Actually, the easiest way is to contact Paravel Systems for support... I
think you'll pay about 1000 or so for the first year, but you can get
the right answers, quickly, rather than relying on general expertise of
the community...

you'll get the right answers, faster, and the ones that depend on the
specific circumstance you have...

you can create a dropbox anywhere on your computer, again, it depends on
the specific metadata pattern you need to use, or you can use rdimport,
and pick them up wherever...

assuming its alsa compatible it, should likely already be there, but one
would have to know your specifics.  you really don't want to run on the
onboard sound card for long, as it seem like for have a fairly real
radio station

yea, but again, it would initially need to be set up...I'd contact
support, as they can have you connect to them, and then they can set you
up correctly...

if you have a lot of time, it may help, but I think I have already
mentioned the BEST way!
