RadioShack SAME Weather Radio 12-258 info
Hi, I ran across your page on developing software for the RadioShack SAME Weather Radio (12-258). I did a bit of looking at the internals on my unit (picked one up for $4 at a local thrift store). Looks like it uses a Cypress CY7C63221A to handle most of the USB functions, and an 8bit Toshiba uC (TMP87CH47U) for everything else. Do you have the Windows software for the device? I've looked a bit but haven't found it. You might also be interested in this (assuming you haven't already seen it) http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bushing/ openvizsla-open-source-usb-protocol-analyzer Thanks, Jeremy
Thanks for your interest in the project.
I have finally updated the info on this project. Although it is a dead project I've been meaning to document the process and have finally found the time to do so. Hopefully it will be useful to someone. You will also find the source code is available now in the downloads section. Please let me know how your work with this radio goes.
I'll have a look to see if I can find the original Window$ software.
