    Some tweaking help plz

    Hi again,

    I am trying to figure out some tweaks and didn't revea the answers (or at least my poor attempts at it).

    I am using RR with blue devil skin (nice work guys ) and have the following issues:

    1. Flash is really, really slow -- I have already dropped the hardware acceleration a couple of levels, with some small improvements. However, it's still WAY to slow and I am using http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=MTB%2D014 this M/B.
    and yes, I have read the FAQ for flash, I installed Flash 9 and then updated it with the flash file linked from the FAQ.
    To be a little more clear, flash *works* but it can be REALLY slow. ie: press menu button, wait 15 - 30 seconds, something happens.


    Using this http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=MTB%2D014 for audio.... I am outputing audio via S/PDIF. I have tried different settings for Map Master Volujme to Control line in RRconfig. Nothing I tried fixed the problem, and worse it messed up volume control (ie: messed up the wave control settings).


    2. The mute button doesn't work. I press the button (looks like a little speaker) and a red diagonal line shows up, but sound keeps on flowing...

    3. Similar to #3, the only equlizalizer option that works is the volume control (set to master). Nothing else does anything.

    4. I know I have read this somewhere on the forums, but I can't find it now, how do I setup apps to start when RR starts? I know there's an execute option at the top of the RR config program, but putting anything in there only get it repeated to me by a monitone voice when RR start. I would like to understand this so I can start right up into the frontend (not win.exe).

    Enforcer, bless his soul, attempted to help me out with this:
    Small issues trying to resolve....

    However,

    entering the command as shown here:
    GPS problem with RR running as shell
    doesn't work. If I remove the RUN part, it still doesn't work -- and yes the path is correct.



    Thanks for what ever help I can get.

    None of your links work,What hardware exactly??

    Ok,can you control the mixer and stuff from the Taskbar without RR running?
    Have you tried updating the drivers and such?
    Have you tried any other skins?

    Please post your soundcard type and software revision.
    Also,what OS is this?

    What app are you trying to launch? please post the code you tried to start it with.

    Thanks Griff1:

    Here are some updated links (the bottom 2 do work)

    http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=COM%2D022

    http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=MTB%2D014

    Have you tried updating the drivers and such?
    All the Drivers are the latest versions

    Have you tried any other skins?
    No, not yet.

    Also,what OS is this?
    WinXP


    What app are you trying to launch? please post the code you tried to start it with.
    --See last link ( http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...56&postcount=8 )
    ie: it's xport (although, once working I will add a couple of others)


    I tried Winamp equalizer outside of RR -- there was an "on" option, that was off. Switching that on gave me control of most of the equalizer (although a lag between the movement and sound change). This then translated into working in RR. The items that didn't work were bass and treble.

    First things first...

    Don't expect too much in the way of flash on that board,there just not upto it.
    Sorry if thats the 1st time you've heard that but thats how it is i'm afraid.

    It sounds like you've fixed the sound for the most part,i use an Audigy 4 and although it supports Bass and Treble,it don't work for me either.

    As far as export goes just drop it in the windows Startup folder and have it start with windows,NOT RR.
    Thats how i have mine in the car and it works fine.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    Griff1,

    I would like to do this:

    FAQ: Boot directly into your front end

    in order to do that , I figured I need RR to start what win.exe would have.... I am trying to get my boot times down as low as possible -- I am sitting at about 45sec right now.

    How much processing power does flash take? This is a 1.5Ghz board. For something that is suppose to be web based, I wouldn't expect it using that much power.

    Ok,

    I am making an assumption.... That is if win.exe isn't run, nor are the items in the startup folder....

    Is this right?

    Yeah your right,sorry i didn't realise thats what you wanted.

    As far as the board is concerned,i've yet to see any Flash happy VIA users.

    Where do you have Xport installed to? C/Program files?
    I'll try and sort it this end and i'll let you know if i have any luck.

    Sorry i can't be of more instant use but stick with me mate,i'll try and help all i can.

    The problem is simple,if you look at the code in the post by Blue ZX3 you will see the problem,the code in the pic is wrong.

    It should be this = RUN;C:\Program Files\XPort3\XPort.exe (NOTICE how the folder is XPort3 but the exe is just XPort)

    Griff1,

    I do appreciate all your help. However, contrary to what I said previously, my path isn't exactly the same as the posted on... I have checked my path and stilll no go.

    So I tried add the programs to startup by editing the registry, under the "RUN" keys. That gave me the same unsat. results as everything else.

    How did you get your setup to work?
