    Glad we have a long weekend here, I'm going to give this a whirl on my machine....from what I could see of the Alpha 7 release, its going to replace CF at this rate for me!

    Looking good, a nice fresh new design!

    Works great! I updated my carpc before heading to work last night and works like a charm. The only thing im having a problem with is the Shuffle button on the music screen. The replay button works fine. Im really enjoying this front end a lot!

    I've found a bug where if I go to hibernate with the radio on and then switch to mp3 just before hibernating, on resume both sources play.
    The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.

    Found another bug, if you have the radio on, with a satnav running - I've tried garmin and igo8, then go to hibernate on resume it hangs. Have to do a ctrl alt del to recover. It looks like the satnavs scan the serial ports before freeice and that causes the radio to go into a loop and hang.

    That's what I think anyway!?!

    The Only thing i think this frontend could use in the music area is a Playlist maker. Its hard for me to sort through 40gb's+ of music while driving lol

    Am still yet to try this version but it's looking good,

    On the playlist topic is it possible to make use of WMP's Auto playlists?

    Just downloaded Alpha 8.2 and it is simply amazing.
    The only thing I found so far is the repeat or auto-replay button. Whether it's on or off, thing still replays the entire playlist, and there is no stop button. So whenever FI is loaded, it continues from where it left off whether it was a song or a clip (the pause button works great but stopping requires an act of God :P)
    As far as I could tell, that was all I could fine.

    Great work on the Front End - It's coming along nicely.
