    Smile Need some JVC J-link info... please help!

    Hey guys,

    I have a JVC KD-LX1 HU, and have a J-link to RCA converter cable that doesn't work cause I need to trick the HU into believeing there's a CD changer hooked up to it. I'm guessing I need the pinouts of the J-link adapter and then feed it some voltage that says "hi... I"m a cd changer"... even though it's gonna be my ipod.

    Does anyone know where I could get that info.... or another way around my problem..

    thanks guys

    In the manual of my JVC unit, it says somewhere that you have to switch a setting(in the onscreen Menu of the unit) from CD-changer to Aux in, then it ignores the check for CD changer and just streams in the audio. I dont have it here right now, but I'll check the model # later.

    Hold the Select button down to get into setup mode (Like where you set the time). Scroll it to an option called Ext Input. Make that option 'Line Input' instead of 'Changer'

    I've had two JVC HUs that it worked on. LX-1000 and KS-571 (might not be the right number)

    I just had a look for that option on my deck... it's not there

    I'm guessing I'll have to set a pin high on the j-link adapter to trick it into believe it's a cd changer. Does anyone know the pinouts of the j-link adapter?

    thanks

    I've contact JVC and some other independants in hopes of finding the pinouts of the j-link adapter. I'll post as soon as I know anything

    I'm also curious... on the j-link adapater... it seems the wire is soldered into a clip of some sort that then slides into a plastic housing.... does anyone know what those are called... and where I could get some. Radio Shack had no idea .... no surprise.

    thanks again

    still no response from anyone...
    does anyone know of an online resource where I can get the service manual for my JVC KD-LX1 head unit?

    thanks
