    i use a mII12000 and it works on it. I mean after the first load FI just fly. Only problem I see is if u go into a music or video folder that is large and i try to cache that and it takes a bit of time. But beside that its very usable on my system. Only thing about it is that the gps embed of Ig4. it still has the title menu.

    CDR if only we were able to set the size of the gps screen that would be great. gps on the small screen with IG4 is just hard to see.

    Great software keep up the good work m8

    Good lord!

    So simple, so clean.

    How...........................refreshing!


    Still messing around with configurations and changes, but looks nice so far.

    I might just leave rr if this developes like it seems............

    A few notes for NA use:

    IG 4 support required
    HD radio support required
    I'll see what else I can come up with (only been using it for 10 mins now!)

    Seems I'll have to check out digitalcar.uk..........................haven't been there in a while but you guys have been busy!

    ***EDIT*****

    Arghh. Fell on my own sword! IG4 embeds fine when defined correctly. More real estate on the page would be better though, and a full screen button!

    I tried reducing hardware acceleration but nothing new. I think you're right with unichrome graphics limits.
    Soon I'll change my MB but I'm still confused on how to choose the new hardware. I sometimes spend hours parked watching movies or just listening to music so I need a extremely low consumption system.
    I'm looking at the INTEL D201GLY2 mini ITX Mainboard which I can easily buy in germany but not sure about performances. Suggestions are welcome!

    Nice. What are your future plans for features? Sat radio, HD radio, EQ?

    I loaded this up last week and was very impressed. Like all of your work it's very functional, visually appealing, professional, and most importantly it works well. My only question is....how do you get a full album to play? So far I can only get one song to play at a time. Finally, as a suggestion, CaveLive has a very nice main screen with a spectrum EQ visualization, I'd love to see something like that as a main screen....having a main screen like that just looks nice while the system is unattended and music is playing.

    how many are you trying to load ? I know it has a few problems on large ammount.. ie takes about 3mins on 30gig's worth.. but if it takes longer then its more likely your mp3 headers are croupt in your mp3's. There are free mp3 tag fix programs out there.. just download one of them and run it though your collection. windows media player doesnt like broken tags.

    I do intend to improve playlists and should solve the exit / startup when using BIG playlists. The Frontend is coded on windows media player 11, so it may help some of you if you upgrade to that.

    Release 1.0 will be this week sometime over on the freedrive website.

    cheers guys for all the good comments and suggetions. I do take them on board and will do things like make the gps screen bigger etc..

    thumbs up for the great product! if development goes on that fast, we'll have a wonderful media center, that even does our housework, within the next month )

    i don't know if it has been answered before: how can i let it run in 800x480? changing resolution in skin files (as the rem line claims ) is of no use ...

    Hi fella, just set fullscreen=true in the fi.ini and leave the skin.ini alone. It will then adopt to fullscreen mode which will be whatever your res is.. ie.. 800 x 480. In the next release however I have also added showwidth , showheight in the skin.ini so you will also be able to set it there. This will be needed when running more than one screen.. ie.. 1600 x 600 (2 screens side by side)
