    what gps software are you using m8 ? If your using something that can connect to RR, then you wont need a port splitter, but if your using IG or something else then you will need to get a splitter and set up the gps in rrconfig

    open up your freedrive folder, locate a file called sdk.ini , open it and amend the bottom so it sends the speed and heading and sats to roadrunner, you do this by sticking the window name you want FD to send it to.. ie..

    FDSPEED=RoadRunner (note:- not roadrunner or RoAdRuNNeR)
    FDSATS=RoadRunner
    FDHEADDEG=RoadRunner <-- cant remember the right one, but you want heading in degrees sent.

    hope this helps m8

    Hi m8, yes it will be a option but I havent done it yet, or infact choosen the button sounds.. most likely have 3 sounds, one for the back button (it is whoosh at the mo) one for the bottom buttons and the up/down in the middle and one for the rest. The code is already there to turn them on and off, just need the rest doing. If you have any nice sounds then let me know and I will include them :-)

    Yes I agree with ccsnet about having a way to replace some of the indicators for others (like phone signal and batt for network)

    Found it...

    fscommand("GETPLPOS","") will get the playlist position after clicking so the focus can be properly set on the flash list.

    ie: right now if you were to click on channel 42, if you use XMCHAN;42 it will tune to it but then the flash audio skin will highlight position 42 in the flash list (this would be channel 70 something because not all channel #'s are used..). To highlight the correct position, poll RR using GETPLPOS then highlight that position in the flash list.

    So to do the basic XM in FU:

    1) Call "XM" command to load up XM screen and initialize receiver.
    optional: add configurable option to call XMRESET (resets xm receiver) command when skin loads or leave it up to the user to add in the skin source themselves if they need it.

    2) Add extra labels: XMSTATION (station name) and XMGENRE (station genre) for station info. XMSAT (satellite signal) and XMTER (terrestrial signal) for signal information. Perhaps display this in a mini graph similar to what you do for amount of battery left?

    3) Add current channel #: When you get the channel clicked on, you can then display this. I do not believe there is a skin label for the current channel #.

    4) When clicking on a playlist position (if it is the same/similar as your RAD skin), call XMCHAN;<channel> instead.
    ie: gototrack = "XMCHAN;" + tn6;
    if (tn6 <> _root.TRACKNUMBER) {
    fscommand(gototrack);
    }

    note: for some reason when I was messing with the RAD skin, I added a fscommand("PLAY"); on teh line after fscommand(gototrack). I do not quite remember the reasoning for this.

    5) Ideally, move the album art to the top flash "bar" as this will display the channel's logo. So if you're not on the xm screen, you can still see it. Perhaps, make this configurable only for XM/SIRIUS since it would be crappy for audio :P. ie: if in XM mode, enable album art sprite in top flash bar until another player is opened (ie: audio) since this would kill XM.

    6) The pause button should function as normal if it actually calls the PAUSE command when clicked then calls RESUME when clicked again. For XM/Sirius, this will mute/unmute the line. Not sure what to do with the actual mute button. Perhaps make the icon switchable if in XM mode and change it to a recall button to recall the last station?


    This will get basic XM functionality in FU. For Sirius, call SIRIUS to start the Sirius skin and all other commands above will work by simply changing XM to SR, ie: XMSTATION --> SRSTATION. Once this works, if you'd like you can do the custom favourites lists, etc.... I just started with this since it will get basic functionality going.

    If you want to take it half a step further (before full out implementation of favourites lists), remove the last line of the playlist and switch it to configurable 'favourite' buttons. Create a config file where you can list 5 or 6 favourite channels (or make it unlimited and have it scroll like the menu does ), then on each button display the channel info and when clicked, call XMCHAN;<CHAN>. To display the station info on a button, use the XMINFO;<CHAN>;<FORMAT> skin command. Perhaps make the <FORMAT> definable in the same favourites config file.


    Let me know what you think...

    Some issues with the Radio Screen

    1) When you click on Radio, nothing auto-plays. Perhaps it should default to the first saved station or something?
    2) If you click Scan, seek doesn't work until you click on "play" first.
    3) Not sure how to get saved stations to play. Clicking on them doesn't work nor does hitting "play"
    4) The frequency rolls off the screen, so you'd see "107.9" then "790" then "0". Looks weird.
    5) What does "surf" do?
    6) Would be nice to be able to have album art for radio stations somehow.
    7) When you go back to main screen from radio screen, main screen still shows artist of last mp3 played rather than station name.
    8) Why do my stations save with a number next to the name eg "10-Invicta". I named it "Invicta" where does the "10-" come from?

    stupid question here.. how do i change the color of the skin.

    I went to the color changer thing and went top change day color.

    It brings up a box with all the shades of colors to choose from, but it wont select any of the colors i choose. And when i hit save, it just automatically chose black...

    Maybe this isnt a finsihed section of the skin?

    Overall its a wonderful skin.. cant wait for the final release.
    I wish i knew how to do fiberglass work...

    It all depends which radio your using with RR, some behave better than others, on mine (hqct) it auto plays the last setting when you press radio, it scans through the channels, surf plays the first few seconds of each stored station then moves to the next, unsure about the number thing, thats most likely a setting in rr.. I dont think you have any chance with album art, maybe in 10 years time.. who knows.. will expand the text holders to make sure everything fits one..

    You need to update your flash player.. if your colour setting isnt working or your not getting icons on the main screen then its defo your flash player..

    ok, open up internet explorer and google for flash player and update it there, you may need to reboot.. dont use any other browser like firefox to update as it doesnt work.

    hope this helps
