    Thank you very much, this does help.

    I added the setting to rr.ini and it did tone the radio down.
    Your right about it being hard to find, at least for the non-programing type. I had skimmed the files in the documentation dir, but there are so many settings for so many things it's overwhelming.

    I've got the latest version of your software and ctrl-v worked. Does this setting only apply when in the software?

    So the noise in the vid is a problem with the device it's self? If you'll pm me with where I can ship it I'll get it right out.

    Again, I really appreciate the help.
    Thanks,
    davidk

    yes, the setting is software based, to tell the HW what level to be at
    the bbhd software will set it to that on every run so you're good

    both RR and CF have volume settings
    since it does depend on OS, due to some issues with usbaudio
    (mostly win7s over gain)

    With your help things are getting better.
    I removed those two things and I don't hear that high pitched noise any more.

    It sill will seem to loose signal and give a loud static burst. Tuning a different station does not fix it. It will come back and go out on it's own even if left on the same station.

    The other thing is it killing RR when the relay clicks in the BB tuner. RR starts, the relay clicks on the BB and RR terminates. After several restarts of RR it will stay running.

    On the pluss side, the volume settings are getting dialled in. I've got the RealTech sound card setup for 4 channel sound. Whats strange is when the radio is playing, the wave volume controls the front speakers. I can work with it but it's kinda strange.

    Any ideas on the first two issues?
    Thanks,
    davidk

    i have no idea on loud static burst, never had that happen nor has anyone else
    antenna issue?

    use bbhd software for a bit

    the relay clicks are normal...
    might have NOTHING to do with why your RR terminates... run debug
    and see if anything of interest in the log

    Subaru's aren't known for their outstanding antennas, but when it happens the display still shows full signal. What would make a decent antenna for testing?

    I still need to test it more but the bbhd software might be working better now. In other posts you've said the code in RR is the same as bbhd so what could be up with that?

    The relay it's self might not be directly causing RR to terminate, but whatevers going on with the software at the time it does click is more likely as I see it.
    I've got two debugs, one where it terminates and one where it doesn't.
    rr terminates = debug1.txt
    rr starts and stops normally = debug.txt

    And a vid showing almost the same thing as before [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPxwNQs4QMc[/media]
    Still getting noise and it seems that the "static" is louder than the tuned station.

    Thanks

    maybe bad tuner? i dont know...
    when u are NOT in RADIO(ie mp3) and you pause player
    your system should be slient

    yes the bbhd and rr share the same exact radio control code

    but for sure you got issues

    if you use winamp as player, switch to linein plugin
    and enable use linein plugin for radio
    for sure an advanced feature, but very usefull
    (http://home.hccnet.nl/th.v.d.gronde/...WA2/index.html)

    just setting use line in plugin alone, would be good to test for stability

    DING DING DING, I think we have a winner here!

    I loaded the line in plugin and now it seems stable and no unwanted noise. It's also playing front and back speakers at the same volume.
    Now I adjust the BB level using the bbhd software and ctrl-v so it's about the same level as the mp3's.
    Need to test more but it's working after reboots and hibernate/resumes.

    Things I've learned:
    Get latest software.
    While in the BBHD software, ctrl-v will set radio volume level (there is no control of it in the normal volume control in XP).
    Using BB without the line in plugin caused rr to be unstable.
    RR.ini has a setting for radio volume.
    I know very little about all the options available in RR.
    I'm not as patient as I thought I was.
    Mitch is very helpful (and on the computer alot)

    At this point I think it's working well enough to mount it behind the dash. If it continues to be stable it's time to move on to the joycon.

    I'd again like to thank you for the help.
    Without it I'd never have gotten it working.

    i wish i had access to your setup, so i could learn why there is a audio capture issue in the code...
    and oddly the BBHD uses the same capture code

    but there is many advantages to using the line-in plugin....
    out side of the stability issue
    now u can use winamps EQ too!

    i wonder if its related to the capture data speaker flags

    i set the pcm data to have
    wfx.ChannelMask = (uint)(Speakers.SPEAKER_FRONT_LEFT | Speakers.SPEAKER_FRONT_RIGHT | Speakers.SPEAKER_BACK_LEFT | Speakers.SPEAKER_BACK_RIGHT);

    so that it plays back to 4 channels, even though technically it shouldnt since its only 2 channel audio

    and should only play on front
    rememeber pc audio is Home theater based, not car crap audio based

    in anycase, the line-in plugin, is written by a much better programmer than me
    -Thanks

    quick question

    what kind of audio system do u have?
    and how is your speakers setup?
    how many does windows audio system think you have

    remember, 2 channel audio should technically NOT play out of any other speakers
    then the front!!!

    if u set your speakers to say 5.1

    and play a MP3, technically only front should play!!
    cause its NOT 5.1 audio

    i know thats not how u want it in a car...but thats how pc audio is designed
    car is crap audio, where typically we make a copy of the front audio, and put it on the rear
    with a fully routable audio card one can do that, or use VAC and audiomulch...and other ways...

    also... with winamp, there is prob a output plugin that can do it too
    -Thanks

    If you want, I've got TeamViewer on it. We could setup a time to do a remote session.

    how many does windows audio system think you have
    It's and Intel D510 using the on-board Realtech audio.
    The Realtech driver is setup for a 4 speaker system. I'm using two ports on the system board to feed a 4 channel amp.
    I assume it's the Realtech driver thats directing the same audio out the back speakers.

    remember, 2 channel audio should technically NOT play out of any other speakers
    then the front!!!
    if u set your speakers to say 5.1

    Give me a PM if you'd like to connect to my system. I'm in Central time. The car can be connected after 4pm usually.

    Thanks again,
