    no you cant adjust that, its the way the dsp filters are used.

    so just curious why does everyone want the front ends to resume when you load the program? I use hibernate and it starts back up exactly where it left off... what is the reason for shutting down the cpu instead of hibernating?
    For me, there is no gain by going to hibernation. With startup times under 30seconds and remote start, the system is running by the time i enter the car. Plus, no startup/shutdown controller. I just kill the power at will with pulling out the key.


    Anyways, it seems that video mode is a little spotty. It works, but at random it hangs. One such example I have is switching between videos. Sometimes, I can switch from Video 1 to Video 2 without a hitch (while video is still playing). Other times, when I click on the second video, there is some hard drive activity, and then MMC just stalls out and hangs and does nothing. This happened on both WMV and MPEG files in my case.

    Hibernation is the only choice for me.

    I've been doing a little testing on my home PC and I noticed that while playing videos the Windows screen saver still kicks in. Usually when you are running a program like Windows Media Player, the screen saver is bypassed. Could this be implemented? The screen saver is fine for playing music, but annoying when video is playing. I guess depending how you look at it, this is more of a feature request than a bug.

    No, that didn't help. Seem its the first run of the application, the first thing it asks for is to select the external audio input device. Now you might remember that with alpha rev 8 i posted the same fault. I would get the just-in-time debugger coming up after the splash screen disappears. Know at that point the selection box should appear. After it happened the first time, i rebuilt my system and the fault was still there. This was never resolved, and i believe its the same issue again. I have a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS in my system. Has anyone got this card and using MMC? I have driver version: 5.12.2.444

    Do any of the hybrid developers have the same card they could test with.

    I installed .net 2.0 beta 2 and MMC on my CarPC last night. The first run ran fine. However, after the database was built the application closed with no error. Now everytime i run it, it closes after the splash screen without a trace.
    My CarPC is based on a VIA M10000, and for now i'm using the onboard sound.

    did your car pc have mmc installed previously? because the media.xml file will stay even after uninstalling.... if this is the case delete the media.xml file and reset your paths in the config file and run it again in either case try this again.... I have a audigy 2 external sound card, however mine worked fine on the last version, i will try it on this one too.... ben is coming back monday night and will update beta 1 to clear up as many issues as we can

    Not really a solution. That doesn't answer the need to upload music from my PC's HDD or being forced to manage your music from inside your car.

    This is basically what I was thinking...

    "In addition to this, there will be a program called "AstraMac Companion". You will be able to install it on the carputer itself or any other machine that has network access to AstraMac. It'll let you manage music libraries, do advanced configuration, install skins, perform program updates and so on. " New Mac Front-End (in progress): AstraMac

    No, the install on my carpc is fresh (no previous traces of MMC or .net)
    The first paragraph of my last post was to do with my main (desktop) PC. And i had removed everything to do with MMC before installing the new version.
