    -------------------------

    okay guys... I currently have a lot of time indoor because of the bad weather...

    Now I can announce that I have finished the "traffic mixer" this little tricky component mixes GPS (NMEA) data with RDS/traffic data (from radios) into a COM Port for navigation software. (without an expensive "traffic" mouse)

    Asking the radio/frontend developers out there: How to feed the RDS data stream into it ?
    So I included this functionality into my RDS interpreter. So you can distribute your frontend with my version without traffic mixer (just to avoid problems - yes I know there are also CD changer emulators existing for different protocols - but you never know...)
    ...and the end users can change it for the version with mixer.

    A good idea would also be to display a traffic icon if the station (this is the normal behaviour for all single tuner scenarios like seen from the Blaupunkt Travelpilot) contains traffic infos.

    You can download traffic mixer from emule.

    CPCTuner does not restore the last station when resuming from hibernation, all I get is static (quite irritating IMHO) and so I'm forced to select a station..
    Also adding volume up/down button to the left/right of the volume slider would make CPCTuner more TS friendly.

    Thanks for the input, I'm working on the next version of CPCTuner and both requests/features will be fixed/added in the next version.

    if you click/touch on the scrollbar to the left or right of the button, it will move in the desired direction. so imho a button is merely a nice extra, no necessity?


    @putput: in cpctuner you have this lcd-like display for frequency and rds.. is this something you programmed yourself or an existing component you downloaded somewhere? it looks the dogs balls!

    True, but the next version will have more space available on the main window, I've moved a number of buttons/sliders to a seperate settings window that will be available in the next version. No more ini file editing .

    Its something I found on the net from LMD. The link will take you directly to the download page where you can find the dogs balls . But I think its Borland only, the tool from LMD that I'm using is freeware.

    Well, have you tried touching the narrow scrollbar while driving? not an easy task..
    also, what if you you wanted to increase the volume only a little? thats impossible task when using a touchscreen and a scrollbar.

    @putput: Also what does "Failed to set data for 'stand alone'" means? happens when I try to run cpctuner as non administartive user.

    You are really trying to push CPCTuner to its limits !!

    CPCTuner is simply a part of my own frontend that I'm working on. Its developed with different programs; 1 for each function. I have a 'frontend main window' that acts as a server, all apps are started/stopped/controlled via this main app. Communication between apps is handled with tcpip sockets via the main app. This may sounds a bit complicated but infact its not. I have a phone app, tuner app, mp3 player app, movie app, ... all small and simple programs using sockets to communicate. When for example I have an incoming call the phone app sends a message to the server that a call is present, the server sends a pause/mute message to the current audio player (mp3, tuner, ...) and shows a dialog that a call with number xxxx is present and if I wish to answer or not. After I push the accept button the server sends a message to the phone to accept the call, the phone app picks up the call and after finished talking the phone sends a message back to the server to signal that the call has ended. Message from the server is send to the audio player to continue playing and so on.
    Now to come back to your question; to let other people enjoy my great software and not have to wait for my frontend to be ready I inserted 1 parameter in the registry for each frontend application that is default set to 'stand alone', meaning that when started CPCTuner doesn't have to look for a server to respond to and can work as a standalone program. If you decide for this reason (or any other) not to work with CPCTuner anymore you can delete the CPCTuner.exe files and the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CPCSuite from your registry to get completely rid of it. On the other hand, if you are a programmer working on your frontend you can ask me to hand over the tcpip socket protocol that I developed so yo can control cpctuner via sockets. This way it would be possible to use CPCTuner on 1 pc and control it from another pc using ip sockets over network.

    Hope that my explanation is little bit clear .

    hmmm.. interesting idea with the sockets.

    you could make two car-pc's.. one for the frontend and media, and another to process all the engine data, satnav calculations etc. interesting idea!
