    Good deal

    That was a problem, and did fix it in 1.466, I was hoping it would fix the spdif muting issue as well, looks like it didn't...

Maybe this is why it thinks it's NONE? Because it's not truly saving the settings??
    Will look into...
    EDIT: Can you post your CF error.log? Might need that for this one, looks like there may be an exception happening in the code... Best scenario would be to clear error.log, open CF, go into settings, reproduce issue, close CF, check error log to see if anything has been written to it, let me know if not, or send me log if so...

I mentioned it to again to David in the 1.46 thread, and he said he's still looking into it, and also to try and keep the discussion of it in this thread for organization purposes.

    As far as Buffer mode goes, there's still a problem where I have to go to the Windows mixer and manually select the SPDIF record line to get audio. I didn't have that issue in earlier versions of SatRadio. It seemed to at least work in Buffer mode.

    All that will hopefully be moot anyway because I need to use Sat Radio in non-buffer mode because of my mic being plugged into my soundcard. The ultimate goal here is to get Centrafuse/XM plug to unmute the SPDIF PLAYBACK line when entering the XM module, and to remute it when starting media playback, or exiting Centrafuse.

    David is fully aware of this, but I wanted to make sure you were too because I really have no idea how much of that is tied to the XM module itself.

    For your reference, my log from this morning is attached.
    I'm looking at the log and there is nowhere in the log where you switch from XM audio to another type audio, plus it looks like you are in buffer mode while running this log. Can you run in non-buffer mode, switch audio source a few times from XM to whatever, close CF, and then post that log? It might give me a possible clue about the plyback spdif line not muting...

    Ok Scott, we are SO close to being there. The remaining audio issue may be more David's area... not sure.

    First off, let me say there is a problem with the CF error.log. I cleared it out and started fresh as you suggested, but now it's not logging anything in there. The log file remains blank even after I played with CF for over 20 minutes.

    Ok, now for the SPDIF stuff. I turned buffer mode off (It still appears that the Sat Radio settings cannot be saved, however if you cancel out of the settings page and go back in, it does appear to have saved any changes you've just made). Now it seems that switching back and forth between XM and Mp3's works. But, it still acts like Buffer mode. What I mean is that the SPDIF Playback line still isn't being touched at all. (I'm pretty sure David is still looking into this). Even with buffer mode turned off, it's still controlling the audio switching through the Record lines of Windows mixer. If I didn't need the record line of my Line-In/Mic, this wouldn't be a problem, but I do. Post #117 of this thread has the screenshots of all my Windows Mixer channels, should you need to look at them for reference.

    So again, I'll have to figure out the issue with CF's error.log and get that to you asap. In the meantime, here's the XM log if it helps you with anything with the audio.

    Otherwise, like I said in a previous post, the text issues are fixed... good job and thanks!

    I'm looking into the SPDIF, it should be working... I finally received some USB sound cards with SPDIF so I can set them up and try to reproduce the issue and fix it...

    The error.log not having anything written to it is not an error, it means no errors happened in Centrafuse to log...

    Well that would make sense Well then I don't think the error log would have done Scott any good prior as there weren't ever really any errors happening as far as CF was concerned.

    OK looked at the log, everything seems to be going the way it should. So, just to make sure, everything works for you when Buffer is ON, but you can't use the Buffer due to your MIC, so you want to have Buffer OFF. But when BUFFER is OFF, CF does not mute/unmute the SPDIF playback line properly, thus it will not ever let the XM audio through?

    David, just an FYI -
    It looks like evreything is good on the SatRadio end, we're calling the CF_setMixerMute() method with SDPIF as argument, just doesn't seem to be doing anything for him, if I am understanding correctly...

    TIME OUT Scott and David! Something magical has happened.

    So I get in the car this morning, fire up Centrafuse, and open my mixer as usual for testing purposes, and what the heck?! XM is working correctly with the SPDIF Playback line!!!!

    The only explanation I can come up with is that yesterday when I changed to turning Buffer Mode OFF, CF truly did not save the settings, as I mentioned in earlier posts... but then either a reboot of the pc or maybe even just a restart of CF, DID save the settings.

    XM now works exactly the way I've been wanting it to! Thanks guys!

    (I do have one more test to try... I had to rush out of the car late for work today, so I did not get to test switching between XM and mp3 this morning. I'll verify that later today).

    So it seems to me you guys just need to look into the issue with the settings not getting saved as normal.

    Scott,

    I have one final request for XM functionality. Again, on this one, I'm not sure if yours or David's area:

    Right now, the only way to stop XM audio is to either switch to other media, or close Centrafuse. Well, in most circumstances, my routine is to, while listening to XM, close CF and hibernate my pc. When I return and start up CF, XM audio automatically starts since that's what was playing when I closed CF. This is actually a great feature, BUT, sometimes I want to have control of this and tell CF that I don't want any audio at all playing when I open it. Currently, the only way to do this as far as XM audio is concerned, is to switch to mp3, then stop the mp3, then close CF. In other words, there's no manual way to stop XM audio once you're in the XM module.

    The solution? A simple Stop button for XM. This is what they have in SD. When I'm exiting SD, I hit the stop button first, and XM audio stops. Then when I return to SD, no audio is playing until I tell it what to do.

    Easy enough to code, or no?

    Scott,

    Looks like there is an issue when using XM in buffered mode, and another user verified in another thread that they have it too: When listening in buffered mode, after a few minutes (maybe 3) the title bar on the top left of the screen changes to "Buffered Audio, " and it will not change back to the name of the song unless you change the channel, then change it back to the station you were on. After that, another 3 mins goes by, and same thing all over again.

    I assume you need a log. I'll get you one as soon as I get back to the car.
