  • SONY RMX5s / RMX6s to RS232 (and rmx4s/x2s)

    I have designed and built a small project

    its a HiR receiver for sony's RMX5s & RMX6s remotes (use google) that converts the received ir to rs232
    to use for anything...

    is there any interest for such a device?

    its tiny... could be intergated into a carpc front end sw
    or grider can trigger of serial strings

    any thoughts?

    I also did one for RMX2s and RMX4s... converts the analog resistance to rs232 strings

    just need to see if there is any use for this (outside of my project)

      i dont use it for this application

      it could be used via girder and serial port plug in
      if memory serves u can learn strings to event on

      i send out strings when the joystick changes...
      i would need to work out extactly what to say

      ie..

      Disc_Next
      Disc_Prev
      Seek_Next
      Seek_Prev

      or simpler then that just a number for each switch

      it depends on the intrest here if someone would want one
      i would work with them

        I'm interested. I'd like to give the RMX6s a try but from what I've read it seems a simple serial IR receiver may not work.

          right a simple ir receiver wont work

          thats why i made this..

          i actually did this for another reason...

          its to interface these 2 remotes (rmx5s/rmx6s) with SONY XES p1

          but it could be used for anything...

          i only have in my possession a rmx5s, but the 6s should return the same
          codes

          let me see how intrest goes on these

          i didnt want to spend $100 on protopcbs and then no one wants any

                So are you planning on offering a complete unit for sale? If you don't get enough interest are you willing to share the schematics? Many of us can make our own PCBs.

                  yes.. im planing to sell complete units...

                  the circuit is pretty easy
                  its all in the code in the microcontroller

                      i need to know what front end you use and how do you navigate now?

                      i cant imagine mouse in a moving car...

                      like i said im not carpc guy, and need you to tell me how you control stuff

                      i know if i had the rmx5s, id want the source button to toggle though sources
                      the next/prev to go to next/prev song, mute to mute... so fourth...

                        The rm-x6s is an excellent input device. It works very well with the Sony head unit, because of the Hi-ir (it’s so efficient!) and for the Griffin/BMW feel like.

                        I’m still trying to put my rm-x4s working well gamepad and girder (with the JoyAxis Plugin). This way I can interface anything with the gamepad (Sony Joystick, Steering wheel, and push buttons or car circuits using its buttons)

                        The girder approach would be cool, because that way anyone could interface the remote with any Front-end.

                        Personally, I use FP (waiting for the new version…! and for the stolen Xenarc…!!).

                        I don't have time (because I'm a VJ, a Musician, an a Electronics Eng. student) but, it is a great project and it would be cool if someone put this to work; we could use the joystick anywhere in the car!

                        Anyone??!!

                          Im still looking for someone who wants to try my device out

                          basicly one needs to buy a rmx6s or rmx5s

                          and work with me

                          seems not that much intrest

                          how about rmx2s rmx4s? wired but usable

                            I used a Sony head unit with RM-X6S before I installed the carputer. I'm currently running without a remote (just the touchscreen), and is in search of a cheap solution to control volume and a few other things.

                            A reuse of the RM-X6S would be an ideal solution...
