    M-Bus CD changer adapter for car pc integration

    I've made my own M-Bus to PC interface for my 2000 Accord (its HU utilizes the M-Bus protocol with a different connector) with an AVR microcontroller and this info. Right now I'm working on writing the plugin to control foobar2000 with my headunit!

    What about the other way around?
    Anybody figured out a way to get the PC to control the HU?

    As in play different music? Sure, just have whatever media player you're using change the track. As in send CD text and stuff to the radio, some protocols can do that but not M-Bus.

    Something that occurred to me the other day... any plans for a steering wheel control to PC (with no factory or aftermarket HU) interface?

    No... more like what if you have a new Civic Si or MkV VW GTI... the stock Nav system is a 2Din unit and they have OEM steering wheel controls. If you where to replace the factory HU with a CarPC only (no aftermarket or stock HU), then you would lose the ability to use your steering wheel controls (without making some stuff yourself). So I was wondering if a Car2PC adapter might become available for this application.

    You can. Get a MitchJS adapter (www.rush2112.net), a SIR-ALP1 and roadrunner and you're all set. It works amazingly well.
    GA-K8VM800M, Sempron 64 2800+, 512mb DDR400, D-Link USB BT, Linksys .11g NIC, 250gb IDE, BU-353, SIR-ALP1 w/ MJS, DSATX 220w, DWW-700H

    It can be done no prob. Still most cars are unique, so it will take some time to figure out...

    Yes, steering wheel controls are sent to HU and then Car2PC will send them to the PC no prob.
