    I've been meaning to add this, but haven't found anyone to add a "DVD" button into the video player. There's also an option now as of which video player to use (MPC or built in) and DVD playback is only possible if MPC is used. So that would require a different screen when using the built in player. Otherwise, if the user uses MPC, it is very easy to use the same screen for both video/DVD playback.

    I can't edit graphics (no talent)... but it is definitely easy to make the functions once anybody makes a button (somewhere) for those options.

I am using RR more and more in my car now!

    Anyway, enough butt kissing and on to the topic.

    I am really hoping that you will use radiator for radio because it has a lot of hardware compatible with it. I am currently using Hauppauge WinTV FM. I am using confused's radio module with a modified skin:


    You can download the skin here: http://febsperanza.3plast.com/mediac...iaCarRadio.zip

    On another note, since you are going to develop phone module as well, maybe I just chip in my thoughts here, if I may. I have suggested this to coyote as well but he disappeared Feel free to me anytime you like

    First of all, I think it's safe if you merge DVD and video modules together (or can I do it now? I haven't explored that). For me the Video module is sufficient. Just need a little tweak with the menus for DVD. We can reduce the number of buttons in the main menu.

    Now for the Phone module. I am hoping that you will include a quick dial. For my part, I think that the quick dial should be on the main phone menu. Using my handphone, I find that I use quick dial much more often than using dial pad. Not to mention that you should not use phone while driving , therefore the quick dial should minimize distraction from looking for numbers. Thus,



    Now, if we press NUM PAD, the Number pad will appear thus:



    Pressing Quick dial will go back to the main phone menu.

    What do you think? Is this actually possible?

    Cheers!
