    Go to "Speech" in your control panel, and under "Text to Speech", select a different voice.
    There are only a few to choose from, but you can purchase more. I highly recommend Neospeech's "Julie"

    I'm also crossing my fingers for a new working wifi manager in DFX. Well now that we are on the subject of the Julie voice, is there anyway to make the start up greeting to start talking first and finish talking before your music resumes from last time used? The music starts first a bit, like 2-4 sec., music pauses then greeting kicks in, then music seems to skip ahead a little on resume. Not were it was last time I used RR/DFX. Is this normal? I never used greeting at start up until now. Maybe a setting in RRVoice or something in TTS? Thanx all.

    Something like that almost would need to be a new setting in RR, so that when it starts the player sets the RR PL, that it does a play followed directly by a pause, and then the skin could check if the setting is set, and if so, at end of the startup speaking, unpause it.

    This occurs because RR starts playing the PL before the skin start up routine has a chance to get far enough to pause it to speak, causing 3-4 seconds of music. Now thinking about it, there is a slight adjustment that we might be able to do that would hopefully minimize the music before the speech...will check into it.... Would be much more preferable to how you are describing how it should work.

    Can't figure-out how to justify-right the text on the main menu buttons?? When in development, there was talk about incorporating a setting that could left, center, or right justify the text - i can't seem to find that either (if it was indeed added).

    Blue, great to know that this will be looked into Thanks. ----> Treetop, It's called DFXMenuJustify.txt file. I changed my button text to CENTER, I think this looks better. Just my opinion. Oh, and also if your using CNN NEWS like I do you can change the text to just NEWS in button editor and just have the button icon read CNN instead of it looking like CNN CNN NEWS. Just change name of icon to NEWS in button icons folder.

    I also am having a seperate issue with DFX5. My system freezes when I make onscreen changes to some of the functions. Examples so fare are:

    1. with auto switch day/night is enable in the global settings, when the system tries to actually changes from day to night automatically, and the long notification popup ("night setting has been enabled...or something like that), the screen freezes with the notification bar up. requires reboot.
    2. in the mixer, when I try to make a change to one of the presets (ie pop, rock, etc), the notification bar pops up with "settings saved" and the screen freezes. requires reboot.


    since these seem to be related to onscreen settings changes, I'm assuming they are related. any advice on what to check? Didn't have these issues with DFX4. I'm running a normal version of XP home edition.

    Got the auto switch working with the fix in the #2 post. My apologies for missing that.

    The press and hold saving of mixer settings is still freezing my system though. any ideas what's causing that?
