nigel, one thing is for sure DONT use that monitor setting of your drivers(control panel suff)
for this, if he isnt doing a wav capture, its just a simple mute / unmute of the mixer input (playback side)
oh man, i just looked at the code... it is doing capture!!!
prob unessassary, and it looks like its own vs CFs BASS engine
prob not a good idea too
lots of unsafe(unmanaged) code in the .net dll
and lots of icky mixer code
again CF should be managing the audio
unless im missing something, but i see a lot of code with wavein capture
and mixer stuff
now... i did look at the plugin for the 1st time today :)
i am at a complete loss, why this plugin isnt using what CF has already has...
(a quick look at andy's code for v5, he is using CFs audio engine, good job)
and i have a major issue with it storing data in HKLM!!!
this a GENERAL VIOLATION of windows programming (UAC will virtualize and prob cause issues on restoring data)
not to mention, that CF establishes that USER data is to be stored in .xml files
which i like...
the only registry access to save USER data that should be allowed
is in HKCU
course with this i see NO reason to store ANY data in the registry
now of course someone will say turn off UAC, and thats prob fine for carpc
but in general if the program is written after vistas release, the programmer should know
that its wrong to store USER data in HKLM (hense the name LOCAL MACHINE)
this isnt the only program in the would to have this violation, it just annoys me
now doing actuall tests
my FM presets do stick (UAC OFF win7)
(no idea how to delete one, other than registry edit)
now my audio, doesnt work... i assume one tested this on win7
i have the correct record and correct playback device set up
(or so it says)
when i set it in the advanced settings it works, but exit of CF
and restart CF, no audio...
i did see the tuner do some off/on/off/on stuff
cant get that to happen again
i know this, the tuner should be on when i start CF and never turn off till im done with CF! and there should be no button for power! at least not exposed
Currently the only way that I have to get it working is to use control panel. Setting an audio input to 'monitor' mode is not something that will survive a reboot either. I wish I could have gotten hold of the code or a spec sheet for the v7. I could have re-written it by now... I guess the same goes for you!
It makes no sense what so ever to roll your own audio mixer code when cf already has what you need.
Sounds like Andy maybe has something coming for the v7 maybe that will be better.
In my video you'll note that cf gets very unresponsive the first time I press the voice command button (when all the audio noise occurs) maybe this is a pointer to the causer.
I still have high CPU usage when the plugin is running normally. Maybe this is due to the use of 'audio capture' in the code rather than simply controlling the mixer directly?
I still have some confidence that Craig's man will sort it in the end.
Update: Quick video showing the radio switching on/off forever:- [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkhgPTC1ALY[/media] (with latest plugin). Looks like missmatch between radio state and CF plugin. Is the power thing just a toggle, ie is there not a descrete 'on' and 'off' command.
Couple of more videos, one showing the tripplexer i'm using for DAB/FM aerials at the same time:
And another demonstrating the plugin failing to store DAB presets (they're gone if I restart CF)
New iPhone 4 is years ahead of all the WinMo phones I have suffered with for too long!! Just a shame that it wont let me upload to you tube in HD. Its up to me what I use my data allocation for, not apple and not three mobile!!
That will not work for me. I am using DFX4 and also have tried Carwings. When I press << or >> and hold these buttons the radio just jumps few steps, mostly it jumps just one step and stops even if there is nothing there.

the carwings_dynamic_lite does
and holding of the >> or << buttons, puts the unit into SCAN
maybe u got some wierd touch screen drivers that are breaking HOLD
when in doubt use my dab_master.exe program....
thats the reference
here is latest version for all to play with
Well the dfx4 doesnt have venice7 skin so I made one my self. :whistle:

hehe, well its not the commands going out.... it should say "scanning...." and stop when it finds a signal...
actually its a SEEK by my definition
I've come across a slight problem.
In Centrafuse when I manually type in a radio station (eg: 96.1), as soon as I click the number 6 my GMPC Rebellium launches and Garmin keyboard pops up.
Anyone seen this issue before, or know what might be causing it?
I'm still getting my ear-blasting when the PC starts up even with the new plugin ... its got beyond annoying and the radio is unplugged now. I'll try andy's software and see what happens.
