Can't wait for ths source!
I'm not much of an artist either, but I like blue

Yes, it is for 640x480 (I have a DennisK screen). Does anyone have any suggestions for color scheme? I am not an artist, but I can usually get something that looks somewhat good if I have a model to base it off.
The word thing annoys me too. I will fix it for the next revision, hopefully.

i'll work on a flash frontend for ya, in blue (coz i like it too )
heres some thoughts on my behalf:
Add a way to display the image of the cd.
The playlist box needs fixing, cant select a song, and it always jumps back to the song currently playing.
A way to save radio presets from the frontend.
other than that, looken good!
also, i can easily fix the prob with buttons only working on text, a common flash mistake by ppl.
CD Images? Like the box art? Is there a database of those somewhere or something?
Yeah, the playlist thing was intended as more of a display thing rather than a control thing. I figured with a touchscreen you couldn't really pick a song off the list.
On the radio presets, I guess I could add that, but then you wouldn't get the station type and callsign unless I added a way to type those in as well. I will think about a good way to do it though.
I just learned Flash to work on this, so I'm sure I made a pile of common Flash mistakes... :-)
Just wanted to update people on what I have been working on...
I crashed my car (see the "I crashed my car thread"), so the computer is sort of on hold until I get a new car, but I haven't stopped working on the software. I just added Phidget RF Tag support, which is pretty neat. It lets you wave a little disc (like 1" diameter) at a reciever and it automatically switches playslists. The idea is that people would throw the disc in their wallet or something, and wave their wallet at the dash and have the software switch to their music. It works pretty well right now, I should have a release with it included real soon.
I also added location support for radio presets. That means you can have a bunch of presets for home as well as some presets for places that you visit often. I wanted something like this because my GF lives 3 hours away, and I hate that I have to go channel surfing on the way there.
I am also looking to make the MP3 playlist display better, probably by moving it fully into flash.
Any other feature requests? Somone PM'd me about wrapping the radio stuff in an activeX control, so they could use it in VB, and I am almost done with that, just need to do some more testing. That way, some of the other programs out there can add D-Link USB radio support, which would be good.
Look for a new release sometime next week.
hey, your from boston.
