    That's interesting, as we have an AMX guy here today training our Permanent Install division crew how to use the software. Part of the company I work for, installs all the Apple store network and control systems.

    sonic, i have NO idea where to fix any issues with that...
    i would try it... but i cant put a virtual pc into hibernation
    i might have already fixed it do to natural code rewrite...
    one thing is for sure file writing must happen, so no XPe on flash testers wanted

    I have been testing for mitchjs tonight and he is on the right track! Everything he is trying is working and I like it better already.

    Hey Sonic I have good news for you. The code he is using clears up the annoying not resuming the correct channel. I hibernated several times and it came back to the station I was listening to.

    Mitchjs could use some more testers with different setups so if you have XM you should PM him and give his stuff a chance.

    Mitch please PM me a copy for testing. I can start testing Tuesday or Wednesday when I get back home.

    This is looking very promising. I have my XM Commander set to only have power when the tablet is on because the 12V constant line always draws too much power when the car is stored for more than 5 days and I got tired of jumping it and replacing batteries. This issue is more than likely the result of the Commander not shutting down properly because RR never shuts it off or puts it in standby mode when closing/hibernating. Another question I have is will this update support stand-by mode which is my preferred first step to unattended shutdown (my system shuts off the screen 1 min after ignition shutoff, goes to stand-by after 1 hour, then reloads and hibernates when the internal battery falls to 20%)

    With my current setup, RR has to initialize the XM box on every startup and hibernation kills my ability to go back to XM at all without a reboot. I'll give it a try both ways and see what happens.

    Well I just tried out Mitch's code and it seems to be running fine over here with an XMD. It controls the tuner just fine. I did notice however my SAT signal go down then back up sometimes, when I change channels (not driving of course).

    Well after driving a little bit I dont see the SAT signal come down anymore, its at or near full bars. The TER signal however is only at around 3 bars all the time and I know it should be at full bars because there's a nearby XM repeater around the area.

    then it prob is...

    sat signal is totally different now, the tuner tells me when the signal changed, unlike before where it was polled at an some xx interval
