I normally listen music from my computer and this one located in a separate room where I can't connect to my home theater or DTH receiver to listen radio. How can I listen local FM radio stations from my computer. Let me know any solutions comes into your mind.

Re: Listening Local FM stations from computer

My tv tuner card has standalone FM audio option too.

So my guess is you'll have to install some add-on card.

I fear I may also face the same issue, my computer is placed in a corner but a window is available right above it.

Can anyone clarify whether it works under such conditions?

Re: Listening Local FM stations from computer

try to find a USB FM HW that can work with Radiator.
This is the best software for FM on your PC and works with various cards

I use it with my dlink FM card and quality is great.

Here is the link to Radiator
