    Hey, I thought everyone would be interested to know about all of the additional work that is being poured into this by the community. Have a look here: http://www.xmfan.com/viewforum.php?f=31

    chut: yeah I was going to suggest that you have the libs installed correctly if it is even running at all.. I just saw this today, so I'm glad you figured it out.

    BTW I'm going to be revisiting this app again soon! Stay tuned

    Hey Gork...

    I am a Flash Programmer, not the best designer in the world, but I know how to program in it. In fact I have been teaching Flash at a local post-secondary school where I live for the past 4 years.

    I would be willing to give you a hand getting the Flash front end done. But like I said, I am not the best designer in the world. I have used Flash to talk with other languages as well, but I don't know too much about VB...although I have REALLY been wanting to learn and in fact had already bought 2 books to learn it, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Cheers!

    Thanks to the efforts of chut and Floyd Walker to do the testing and coding, the "should have been 1.0" 2.0.3 release of XMPC-CAR is available in source and binary form. The post at the top of this thread has been updated to reflect this.

    This version includes a built-in configuration GUI to choose the COM port of your XM-PCR (if your com port is not listed, type it in), the fields displayed in the channel list, and the colors and fonts of everything.

    These two guys deserve the credit for getting this up to speed. I am just glad the code was useful to someone. Perhaps their efforts will be useful to all the people out there using this software.

    gork,
    Do you plan to write perl or python wrapper for your module ? It would be nice if I can use it in pycar. I have Fm usb module written, so looking for something simple to get XM as well. Let me know if you're interested.

    jbors: If I knew python, I would jump into pycar head first Unfortunately, I am a perl guy, so the language feels very alien to me. I am working on an SDL backended perl app similar to what you are doing. It will have an XM component. When it gets done, I think it'd be very easy to rewrite the xm component in python for someone who knows both languages.

    To be honest, this app is a bunch of really bad VB code. The logic isn't even really self contained -- it even uses the listbox widget as storage. I don't think it'd even be possible to wrap this into a library without a total rewrite anyway.

    I understand. Personally I do library first and then wrap functionality above it.
    It ends up with much cleaner interface and better usability.
    I think that SDL is a good choice. Sure that perl should have good wrappers for it.
    Are you planning to have it working on Linux ?
