  • Arghhh WTF!

    Ok, I got the wife a backup camera for xmas....

    Tongiht I figured its still reasonable temp wise outside, so I would pull the dash apart and isntall it. Get the dash apart, and plug into the RCA jack, power up the camera... NOTHING...

    Now somehwere I read the Lilliput 809GL-80NP/C/T had backup camera function... so I took this to mean that when an RCA input was powered, it would switch to it.

    WRONG!!!!!!!!!

    ok... so lets put it back together and worry about it later... No big deal...

    WRONG AGAIN!!

    somehow, unplugging the GPS, and plugging it back in.... RESET SD back to original settings!! This is the SECOND time this has happened. I am ROYALLY ****ed, because when it has done it both times... it messes up the Nav, with a 'parameter not found' or some bull**** message.

    The last time, I had to format the drive and start OVER. I am so not impressed.

    Please... anyone have any ideas to save my all that work AGAIN????

    This is a known bug in SD with no known solution... really sorry to say.

    Good luck getting any help on it from powers that be. We've reported this several times in other threads, but they can't fix anything that's not consistently reprduceable.

      I almost wonder if it happens any time you make a hardware change.... I unplugged my silabs...

        It is so sporadic that there is NO telling what causes it. I'll sometimes make a simple change in settings (i.e. to turn off the song name banner) and bam, SD crashes and when you restart it, Setup Wizard.

        Absolutely unbelievable.

          Do you get the 'Parameter Incorrect' message in NAV?

            I've never seen such a message.

              I have seen it.. and its due to the satelite maps that got messes up somehow.. turning off that display made it work for me and others.. alternately you can delete the cache of images already downloaded

                I am not using the Sat display (nor have I at all since the last install).

                It even does this when trying to use the simtext file, as well as with no GPS. At least with no GPS, it doesnt go into a lockup loop you cant get out of....

                  I've twice had a similar problem, resulting in a similar "paramater not found" error. The only solution was to reinstall SD. Now I'm vetting out hardwar issues again that I had resolved in the previous install, and a whole new set of problems...

                  It's getting frustrating.

                      That's the joy of trying to support a nearly infinite number of hardware combinations that are all supposedly compatible. I personally have never had StreetDeck crash requiring a reinstall and I have been a user since before it was called StreetDeck or this forum existed (a coincidence that Chuck drives a G35 coupe helped). I did quickly learn to adopt the exact same hardware platform that they were using for testing (a MB896 motherboard - at the time that's what it was anyway).

                      To the OP, the Xenarc 700TSV does have this functionality - not sure that helps you out but perhaps you could ask Lilliput about their claim.

                      In terms of protecting a good SD install, using something like Norton Ghost and keeping an image offline (i.e. backup), seems like a prudent thing to do given the history.
