Subject: Automobile ignition auto-stop play?
From: c s (
Date: 2003-04-24

Anyone interested in having this?

I wrote a few lines of code that stops playback when
your car ignition is turned off (provided that the
Archos is plugged into a car power adapter that takes
power away when the car is turned off).

It actually does a pause when the external power is
removed, and if the Archos is still on when the
external power comes back on it starts playback again.

When used in conjunction with the existing
idle-power-off timer, you can automatically stop play
and even automatically restart play if the car
ignition is turned back on before the idle-power-off
function shuts the Archos off.

Can be enabled via an on/off settings option.
