    Is it possible to get DAB radio on a Mac. I've got a PowerPC G5 with Tiger. Are there any apps you can get or any tuners you have to buy because I can't find any anywhere?

    Thanks for any help

    Edit: I know there's radioShark but thats just FM/AM. I could get that but is the radio quality on it any good? The reason I want to get it , is to listen to radio through my Mac speakers which are very good

    I'm not aware of any standalone DAB radio product but I use a Digital Terrestrial Television receiver which allows me to listen to the digital radio broadcasts.

    Check the Apple Store for eyeTV or TVMini.

    I don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for, but there are a number of widgets that'll allow you to get radio through your Mac – such as RadioTuner or the BBC Radio widget.

    They might not give you the full range of DAB stations on offer, but they're a start and free to boot. :)

    What about a DAB radio with optical audio out. That should work if your mac has optical audio in that is.
