    Prev/Next buttons don't follow XM playlist

    I have a favorites list for xm and on the main xm screen prev/next move up and down through the selected list. However, if I switch to another screen (like gps) and hit prev/next they just move to the very next station up/down without regard to the favorites list. The mp3 playlists work fine, they are adhered to on the gps screen, but not the xm list. Very annoying since I'm spending more time on xm lately.

    I would guess another XMPCR problem -- I don't see this behavior but have other XMPCR issues. I (finally) shipped Guino an XMPCR today so perhaps he will be able to use it to do a little debugging, in his spare time

    EXCEPT that I just swapped out my XMpcr for an XMdirect! It did the same thing with the pcr though. I put the XMpcr in my house because I have some HTPC software that can use it. I must say that I'm very pleased with the sound quality of the Direct. I like it better than the pcr which was too "hot" in the 8khz-12khz range.

    How about THAT. I'm sure guino will figure it out once he has time to take a look. I might just have to suck it up and get an XMD. Good luck.

    Hey -- by the way -- how do you power your Extigy?

    Well, that has always been the intended functionality... basically, if the screen has a playlist, RR will follow to the next station on it.. if it doesn't, it will go to the next item on the main list. It is fairly easy to change that behavior, but it is even easier to add a "hidden" playlist on to the gps screen so that it works in the same way...

    If you want to try it, just copy the Sxx,xxx... line from xm.skin onto the external_gps.skin then change the NNN number (Sxx,NNN,...) to something like 800 (so it won't show).. then try next/prev again...

    guino:
    Thanks for the tip. It's actually preferable to be able to do it the way you suggest, if it had only been DOCUMENTED anywhere!

    rjoek:
    ONE of the many reasons I switched to the older Extigy from the Audigy 2NX was that it took a simple 12v supply as opposed to the weird 5v of the Audigy. I power it (and the XMD) right off of my CNX1260 power supply that feeds the computer.

    Glad to hear I had no idea what I was talking about re: the XM buttons. I have an Extigy as well and love it. I power it off my OPUS as well. Reason I asked is because I was having problems with standby/resume (Digital Processing options with 5.1) and I fixed it with a simple (but slightly tricky) relay solution. Just in case you were interested: ACC powers up Extigy, when OPUS comes on it powers relay which switches power from ACC to OPUS. When I go to standby I need Extigy to stay on until OPUS shuts down, and the relay also makes this possible. Extigy starts up (and 'initializes' -- flashing LEDs when you first turn it on) before computer and stays on until computer goes to standby. Extigy can therefore standby/resume flawlessly. I can provide more detail if you like, if it's not useful please disregard.
