    I have took the plunge and started messing around with tweaking a skin I use religiously. Is it possible to create a "shortcut" button on the start menu for such things like "queued music" or "search music" so if i set the button to go right to the keyboard for the music search, I can bypass the music module folders and go to the subfolder.

    The best way to do it (and easiest), would be to create a gesture for it....

    Settings
    General options
    Input options
    Gesturing

    Select music search module
    draw the gesture you want to use
    save

    If you have voice commands active, "search music" will get you there too.

      You think it's time to take the plunge and get a mic. rather than use the button, especially if i'm def hooking up one onevoice connection when available.

        Sorry, kinda forced my views on you there, didn't I?

        Well, if you must have a button, I would suggest you load the SD trial version on a desktop if you haven't already. Open the streetdeck development environment. Then once in there, you can select the button you want to change, or create a new one (copy/paste works), and then you can change the module it controls. It's a major pain as there are idle, highlight, select, press options on the button, so like 4 or 5 overlays for each one.
        My opinion is my own.

          Oh, oh, oh.......that's a SILLY question!

          Just for bragging rights alone (showing it to your friends), the mic is the number one thing you should have. And with one voice plugin? You KNOW the first things your friends are going to do is "Play Michael Bolton". Heck, a $10 radio shack version on the sun visor works great!

            I def want to do this. I've been contemplating it for a while, but do have some restricitons. Do you know if the griffin can be bound to set the press and hold to activate voice commands in SD?

            I just wanted to work out other options before i do add another usb.

            Some issues that have held me back:

            Adding a powered usb hub in the front. need to figure out how to fit the larger hub and inverter. Most everything is hidden under my ashtray, but it is already a tight fit. So i'm still limited for room.
            I still loose my xenarc usb touchscreen, even after running a direct extenstion cable to the computer. (this is really starting to **** me off.)

              Griffin works perfectly for that app. That is what I used before going to the iMon.

              Don't worry about usb. For now, go down to radio shack, buy the cheapest mic they have along with an extention cable, plug it into your mic in and run with it! You don't need an expensive mic for voice command. And if one voice doesn't release until July, you got plenty of time to shop and figure out configuration for a good one.
              My opinion is my own.

                k good. when i fix my touchscreen issue, i'll be requesting help on binding that to the griffin. Just curious, that function gets set in the griffin settings? How would it now to active voice command in SD? i'm assuming SD settings have to be set as well?

                  It was pretty easy to do. I know I had to add streetdeck to the griffin program file.....

                  When you get to that point, remind me and I'll hook the griffin to the laptop and repeat it.

                    Calling all SD users.

                    I figured out how to get the search music function bound to a button and have placed it on the start screen. Is there a reason why it cannot search the music unless the media player is initialized. If the first thing I do is search for a song right from start up and this is assuming that no music has began playing yet, search results come back as "nothing found" If i start playing a song and go back and do the same search, bam music is found. When I go into th music module, I do get the pop-up that says "media player initializing" so I do know that the media player has to start-up before the search works. How can I get the media player to intialize from when I double click SD in windows? or how can the search work from the moment I turn on SD.

                      I would guess it's because SD uses the WMP (windows media player) and if the player isn't started (initializing), search wouldn't work. Just a guess, but it makes sense. Try this. Open WMP, then start SD, search without initializing music and see if you get a result.

                      You also might be able to put WMP in your startup folder if the above test works.

                        That does sound right. I stopped using things in my startup folder becuase I found the whole system to load faster if i opened SD up manually. I wonder if WMP would slow down the start up?
