    Smile Dual video in 1.6

    Hi David,
    Im sure like many I have a video card, which allows me to have video on the rear screens while having the controls in the front screen. Video is full screen on the rear once i select to play a video in the front, detected by the card. Little issue i noticed is when I have two playlists loaded (one audio and other is video) and I play video, then switch to audio, the card thinks that the video is just paused, and does not revert back to clone mode. I have to either enter radio, xm, or exit to get clone.

    My question is: Is the code pausing the video and my card is not crazy, or is my card is messing up?
    Thanks for you time, my friend.

    I will look into it... I have not done much testing with dual monitor support since it was first implemented...

    If we had a 2nd sound card (or even a single card with 4-speaker setup), could we have a video (or DVD) playing in the rear with music and nav playing up front?

    I have the same problem becuase video is paused insted of closed. But it gets even worse with SPDIF. When you change back to MP3 playback after playing a video there are no sound from the SPDIF port since the VIDEO already is occuping the SPDIF signal. The DVD playback also gives me problems because the DVD player dosent acctualy realy close.

    I tried using Radeon cards and Matrox cards, the problem is still there so the problems lies in CF. If CF closed the Video Player when MP3 or DVD was selected this problem would have been gone I guess.

    David, please take a look at this problem.

    You may have better luck with a "Dolby-Digital-LIVE" card. As I understand it, most SPDIF cards only send AC3 when playing off of a DVD and stereo PCM data otherwise. This is why you can only get 5/7.1 channel audio for game if you use the 3/4 analog ports instead of the SPDIF. A DD-Live card on the other hand will re-incode all wav output to real SPDIF including any multi-channel effects processing and mixing of multiple audio sources. Therefore, I think it might solve your problem here (as well as give you much better non-DVD audio quality/features in general).

    What do you connect your SPDIF too? Do you have a car-amp that accepts SPDIF in, or a headunit, or a 5.1 processor hide-away box, or what? Please post a link if you can.

    David: This is something I've been thinking about as well. Since we are already are installing dual monitor setup, the audio is the only problem. Is it possible to have centrefuse utilize 4 channel or even 5.1 audio cards to direct the audio to different channels. As well we are looking into 3 and 4 monitor configurations.

    I am currently testing with the Pioneer DEQ-P6600 DSP.

    You menition some Dolby Digital LIVE card. Du you have any link to this product? However, it shoudnt be a problem making this work in CF + FFDSHOW using a regular soundcard, CF just needs some changes for it to work.

    Here's a description: http://www.dolby.com/consumer/techno...olby_live.html

    Here's some products:

    I have heard that FFDSHOW can basically do this same thing as well, I was just thinking the hardware solution may be better than the software one at avoiding problems like the one CF is causing.

    what would be useful is if you could have GPS audible commands output to a seperate channel. for example in my parents Toyota prius there is a 600 watt speaker system plus an independent speaker dedicated to reading outloud voice commands for the GPS navigation, the volume control for the gps voice is seperate than the music audio volume. this feature is very nice! if you could implememnt it so the gps just outputs directions to some user controllable channel it would be huge because it would allow someone like me witha creative surround sound card to be able to easily control media volume independent of my gps.
