    Continuous FFWD/FRWD

    Hi,

    Still trying to improve my RR control via the Head Unit, I'm facing the following problem regarding FFWD (and FRWD by the way) :

    When I press and hold FFWD on the HU, it issues a "Start FFWD" command, and when I release it, it issues a "Resume play".
    Currently, my converter just translates the "Start FFWD" from the HU into a FFWD for RoadRunner, but the effect is it just forwards for 1 or 2 seconds, so I guess the FFWD command in RoadRunner must be repeated for as long as you want the song to be played fast...

    So my questions are :
    - is there another command in RR that acts as a "start FFWD" that would continue until a "resume play" is received ?
    - if not, what is the suitable delay before repeating the emulated "FFWD" command ?

    Thanks very much for your attention, and congratulations again for this awesome piece of software...

    PS: detail : there is a typo in Skin Commands.txt : FFWD and FRWD are reversed as already mentioned by someone here

    sorry, those are not docummented yet:

    "STARTFFWD" - Starts FFWD
    "STOPFFWD" - Stops FFWD (PLAY)

    "STARTFRWD" - Starts FRWD
    "STOPFRWD" - Stops FRWD (PLAY)

    This is used specifically for HU integration with car2pc adapters, but should work for anything else.

    That's what I like about RR !
    I think it's now 3 times I ask you to implement a new feature and it's already done :-)

    That's a similar integration indeed.

    Well, maybe the following suggestion will be really new :-) :

    My HU sends a "START FFWD" when I press and hold the "NEXT" button, but it only issues a standard "PLAY" command when I release it (exactly the same command as when I release "PAUSE"), so I was wondering if sending a RESUME to RR coulnd't imply STOPFFWD and STOPFRWD if any of them is active. That is, RESUME would cancel any operations and force a resume at normal playback speed...

    What do you think ?

    Anyway, if RR can't do it, it's just a matter of storing that we are in FFWD or FRWD and translating the PLAY into either STOPFFWD, STOPFRWD or RESUME according to the previous state, but I thought it might be interesting for others too...

    Thanks again for your help.

    Shouldn't be hard to make resume stop the ffwd/frwd procedures.
