    ride runner questions

    I setup my ride runner system this week end.
    my question is

    and

    2) when i play video it has a major blue tint to it. I have tried to use the gamma control panel
    and make adjustments in vlc player to no avail any ideas on how to correct this?

    3) can I have multiple webcam and select between them?

    WHAT ARE your gps nav settings...
    assuming you use rrconfig

    gps mode = external, ig native checked, GPS path is set to ig's exe
    and GPS window name is iGuidance

    rr.ini:
    gpsmode=2
    gpspath=C:\Program Files (x86)\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidanceUMPC.exe
    gpsname=iGuidance

    optional ig native stuff:
    [IG Native]
    ignative=true
    igautosw=true
    gpsonvoice=true
    pauseonvoice=false
    lastscreenswitchtime=0
    -Thanks

    that took car of my iGuidance problem

    thanks a bunch for the help

    now if I could just get the people to stop looking like avatars when I play video

    and while I am at it

    What webcam do you find works best with road runner
    (the one I am using does not work well in day or night driving but works wonderfully at dusk)

    Thanks

    Blue Tinted Video

    it make no difference what video player I use
    I get the blue tint inside of road runner but I do not get it outside of road runner

    I like vlc player as it supports more video codecs and on a 733 mhz system does not drag the video

    I have looked at taking the background screen out (it is the default blue smoke) but it had no effect on playback

    i cant tell you what it is then...

    use carwings
    use built in video
    use A DIFFERENT video!!!

    vlc is all software based codecs, so if your mb has hw acceleration, not a good choice
