  • XM not resuming after hibernation.

    XM will not resume after hibernation. If I close RR and then reopen XM will work fine. I'm using a XM Direct with a serial to USB convertor.

    I'm sure there is something simple that i'm not doing. I have searched and found nothing.

    Have you tried it without the serial to usb converter?

      Many CHEAP USB-Serial adapters have issues with hibernation. I have two in the car and they work fine, but I had to get rid of an older one I had that did not do well with it. I suggest you plug the XMD on the NATIVE Serial port of your Mother Board -- Try it out, if it works with hibernation (direct on the Mobo) then you know its your USB adapter causing problems. If that's the case, you can try adding this to RR.INI (but then it might not hibernate at all):

          I've never seen the issue on a direct serial port.
          1-Verify that you don't have XMPCR checked/unchecked according to your device.
          2-Verify that the XMD (if used) is being powered by the PSU (and not the battery directly).
          3-Pay attention and verify if you receive garbage and/or commands fail -- this would be an indication of a bad cable.

          Other than that, you can try the "XMRESET" command after resuming from hibernation.

            I will try what you suggested. My XMD unit is not ran off the battery but is ran off a seperate Opus. I have an Opus 150 which powers my main computer and an Opus 80w to power my screens and periphials.

            I will try switching the power source on the XM unit. If that doesnt work what syntax should i use for the XMRESET

              Are you using the USB to XM Direct Converter sold at the MP3car store?

              I use S3 standby/STR. Anyone had any problems with that and a USB converter?

                The command

                "ONRESUME","XMRESET"

                in the Exectbl.ini file does reset the XM device, but when i resume from hibernation the XM starts playing again over the MP3 music. For instance. When i leave the XM playiing as it goes into hibernation when it comes back on both the MP3 and the XM are playing at once.

                Is there any way around this? Its better than nothing. I may inspect the cable to make sure its not just a faulty cable. One thing that is odd is that i cant get the linein plugin to work. I installed it and checked the box but when open up the XM skin I get a high pitched sound. Is there any configuration for the line in plugin?

                  You could put this in your ExecTBL.ini file and see if it works

                  "ONRESUME","BYVAR;XMSETRESET;<<XMRESET”

                  “AUDIO","LOAD;audio_player.skin||SETVAR;XMSETRESET ;0”

                  “XM","LOAD;XM.skin||SETVAR;XMSETRESET;1”


                  Add this to all other players
                  ||SETVAR;XMSETRESET;0

                    Chuck, thanks for your mastery of skills o wise one.

                    I havent tried this but i see what your doing. This should fix the problem, I will give it a try and see what happens.

                    I do have some development though on my situation. JCDillin suggested i check the wiring of the cable. I remember i had some issues with the cable in the beggining (swapped data lines). SO i looked at it and the cable ground wasn;t grounded to the db9 connector. So i did this. This did clear up some white noise i was recieving so now i have crystal clear sound from the XM, however i still have the problem with the hibernation and have to use XMRESET.

                    I am going to try messing with the RR.ini a little bit more and maybe some computer specific settings and if that doesn't work i will try the code provided by chuck.

                          Don't know if anyone else tested this, but it worked perfectly for me as I was having very similar issues. XMD plugged into the native serial port. XM would not resume after hibernation. However all I had to do was close road runner and open it back up to get it working... Now I don't have to do that.

                          Only drawback, XM resumes on the preview channel, however just hit play and the last station is already highlighted for you.

                          Thanks for the fix Chuck!

                              The XM cables seem to go bad pretty often. At least in my own experience. I was making my own cables using old Mac printer cables and RS232 plugs I picked up at radio shack. The printer cables I bought used on ebay, could be half the problem maybe.
                              Anyway, if anyone else has the same problems with these cable tap in and let us know.
                              Maybe we need to use better cables?
