My Problems with CF - choppy playback, voice control, and VFD
not sure if this would qualify as a bug, but it is a problem I have so here it is.
I have CF v1.2 unning (not as shell) on my p4 running XP at 1600mhz with 256mb ram. my audio playback is choppy, stutters, drags, plays slow and otherwise sounds like fingernails scraping accross a chalkboard every time anything else is going on with my pc. god forbid I should minimize CF and open a folder for browsing.
is it just me? or should this run better than that?
it allways used to run fine(slow, but fine) with very little if any stuttering.
now its slow and sloppy. anyone else experiencing this?
next on the list, = Voice control. I went through a lot of trouble running the wires to discretely install a microphone in my dash so I could finally control CF with a mic:
"computer, Next Track" etc.
but it doesnt seem to want to work for me. I downloaded msttss22L.exe
from microsoft and installed it, but that seems more like a text to speech program than a voice input application.
some help here would be great.
and finally, I still havent got my character LCD to work with CF. Ive even made shortened my cables by a ways now that my pc is hidden in the dash rather than the trunk. once again, my character lcd works fine when used with lcdcenter, but doesnt work at all with CF. it worked perfectly well a few versions ago, but with the new version, its not wokring. :(
again, any help will be appreciated.
Ive even mailed one of my lcds to David to see if he could get it to work.
