    If that would result in a plug-in that also will be updated for future releases of CF I would be willing to help. I could lend you mine or preferably I could buy you one if someone is selling.

    I dont really need the module. Some info is good enough as the commands are more or less the same with the V5. All I need to know is how the display update is done. From the info on this thread it look like the module spits out the LCD/status update on its own, no need to send a "get_display" command to the module.

    Im expecting something like this comming out of the module :

    FF 01 10 02 42 42 43 20 52 61 64 69 6F 20 33 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20

    FF xx xx xx <16 bytes LCD Line 1> <16 bytes LCD Line 2>

    Does the module spits out any other info such as signal strength, stereo/mono, etc etc?

    How can I get this raw info out of my module for you ?

    Hi Mitch

    I'm not using Venice 7 Master, I'm using a Venice 5 slave. Support seems vary very much depending on the skin.

    Slight change of subject.....

    I don't know what's happened but all of a sudden I have ATT mute working in Centrafuse. I can switch between MP3 and DAB and navigation voice cuts out the audio as it should.

    Has there been a secret OTA upgrade that I'm unaware of?

    I did upgrade to CF3.6 a while ago but the bug was still there. Maybe Centrafuse have fixed this?

    Anyway, a really happy bunny now

    i dont know of many people who have a venice5, but the commands/lables/indicators are full coded, for ANYONE to make a skin

    the CF stuff, im not DIRECTLY involved with...

    im in USA and dont have dab(i got hd radio) so i dont get too involved, even though i did the core communications code...
    and it seemed this dab thing really died out, prob related to CB...
    -Thanks

    Hey guys I have been following this thread for a while, After owning a CarPC for a while with centrafuse and a Venice 7 master module from CB, I have become sick of the bugs and lack of support so I decided to have a go at writing some code myself.

    I have been using libftdi in linux, and I have got the basic commands working, like power, seek up/down, presets etc. on page 125

    If anyone needs me to test anything I am more than happy to help. Also does anyone have the Venice 7 slave firmware?

    This is the output I get when I do a direct read of the master firmware module in DAB mode:

    Hex:
    0A 0A 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E 20 20 20 20 20 20 50 6C 61 79 69 6E 67 20 20 20 20 20 0A 20 20 20 20 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E 20 20 20 20 20 20 6F 6E 6C 69 6E 65 20 6E 0A 6F 77 3A 20 44 6A 20 4B 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E 20 20 20 20 20 20 6F 6E 6C 69 0A 6E 65 20 6E 6F 77 3A 20 44 6A 20 4B 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E 20 20 20 20 20 20 0A 6E 6C 69 6E 65 20 6E 6F 77 3A 20 44 6A 20 4B 72 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E 20 20 0A 20 20 20 20 6E 6C 69 6E 65 20 6E 6F 77 3A 20 44 6A 20 4B 72 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 4E 61 74 69 0A 6F 6E 20 20 20 20 20 20 6C 69 6E 65 20 6E 6F 77 3A 20 44 6A 20 4B 72 6F 00 01 10 02 4E 6F 76 61 0A 4E 61 74 69 6F 6E

    dont over think the venice7

    its just a 2 line LCD
    and a bunch of simulated button presses
    thats it, no more, no less...


    i have a .net C# venice7m .dll, which does all the stuff one needs
    even handles the proper character set translations

    at this point, i could make a very basic cf radio module... cf has limited support of radios in the iRadio interface
    so it would be better to write a full plugin... and some who knows C# could do it

    attached is my stand alone demo
