    A few issues (bugs?) in 1.0.4.4

    Here are a couple things I've noticed over the past few days.

    1 - Navigation & hibernate
    I've got my system setup to Hibernate, and that works just fine. SD is also configured to hibernate and start at the Nav screen. That all works fine. However, when I resume, the Nav screen shows the position of the GPS at the time of hibernation. I've verified that I have a lock using another GPS app.
    If I go to any other screen in the nav module and back to the map view, the position is updated from the live GPS data.

    2 - Music Queueing
    At the Dallas meet Sunday, I queued three albums to the playlist, for a total of 18 songs. I left this queued playlist for a few days and enjoyed it. Yesterday, I queued another album to add some variety. When driving, I was wondering why nothing from teh newly queued album was playing. I checked the playlist and it was 4400+ tracks, all from the three albums I queued up Sunday, repeated over & over & over again.
    I haven't messed with this much, but I think it's repeating all the tracks that are queued upon resume from hibernate.

    Also, I have some albums that add all the tracks twice when I select it.

    3 - Indexing music
    I have a single HDD in my setup with two partitions: C: for OS & Apps and M: for media & file storage. M: is mounted in the My Music folder, so that I can access music when browsing by directory, as changing the media path wasn't working at all. My MP3s are stored in M:\Music and there are about 4000-4500 files currently, all in folders by either the album name or Artist\Album.
    When I went to index music, I got a buffer overflow error (or something similar). I never tried it again, because I was able to access my music files and such.

    This may be related to the music queuing issues in #2 above.


    I'm hoping to be able to pull the PC inside today to be able to investigate the music issues further. I can't do much witht he Nav issue inside, though.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?

    I can't duplicate 1. For whatever reason, it sounds like its not able to connect to your GPS when starting up. This may be just because your GPS does not initialize when the startup routine begins, however, you should've gotten a message box saying this if this was the case. Run with -verbose and send me the log after having the problem. There should be couple lines saying PerformGPSStartup, followed by the failure of connecting to the COM port. The reason why it works after that is because if there is no connection to the GPS when entering the fullscreen navigation module, StreetDeck will always try to reconnect.

    I'll have to look into 2 later.

    3. Run with -verbose and send me the log when this happens.

    For what it's worth, I'm having the same issue #1 that DP described above.

    I'm able to duplicate it exactly as DP described: SD startup options configured to start on NAV screen, and SD configured to hibernate on power shut off. Upon resuming from hibernation, GPS is stuck at last position. No error messages, nothing. I even let it sit for over half an hour driving home, but it only started working when I switched to a different menu, then back to NAV.

    Perhaps changing the code to just force SD to do a GPS reconnect every time after resuming from hibernation might do the trick...

    SD already DOES force a GPS reconnect every time it resumes from hibernation which is why its so strange.

    I really need to see a log file to see whats really going on.

    OK, I've actually had time to look into this for once.

    First of all, the first issue hasn't cropped up since updating to 1.0.4.6, but I've also had the truckPC inside to tweak and reload my music after a lengthy re-tagging spree.

    I must say that the album art extraction utility is a kluugey solution at best. Is there any plan to have SD support album art embedded in teh ID3 tags? I've gone to great lengths to embed the art and save a folder.jpg with each album, so I'm covered for now. I'd think embedded art would be a much better solution, but I have no idea about the difficulty, as I'm no code warrior.

    Regarding issue #3....
    Attached are two logs created today. The first log was made without the -verbose option and it's showing errors when I cleared my music index. The second log was made using the -verbose option and I re-indexed my music collection and got the buffer overflow error as I described above.
    In teh attached ZIP are both logs, as well as a screenshot of the buffer overflow error.

    I think this may have to do with a long pathname or directory name. In my experimentation, had one folder named Dr. Demento - Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection. I got the buffer overflow error when indexing. I shortened the directory name to Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection, cleared & reindexed and got no error.

