If not, do a reinstall of DFX, making sure during the installation process to tell it to overwrite all settings.

    More Info on Strange Speech in Weather

    I have an update to this problem. I re-installed a fresh version of RR 11.01.2012 build, then a fresh copy of DFX 5.1.2, then installed all updates to DFX (via default Menu 4 button). Everything was fine with the Weather screen until I tapped the 'Reload Weather' button. It spews out the same gobbledy-good speech. I have noticed the speech repeated is the same. It is spoken so quickly that I can't quite make out what it is saying, but it appears to be spelling out something (presumably the text does not match any word, so it is spelling it out).

    I've also noticed when I close RR that it speaks "kill winamp"

    Is there a way to disable RR speaking hidden text? Perhaps that would solve the problem.

    When viewing the Radar Map, National Weather Map, or (national) Temp Map under Weather, approximately every 2 minutes the software speaks what sounds like random gibberish, but it's repeating the same thing over and over. It is speaking individual letters and sounds like part of the speech is the station identification for one our local TV stations. I'm wondering if the software is perhaps retrieving the radar data from that station. I know it says "Weather Channel."

    This does not occur when viewing Current Weather or 4 Day Forecast. I reside in the USA. Asking the system to speak the current forecast functions normally.

    Either way, it's quite annoying. The speech is so rapid that I can't make out all of the characters. The string seems to be around 16-20 characters or so. I don't see any such text on the screen, so it is something hidden. Perhaps part of some data stream???

    Anyone have an idea of what this could be, why RR would be reading these characters, and how to stop it?

    this is NOT a bug in RR

    its a bug in RR config.... oddly no one noticed the corruption of skin.ini, its not hard to notice it, when you look at it and see that its the contents of general.ini
    and thanks to dartman_71, i wouldnt have noticed it too... since the skin i use, doesnt really use skin.ini for much
    but this is a new bug(only prob 1 month old)... so for safety, since dfx stores lots of settings in the skin.ini, keep a backup!
    and its fixed in V1.0.0.15

    gets connected via USB to the PC and this:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/SIRIUS+-...c-c1&cp=1&lp=1

    via an included cable with the first device.

    The audio from the first device connects to the line-in on your sound card.
    You connect the vehicle 12v power to the first device, it powers the second device from there.
    Plug in the antenna included with the second device and point to the sky and your golden.

    I've had this setup for several years now and it works excellent.
    So I just got both of those devices-the SCC1 and mitch's interface. Hooked it all together and to the PC (xp machine), installed Mitch's drivers (no errors) gave it a dedicated com port (10), set the com port in RRconfig, gave the interface 12v power, and all seems fine. Then I run Sirius Demo from Mich's driver package, and it can't find the interface. I run RR w/ DFX (latest updates) and when I press the sirius button I get the nogo screen that says "sirius radio not registered".

    This was supposed to be plug and play so any theories? I haven't subscribed yet as I wanted to make sure everything is working right before doing so, and I was going to hit up the demo channel 184 to confirm all that.

    Anybody?

    I hate when I post a question like this then resolve it right after! Ok, it ended up being a 12v supply issue to the interface. all worked out now and everything works.

    without even trying to use DFX Voice, RR locks up when DFX loads up, sometimes you have to press a button.


    Carwings didn't lock up, deleting DFX5 completely from the system and re-installing didn't fix it, removing DFX Voice fixed it.

    Let me know if I can assist any further.
    How do you disable DFX Voice ?.

    Go to the DFX plugin manager and disable the motion lock plugin.

    I managed to use RRWebRadio in DFX.

    Here's the needed files if anyone wants to use it in dfx.

    Not perfect by any means, but it works.

    Enjoy.
