I understand that I was probably using HDACTIVE for something other than it was designed. I was using HDACTIVE as a workaround to display the HD artist and title on the main menu of my skin. So basically when playing mp3s the artist and title would display as normal and when the hdradio was active it would display the HDARTIST and HDTITLE. I would like someway to display the current hdartist and hdtitle outside of the radio skin or be able to update the TAGARTIST AND TAGTITLE with them.
But aside from that the new hdradio is working perfectly and solved the initial loud audio I would get until I change a channel with the old exe.
