No Problem, Thanx for reposting it, I thought I had put it in the right spot, but then again, I could be very wrong on where I put it. I'm gonna start working on a new in python, as I think I may be able to get more fine grained control in Python, I'm most likely gonna use one I have for rhythmbox for reference, and I plan on adding length and position to the output.
