    Any chance I could get a copy of your skin complete with the Chevy bowtie emblem? Thanks!

    Your embbeding issue is because of the following line:

    /, A, x, y, w, h, color;RGB
    A01,000,055,1024,570,000

    It should be:

    /, A, x, y, w, h, color;RGB
    A01,000,055,1024,570,000,000,000

    Now, is your skin at 1024x768 ? otherwise that 1024 should be matching the screen resolution or part of the application would be off the screen...

    From what I've heard, FrodoXM doesn't work well with hibernation.. so you should close it before hibernating.. or make your hibernate button close it for you automatically ("CLOSEWINDOW"). Your TV card thingy is definitely your drivers preventing that from hapenning so again you should either switch off tv or make your hibernate button on the TV screen close the TV first (like "MAIN||HIBERNATE").

    Thanks guino

    To got the calc to work I had to add calc;

    B60,309,545,104,90,"LOAD;CALC.SKIN;calc;C:\WINDOWS \system32\calc.exe;calc"

    And now Frodosatelliteradiox works

    B60,309,545,104,90,"LOAD;XM2.SKIN;XM;E:\Program Files\FrodoSatelliteRadioXblack\FrodoSatelliteRadi oX.exe;FrodoSatelliteRadioX"

    So thanks again

    Ok as far as the TV goes, something in winamp is holding something open so I cannot hibernate. This only happens if I use the TV in RR at any time during the day. If I go to task manager and end winamp and restart it everything is back to normal but the play list starts over.

    When I run winamp without RR and I play TV and hit stop and video window closes I still cannot hibernate. But if I exit winamp it will.

    Solutions

    1: find a way so when I push one of the other apps button in TV app it will exit winamp and restart it. That way it would only restart after watching TV.

    2: Give up and stop watching TV.

    3: Buy a new video card and TV card that work which cards do you recommend Guino

    It would be nice if there were video/TV/FM all in one that work with RR.

    I've been meaning to add a command to restart a specific device when needed.. right now you can only do it when starting TV or Radio.. if you use Radio, you can do what you want by telling RRConfig to reset your card when going into Radio. Likely the TV plugin is holding the TV handles and preventing you from restarting.. you can possibly add a "Closewindow" command followed by a "run" command to reload winamp when pressing the exit button on the TV screen.. if you want to try this, I can give you some pointers, but it will likely screw up the "resume" feature when leaving the TV.. there's a good chance that if instead of restarting you used HIBERNATE, that the force-hibernate feature could work for you.. in any case I intend to improve the restart/power off functions in RR to perform a full shutdown of RR before invoking the system calls to restart/power off..

    Thanks guino

    As for the tv thing I am just going to get a new card someday.



    Is it possible to load an small application on the appearance menu because I am not using it?

    If so do you have a sample line to do it?

    Well I did it; I embedded the digital radio scanner BC796D display screen into my audio player. Now I need to do it to my tv and radio.

    Didn't get to it fast enough... glad you got it working. I'm planning to expand embbeding support sometime soon.. too much stuff going on at the same time.
