Dickerson on the radio during Tigers games when I so desire.
for the country-strong tandem of Mario and Rod, partner?
Can't test it out myself because I'm on Linux right now.
If you're running Debian-based Linux and really want to get your nerd on, Computer Music Toolkit (sudo apt-get install cmt) seems like it might have that feature.
Oh wow...that looks perfect. I'm going to test it out the moment I get back into town and off of my Mac.
I think you just found the keys to the kingdom, though! Thanks!!
Actually Wonk, I have had the same problem for years and finally found a very simple solution last year, for free. Basically the radio feed that UM puts on the net at mgoblue.com is a good 30 seconds to 1 minute behind the video on TV. Thus if you have a DVR or Tivo type device on your television, you can stream the game audio over the internet, and then use the DVR to sync the two up. I just have a laptop sitting on the table in front of the TV, playing the audio, but I am sure others would come up with more elegant solutions. It takes about 2-3 minutes to get things just right after the game starts, but its clear sailing from then on. It really only works for college sports, because you have to pay to get most pro-radio feeds on the net. But at least as of today this is a wonderful free solution to be able to listen to Brandy claim every close call should go Michigan's way :)
It's so simple, yet so brilliant. Good call!
