    It appears the HQCT unit is the best way to go????
    Will this work with John's skin?
    Any Radio that works with RR (Mentioned in the FAQ at the top of the forums) will work with the skin, including anything with Radiator support, which I think, includes the HQCT.

    Curious about FM radio
    I'm curious about FM also. Why does anyone use this with the computer in light of the fact that just about every car already has FM?

    Some people (like myself) have completely replaced their stock stereo with the carpc. So if the carpc can't do it, we don't have it.

    John,

    With all the skin colors that are going to be available it occurred to me that some skins will likely look better during the day and some better at night. That got me to thinking that it might be neat if there was an autoswitch feature in DFX. One could, for example, set it to automatically switch from the blue skin to the black skin at 5:00 p.m. and from the black skin back to the blue skin at 7:00 a.m.

    It turns out that there has been some recent discussion on this in the forum and it does work, though it requires some RR configuration changes. I know that with DFX we can now easily switch the skins manually, but I'm wondering if you've given any thought to adding an autoswitch option.

    RR already does this for you. Set one color for "day skin" and one for "night skin" in RR config.

    Yes, I know that I can choose a day skin and a night skin in RRConfig and then manually change the skins when I want to in the skins screen in DFX. I was just thinking it might me neat to have it do the switch automatically at times of the day you designate. It's not a big deal because John has already made it very easy to switch.

    Here's a thread on it for anyone who's interested:

    Question. Autoswitching Skins...

    It looks like it can be setup without too much trouble, but I thought it would be neat if the DFX skin itself had a button for auto switch day/night skins and a place to input the switch times. Now that John has all the different colors going future skin changes will have to made multiple times, so it's probably not worth the effort to include the configuration in the skin.

    Ok, I put the files up on SangreDeThor's server. Hopefully this will take care of being able to download them.

    Some of you may experience problems from switching from the Digital to the analog clock if you downloaded the skin before 3:00 PM on 1/12/07. I had forgotten to copy the 2 different skin files to the temp directory, that allows the switch to work.

    So as of the time mentioned above, the installer, as well as the digital / analog switching has been taken care of.

    As for auto switching the skin, RR is supposed to do this as a time that you set in the RRConfig automatically. There have been some issues with it not working exactly as intended. I think that enough attention has been brought to this in the past week or so, and am thinking a fix will probably be in the next RR version.

    As for having FM on the CarPc, as mentioned, some have completely replaced their Head Unit with the CarPc. There are also a few other good reason for this:

    - It allows everything to be controlled from the same familiar interface.
    - Also instead of just seeing "1" as the preset number on your car stereo, you can actually see the station Name / frequency to press EA: "1- 94.3 Real Radio (Talk)"
    - You can have an unlimited number of presets. You are no longer stuck with just the 6/10 ect that your car stereo is limited to.
    - With a radio capable of RDS hooked to the PC< you can see the name of the song and artist, and press a button to save the name of that song, to review later to go buy or whatever.
    - Switching from MP3, Satellite Radio is seamless, and requires no pressing a button on your car stereo to switch to line, aux ect.
    - It can be easily muted with a tap of the screen
