    Pulling my hair out here. Been off the forums for a little dealing with a career change etc. I was working with RRvoice and DFX 5.3 the other day and I still cannot wrap my finger around something. When I was beta testing DFX 5 and triggered RRvoice via girder a listening indicator would pop up on screen. The top indicator would also change from red to green when listening. Since using the released version the indicators do not function. The top indicator is always green and the pop up never happens. RR voice works, rr mutes etc.. Any idea why this would be? Also, speak greeting is not functioning either.

    The RRVoice indicator was changed from the beta versions that you tested. It was changed to green=plugin installed and initialized, red=plugin either not installed or is disabled.

    The CMD that girder should be using for RRVoice is 'RRVCON'. It will act as a toggle. Not sure what cmd you are currently using in girder.

    Does the Test button work in the greeting setting screen? And do you have a process called "DFXSpeak.exe" running?

    fuzzy artwork and folders, osk help

    Make sure you do not have the MP3Art.dll installed and registered. If you do, it will use the album covers embedded into the MP3's. These are normally very small pictures, and when stretched in the skin will look really really bad.
    i could find no trace of mp3art.dll or x,mp3art on my system, any other ideas to make dfx5 not use the embedded mp3 artwork? i want it to use jpegs located in the music folders

    can somebody please point me in the right direction to setup a on screen keyboard for use with gps, browser or whenever inputing text is throughout the dfx5 skin? i have windows 7 so i can use its osk but i dont know how to bind it to a skin button, id be willing to sacrifice a volume control button to have a osk

    thank you

    DFX itself does not decide where the artwork comes from. That is set up with RR. If you do not have the MP3Art.dll in your RR/Plugins folder, then it should use the artwork in your music folders. Check to see you do not have anything but the single hi-res image in your album folders.

    What GPS program are you using. All but Garmin and MapPoint have their own keyboards for inputting text.

    Check in your plugins folder for a subfolder called "mediaArt". Move that away from the plugins directory and that should fix ya.

    Thanks. Good to get back to life. Dfxspeak.exe is running and test works. I I have girder setup. I used the command window search. Either way it works whatever I did. Thanks for the info.

    album art solved, still need help with osk

    Ok, seems as though I had multiple jpgs in most of my music folders and they where under 200x200 resolution thus when looking at them in RR player they were very pixelated. I'm going through my music folders with a file renamer to delete all jpgs with resolutions lower than 200x200 so the folder.jpg can be used witch is almost over 200x200 in most folders. Then i'm going to run the album cover down loader to fill in folders with no covers.

    But im still stumped on this osk issue. I am in fact using garmin witch i though was the best thing going, i heard they have discontinued it but it just had an update and works flawlessley. Is there something comparable? and even if i did switch to a GPS software that included its own osk id still be out in the cold because i would still need some kind of osk for internet browsing and any additional software that i plan to add with the external apps deal that required text input. So basically im lacking a solutin for this osk issue. what is everybody else doing? When i think about all the development hours that went into RR and DFX5 i cant believe theres no osk, I must be missing something. if there is no osk how can i link a freware osk or win7 osk to the mute button? Please help, my system is almost perfect!

    thank you all

    Are you suggesting that i launch my webbrowser and external apps with a osk skin? using this method?
    http://www.mp3car.com/rr-faq/52568-h...or-screen.html

    Garmin has osk skin, however when i push the osk button the garmin screen disapears and i cant see what im typing, any solutions?

    Is it possible to link an exe file to the skin's mute button or better yet the power button? that way it could launch any osk
