Listen to Ryan Vallon's call on FloSports away games

Tired of being driven crazy by homer announcer broadcasts when the Falcons are on the road? Well fret no more because here are the steps needed to listen to Ryan Vallon call every FloSports away game on the FALCON…RRRRADIO NETWORK!

You will need a PC with two pieces of software loaded that will allow you to manually sync Ryan’s broadcast with the FloSports video stream. The first of these is called Virtual Audio Cable. Normally Windows will route sound from audio streams like WBGU FM directly to your PC’s speakers/Audio Out port. This software will interrupt that flow allowing you to reroute the audio to other devices. To install Virtual Audio Cable, follow these steps:
1. https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/
2. Click the orange Download button
3. Open the downloaded zip file and extract all files to a separate folder
4. Assuming you have 64-bit Windows right click on the file VBCABLE_Setup_x64 and select Run as administrator
5. That's it

The second piece of software will allow you to manually synchronize Ryan’s call to the FloSports video stream. The software is called Radio Delay from DaanSystems (pronounced “Don” – he’s Belgian). To install Radio Delay, follow these steps:
1. https://www.daansystems.com/radiodelay/
2. Scroll to the Download section and click on Radiodelay.exe (272KB).
3. When the download finishes, click on the executable and the software will install on your computer.

This version will allow for a delay up to 30 seconds. If FloSports is delayed more than 30 seconds do the following:
1. From the DaanSystems website click on the file radiodelay_180.zip (107 KB)
2. When the download finishes, open the zip file and copy the file radiodelay.exe to the location C:\Program Files (x86)\Radiodelay and replace the existing file. This will allow a delay of up to 3 minutes.

Almost done. Tune into WBGU FM or head to http://www.BGSUHockey.com and fire up Game Day Central where you’ll find the stream for that evenings game. You should hear the audio stream through your PC speakers. Now to redirect the audio stream to Radio Delay:
1. From the Start button open up the Settings and select Sound
2. Under the option “Choose your output device” select “CABLE Input (VB-Audio Virtual Cable). The sound from your speakers will stop. That’s OK.
3. Open up Radio Delay. In the section Input Device select CABLE OUTPUT (VB-Audio Virtual).
4. In the section Output, make sure Speakers are selected.
5. VERY IMPORTANT (this always trips me up)…in the lower left corner is a box labeled Control. Make sure the “Play” button is selected.
6. You should now hear the audio stream coming from your PC speakers.
7. To synchronize Ryan’s broadcast with the FloSports video stream you will need to tinker with the slider bar in the section "Delay in seconds." Once you have the audio and video synchronized, sit back, relax, and enjoy the game with the call from our own Ryan Vallon. Oh...be sure to turn the volume off on your TV.

To clean everything up, go back to Settings/Sound and change the output device back to Speakers.
