    So, I need some help with settings. I'm running winamp 5.61 ( the latest version ) and I get the visualizer to work, but no sound output, even the it says its playing.
    But then I restart RR and winamp, and get the audio to work, but no visualizer.
    What settings in RR or Winamp do I need to change?
    Also, Fennec has no OSK when I try to use it. I tried the IE plugin, but couldn't get it to even show up.

    Thanks
    Josh

    I will look into it in the next couple of days and see if I can fix it.
    So to go along with this, if I choose albums from the discs section, there is no Album Cover art work on the main menu page, or top song, album, artist info. If I choose music from the regular old school music browser, I have the album cover art and main menu page song, artist, album info.

    Im still trying to figure out some issues Im having:
    I think Blue confirmed that audio playing while in startup splash screen is a known bug and should be fixed in the next update. Is there any workaround I can try besides muting audio before turning off the carpc?

    For some reason DFx5.1 is not saving the 3D logo setting. I keep changing it to a clock (flip.swf) but as soon as the skin toggles daytime/nigthtime it reverts to playing list for daytime and album art for night time.

    At some point back in DFx4 the live weather map stopped centering at the exact GPS coordinates and began centering on nearest city. This happens in DFx5 too. Is this expected?


    cheers

    I can't work any of that out.. i can't see anything to do with CPU usage that i can copy/modify for cputemp etc..

    Yes, Fennec has no OSK, unfortunately. The IE plugin issue is probably a setting not set correctly, I personally have never used/tried it yet.

    I think i know why, basically, RR doesn't set itself to a source if you don't go to a source screen first, hence why it works when you go to the old school browser, it knows and sets its source to Audio(mp3) and then the TAGxxx and album art work accordingly. And is fixable via the skin.

    Not easily, as fixed in the next releases, we had to do some additional logic to get it all to work correctly.

    After you get the theme setup the way you want it, you have to go and save it in the themes skin and then it should stay how you set it. Just changing it doesn't commit it to the theme, it just saves/sets until another theme is loaded.

    No, should center on current location. Will have to check and confirm this issue.

    @All:

    We really don't want to do any additional updates this early, but there still seems to be some small issues still pop'n up here N there. Might have to start putting together a 5.1.1 Patch update with these fixes. Errrr..

    K, what about winamp? I have to open winamp before opening RR otherwise, no audio. What should the file path be? I have it set to winamp (auto) in RR config. Is there a setting in winamp I need to change? I'm not so much concerned with the visuals, but no audio is a problem. Lol

    Here is a pretty std player settings (rr.ini)

    [Audio Player Setup]
    player=WINAMP
    playerpath=
    hideplayer=true
    closeplayeronexit=true
    exitmute=false

    you are using the clasic WA skin? And not the "Lite" WA version..

    worse case turn on rr debug and attach a debug log.

    K, where is the rr.ini? I looked in the RR program files and couldn't find it.
    Yes I'm using the classic skin.

    Thanks for your help, really appreciate it.

    I'll keep muting it before turning it off. But when I forget, specially at night, it scares the crap out of me when suddenly there's music blasting with no way to mute it.
    Tried playing with the start up greeting settings but didnt make a difference

    managed to save the changes now. thanks
    went back to the help file and found where it states how to save changes. sorry for missing that


    Code:
    Color Themes
    
    You can save and recall up to 6 color themes in the skin.  Simply set the wallpaper and all colors to your liking.  
    Then go into "Themes" and select a preset.  When you select one, you will have the option to save, rename or recall the color theme

    Try this onscreen keyboard. Works great and unobtrusive, and won't interfere with the screens that do have an OSK.
