    You seem to have lost all my formatting lines from the skin files, which will knock out some of iDrive config's abilities.
    Oh thats the problem. It happend the first time I used the config tool. I dissabled "weather" and "phone" in the config screen and when I tried to put them back on, they didn't work anymore. I made no big deal out of it since I wasn't planning on using them anyway. But this happend before I made changes on any of the skins.

    No the buttons have no function. They only illuminate. Maybe in the future I do something with the volume knob but for now I'm just planning to put an Ibus controller in there to make the knobs on my steering wheel function.

    That'll be it then.

    RR skin editor won't recognise any of my unique formatting and by the look of things just deletes it.

    I'll see if I can combine my .skin files with your graphics and skin changes.

    OK, I hope you can get it to work. How did you make the skin? Plain text? Or do you use another program instead of roadrunner skin editor?

    Wow, that's a nice installation. It would be cool if you could get those buttons working for a stock feel.

    yeah man, those buttons have gotta work, either phidgets or girder or even an x-key setup, can't be too hard... other options are a keyboard matrix board or aeven a joystick hack can provide the input....

    when those buttons work, that'll make it real nice....
