    The reason why the fonts are messed up is because they are set at a size that will fit a 800x600 screen. The problem arises because FSRX does not resize dynamically and it will never look perfect in all display modes of CF. You can go into the xml file of the skin of FSRX and make the font smaller to get it to fit and be useable but it won't be perfect.

    FSRXM is way too buggy, and simply not an acceptable XM option. Check out how Guino wrote simple XM control into RoadRunner, which never crashes, and is a million times easier to use. (with many, many more configurable favorites) This implementation of XM really should be prefered over Frodo's

    Just build your own out of my service, it isn't buggy.

    I haven't found FSRXM to be buggy; I'm just having a hard time making it look right in CF1.4. FSRXM simply takes up more real estate than is available in CF.

    One thing I have noticed is that once I launch FSRXM in CF I can't get it to stop playing XM - even if I exit FSRXM and CF. There is no way to turn it off unless I turn off the machine (The process doesn't show in task manager and rebooting doesn't help). I must actually turn off my computer to get XM to stop playing. Frodo, any idea what's going on?

    By the way, Frodo, thanks for your hard work on FSRXM. If I can get the fonts to work, it will be my XM solution until the CF XM plugin becomes available.

    Make sure that in the external apps xml file for CF, you have muteonexit set to true. This will mute the line in when you select a function in CF other than XM.

    Sorry Frodo, I meant to say that INTEGRATING your program with CF is buggy (does not correctly return from hibernation)

    But i do personally prefer the XM integration in Guino's RR which uses Lists instead of buttons.

    I've been playing around a bit and FSRX embeds very well in CF using 800x600 resolution. That's the same resolution my new Xenarc 7" uses so things are looking good. No need to play with fonts.

    As for hibernation, I can't even get my computer to hibernate if my XMPCR is attached. I get a message that says that Com Port 6, the port the XMPCR is using, is preventing hibernation. The same thing happens whether I'm using FSRX or the native XMPCR software; if the XMPCR is attached my computer it will not hibernate.
