    BTW, have you tried Traffic Cams out yet?
    Have them running on my desktop now. Pretty cool

    To bad I don't have internet in the car yet. I didn't find it really nessecary but this would be a good reason to have it.

    But now I can still look at them before leaving home to see wat's going on.

    If it doesn't work with these codes, chances are it doesn't, try running iBus Analyzer (link in post above).

    -Temporarly change you screen to 1024x768 or it won't fit on the screen.
    -Run the program.
    -choose COM port of ibus controller.
    -Flip your lights on and of to see if anything happens.
    -Reset all fields.
    -Turn lightswitch on.
    -Press analyze
    -I had 2 packages there, Copy one of them to iBuscomm (you need to delete the spaces)
    -Map the hotkey's
    -Do the same for light switch off
    -That's all there is to it.

    If you got it working with my codes please post it here so other people will know it works. If not please post your E46 codes for other people with an E46 to use them. Thanks!

    So i'm attempting this iBus thing on my E46. I'm not sure how to use the iBus Analyzer. I remember using a different one a few years back. I can't get this to work

    Here's the code i'm using.

    Code:
    [ID:BUT_PREV_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="D007BF5B0300000030"
    Label="< Press"
    Parse=True
    ReplyMsgID=CD_RADSTARTPLAY_100
    KeyboardMap="{e}"
    
    [ID:BUT_NEXT_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="D007BF5B0000000033"
    Label="> Press"
    Parse=True
    ReplyMsgID=CD_RADSTARTPLAY_100
    KeyboardMap="{r}"
    So these are the codes from a 2000 E46 US specs. "D007BF5B0300000030" and "D007BF5B0000000033". I don't know if its right or wrong, but it doesn't work. So i'm assuming its wrong. Help?

    Did you make the changes in the "KeyTBL.ini" file to map the keys? If the codes are correct, it's the only problem I can think of.

    I don't know if these are the right codes since I don't have an E46 to test them. They seem pretty long to me. Mine were a lot shorter.

    Did you use the analyzer for these. If so: did you press analyze and copied the ones in the screen on the right, not the left?

    Ok, just went in the car to check it. I also seem to have a code very similar to yours. I actually think it's the same but I'm not sure.

    But I get two codes when turning the light switch and used the other one. Maybe you can try this. It's possible the codes you use are not always there and that could be the problem. (I actually think the codes I used are the ones for the lights and the ones you used are for the auto heigt adjustment system, just guessing here)

    I for instance try to hook it up on the high beam lever also to change the skin to night when the lights are allready on. This code seems to change depending on what state the car is in. (ignition on/off, engine running, lights on/off) Didn't work very well. Sometimes it does sometimes not.
