 (Entry last updated on September 15th, 2002)

The Restore DC/Car Visuals feature is meant to toggle the screen back to a visual screen (rather than a text screen) when you start the player in your car.

If you have enabled this feature but it does not seem to be working, please do the following:

First, make sure you're using the player software version 2.0 beta 13 or later, and that you are running the Hijack kernel version 293 or later.

Then, make sure that you have selected one text mode (such as Info:Track) and one visual mode (such as Info:Transient) directly from the player's main menu while it's running in the car.

Then, make sure you've actually enabled the Restore DC/Car Visuals feature from the Hijack's menu screen. After that, it should work on every reboot in the car.

If it still doesn't work, try adding the following entries to your config.ini file (instructions for editing the config.ini can be found here):


Note that the above is a bit of overkill, at the current time we don't know which one of the lines above will fix the problem. It is possible that only one or two of them is necessary. More research is needed on this topic.

If it still doesn't work, please check to make sure that you have not forced the player into AC/Home mode using the Force AC/DC Power Mode feature in Hijack. Also check to make sure that your player does not have the AC power sensor switch problem.
