    It crashes when viewing trying to view a video file that has no codec installed. Plus if there is something in the video folder that isn't a video and you try to execute it, it crashes (which is pretty much the same as having no codec).

    I'm testing the program on my home PC with an ATI AIW 9800. If I Alt-Tab out and back in, the video is blank.... but only sometimes. Nothing serious as normally I wouldn't do an Alt-Tab with a touch screen.

    Yeah but that also happens if something pops up over the video once you click it away there is a black spot in the video.

    If I try to switch frmo DVD to MP3 (while DVD is playing), I can't start MP3's. It just keeps playing .5 seconds of mp3 audio and loops it. There is no way to stop the DVD except for shutting MMC down. (well, ok... Pause works but that's the only option)

    The slider doesn't work in DVD mode.

    nice speed I have go agree.

    As for comments/bugs... That "seek" bar on the bottom that you can use to select any part of a song.. shouldn't that move as the song plays? Mine doesn't.

    The scrolling song title, song time, etc in the top/middle look really nice, but they could be bigger. And perhaps have it so that the song title loops back quicker. In other words, it's just blank for too long right now after the song title has left the left side of the screen.

    Perhaps make those up/down arrows to scroll up and down on the list bigger, or make it user adjustable?

    Also, what about some setup stuff? I know you can select media directories at teh beginning when you install, but is there anythign else?

    Also, when shuffle is on, forward goes to some random track, but backwards seems to just go back one track, as if shuffle was off. Is this expected?

    Sorry if these questions have been asked/answered already, I couldn't find them.

    Oh and the visuals are very nice... very fast and easy.

    Overall a very nice package, just some small polishing here and there and we may have a winner.

    ok scratch what I said about the seek bar... its working now.. dunno why it wasn't before?

    Also the shuffle or random algorithm has issues... specifically, if you have a playlist of 3 songs, pressing next or prev will keep only getting you the first song.

    sorry don't mean to be such a post whoring *****, but i think it'd be nice to make it so that if there was a setup portion, you could make keyboard buttons map to certain functions... would help for people that want to use steering wheel controls, etc.

    thanks for a great product!

    The reason Frodo/MediaCAR are so nice is because of all the keyboard shortcuts...if you guys could add that option that would be wonderful.
    hope everything goes well for you guys with selling carputers....and cant wait to have mmc that is ready for use in mah car

    Going back in video mode pops up the error dialog box asking to continue or quit.
