    Hi Guino, is it true that you have married last time ? if yes, best wishes for you and your wife. and believe me its better to go outside for a while as to fight.

    now some comments to your request... and sorry my english is not the best...but i do my very best.

    1)
    a single command for RADIO "on/off"
    a single command for AUDIO "on/off"
    not the way through the "radio_player.skin" or "audio_player.skin" the radiomute didnt work for me.


    answer:
    I have to see how much work it is necessary to make this happen, however, it doesn't make sense to allow
    switching music to radio in the music screen, just as it doesn't make sense to switch from radio to audio in the
    radio screen -- we'd have to impose some limits on such things.

    comment:
    i ask for it because the INTERNET RADIO now is a part of "AUDIO", for me its home in the family of "RADIO".
    ----------------

    2)
    selection for 5 different backgroundscreens in one skin. if i want to draw a storyboard as skin it would be nice to have different backgrounds.

    answer:
    You can have as many different backgrounds in the same skin as you want.
    You just have to change the "background" variable before loading the screen -- just make sure you don't preload these screens.

    comment:
    be guilty with me, in my age it needs a liitle longer to understand what you guys mean.
    a simple example would be nice.

    -----------------

    3)
    popups selectable "with/without" backgroundscreen.

    comment:
    answer given in question 2

    ---------------------------

    4)
    backgroundscreen justable like PopUps. "/POSX=, /POSY=, /SHOWWIDTH=, /SHOWHEIGHT="

    answer:
    We can expand the background= setting to allow for that, however, there are freely available command line
    tools which could generate the background images from a file with the desired parameters.

    comment:

    -------------------------------

    5)
    better quality of fonts in the iList window. now are only some fonts with good quality.

    answer:
    Standard iLists display fonts with the HIGHEST font quality possible. TRANSPARENT iLists can not use anti-aliased
    fonts because of the nature of the code which would never reach acceptable performance with anti-aliased fonts.

    comment:
    i remember it, i must look for good looking fonts and rename them for iList showing.

    -----------------------------

    6)
    a working "RDSSIGNAL" for the ADS radio too. now it only works "RSIGNAL" in slider showing.

    answer:
    RDSSIGNAL is a code that is obsolete and currently not used by ANY radio interface. RSIGNAL provides the signal
    from the radio for Cinergy and Silabs/ADS, both of which are derived from the RDS data.

    comment:
    i have an ADS stick, that means ADS is not working well ?

    ------------------------------


    8)
    a change inside the usbradio.dll for showing the RDSTEXT. selectable for RDSText showing in LINE format or showing in 2 block format.
    (the problem of all my ADS sticks is, they only show the RDSTEXT if it selected as 2 blocks).


    answer:
    It is very hard to modify/tweak the core of USBRadio.dll to work better with the ADS tuner without the actual tuner and
    without RDS signal (here in Brazil) -- the last code I worked on was when I was in Spain, using a Silabs tuner,
    the DLL I made is posted on the thread at digital-car.co.uk -- I do not know what's currently in the latest USBRadio.dll.

    comment:
    sorry for my naiv asking, i thought its enough to change the declaration of tis flag.

    -------------------------------

    9)
    showing all information of the internet radio. title and station name.

    answer:
    I have looked into this in the past, and there was no reliable way to make this possible as there's no
    telling when/if internet radio information is received, and the only way to obtain it is to save the playlist
    in winamp and reload it.

    comment:
    now i use the way John goes with the playlists inside the Internet Radio skin.

    --------------------------------

    10)
    with the command X,xxxxx in the menu.skin i can load a driver or plug. i need a command to unload it.
    perhaps its possible to do it with "SELECT" if the skin_browser is showing.
    if i change the skin to another one sometimes i get no output. example the plug for the ICERADIO is one of these problems.


    answer:
    When you unload a skin, RR unloads all extension plugins -- no exceptions. If you're having trouble when switching skins,
    chances are that the plugin itself may not be closing/restarting the device properly.

    comment:
    yeah the plugs for ICE radio is one of the problem. i dont use it, i want give Spidermuzz plug a try.

    ---------------------------------

    7)
    a second radio preset function for station name, delayed readin when button pressed.


    answer:
    Not sure of what you want. It is possible to make preset buttons with editable names for each button
    using variables. If you want to edit a name of a preset in the radio playlist, you can use the radio menu
    or the editpreset command.



