OK ppl, another fix/setting
Got DVD working fine using powerdvd, and i've moved the Radio from the first screen (i dont use it) and put DVD in its place, so its on the first page, button 3.
Change or Add the below line in menu.txt
&mainbut3=DVD@icons\dvd.png@LOAD;powerdvd_playe r.s kin;C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\powerDVD.exe;DVD&
NOTE: &mainbut3 is the button location
this will work the same for windvd, just change the location
PS this may have been covered before, cant seem to find it.
Thank you for your answer. I managed to make a button which opens the external DVD player skin. Power DVD also opens but something goes wrong. I don't know what exactly is going wrong but no DVD gets played and the mouse cursor keeps jumping into the upper left corner. I can only exit by pressing CTRL, ALT DEL. Any clue what causes this?
I'm also integrating Destinator 7 into the UF skin. I managed to start Destinator 7 from the 'main menu', but when Destinator 7 opens it does not open in the window in which it supposed to be opened, but shifted a bit to the lower right corner. Strange thing is that Destinator 6 opens correctly (not shifted).
For your destinator issue, make sure you have your rrconfig setup properly. I dont have it installed on this computer but in the "GPS" section i believe, there is a "window" section that you have to type the "Destinator 7" name into.
The reason it probably works for version 6 is because it already has the window "destinator 6" typed into it. Find that and replace it with the exact name of the destinator 7 window name.
To find the window name, just look at the top of your destinator window and it should say something like destinator7 or Destinator_7. I dont know as i dont have that software. That should fix it though.
Can powerdvd run fine with a dvd movie in it without going through the frontend? If so, do you have any keyboard inputs that might be pressed? Maybe you have to recolaborate your Touchscreen.
Im certainly no expert but from what i understand D7 is very different from D6 as regards what has to be done to embed it, i believe you need a "wrapper" http://www.digital-car.co.uk/forum/s...ead.php?t=8729 all is explained here
THNX a lot both of you!
I tried different names before, but they all didn't work. I seemed to me that something else than the window name was wrong. I'm going to find out what that wrapping thing is.
BTW: How can I find out what the real window name is? I think this will come in handy when I'm trying to integrate a DVD player.
I'm using D7wrapper now and I figured out how to shift the screen position into the location I want. When I start D7wrapper Destinator opens exactly where I want. But when I open D7wrapper via the FU in RR I got the screen as depicted below. It looks rubbish. Any Idea how to fix this?
It seems that Destinator opens in the reserved area, but directly after that the screen jumps a bit down and to the right.
Not much support here anymore :(
I saw several screen shots of the FU skin which have some kind of logo in the upper right corner. In my FU skin this logo does not appear. Do I need to configure something?

that should help you out with your logo problem.

also when i exit the dvd skin, my mouse cursor disappears untill i exit roadrunner.
any fixes for this?
