    XM and genre

    I love the XM interface built into RR, but there are some buttons I have no idea what they are. Is there a FAQ on the XM skin for RR?

    Also, will genre be implemented, such as Dance, News, Sports, Comedy, ect?

    The GENRE is dsplayed right under the Signals ... You can make your own Genre Lists using the favorites... I have described XM functions here: RR 04-25-05 ... Improvements..

    Plus the circled arrows button reloads the channels (this is still a little buggy).. All other buttons work as usual.

    Sorry to drag this to the top. I'm trying to understand this feature even though I haven't got it working yet.

    Are "Favorites" like a list of Presets? And through this interface you can only have one list displayed at a time? Is there a limit to how many stations you can have in a list? Sorry, if there is an appropriate thread please let me know.

    EDIT: one more: is it possible to have direct access to the different favorite lists: as in press button 1 for fav list 1, press 2 for fav list 2, without going into a picklist?

    Favorites lists are personalized lists of channels. There's no limit of channels per favorites list and you don't select the favorite list from a list, but yet, you press 1 button to cycle through the favorites lists and the main list. This makes it very simple and fast to switch to different favorites lists... Also, there's no limit of how many favorites list you can make, so no matter how your taste of organization is, you can easily make lists for Rock, Jazz, News, etc..

    Sweet. Thanks guino! I'm making a skin (for a puter that ain't up yet), and wanted to make sure I knew how it worked. I Understand the eyeball now: cycle through lists, not channels.

    Sometime in the future I may come whining & pleading fot a way to show multiple lists at the same time
