I just found some code that was increasing the start time a lot... The email plugin was causing a lot of it, but it was others as well...
the startup time will be decreased in the next update 1.46 which I plan to release later today with the WiFi fix as well, and others posted...
Boot Drive is running EWF so nothing has changed. My centrafuse and media is on D which is the only writable drive.
My system boots in under 10 seconds to windows. Then i wait 40 odd seconds for Centrafuse.
Glad to here you made some changes. I will give that a shot then report back..
I havent bothered installing 1.45 yet, but I did notice in 1.44 that the XM buffer would freak out after 10+ minutes of playing. I had it playing 'live', but after 10 min it would start to jump and I could also see the time indicator jump from live to 24:58 or something. As it stuttered, I could see the time/live display flash.
If i left XM and entered media, it would be okay, but then on occasion I would notice the regular audio exhibiting similar behavior. I didnt notice the time skip, but I could hear it stutter occasionally. Regular MP3 audio was stuttering!
And perhaps another related issue...
I dont know if I mentioned it before (along with the radio plugin being muted entirely) or if it was known, but almost everytime I resume from hibernation the buffered music is playing in the background with the media that is currently playing. When you leave media and enter XM, it would correct and play only media. However, if you left XM and messed around with any other functions in CF and then clicked back into XM, it would pause. No audio at all.
In general the 1.44 release had a lot of foundational audio/buffer issues that I noticed.
Have these been adressed in the 1.45 and 1.46 releases?
Nice changes to the GPS skin, but sorry to see still no "Home" button.
This is for me the most commonly chosen destination, making up just under half my trips. In the new skin it's actually got further away from the front screen, with the "Favorites" directory now on page 2 of the Nav menu meaning it's even more presses than before (6 presses!)
Great work on the big speed indicator, but for me an easy to find one or two button press "Home" is the dealbreaker. Without this my spouse will not tolerate a swap from tomtom to centrafuse.
Perhaps the POI buttons could have a user defined element?
I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.
