      just installed, loving it, this works no crashing so far, but i'll see what i can break.

      suggestion: Volume maybe increase/decrease by 2 or 4 instead of 1? I remember the old version was similar.


      Cool Feature, maybe for later:
      Elise Media Center (old version, youtube'able) had this built in, that the visual was displayed in the background of menus and what-not. The only thing that reminded me of this was/is your current background. I know it may be cpu/PC intensive, pending vis chosen and pc specs. maybe an option or switch in settings.ini

      no bugs so far, good work on the exit menu

      EDIT: sorry i cant give more feedback on this release, i dont use the radio feature

          on another note...

          Alpha 4 is in coding now and I am looking at adding GPS embedding. Shouldn't take too long as I've already done a bit of coding on it ready :-) I've also been offered a loan of a DAB radio so I intend to do that once it arrives.

          It's a shame I've lost the source to the original freeice as this would moved things on alot faster.. O well

            I tried this out on my desktop PC ( 6 core amd cpu, 9800gt, 4gb 1333 ram to see how smooth it runs. Man so far so good this thing starts up immidiatly. I'm really wanting to use this as my front end when I start building my car PC. Just the only thing is I have a question, are you going to add Bluetooth / control over cell phones? That's one of the main features I'm looking for =]

              If you hold the volume buttons they increase by 5... is this not what your after?

                Yes this is something I really want to add.. once I've finished with the GPS / Gallery / DAB / Twitter / RSS Feed bits then this is on the cards.. unsure just how this is going to be done as yet as I might need to buy a SDK but we shall see.

                thanks for your other comments

                      I've coded in quite a few hold the buttons down.. they work on;
                      Volume buttons - increase / decrease by 5
                      Music Next / Prev - Fast forward / Rewind through the song
                      Radio Presets - Will save the current freq / name to the preset you press

                      On the media browser screen if you press and hold the song it only loads that song onto the playlist (without clearing it). If you press and hold a folder it loads all the songs in that folder and all songs in its sub folders. So if you have all your albums in a folder called music and you press and hold the music folder it can load thousands of songs in one go. (I've only got 997 but it worked quite quickly :-) )

                      I think you already knew that anyway..l but for those that didn't it might help :-) I want to add a firstrun config / tips screen so people can get to grips quicker with it.

                      anyway.. back to coding.. lol

                          Thanks fella..

                          Just been playing with GPS embedding. I've managed to find a copy of Destinator 9 with UK maps, got it embedding nice now. Just need to tidy up the skin.
