    PhoneControl.NET startup delays RR

    I *love* the PhoneControl integration in RR. Absolutely flawless -- except for one minor thing: PhoneControl takes some time to start up (15 seconds), as it seems to require that the device connect sequence either finishes or times out before proceeding. Since RR seems to wait for PhoneControl to start up, RR is delayed in bringing up the main screen.
    Is it possible for RR to allow PhoneControl to start up in the 'background', bringing up the main RR screen immediately on start while the phone is connected, initialized, etc. Does that sound like a good idea?
    Thanks.

    Currently RR uses that wait time of Phoco to start up winamp. You can load Phoco on your startup if you want then RR will open up quickly without waiting for it. Because RR is done in VB6 there's no decent way to keep it running while waiting to connect to Phoco, that is, without adding a whole lot of code to it.
