    I does that even with the IP-BUS adapter. Well the AUX come through when the CD plays, but the CD doesn't when the AUX plays.

    So, what you are saying is that the $75 wire from Pioneer still allows sounds to pipe thru from the AUX/RCA when the CD changer is playing. But not vice-versa.

    Probably the CD Changer gets the signal to 'stop' when it the source is switched to radio/tape/AUX.

    I would have thought there would be something more elaborate to discontinue the sound from the AUX port. But if that's all there is to it, then I'll go ahead and splice and dice it.

    Thanks for the reply. Please correct me if I'm off course.

    No, you're spot on. If I switch to aux, I get just my Carputer playing. If I switch to CD player and the carputer is playing I get both.

    IT even mentions it in the manual

    I must admit I was kinda disappointde with Pioneer when I read that.

    Try working it with an old CDC spares.

    I also had a problem getting the AUX on my HU display. I decribed in detail on my site at the main page how I got my PC to play on the HU. (Basically lying to the HU).

    Check it out:

    Let me know if yours works. It worked for me!

    I guess I got my wires crossed.

    Smile My Install

    I have attached what installed worked for me. I used an old cord that I had from an old voice commander that had some extra IP-BUS plugs on it. Basically I did exactly what someone posted earlier in the thread... I simply spliced into the L+,L-, R+,R- wires that ran from my headunit to my cd-changer and added two female RCA plugs.

    There is ground wiring (LG,RG) that runs on the outside of the L+/-, R+/- wires. All I did with that is simply continue it onward to the CD changer. It in no way touches my RCA.

    My results:
    I found that I can play my CD changer when nothing is hooked into the RCA. If I hook into the RCA, it overrides the CD-Changer and only the RCA source comes through at a very normal sound volume.

    If I switch to my AUX, the sound volume drops a bit.

    Basically, I just am going to play my AUX through the CD changer mode. Apparently my CD-changer is not running when it 'sees' that the RCA is active.

    Just an idea, but do at your own risk... I'm no professional. It simply works great for me.

    You said it drops a bit. Does it get very quiet or only slightly quieter?

    Also, you say with nothing hooked into your RCAs it plays CD changer fine. So as soon as your plug your RCA in the sound stops? Or as soon as RCA source starts playing does the sound from the CD changer stop?

    Lastly, does anyone have a copy of both diagrams. I just wanted to study them both one more time. Thanks.

    i think this feature would come in handy in my eyes. you have your cd player on a long drive, and then the voice commands on hte gps kicks in when you have to exit or take a turn
