    Hi All

    Almost there with fully functional HTPC as WAF++ CD Spinner. Features are;

    Auto launch of WinAmp on Cd Insert
    Display of Track title, Number, Time elapsed and mode on LCD
    Full remote control via Pronto/Girder

    All works well except....

    IF a CD is playing in Winamp and the CD Eject button on the drive is pressed, Winamp throws a fit and generates a DDE Server error for each outsdtanding unplayed track.

    Now, given that we want this to work just like a regular CD, (and without a screen), thius is a major problem.

    I'm currently working on a way for Girder to trap and deal with these errors but I was wondering if anyone had found another way around this??

    Thanks

    Peter

    Apparently it's pretty standard with Winamp for this to happen. Did a search on Winamp tech support forums and this is the case.

    It's probably compounded by the fact that I've a few plug-ins there allowing winamp talk with girder etc.

    Anyway, found a way in Girder to 'loop' for any number of message so now, when a cd is ejected without stopping, any resultant errors are automatically dealt with and we don't need to see waht's happening on screen - high WAF!
