  • volume level on resume from hibernate

    sometimes when I resume from hibernate the volume level in the mixer for whatever I'm using i.e. digital in for Sirius, or winamp for music is all the way down. What would lower the volume on these things when I resume from hibernate? I tried "roadrunner is aware of hibernate etc etc" in the config tool and it really doesn't seem to affect anything.

    thanks

    try turning off the fade in volume on resume setting in RRConfig. It fixed it for me.

        RR raises the volume of winamp from 0 up to where it was previously. you can actually watch winamps vol slider go up (if the winamp window is visible). you may also try disabling volume control (Preferences>output plugins>Directsound>configure>Other>Volume Control) on the winamp side of things, and it might make winamp locked into full (100%) volume at all times.

          DONT USE VOLUME FADE!!!! its conceptually bugged... would need a complete rewrite of audio management in RR

          fadeinvolume=false

          UNLESS!
          you are using winamp FOR ALL AUDIO MANAGEMENT
          ie. all sources use winamp, like XM, Sirius, HD and etc. must use the WINAMP LINE IN PLUGIN
          and NOT the Windows mixer
          THEN fade would be OK

            Mitch,
            Do you know why it works sometimes but not others? I don't mind turning it off, but I do enjoy the effect. Thanks!

              I think it has something to do with not getting focus on the winamp window for long enough to issue the fade=in command. It switches back to RR focus to early, in some cases. But thats only a guess based on what I have observed.

                yes... i know exactly why it doesnt work...
                hard to explain... i would rewrite it if it was easy...
                its because how audio is managed in RR all together
                some audio is MIXER managed, and MP3s are WINAMP managed
                prob should all be dumped, for say a single audio system, like BASS Audio Library
                but if u use winamp for EVERYTHING (XM, HD, Sirius) and RR not touching the mixer for volume... it might work... its also tied to the fact that RR resumes last source as MP3 (now thats fixed in my version)

                also the volume isnt tracked by RR, it assumed to be in winamp... and winamp volume 0-255 has NOTHING to do win MIXER VOLUMES 0 -65535, so i see the mixer volumes get so messed up

                just dont use it

                audio VOLUME should be managed at 1 point!! which its not

                prob could do a work around fix, the keep RR from touching the LINE IN VOLUMES
                but then they wouldnt fade up, just like i dont think it should be touching WINAMP volume, volume should be controled at the OUTPUT side, not on a SOURCE
                source meaning mixer input, winamp

                not to mention VISTA audio management, which is ACTUALLY AWESOME!

                maybe a rewrite to RR to fade volume with MASTER, it might work

                i know, i dont know enough about RR, i dont use RR (im not carpc nut, hehe), but i have been deep in RR code alot lately

                  Yeah, I think taking the Hardware Abstraction Layer away in Vista was a good move, even if a lot of manufacturer's hated it. Simpler for applications. Thanks for the information.
