    People who create work like this are usually perfectionist right? So I did come across some bugs. 1) When I am in GPS mode with Iguidance v3.0, its seems that the shuffle button doesn't work. When a song finishes it just stops and I have to hit the next arrow key at the top of the screen and it just plays the next song in line. 2) It appears sometimes that the flash that shows the song artist & title gets stuck in this manner: it will keep flashing one song name over and over even though i am moving on during shuffle, clicking another song, or moving to a video file. Also sometimes the flash doesn't show up at all.

    I drive about 2 hrs everyday so I like using the shuffle button alot. The shuffle is a better improvement over MI version 3 in that it doesn;t play the same couple of songs over and over. However, it seems that the same order of songs are being played after ever session. For example, song A, B, C, D, E is shuffle to B, C, D, A, E. So everytime I start up the car to go somewhere and i use the shuffle option, it will always be songs B, C, D, A, E. Which means that it will always go to the top of the order and work its way down, so this will be hard to go through your entire collection of songs if your collection is big. It defeats the purpose of having a shuffle option if it plays the same order everytime. I would definitely like to have a change of songs after each session. Is there something wrong with my install or this was how it was design? Can it be programmed in such a way that the shuffle option gives a different order everytime you press the shuffle button.

    Once again thanks for the frontend and any advice you can give. I hope that I didn't sound too whiny and unappreciative. My motive is just give input and make the frontend better.
    Thanks for the report. The new shuffle code creates a list of numbers derived from the amount of files it finds, then dumps the number with no duplicates into this list then plays the tracks accordingly, its kind of clunky, but it works better than the old shuffle, but again the code is ugly. I dont think that i tied the buttons on gps module into the shuffle code, I figured that most folks who use shuffle, wouldnt hit the next or previous buttons very often or if they did they only hit it once or twice, when in gps mode the media module is in a hidden state and the code that it would take to tie those buttons into the shuffle code might bring the module into a showing state, which would cause problems, so i think for now Im gonna leave that out. Regarding the song title splash screen, I ran into some problems with it, its a cool feature, but as you said sometimes it hangs or shows the wrong song title on it. This is actually caused by a weak video card. Unfortunately the older via boards are gonna have this problem and lower end machines with integrated video that dont have much video memory.

    Thanks for the explanation Red. Do you think it is possible to make this list of numbers have a different random order every time the shuffle button is hit? Or is this very difficult to code?

    Actually the filelist triggers it to regenerate the list of numbers every time that a folder is clicked on, or every time it opens the module, basically this is on the activate and the item click events.

    Your shuffle do have issue. If shuffle is turn on it wont change track by itself. it just stuck on the same track when it end and nothing plays unless u click next track.

    I am also experiencing the same problem on videos, but not music mp3s. Kinda annoying, especially when using GPS.

    Another problem is shuffle doesn't work when in GPS module. Just forwards to the next track. Believe, this issue existed in the previous version.

    well maybe its me but does the splash screen for song titles only work when i click on a new song or video. it does not work when going to next song on its own..
    steps i took to recreate
    open mi > media > choose file > splash screen > file plays > use slider to fast forward to almost end of file playing. > song ends > no splash screen > next file starts.
    any one else?
