    New XM Features for Take 4

    Here are some of the new XM features I have completed for Take 4.

    Optional Single Click.

    Hide channels on the fly.
    UnHide channels on the fly.

    20 possible on screen favorites.
    Unlimited extra favorites (through on screen menu list)

    Ability to define size of and hide columns. (#, Station, Artist, Title, Genre)

    Ability to sort by any column on the fly, ascending or descending.

    Optional alternating backcolors for playlist. (Ie row 1= brown, row 2= black)
    Optional alternating fontcolors for playlist. (Ie row 1= yellow, row 2= white)

    List saves the #, Station, and Genre on exit.
    That way, when it loads up again, only the Artist and Title
    need to be filled in again.

    Initial loading speed (especially on the XM Direct) greatly increased.

    List loading speed greatly increased.

    List jumps to selected channel on next/previous. (experimental)

    A few more features are planned, but I will not say what they
    are unless i actually get them working.

    I'm gonna fix that, but this thread is about XM features, not about interoperabilty.

    Im gonna especially like the load speed. Its kinda iritatinig now when i wanna switch from radiator to xm and back. Takes forever. This will be very nice. Good work. Any plans to mute the XM without muting the hardware and allow the xm to stay open so it doesnt have to reload when we switch back and fourth?
