    Yes indeed i am alive barely, my carPC literally blew up about 2 months ago. I started a new job at Johnson and Johnson so that has been taking up a lot of my time. I don't think i will be back in the carPC business for a while with me needing a new computer and that i still dont have a god damn touch screen. But you never know. Il check back when i get. Hope all is going well.
    It's nice to hear from you, Sangre. I've been wondering what happened to you. Sorry to hear about your carputer. Hopefully, it wasn't that hard drive I sent you that blew up. Good luck with the new job.

    There are new members in that are answering the new members questions so leave it alone.

    This thread is at the point where it needs to be deleted and start over. Nobody wants to spend 5 days reading.

    If you don't like the question somebody ask - SKIP IT and say nothing. It's easier than taking time to send somebody to search.

    My pet peeve - Sorry.

    If you don't like the rant - SKIP IT and say nothing. It's easier than taking time to post about it.








    Dammit now look what you made me do

    Hahahah actually thats kinda funny I used the search, NOT the Forum search, but when clicking the search button, entered, into the Google search, "Multiple iGuidance Instances" and the answer was in the 5th hit.

    The forum search does suck royally, but the Google one works great!

    I personally find it helpful when someone answers a question that someone has in the thread. Sure most times the answer can be found with a little searching, but now and then, if it's not one of the really bad questions like "This Doesn't work! Help" hahha

    As for this thread, I had though about closing and starting a new one, but that would just be a mess to have everything in 2 different places. SUre the thread is long, but using the thread search tool, makes it a one stop location for the info you seek.

    Speaking of big, Doing a little searching on the forums, the DigitalFX thread is the largest thread on the MP3 car forums, and also has the most number of views of any thread! Wow, thats just crazy hehe the Thread was only started around 6 months ago!

    I have some new stuff I am working on for the skin finally

    - Advanced search pop-up screen that you can search for keywords in a song title, artist name, search by genre, by number of times a song is played and some other stuff. This search is done with a database, so even searching for keywords in a song title, in my 20,000 songs takes just a second or 2.

    - Fixing the weather so the images for temp, sat, and radar pre-load correctly

    - The Mixer screen is fixed and has the correct images with the skin, with the adition of indicators showing what preset is selected.

    - Working on the iTunes style album art browser

    There are a few other little things, but thats the majority of it for now.

    That sounds great. Can't wait until the release!

    Do you think creating a RTFM sticky will aid those looking for a Q&A? I would be more willing to assist in this effort as I am almost finished reading this entire thread and have learned a lot by doing so.

    I think the reason why this thread is so popular is because it is also the most widely used skin. After going through all the other skins out there it was more than obvious to me which one was the most intuitive and complete.

    OK, now that I have kissed your a** enough - lol - get back to work and release the new one !!!!


    (thanks for the hard work by the way)

    Hi, I got silabs radio working but no RDS. I have roadrunner, digitalfx skin, winamp, do I need to install something else or make a confiruration change to enable RDS (I am in Canada just in case that makes a difference to config)?

    RDS (for the silabs) is not well supported yet. Try "Iceradio" in the plug-ins sections; i got the best RDS from it so far. RDS (on the silabs) also depends on signal strenth/quality so do the mod to hook up the car antenna.

    GPS Gauges

    I did a search hoping to find the solution but came up empty.

    Its about the GPS Gauges. I followed the instructions in the FAQ of the help file and setup the com port splitter. But still nothing. When I run iguidance by itself in windows it also can't find the GlobalSat BT-359 when the spiller service is enabled and iguidance is setup to point to the specific port setup with the splitter. However, within digitalfx iguidance works fine. Is it the bluetooth ports vs a non bluetooth connection ports? Just guessing. Any help ?

    Are you using the XPORT that is in the DFX directory? Do a search for it. I found using the latest Xport to be a bit buggy and has not worked for me.

    Here is how mine is set up which has worked everytime:
    COM4 is my GPS (You can change this in the device manager)
    COM9 is iGuidance (Anything higher than COM9 will not work!)
    COM10 is DigitalFX (Change this in the GPS section of the GUI RR config)

    TIP: Place a XPORT short cut to the in "Startup" in the Start Menu to make it start automatically. (Only needed if you use the Xport in the DFX folder.

    Good Luck!
