      okay so quick question, could I use this to power on my amp AFTER my computer completely boots up in an automated and easy(as in I'm not a programmer!) way?

      I have a feeling that the answer is yes, i just hope its easy enough to implement!

        yes, if you use Ride Runner or Centrafuse....
        if you dont, then you prob will have to code it yourself, (or ask me to do it)

          So to switch on say an AMP with this device, i dont need to draw 12V from the battery and those massive current of amperes?

          For my carpc project ive used 3 relays for various tasks
          [1] Power switch for carpc PSU
          [2] Turn on AMP (remote trigger via DSATX)
          [3] Trigger reverse on the Lilliput 629

          and I'm using those huge 30A one cause i figured i need the amperes - is this not then the case and I could use this device?

            you definitely dont need anything more than this device for the remote wire that actually turns on the amp. that line typically only runs a few mA as its nothing more than a signal to the amp to use the larger power wire to turn on.

              Im actually looking for a board of relays but would like them capable of providing 30A as don't want these huge units.

              OK, so I can trigger my amp, so i assume i could also trigger the lilliput to switch when in reverse, thats 2 down, but i would need to keep the carpc trigger as this supplied the DSATX PSU

              Now the only problem is i only have 10 USB ports and don't want to add a hub..

              My USB ports that are used for are
              [1] Touch Screen
              [2] GPS
              [3] BT phone
              [4] BT keyboard
              [5] TPMS
              [6] DAB+
              [7] ECU Dongle
              [8] Wireless LAN Dongle
              [9] 3G Data Card
              [10] reserved for video capture device

                Isn't the Lilliput's reverse trigger a ground/voltage wire anyway? What ever you use to trigger this device could go direct to the Lilli, couldn't it? Unless there's something else you want to trigger when you go into reverse, you'd just be wasting an input/output on this.

                  i have problem when triggering this so i want to test this again with a relay or diode as when i release the trigger it reverts back to VGA but then turns off the screen.

                  Digressing a little but my 629 wasn't designed for reverse, it's been hacked and work in progress

                  Cheers

                    Ah so, I understand. Hardware hacks are ALWAYS an adventure. Enjoy!

                      Just got mine in the mail a couple days ago and hooked it up tonight. So far everything is good and working as described in the documentation. I've tested all the relays using the test program and they all work. My questions are more about the inputs, do the inputs trigger relays too, or are the inputs more used for indicators in RR? Going to go review the code, just thought I would get it out there. I understand how to hook it up, just wanted a bit more detail on the functions and uses of the inputs.
