    Hey John!

    Awesome changes - I just downloaded the latest version and the new help file. Did you hide the psd's somewhere? I looked on the first page and in the help file and you didn't mention them.

    John, one thing I noticed on the BlueDevil skin and now on the digital series, is that when you go to the "music" function, you are taken straight to the browser. Is this done for a reason? Personaly, I would rather go straight to the "player" skin instead of having to hit the button at the bottom of the browser skin to get there. Once my play;ist is loaded, I generaly don't need the browser skin unless I want to change. Maybe it's just me.

    i had a profound idea. Is there a way we can implement an easy way to switch navigation software via skin? So if we are using IG3 and wanted to use mappoint for the poi's we could just switch it in the skin.

    Just a thought.

    Speed Fan Configuration

    Boy, setting up the Speedfan configuration is a little tricky. One suggestion that I would make, John, is that you indicate in speedfan.skin which line is for which setting. I had to go through the X/Y coordinates to figure out what buttons I needed to reset.

    I also have a couple of questions:

    1. The diagnostic screen is showing that I have total memory of 479, that 144 is free and that 62% is remaining. That doesn't seem right since 144/479 = 30% remaining. Am I missing something?

    2. Speedfan shows me five different temps, temp1, temp2, temp3, temp4 and HD1. Obviously, I know that HD1 is the temp of the harddrive, but how do I figure out what the others are for? Is it safe to assume that the highest one is the chip temp?

    This is kinda a personal preference really. I am open to suggestions on what people think though.

    If you go into the RRConfiguration program, you can choose GPS "Menu". This will pop up an on screen menu to choose from the GPS program that you want to use. You can have 4 GPS programs (or more) installed and have access to all of them. You will just have to edit the button codes on the "GPS_Menu.skin" file.

    I agree 100% that it is definitely hard to set up, no doubt about it. Unfortunately there is no way to put comments in the skin file right now, as the editor removes them when the skin is saved.

    To get my temperatures, I had to run drefrag on my Hard Drives, to watch the temp go up a little bit to know what HD was what

    As the the other temperatures, the highest one is usually the CPU, and the next highhest is usually the case temperature. It will vary from system to system, but this is a good rule of thumb.

    I wish I could make the set up of this easier, but there really is no way that I know of right now. The bright side is, once it is done, you don't have to do it again on that computer.

    I don't know if this messes you up or not, but since you can't make comments in the speedfan.skin file, maybe you can rearrange the code lines so it's easier to tell what line goes to what button. For example, maybe left to right, top to bottom as follows:

    Line 1: CPU Temp
    Line 2: CPU Fan
    Line 3: CPU Load
    Line 4: Case Temp
    Line 5: HD1 Temp
    Line 6: HD2 Temp

    and so on. A big part of the effort for me was trying to figure out which lines went to which buttons so I could change the appropriate codes.

    Also, do you have any thoughts on my first question in post 128?

    Sorry I missed that question.... You want me to do math now?!

    I will look into it and see if I can figure what went wrong....

    Math is 3x your normal rate, right?

    Also, you're exactly right that the diagnostics are really neat once set up. Nice work on the skin!
