  • Pioneer IP Bus and Creative Nomad MP3 Player?

    Ok, my Nomad II has a wired remote control so I was wondering if this can be interfaced with the Pioneer IP bus to control playback on the nomad... How would I start to figure out if this can be done? I am asking on a nomad site to find out how the remote works...

    Thanks in advance,
    BigB
    I guess it's loud but I can't hear anymore!
    Where else can you find a pair of 10" subs hittin 150db?

      Hey

      Ok, when I did a search all I was coming up with is how to use the IP Bus for AUX input only... I want to be able to use the Head Unit to change the tracks as well... I currently have it connected in the AUX but use the wired remote to change the tracks and such... Just wondering if I would simply wire the remote into the IP Bus as well...

      Thanks,
      BigB

        Dang

        I got a reply back from Chris Lewis (Pyramid-Audio Austin, TX) and he said it cannot be done... Well, I can keep it the way I have it for now unless someone else can figure it out some day...

        Thanks,

          Basically you would need to reverse engineer the signals used by Pioneer on the IP-BUS.
          If you dont know how to do that, then give up now It will take a you a long time, and a lot of effort. There have been quite a few attempts to do this sort of thing in the past.
          Try a search on Yahoo groups for IP-BUS, also sourceforge iirc.
          Failing that, a lot of work has been done with the Sony unilink protocol http://gnunilink.sourceforge.net
          They have mapped most of the protocol, and you can control winamp with the ony headunit, and get information back such as track name and play length. If you really want this control, you might have to change HU.

            Hey

            I was told is uses serial data and that we would have to make a convertor to take that type of communication and convert it to the resistance out for each button that I would need... Sounds like it would cost a few hundred to get it to work and I was looking for a quick and easy route... Doh... Guess I was just a little too dumb...

            If I get anywhere I will let you all know...

              Whoever told you that, really wants to be taken with a pinch of salt with everything...
              The Sony stick interface (and most of their remotes) uses resistance values for control. Cant think of any wired Pioneer remotes, just IR ones.

                Hey

                That was what I would think, that is how most data is passed either with resistance for a function on a length of time the data stream is sent... Worst case scenario I burn up the IP Bus or the Nomad...

                So how would I test what the IP bus is sending out? Put a meter on it and try accessing the funtions? Or will it not send unless it senses a device attached to it?

                Thanks again,
