    Nice list there. I just wanted to know if Mini mode is going to exist? I ask cause its not listed in the Feature Spec. I know for myself, and many other around here, GPS is an application we use heavily along with playing media, and your software would have a missing touch without such a feature embedded. Other then that, great job so far.

    Oh yea, ofcourse we'd love a copy!

    I just confirmed there are no conflicts.

    Last night when I was gettin this started...the little heat sink thing got really hot...those things usualy do...so I'm guessin it was workin. It was more warm then hot....and now its not. I put a multimeter on some things inside and verified its getting power. And I also tested the connections on the cable, all is good...it has to be software or something on my pc.

    Ok, I just found every single power source on the mainboard of the XM. There are a few diff power ratings which follows below:

    12.2V
    12.2V
    12.2V
    4.5-5V
    5V
    5V
    12V
    12.2V
    5V
    8.5V

    And surounding all of these are grounds everywheres. I found an area that I can install a power LED next to where that Power connector goes. Now I just need to find that power connector.

    so I have confirmed the entire unit is working. So it MUST be in my computer.

    Ok, I really need help guys....Yesterday when I was trying to get this sucker working, and when I was locating diff power points with an LED, the little thing that is mounted to the case as a heat sink got very warm. So I dont know if that blew up, or if it is supposed to do that. Does yours get very warm on the top?

    This is ****in me off.

    Looked around a little more, looks interesting. Should be nice to have that hardware control, gives you more options.

    just a fancy way of saying Computer Enhanced Control Unit

    its power conditioning/regulating startup shutdown control through keyed power and relay control with opto inputs that all interact with MMC

    Lightbulb Doing My Job! MMC Ideas

    Well Ben pretty much bought me out, for my idea's and graphics design whenever he needs me. I have tons of idea's and thoughts going through my head that would make MMC the BEST program ever. I felt like listing them here, I am going to reserve the first 3 posts to myself for whenever I get new idea's incase I run out of room. Anything you guys think on them, please share.

    Ben knows whats up, I talk to him all the time. I can't wait to start helping out with version 2. I like the 'IDEA' of MMC, but so far its not making my heart skip. The ideas I got would.

    Setup Screen:
    And before I start using it, I MUST have something...5.1 DTS Suround. The Sound/Video/DVD Decoder on MMC isn't the best. I know you guys are atleast happy to get it working finaly. But I really sugjest, and I haven't told ben yet, use the newest WinDVD Decoder for Audio, and Video. Because listning to music on 5.1 Suround, ROCKS! I know not everyone has suround, so you guys need to build a System Setup program, so after you install it, you can select the speaker selection such as 2 Speaker Stereo, 4 Speaker Stereo, 5.1 Analog Suround, and 5.1 SPDIF Digital Suround. WideScreen, Full Screen, Color and brightness settings. Music folder, video folder, DVD/CD Drive Location. This all is a must for some of us, Especialy me, I have to have it. Didn't spend 700 bucks for a 7 Channel Digital Phoenix Gold Amp for nothin lol....5.1 Music listning rocks...

    I think skins are ok, what I dont like about them is not everyone is a big graphics nut like me. I know people would want to skin it to thier own liking. But I sugjest that Version 2 with its new engine, should look and navigate through diff menu's with extream intensity that nobody would want to skin it. A kick *** background, Nice animated buttons like the XM Satelite Radio button. Hit up your nearest Best Buy, play with some stereo's and you'll notice the FM picture shows a radio tower with radio waves flying around it and stuff like that. CD shows a cd spinning. These would make the program seem more like eye candy. Cool Factor In Effect. images must be allowed to accept diff formats. instead of just png, and GIF, even tho GIF is the best because its able to animate easily and go transparent. Transparent buttons, words and things like that are a must, they cannot have a black background around them because backgrounds are kick ***. I'm sure you've seen my chops of what MMC1 would look with transparent buttons and windows and a nice background, its nice! I think the skins should not be crap like java or stuff like that, because alot of people, most people dont know Java. IT should be simple mathematics and photoshop.

    When I was helping my new employer locate a wireless internet signal in my neighborhoods area, we got to play with GPS....and I loved it. I loved watching where I'm driving, seing nearby streets comming up. Navigation is killer, you allready know this so I dont think I should say anything on this.

    Also the navigation between browse, artist, album, cd and **** like that, it should be made more like a touchscreen in dash reciever system, not a computer. When you are in Artist Mode, it should have a lable at the top of the screen of artists called Artist, then the button you pressed to change the mode, should change to a picture that signals which mode is next. So if CD mode is next and there's allready a cd in there, it should show a CD. I can think of diff images for all the diff modes. Artist: Image of Random Person Singing (kinda a 3D Image, doesn't have to be animated), CD: should show a animated cd spinning, Album: should just show a undetailed cd case..., Browse: should show a folder. There should not be any more modes then this. Ohh, maybe All Music, That could just be shown as music notes.

    Also, no mater which listning mode your in, even in XM and FM, MP3 and CD (if you have internet on this pc and can get album info) All the info should be shown, Not just the song name, It should not scroll anything, I should look something like this:
    Artist: A Perfect Circle
    Album: Thirteenth Step
    Song: The Noose
    Time: 00:35
    Then next to this info, it should show the album cover of the actual cd. Album covers are cool, I'm sure alot of people here just like me, do not use cd's any more, except to rip into mp3 form. And seing the album cover would rock, I love that feature on MCE. You dont really have to display the song number, but in the list of songs, that will do well.
