    Very nice install! How is the Windows 7 MC going? I was having issues with it taking too long to initialize (after resuming from hibernation). I also didn't like it that it didn't resume to the same song, not even same playlist, not even last section (although I *think* there's a hack for that).

    Thank you.
    I think there is no "one answer." All front-ends have there pros and cons some more then others. Based off these pros and cons we pick what works best for us, the end user. I did and do have some problems with WMC but there are more pros then cons. Resuming from hibernation works, no problems. The main problem for me is WMC scans for new albums on every hard boot. The more albums you have the longer it takes. When my PC comes out of hibernation there's about 2 secs of load. The resume the same song doesn't bother me. I use the "Play favorites" which it plays all of your favorite music.

    This changes the size in the task bar.
    What I am trying to do is change the size of 13 function buttons bottom right on WMC or even remove some that I do not need such as rec and others

    PC new location

    I moved the pc under passenger seat. I had to remove the Driver seat to run the back up camera VGA cable to the head unit.

    Running the Backup VGA cable and backup wire

    So much for two wires, but you have to pay the cost...