    I looked in the verbose log and saw what file it was choking on, and it had a long subdirectory name. I shortened it up, cleared the index and re-indexed again and it worked fine...

    OK, now I'm going nuts.....

    I've been trying to get some music loaded onto the PC and indexed correctly in StreetDeck.

    First of all, I had to clear out the index several times (four, I think, but I wasn't counting) to get the music index completely cleared out. That's a pain, to say the least.

    One other thing that's driving me nuts...
    I have a folder named Guitar World's 100 Greatest Guitar Solos. I only have 75 of them in there, and they are all tagged with the correct album name. When I re-index music all goes well and i don't get the dreaded Buffer Overflow.
    When I go to select music by album, This is listed in albums FORTY-TWO TIMES. The folder is only in there once, and there's only one copy of each track and they all have the same album name in the ID3 tag. Hell, the album name is the same in each of the 42 listings I see....
    I haven't gone through and selected each of the 42 instanced of this album, but the ones I have all appear to have all 75 tracks as part of the album.

    I have my HDD broken up into two partitions:
    C:\ is pretty obviously the boot partition. It's 20GB in size.
    M:\ is my repository for inatall files, videos and music. I mounted this as a folder named MEDIA in the My Music\_Indexed folder, since I can't get the Media Paths to work correctly witht he M:\Music folder (I've tried, but I may be doing something wrong).
    Could this drive mounted as a folder possibly be playing into the problems I'm seeing?

    I do the same thing as you(I'm only using the trial). I have a C: partition and a E: partition with the folder Media inside of it. Well the application for changing the paths did not work for me, I would change all the paths hit save and it wouldnt write them to the file. So I started searching for the config file that might house these paths, checked the registry etc and never found it. I then opened up the media path program and didn't change any paths, I just hit SAVE. Well this created a file in the streetdeck directory called something like MediaPath.dat, open that file in a text editor and you can edit the paths manually.

    Well, that explaines something, at least.
    I tried what you did and it's not creating the MediaPath.dat file, though. I'm running v1.0.4.6 (latest). Are you also on the same version?

    Could you (or anyone else that has this file) post theirs here in a ZIP or something? I'm going friggin nuts, man!!!!
    I'd really rather not do this kluugey mounting a drive in a folder. It's kluugey, and I don't want kluugey.

    Thanks.

    A-HA! SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!

    OK. Here's what I discovered. The Shortcuts that are created by the SD installation don't include a Start In folder. As a result, when the SDConfig.EXE is run from the shortcut, it saved MediaPath.DAT in the user directory (In my case, C:\Documents and Settings\Darque Pervert).
    When I ran the executable straight from the Streedeck folder, I got the results I needed.

    I've gone through and added the "Start In" path to all the StreetDeck shortcuts, so hopefully that will resolve some issues.

    So now I've got the unindexed (import) music path set to M:\MUSIC. I think it's copying all my music files over... I don't think that's what I want, ultimately. But at least I'm on the right track as far as getting this together.

    I also attempted to index all my music with WMP10, and it does the same thing with the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos, although each instance of the album only shows a couple of tracks each, some duplicated. It makes no sense...
    It may very well be an issue with those particular files.

    [EDIT]
    I also see other albums that this happens to. It's always compilation albums where there are multiple artists. None of my other albums appear to have this problem.....

    MediaPaths.dat contains all the media paths. It is a simple ASCII file containing one path per line. The MediaPaths.dat file should be in the C:\Program files\StreetDeck folder. If its not there, StreetDeck will use the default directories.

    SDConfig.exe is a simple program that simply edits these media paths and writes this ascii file. It should be run from C:\program files\StreetDeck, otherwise it may not save the file in the correct place. I'm not sure why the installer would set the working path to something else. I haven't been able to duplicate this yet. Running it directly from C:\program files\StreetDeck should correct this issue.

    FYI: a sample mediapaths.dat file is given below
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\StreetDeck
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Music\_Indexed
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Videos
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Pictures
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Music\My Playlists
