  • FM & XM issues

    I updated to the 12/1/2008 (thats the date I get when I run Road Runner.exe) version from the I believe 2006 version that I had before and now I cant get the XM and FM part to work. I have WinTV, and it works outside RR both the TV and the FM. The TV also works within the RR after I installed the plugin and did the necessary configuration. The FM part - the Radio skin opens and all I get FM 0.

    The XM on the other hand I have only 2 channels the Emergency and Preview channel. There is a new feature in the rrconfig under General; Page 4, MJS Gadets UAS, right now they are all N/A (Radio, XM, Sirus).

    In the "INI Extra's "I added xmtype=1 (thats the only way I could get XM to work)
    RADIO section I checked "WinTV", I checked "Allow Tunning of All Frequencies". Selected the path
    In the XM section I had to choose XM Serial = 2, I checked USE XM Cached and Tune on List Click and I made sure i had the xmchache file in the Road Runner folder. I tried both options checking and unchecking. When I check I see the channels but nothing work. I even called XM and made they reset the signal and i was told my account is GOOD from their side.

    The unfortunate part is i didnt back up my old RR folder/version. So I cant go back to it so I've been trying for a week now to make everything work and got stuck on the XM and FM radio part

    Any input will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    xmtype does nothing

    doesnt sound like you have a UAS so you shouldnt be messing with it...


    dont use xmcache, till u HAVE ALL Channels
    delete the xmcache.ini file too!

    and if you only get emergancy and prevew, your xm isnt active

        I tried deleteing xmtype at one point when i was messing with rrconfig and when did I didnt even get the preview and emergency channel.
        But I will try again and delete the xmcache.ini and remove the xmtype and see what happens.
        So from an XM part all i need to have in the rrconfig is the XM Serial port #.
        I called XM and my account is active.

        Any input about why the FM doesnt work within RR, i know it was working in the older version I had

        I will try and post my findings. I will update to the newest version too

          what type of XM device do you have ? XMPCR or an older model like it ?

          for wintv, have you tested it with the wintv radio application ? did set the path in RRconfig to the wintv radio application ?

            I have the XMPCR

            The wintv radio application works fine outside RR. I set it up to "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\WinTV\". Within RR the TV application works fine too. So should I link the path to the *.exe application. If I do so will it use the Radio skin though or will it open the application on top of Radio Skin

              I'm unsure if mitch's new XM library supports XMPCR -- I sure haven't tried it, you may have to talk to him about it.

              you need to set radiatorpath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\WinTV\ in RR.INI (same as putting that as the path setting in Wintv -- this will make RR run the wintv application in the background and control it through the skin.

                  I have my radio path set in RR.ini to the WinTV. I will still double check when i get home. So the radio had to work

                  Yes I installed the RR with the installer. I first click the Updater and got a dialog box that there is a new version and followed the instructions from there

                  I will download the XMID software from your website and see what I get

                        Similar Issues

                        So I updated RR to the same December version and now I have no XM channel/artist listings. I can't even manually add the channels to my favorites. I can navigate the channels one by one. It also shows the signal strength. I use my previous version of RR and it works fine. I used the installer. Any thoughts?

                          Thats what I was having. The problem I dont have the old version to go back too. Do you still have it? I would like to reinstall it back

                          I just downloaded Ride Runner and will reinstall it and see what happens

                            again, using that world "updated" i need it defined

                            there has been NO XM changes in sometime
                            sirius yes...

                            sobsidian, i cant tell if it works or not from your post

                            delete xmcache.ini

                            it rebuilds automaticly, if things are working right

                            when in doubt of your hardware use XM Radio Demo

                              Mitchjs,
                              I used your XMID software and my XM radio works perfect. I uninstalled the December Road Runner version and will install the Ride Runner and see if all applications will work. Right now all works outside RR

                              Thanks
