    Today I stuffed some dolls full of dead rats I put in the blender. I'm wondering if maybe, there really is something wrong with me.

    Not to sound repetitive...but thanks for all of your work!
    I've used the swi-x on hundreds of cars. It's IR signal does not work properly with the media center receiver I have in my Lincoln LS. This should work.

    The only problem I see is if the reference ground for the controls is not supplied at the HU. Hunting it down to convert it to 5v+ could be fun.

    Thanks again for your information!

    I would like to do this for my jeep. But I am having some problems. I do not understand these wireing diagrams, and I cannot figure out if the IP-Bus wire is the one to use. No one seems to know if these controls varry by voltage, I am assuming they do. It is a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    I a 120K resistor across pins 6 & 8 and another 120K across pins 1 & 3. Connect the X4S in parallel with one of theses sets of pins. First calibrate the joystick in windows then set your settings in SWC. I'll post some pics later.

    I am working with Ben of Hybrid to find a way to use a regular PS2 mouse (since we dont use a mouse in the car lol, we have touchscreen) for these certain functions. 1st off, the wheel will be setup so we can pull the wheel out of the mouse, and put anywheres on our dash as a Rotary Volume Knob. Also the remaining 2nd and 3rd mouse button we are going to work on a function for those so we can put the buttons in our dash or steering wheel.

    Any way to get this to work with controls that change the voltage? I am using a SWI-X with a Irman but would like to switch to this.

    The change in voltage you are seeing is the result of a change of resistance.

    Get the service manual for your vehicle (don't take my word for it) and you should find that your buttons will basically have a reference ground (12-), ground (12-), ill. (5v+ to 12+), and multiplex (this wire will have the varying voltage). The buttons apply varying resistors (resistor value assigned to button function) to the reference ground and feed that to the radio via the multiplexed wire.

    That in a nutshell is how your factory system generically will work.

    Follow the instructions posted above and this should work
