    I could go on with all of the other issues, but no one really seems to be interested.

    there prob is some common issue with all your setups.... a plugin... something...
    i go real fast, never a lock up...
    granted im on a fast system, but most systems are fast, its not that much cpu usage for RR

    remove all the plugins... slim it down...
    easy way to remove plugins, rename the plugins dir to like plugins disabled...

    and if you have a RR issue, post it in the main forum... i dont always read this thread... just time to time

    I have the same issue with Carwings and DFX. The only skin that works reliably for me is the eLite series. Really like DFX and would like to use. Could it be the size of my library? 109GB. Please hold all the comments about how crazy this may sound. My preference.

    if there is a legit issue, it can be solved...

    Mitch,

    The issue is that RR becomes unresponsive whenever a key is press. I don't believe the "issue" is with DFX or Carwings. I believe it is with RRMedia and the size of the library. The skin I use without this issues does NOT load the RRMedia plugin or doesn't use it. I'm going to test this theory over the next couple of days on my Desktop PC which has a huge MP3 library. There may be a limitation with RRMedia that's has been over looked like the total number of files or something. Anyway, I will post to a general forum with my finding and not clutter up this thread.

    I believe that I was having the same problem. Uninstall RR, DFX and Winamp. Reinstall Winamp first, then continue with RR and DFX and see if that clears up the problem. If I remember correctly that is what solved it for me.

    When talking about Size and RRMedia, better to say # of songs/files as size is varient depending on what type of files you mostly have and their quality. Yes, at one point, there was a song count limit(bug) but that has long been fixed.

    Now, I can't really see RRMedia being the issue here, the only thing that comes to mind with this would be those users that try to load a crap load of songs or their entire collection into a playlist (WTF...). That has and probably will always be an issue with RR, I'm talking about a playlist with 10K+ songs or more type thing.

John has taken a break for a while (how long, IDK??), so right now anything skin related is being taken care of by me, along with everything else that I have on my plate ATM. I will get them out when I can...

    what does "a key is press" mean...

    like when u touch a letter on your keyboard?

    carwings doesnt use RRMedia...

    disable all plugins (yea rrmedia is prob a bit active all the time, even with carwings)
    the way to disable plugins, is easy, rename the plugins folder, to like plugins disabled...
    might want to keep skintool around

    then u can test with carwings....

    keep in mind, ANY plugin can make RR die, there is no way to prevent that

    Well I guess I've said it wrong. Basically, whenever you touch any button on the skin RR will become unresponsive and you'd have to force close RR in the task manager. Initially, I thought the issues was with the RRVM plugin (last plugin installed before this started happening). I removed it (deleted from the RR install folder and skin folders) and still got the lockups. So I started thinking maybe it had something to do with RRMedia. I came to this after I manually removed the RRMedia.DB and rating_ files from my music folder and edited out the folder entries in the music settings. When I pressed the music button after doing this, I was able to navigate the skin and rebuild the library. My library has 31,762 files. It takes RRMedia 8:26 to build the DB on my desktop PC. Generally, I que up an album and play it. I will test without using RRMedia and see how things are. Again, I don't believe this issues is with DFX, Carwings or a plugin (minimal install and still have the issues). I think the issue may be with the size of the library I'm using. Oh and RRMedia does load when using Carwings, but is not used. It is not loaded when I use the eLite skins. It doesn't show in the task manager or task bar.

    Number of songs is not going to be the factor here, I'm have 43k+, and I'll just guess that by now, John is in the 51-52K range and there are no issues of lockup/freezing here. Just some food for thought....

    Yep, that's the issue I run into, (along with RRVoice not working, HDRadio resetting stations, makes me wonder if anyone is actually using RR anymore)

    I'm pretty sure its not RRMedia, as I only have about 1400 songs, and the fact it does it in Carwings also, just not as common. I've learned to press "buttons" slowly
