    Thanks for sharing TBM

    It does look much nicer, infact Im using your skin and logos for testing now.

    I have the picture to display in STRETCH MODE, thats the reason why the logo look ugly when it is not at the right aspect ratio. I can change the the logo to diplay as it is rather that stretch it on the display window. I think it would be better that way?

    As is, would be better!
    Makes it easier to add logos without the need to touch up anything.
    I do not mind creating them 140 square to begin with, though.
    Or double/quadruple the view area size to get a crisp full screen version as well.

    Updated DLL :

    Just done the DAB character sets to UNICODE conversion. Its taking a long time and I might have missed or wrongly converted some characters. It look ok but I will need to verify it with other source, the EBU document is not very clear. Anyway this should fix the scandinavian characters. Let me know if its working because I cant test to see if its working correctly or not.

    You can test/query it for which mode it's in by simulating keypress sequences and reading the responses from the display.

    If you send Menu button, line1 will reply with the current band (FM/DAB). Remember to turn menu back off after doing this test.

    You can get all the info you need from this module by "simulating a user" and reading the responses from the display. Just be aware that the display lines can update at different intervals (not in sync) so make sure that the code can detect and handle this.
    Failure is not an option...

    I can confirm that the scandinavian characters זרו is now working. Thank you very much ibf.

    I do not get hibernation to work. If I hibernate when the radio is playing the radio will play after resume but it is no longer possible to control the radio. I have to restart the machine to get it to work again. The only way to get it working is to close Centrafuse before hibernation. This is probably possible to do in an automated way. It seems like the plugin do not set up/renew the serial connection after hibernation.

    Can anyone confirm that they have managed to get hibernation to work with the CF plugin. In my setup I have the same problem with the standalone application

    Thanks for the suggestion Borte, yes it would work and this is exactly what I wanted to do but then realise it may not work with the other module who have an updated firmware. I think this is the reason why some members are having problems with CB's plugin but not much with the RR. Mitch did the plugin exactly how the module was intended to be used and not tried to be ambitious.

    When you get this error, go to the plugin setup, select no comport and then reselect the radio comport. It should re initialise the comport. If this work then yes I guess the comport need resetting on resume. The plugin is not doing anything on hibernate/standby/resume as soon as it receive the power it would switch back on its last state, the audio is restarted by CF itself. So no need for the plugin to do anything else.

    Good the hear the characters are working now.
