I'm wondering about the feasibility and requesting some guidance in the pursuance of a project that will use Arduino to dictate the radio frequency of old boom boxes. I believe this shouldn't be too difficult but I'm a newbie with electronics and Arduino so I figured I'd ask first.
Basically, I'd like to bypass the potentiometer on the boom box and cycle through stations with the Arduino. I suspect it might just be a matter of replacing the potentiometers wires with those coming from Arduino, but any insight would be great. I'm using older boom boxes so they should all have analog tuners.
If you are confused, here's a video of someone doing exactly what I want to do, but with a digital tuner: http://vimeo.com/20932884
Does anyone have advice on how I would get started?
Thank you so much.
