    Please see the streetdeck bug tracking sub forum for the status of outstanding bugs. This was already answered there.

    The radio works fine out of the internal amp. The internal radio is hardwired to the internal amp. Streetdeck controls this, but we do not route the audio over USB to the external sound card. At this point the solution is to use an amp with high level input or use internal amp. We are still looking into other software solutions.
    My only comment to that is that it absolutely should have been documented before the G4s were sold, since it is a huge huge issue. To me, the radio is a critical feature and if I had known it wouldn't work, I definitely would not have bought the G4 (or I would have sadly not used the amp I paid a lot of money for, but if I go to the internal sound card now and have the installer rewire the audio directly to my speakers, it will cost me probably another $200 or so, not to mention the $100+ I paid for the external sound card and the extra $50 the installer questionably charged me for "hooking up" the external sound card.

    But I am glad to hear you are still looking for a software solution. If you guys do think it will be impossible to fix, I'd appreciate hearing about it sooner than later, so I can go get my car audio rewired to avoid the amp. Thanks.

    Try using the exponential volume control in the newest build. I will look into making the speech volume set to a constant level. but for now see what happens with the new build.
    I will, but also note that in the Speech control panel the speech sounds fine. For some reason it is just extremely low when played in SD.

    StreetDeck will only work for the fader and balance controls of the built in sound card. To set the fade and balance of an external sound card you have to use the utility that ships with it.
    I have set my sound card's fader control to be right in the middle, and it works perfectly fine in Winamp from all 4 speakers. But SD shows the fader set to 100% rear and no audio comes from the front speakers. Are you saying that when you use an external soundcard, you hear the front speakers in SD?


    Thanks for the new fixes that are coming, though.

I'd like to install Professional so that I get remote desktop, but currently have no way of easily doing this. I tried doing a clean install of Pro then restoring a backup I made using NTBackup, but it ended up making a bastardized version of XP since the backup came from Home.

    If the restore DVD can't do this (and is just a flat image), please ensure an updated normal Streetdeck DVD is also included when these go out to the existing customers. This would be similar to the inclusion of the base XP Home CD in the package I got.

    You might just want to try the free RealVNC software (http://www.realvnc.com/). It works pretty well.

    Streetdeck is designed this way to first confirm address and then confirm on the map the desired route. You can disable the confirmation of hte route in navigation settings.
    I don't see any option in Navigation Settings (I scrolled to the bottom of the list of options) or the Navigation Module to disable any confirmation.

    But the voice recognition doesn't work at all for me. I tried saying the word "radio" over and over, and nothing happened.
    Ah... I see that if I do the /\ screen gesture, it will accept my next voice command. But is there a way to have voice recognition on all the time (preferably with me initiating each command with a pre-command such as "voice command")?


    Thanks,
    John

    The option is 3rd from the bottom. Uncheck “Show the route after calculating it” in navigation settings.

    The voice interface is set with a very high recognition sensitivity so it will attempt to recognize very noisy audio. Unfortunatly, noisy audio is typical in the car from engine noise, AC, open windows, etc and using it with high sensitivity is the only way to get halfway decent recognition, your still going to need a good microphone above a beyond this to really have it work well when driving though. Because of this, if it set to always be listening, particularly when you have audio playing in the background too, you will get alot of false recognition and it will just start doing stuff apparently randomly. What it comes down to is that you really need a buttn to mute the background audio and limit the time that it attempts recognition at.

    The restore DVD is basically an automated ghost image. It will restore the OS, drivers, etc to factory defaults.

    There should be an install DVD for StreetDeck too. You should contact the store if you can't do what you want to do after getting it.

    Why can't registered users download these in ISO form right now? There should be a more structured support site for the G4 and Streetdeck. Phone and snail mail support have been a thing of the past for many years now for computer products. Unfortunately, I have not even attempted to plug in my G4 with Streetdeck since it looks like this is not the wife-friendly head unit product it was advertised to be. What a waste of money to have this thing sitting on my desk. Why isn't there a way to obtain InfilStation so we can be assured of basic functionality of the G4 after we install it? Your company always speaks of how important safety is when driving. I don't know of anything more UNSAFE that a ****ed off person driving down the freeway after his head unit crashes or doesn't work properly!

    Yeah, my driving lately has definitely been less safe as I weave down the road trying to manage various issues on the G4.
