  • Problem with remembering playlist

    Hi,

    I have a problem with roadrunner not remembering my playlist.

    I use winamp 5.x and the latest RR (3-7-05)
    I run an nlited xp pro, with minlogon.
    I have my shell set to "minlogon shutdown.exe" (set to rr.exe before, but it gave problems when shutting down. windows tried to restart rr (becouse it was the shell) at shutdown, whitch gave an error)
    Now i run rr.exe as an service.

    When i use my power-button, windows wants to hibernate, but "minlogon shutdown" will power down the system. Next time the computer is turned on, the playlist is empty. When i use the shutdown option from the rr menu, it does remember the playlist.

    I have tried all sort of things but nothing works.

    My car-pc is nearly finished, exept for this, and im out of ideas.

    Anyone got suggestions?

    are you using EWF/HORM ?? It is ery unusual for the playlist to be empty since it is saved to disk as soon as you load it into the audio player screen... since it's a hibernation, both Winamp and RR should keep the last state of the playlist and require no additional processing.. Now, if you're using EWF/HORM you do need to make RR "load" the playlist again from disk...

    Try this:

    1-Go into audio browser and Clear the playlist
    2-Add a 5 songs to it (that you can easily identify)
    3-Go back to the audio player/start playback
    4-hit the power button
    5-resume from hibernation (Playlist will show "empty" -- according to you)
    6-Go back to the audio browser, highlight 1 song file and click +1 (ADD 1)
    7-Return to the audio player and see if that file is the only one in the playlist or if the 5 songs you had (before hibernation) are there as well...

    This will basically tell me if the problem is with Winamp or RR...

      hey guino,

      Thanx for your fast reply!

      Currently my carpc is at my work so i cant try anything today.
      As for the EWF/HORM, i dont exactly know what it is, but if it has anything to do with my os running on a memory-card, i dont use it. Im running everything from an hd.

      Allso i dont use hibernate. minlogon cant powerdown, it only can hibernate when the powerbutton is pressed, so i use a workarond someone here on the forum made, its a program called "minlogon shutdown". It catches the hibernate "message" and cancels it before any other process receives it (it has an higher priority). It then sends a powerdown message to the system.

      I will try your steps as soon as i can and post the result.

          I've only seem that happen when Winamp Lite is used.. even so, it still works some of the time... but in this case, it is hard to tell what's wrong when using a nlite XP install.
