    Interfacing SONY Deck CD Changer BUS Cable?

    I have a Sony CD Deck, with a 10 Disc Sony Changer hooked into the Changer Pre-Outs: Bus Cable, Left and Right RCA cables. I was wondering if it was possible to interface the Bus Cable with the computer's parellel port. This way i wouldn't have to build a separate LCD display, I could just use the SONY DECK.

    I found out how.
    You must buy an adapter to allow AUX audio to input into the UNILINK cord.

    Sony Model number = XA107

    Checked out sony.com

    seems that is allows AUX input on the bus. Doesn't seem as if it will allow information to be passed to the lcd... but you could use a sony deck for AUX input instead of a tape adapter or something of that nature!

    I think what the origional topic question was to connect the cd changer output controls (from the deck) to a parallel port so he can control his mp3 unit from his deck. IE change mp3 forward/back/skip/pause/play correct?
    I also had this idea, however it would be difficult to find out the way the deck communicates with a cd changer, there is a whole "standard" you have to use. I'm sure an EE engineer could figure it out.
    there are also different types of bus's.
    I don't know what kind of bus Sony uses, however I know Alpine uses M-BUS and AI-Net.
    Pioneer uses P-bus.

    I myself have been looking to find a way to get input into my DECK, I can't find an M-BUS adapter that will allow rca input. I do know there is an AI-NET adapter. I resorted to purchasing a FM-Modulator, it has the worst sound I've ever heard (I don't know if its because I have a cheap model, or if its broken) heh. oh well

    I feel your pain alien, I have a Monte Carlo with a stock GM AC/Delco radio. I believe it too also has an M-Bus adapter. Let me know if you have any luck, so far I have had none. =(

    Also, I don't believe that with the Sony, or alpine decks for that matter, that you can have an AUX input without ALSO having a CD changer installed.. without the changer it just won't change over to the CD Changer source, which is where your MP3 system would be running into.. I may be wrong.. some correct me if I am.. but I only wanna here it if you've done it yourself.. cause a lot of audio stores don't know what the **** they are talking about..
