    I was originally running CentraFuse but got a bit fed up with it. Having to uninstall it when updating, uncertainty about cost when it's released etc.

    So I started having a play with RoadRunner instead. Once I'd got my head around it's quirks it wasn't too bad to change things. The worst aspect is having to amend the .jpg files. (Might be an idea to remove all the built-in labels from the jpg;s and put the text on as labels in the .skin files instead?)

    Anyway, a couple more pics. As you can see, there's almost no trace of an install from the outside.

    Very nice mate, well done.

    4 weeks is an excellent achievement, took me about 6 months !!

    You still need up doing more on it, guaranteed !!

    LOL - it's guaranteed Tissy.

    For the near future:
    Finish off the "PC On" alarm for if I accidentally switch off and open the door with the PC supply still on (a modified lights alarm).
    Bluetooth phone integration with mic and audio through the radio.
    Write my own skin(?)

    4 weeks isn't too long when you consider I'm not working at the moment and have spent nearly every day on it.

    any troubles with the screen?

    I have the same screen as you. Do you have any problems with the touchscreen and which driver do you use?
    Mine used to only work once in a while, and after not using it for a few month, now the touchpanel doesn't work anymore at all.

    Check out my install:

    Nice build.
    I'm using the driver that came with it (unbranded?) and haven't found any probs yet. Have you tried putting it in a different USB port and reinstalling the driver after?

    Yeah, I tried that, did a complete reinstall of XP and everything, tried all different drivers etc.
    Look for the long (like 20 pages) post for the DWW-700M, a lot of people have issues with the touchscreen.
    Maybe you could email me your drivers and I will give them a go?
    Thanks
