  • Can't find answer to XM question

    I know I found the answer to this at one time, but I can't for the life of me find it again. I'll be listening to the XM radio, then change to mp3. When I change back, the XM radio always goes back to channel 1. The same thing happens when I turn the truck off, then back on. How do I make it retain the last channel? I tried setting rrconfig/music/page 2/music modes/resume mode, but none of the options worked. Also, I can't get my radio to work. I set rrconfig/radio to Cinergy (which is what I think I have), but it still doesn't work. Thanks for any help!

    Do you have the XMD wired to 12V and ACC. Mine drops last channel memory only when it loses the 12V constant.

      Yeah, I do. I made sure to do that so I wouldn't have any problems. I know its probably just a simple setting, and that's what's driving me crazy!

        Mine does the same. It tunes to the top channel in the XMcache.ini file. I get around this by moving my favorite channel to the top of the list. It is not a 100% fix but it keeps it from going to preview every time.

          Thanks

          I guess that would be better than nothing. At least I wouldn't have to listen to the preview stuff. Sure wish there was a better solution. Thanks for you input!

            Caused another issue

            I tried updating the XMcache file to put my most listened to channel on top. Now, though, all I'm getting when I press the XM button is a lot of weird symbols. All of my favorites are the same way. I'm not sure what has happened. I made a copy of the original file before I edited it. When I tried restoring the original, it still did the same thing. Also, while I'm here, I'm having a problem with video causing RR to crash. I have the latest version of RR, installed Winamp 2.95, have rrconfig set to look at media player classic. when I push the video button, though, it freezes up RR, and I have to hit cntl+alt+del to get out of it. I tried deleting the locatezip.dll file, but I couldn't find it. Any other ideas? Thanks for any input!

              Do you mean ziplocator.DLL?

                  Check for a file "xmfavs.ini" in your RR Root directory, if it exists edit it with notepad and put your favorite channel number as the first line of the file and save. You could also set the file attributes to read only to preserve it from being overwritten.

                    That didn't seem to work either. When I open that file, it has 1 on the first line. Then on the second line, it has my favorites list name along with all of my favorite channels. I tried deleting the 1, moving one of my favorites to its place, everything. No matter what I do, it continues to revert to being on the preview channel until I manually press the XM button. Once I do that, it goes to my favorites, and the last channel I was on. Don't know what else to try. Thanks for the responses!

                      iGuidance question

                      I decided not to start a new thread, just add on to this one. I have set up gps in rrconfig for iGuidance 4. I have external checked, the path set to where iGuidance is, IG Native checked and the GPS port correct. When I go to iGiuidance in RR with the Digitalfx 3.0, though, it says "searching for GPS signal". If I close out of RR, and open iGuidance on its own, it works fine. Any suggestions?

                        Aerotight31 same thing here..

                        The thing is probably RR is using that port for its gauge page, and Iguidance doesn't seem to talk to the GPS. Just change the com port on RRconfig to a random port and it works great.

                          O.K. Last and final possible solution that comes to mind:

                          Flip-flop your power cables, i.e., connect the 12V constant to the ACC line and the ACC to the Constant input. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I vaguely remember something with the wrong color wires, don't remember if it was XM or not now, but try it.

                            Thank yous all around

                            I think that I FINALLY have all my issues fixed. rgarjr, you're suggestion worked perfectly. I never would have thought that changing the gps com port to some random number would work. My GPS com port is supposed to be 1, but I changed it to 5, and now it works perfectly. GizmoQ, I tried changing the xmfavs.ini again like fixerofallthing suggested, and it worked this time. I erased the 1 from the first line, made the favorites name and numbers the only line, moved my most listened to channel to the front, and that fixed it. Thanks for all the help and suggestions!
