    Three questions regarding RR, winamp, gps

    Ok I searched and I just know it's there somewhere, but I got sick or looking through tons of threads that just mention my search terms. So here are my three questions.

    1. I'm using RR with the Crystal Blue skin and when I start RR winamp starts and stays on top of RR. I have set "stay on top" to off in winamp and I have selected "hide winamp" in RR, but it still starts this way. Can anyone tell me how to stop this?

    2. RR also seems to start and leave the windows xp task bar on top. When I play a DVD, it always stays there, even when I click on the DVD player. I have already set "hide desktop" in RR, but this still happens.

    3. I know that MS Streets and Trips is not really supported and I can live with that, but I really like the feature of having the volume set higher when I get on the highway. Can RR look at just the GPS to do this or does it need to look at Streets and Trips? Can anyone tell me if and how to get this to work?

    Thank you and sorry if they are kind of a newb questions.

    Be sure the winamp skin is set to "classic". The modern skins don't hide properly.

    Get this program:
    XPort
    it will split your GPS port into two separate ports so that RR and Streets and Trips will work. Use one port for S&T, then use the other for RR. There is an option for GPS port in RRConfig. There should also be a "Hide Taskbar" option in RRConfig. It will hide the Taskbar when RR starts.

    1. make sure you are using classsic skin only for winamp and have closed the EQu and playlist of winamp.

    2.Look for Hide taskbar in RRconfig.

    3. There is an attenuated volume setting according to speed. You will need to run a com port splitter so that your GPS can feed both Streets and Trips and Road Runner.


    Not newb questions but they have been answered many times already, so a search or a bit of reading would have brought them up

    Thanks for the great answers. I will impliment them when I get home, although I didn't see hide taskbar, but I probably just overlooked it.

    I hear you on the search thing. I always search before posting, but sometimes I just get sick of filtering through hundreds of threads that return anything remotely related to my search criteria. On that note, I think some things are easier to search out than others.

    Thanks again. Looking forward to getting this working. It's still on the bench at the moment.

    Try changing the setting on the taskbar itself, i.e., I had the problem and IIRC the fix was as simple as turning auto-hide off.
