    I have a strange one, this is on the desktop PC, don't know it if does it on the carPC but then it wouldn't really matter.

    When I exit RR, it reduces the wav volume to zero. (doesn't mute the soundcard, just affects the wav volume). I have tried mapping to Master, wav and all. All with the same result, this has only happened with recent releases and my soundcard drivers have not changed. Also tried the exitmute=false line in rr.ini but that didn't work either.

    I changed the mechanism on shutdown to mute winamp and restore its volume when exiting, if the output plugin you're using is "linked" to the wave line, this could happen, though it is supposed to restore it before it closes winamp -- I would ask you to try a different output plugin (Winamp comes with 2 of them)

    tried adjusting all the plugins, but no dice.

    If I have the volume contyrol open and in view it doesn't do it.

    weird.

    the exit mute option was removed when I made that change, but I guess I'll put it back then (As a fallback for this kind of issues). I swear it works perfect in all of my machines.

    I am having this problem aswell. When i reboot i have no audio RR, and i need to go open winamp and set the volume to 100% (the slider will be at zero every time)

    5th september 06 RR
    winamp 5.x

    The problem only appeared after updating from a RR release about from about a year ago. I have added exitmute=false but it had no effect.

    I am confident it is happening because i am doing a very nasty windows shutdown. I wrote my own shutdown app that uses a delphi forced shutdown command, and i dont think it waits for anything. I will try adding the presets as you have described guino and see how it goes.

    It's not likely that it's because of your nasty shutdown (though that's not a good thing), because my WinAmp started doing the same thing with this release. Not sure what was causing it, but everytime RR started up, the WinAmp volume would be set at Zero. So I had to open WinAmp independently, slide the volume to 100 and then close it out. After than, when RR was opened, the volume was were it should be. It was really ****ing me off till I figured it out.

    It has something to do with the winamp plugin it seems, there is a volume option, return to previous level on close. so when RR was running WinAmp, WinAmp was thinking (for whatever reason) that the slider volume was at zero, so even if you raised it while RR was running, when you closed out RR and WinAmp was shut down, the volume slider was dropped back down to Zero.

    I'm using the latest binary and WinAmp 2.95

    That maybe so but it was ok till a little while ago,whatever the reason for this change to RR and winamp,it needs changing back,right now.

    My power supply shuts everything down,there's nothinhg nasty about the procedure,but now i'm reduced to sitting in the car and shutting it all down manually so as to save face in front of people when it comes back on,its all a bit sad.

    please some1 restore winamp to its former self,stuff the workarounds.

    get the latest beta and add: exitmute=false to RR.INI, then try it.

    It may be a winamp lack... I've noticed that if it is stopped, a volume level change doesn't have effect in the windows mixer.
    So, the code below doesn't be able to restore the volume level when exiting from RR
    Code:
    'Close Winamp
    SendMessage hWndWinAMP, WM_COMMAND, WA_STOP, 0
    WinAMP_SetVolume WV <--- This doesn't work as expected
    Winamp_Close
    Now I don't know if this happens always or it's just with some sound cards, however I've found that the problem can be solved setting the option "Reset to original value on stop" in winamp.
