    Hi guys,

    After setting the overclock widget to reduce the CPU when my screen is off I find the mp3 player distorts the music when I listen. I have had to increase the screen off min speed to 480000 to stop this happening. This of course means I'm not getting the battery saving bonus that setting to 112, 160 or 245 would give me. Does anyone know a better way to set the overclock widget to give me the battery saving effects without distorting music? Or perhaps an mp3 player that uses less CPU?

    I'm running SenseHero 2.1 b4 and using the stock HTC music player.

    Cheers

    You could try MixZing, MortPlayer and RockOn "3" player apps and see if there is any difference.

    I used mixzing and it runs fine at 285, ensure you end tasks on anything else before you turn your dispaly off, any running tasks will use CPU also.

    MixZing works great at 285. Many thanks.

    Yea, any value under 250 is going to give you problems so you should use the next value above 250 that your kernel allows.
