  • NEW RR Feature on its way

    I want to tell everyone about this new feature in the next release of RR (actually avail now to testers)

    I have wanted to to this for some time, it was on my list of things to do with rr...

    Dynamic Radio Skins

    so..

    if you have your radio set to say Silabs
    RR will load: "radio_player_silabs.skin
    "

    if you have your radio set to say HDRadio
    RR will load: "radio_player_hdradio.skin
    "

    if you have your radio set to say Venice5
    RR will load: "radio_player_venice5.skin
    "

    and so on...

    and of course, if you dont have the new dynamic radio skin file
    present in your skin, it will load the regular "radio_player.skin"


    this will allow a single SKIN, to have RADIO SPECIFIC skin files and images
    to better support different hardware, because HDRadio is nothing like say venice5


    I should have done this LONG ago.. i know...

    And in testing, it is working PERFECTLY! Until this was done, the only way to do it was to have multiple radio skins that the user had to copy into place for whatever radio they were using. This makes things a LOT easier!

              yes, we did, but that is too generic looking, not to mention complicated, you now can make radio specific skins for each type of radio, in a single skin, the look can be completely different for each radio...

                  So this is in the August release then?

                  I've got a DAB/FM unit coming from CB this week and I'm currently modding my Silabs skin for it, am I correct that the skin name for that would be "radio_player_venice7M.skin"?

                  Comment


                  • #10
                    yes, infact, in aug is a radio_player_venice7m.skin for carwings dynamic lite
                    you should look at for reference

                    venice7m is not like ANY of the other radios
                    1. it uses an embedded window (LCD)
                    2. no data is provided (ie, tags)

                    but it does function well, and sounds great

                    i just made some tweaks to it last night, if you would like the NEWEST
                    PM me, and ill tell you where to get

                      So after the SVN update I got in email this morning:

                      venice7m visable name changed to "Ultimate Computer DAB / FM" (by request of supplier[not creator])

                      What does the skin name now need to be? (as we know the "/" will of course not work in a file name)

                        Excellent, cheers. It's good to have a working skin to look at, and it looks like I'll need to spend some time on my 'work in progress'.

                        Looks like a small set of commands, compared to the Silabs anyway. Does the FM part of the Venice7 have RDS functions? I know the guy is working on a multiplexer for it.

                          the venice 7 has RDS
                          but NO data is provided
                          you have to understand how the Venice7 works

                            I'm getting a 'Radio not configured' error message when the config is set to Venice7M. That's with both my skin and Carwings. August edition of RR. Any ideas?