    11)
    i want to start a timer with a pressed button, its not possible because the signal of the button only works with "pulse of button NOT PRESSED"
    dont know how you call it in english, but i need the a signal of pressed button also the frontside and all the time i pressed him.
    its using for starting a timer, if selected time is ended and button is also pressed....shift data from "a" to "b".


    answer:
    I'm not sure what you're trying to do. If you have a timer on a screen, you can use variables to signal
    a counter to start/stop and count accordingly. It is currently not possible to perform actions while on hold (Down),
    but it is possible to start a repeating action when pressing a button and stop such repeating action when pressing
    the same or another button


    comment:
    yeah i know that its all editable. in time of a FM radio it make sense. now in time of RDS or HD where all informations are possible
    i thought i could make it automaticly.
    with pressing a PRESET button open the frequence which are safed under this button and READIN the name of the RADIO-STATION.
    BUT....
    in time where i press a PRESET button is no STATION NAME available. it needs a short time (open the channel..getting
    the data from the sender..push into the roadrunner flag) ..before it showing on the screen.
    that means, in first time where i press the PRESET button are no information in the RDSNAME variable.
    therefore i need a timer which work in follow way... PRESET button pressed..start timer for 3seconds..timer ended and PRESET button
    is pressed...take the data from RDSNAME and write it in variable for STATION under this PRESET button.
    if i leave the PRESET button in time where the timer runs..it stops the timer.
    a short press (PRESET button) open the selected frequnce without loading the RDSNAME and all data are the old existed one.

    Well I for one am not thrilled.

    I had installed the 12-08-2007 version and everything was working pretty OK.

    I "upgrade" to this version an nothing but troubles.

    When I Hibernate and resume, it can't find the XM Radio. I have to shut off the computer and restart it to get back XM Radio.

    And I still , no matter what I do , can't get iGuidance to find the GPS unless I start iGuidance first and then start Roadrunner.

    And no I am not a Newb when it comes to this stuff. I have every setting just like it was and have tried every trick in the book.

    I'm done with this build and I'm going back to last years. If this is what I have to look forward to every 4 months..... then thanks but no thanks.

    Sure it may be a "simple fix"

    But how is this for simple.
    With the 12/08 version it was working nearly perfect.

    NOTHING HAS CHANGED in my setup except I installed the new version.

    Now it won't come out of hibernation properly and Navagation won't work properly.

    I don't care if everything was rewritten if it now doesn't work.

    I'm not saying it might not be great for some people, but for me I'll stick with the old version that worked.

    I'm not asking for help.

    I'm expressing my concern and letting others know that if they are running fine right now, don't update unless they are ready to trouble shoot.

    So you're saying just because something is freeware, then no-one has a right to complain that it is broken or breaks their setup.

    I really hope Guino is not so oversensitive as to get offended that I like his older version over his newer version.

    I mean come-on I love his older version , I just can't get his newer version working correctly and I don't have another 20 hours to put into it.

    I think i am gonna make a request of my own if it's doable without too much of effort.. I know RR is for carpc but i personally like to use this for htpc as well.. i am wondering if a hot key can be used to trigger audio, video, photo, etc... So, if i press f1, audio runs, f2, video runs and so on..

    You can already do this using entries in keytbl.ini.

    here is the help file entry

    /, This file defines the functions assigned for keyboard keys
    /, The format is simply: <KEYCODE>,"<COMMAND>"
    /,
    /, Use the KeyCode tool to find the keycodes you wish to use.
    /,
    /, You can use Any SKIN COMMANDS here (Specially):
    /,
    /, CTRLLEFT = will highlight/select the previous control
    /, CTRLRIGHT = will highlight/select the next control
    /, CTRLUP = will move up on list or slider (when selected)
    /, CTRLDOWN = will move down on list or slider (when selected)
    /, CTRLEXEC = will execute the current/highlighted control
    /,
    /, The Lines Bellow are the standard "browsing" commands

    37,"CTRLLEFT"
    38,"CTRLUP"
    39,"CTRLRIGHT"
    40,"CTRLDOWN"
    13,"CTRLEXEC"

    /, The lines bellow are keys assigned to skin commands
    /, You can create as many as you wish.

    27,"CANCEL"
    33,"PGUP"
    34,"PGDOWN"
    2037,"RRPREV"
    2039,"RRNEXT"
    2070,"SEARCHLIST"
    145,"PLAY"

    If you need to know the keycode, there is a file included with RR called Keycode.exe. Fire this up and press a key. This will then tell you the code to use for that key. Keytbl.ini can be found in the main rr directory.
