    A3 8V aftermarket reversing camera retrofit

    When I was searching for an A3 8V e-tron to buy last year, my wife was insistent that it had a reversing camera. This limited our search, but I was able to compromise by promising I'd fit one of the plug-and-play aftermarket kits. I settled on the full kit supplied by Empirical...

    Help - P3103 V157 - Motor Intake Manifold Flap - EGR Valve...How do i solve?

    Hi guys, Just wanted to pick up this excellent thread after a fair while, as I've been reading it a lot recently. My IMF failure was picked up way back in 2009, but it's only now I've got round to sorting it out! I bought my new Pierburg IMF from Murrays Direct for £177. Our 54-plate Sportback...

    Free RNS-E skin for Windows Media Player

    Hi guys, Haven't posted for a while, but had to share this - an RNS-E skin for Windows Media Player I developed about 7 years ago :) I used to be a software developer and was experimenting with programming WMP. I hit on the idea of developing a skin from a screenshot of the RNS-E. It's...

    XCarLink users: Windows software to manage MP3s

    Thanks - I was responsible for the RNS-E MP3 Manager that I wrote a few years back. I would like to back into it as it still attracts lots of downloads each week, but haven't been able to! The RNS-E version is a bit buggy though and there isn't any support for SD card readers in most modern PCs...

    XCarLink users: Windows software to manage MP3s

    Version 1.0.3 is now available, featuring up to 16 CD folders. I think this is now the maximum, unless anyone else disagrees! Certainly it's a busy window and couldn't really take any more. Also included is a remove duplicates function and some fixes have been made to the menu functions and...

    Sweet - cheers Gary! I've got a few more bits on the list so will get through those in the coming weeks. As ever, if you think of any must-haves then do let me know.

    XCarLink users: Windows software to manage MP3s

    I've uploaded a fresh installation file - I think the previous one was corrupt for some reason. I have noticed that on my XP laptop, the install doesn't work if you click "Run" at the download prompt. Instead, press "Save" first so that it downloads correctly, then run it from there. Let me...

    XCarLink users: Windows software to manage MP3s

    Quick update to this - I'm testing a 12 CD folder version (the changes weren't enormous but lengthy enough!) plus a few more bits and pieces. If anyone has read this thread and wants to provide feedback or stay in touch for further updates, I've created a small Facebook page for people to do...

    XCarLink users: Windows software to manage MP3s

    I recently installed an XCarLink device into my Honda, and so far it's been great. Before buying it I did my homework to understand how MP3 files are organised in the six "CD" folders, and decided to put together a quick Windows desktop app to try and make managing it easier. I've done something...

    PSN Network Hacked!

    It's also been pointed out that many people will use the same PSN login credentials for their email accounts, so these may also be at risk. Your PSN login has your email address as the username and this means that any PSN users here should think about changing their passwords. I've just been...
