Thanks for the ongoing bug fixes. I note that you hav'nt provided the fix for the sudden closure of VDJ. When you click on the bullets to tick or untick Covers, Video, Music or Karaoke. I just started to regain my confidence in using VDJ then the damn thing closed half way through some one singing Paradise by the dashboard light and as always a crowded venue. All i did was untick Music, clicked on the bullet to tick Karaoke and VDJ completey shut down. I checked the computer reports to see if it was starting any process at the time of the shutdown, there was no unusual activity. I understand that this was resolved but note other members have reported the same issue in the last week and trying to find a work around. I concluded it was the DWM process, however turning this to manual has only helped short term for the previous four gigs which were Karaoke Disco and went with out incident.

One question, I did not install Rev 5 due to the problems with the DAC-3 controller. Can I install Rev 6 over Rev 4? Or should I install Rev 5 and then Rev 6?
Thanks.

EARLY CHRISTMASS!!!

but i still want a puppy.

Is also the freezing problem with videomixing solved ?

I have the problem only when I use the Hardware Acceleration.
Without it, no problems but then I canĀ“t use videoeffects.

I THOUGHT Christmas had came early for me but I was wrong. After installing this update, and enablilng the native option for my Denon HPC4500 IT still freezes up, on my desktop and and labtop. I quess it's back to midi for me.

Same here. VDJ locked up so heavily that I had to shut down the PC to get out of it.

I was working it hard though, trying to push it. Adding cue points and scratching.

After I rebooted, just using the HC4500 for browsing, loading and playback it was OK.

I like the song titles on the HC4500 display as you browse the library.

Will the next version of VDJ support the buttons on the HC4500 more fully? I notice that some buttons don't do anything, or don't do what I would expect.

ID3 v2.4!!! :D I was waiting for that one, now i really feel listened to. Thank you, i'm off testing it all.

word is the Denon is looking to fix its buggy controller however there isn't much we can do as the problem is directly related to the firmware of the controller. Denon is aware of the bugs and has said they are working on it. For now the controller only works in xp.

Posted Mon 03 Dec 07 @ 7:36 am
Forgot one thing: THANKS FOR THE UPDATE !!!

Complaining is easier

:--)

Posted Mon 03 Dec 07 @ 7:40 am
woot woot! Aniother rev:) Not that I have ever had a crash with rev5. Might aswell download:)

Thanks guys

Posted Mon 03 Dec 07 @ 8:06 am
Woo hoo, Sort thread fixed, yay! MP4 support, save me having to add all the splitters and codecs on next re-install, that was a right pain last time, well done.

NOTE To Webmaster, My "Download Centre" button still isn't glowing to tell me there is a new download! =)

I use XP and controller works flawlessly using midi, hopefully Denon will get an update soon. So it's back to midi for me, I posted this problem in software forum a week ago but have not gotten much response, does anyone know what midi mapping setting are used for the reduce loop length and raise loop lenght arrows

I appreciate the hard work the developers do, so thank you guys

I also work with xp currently, I will try it now and I'll let you know if denon still freezes.
