    Figured it out last night...

    I found a windows volume class writted in VB so i added it to the simple encoder example from the phidgets website and called some of its functions. It seems to work fine.... only problem is that every time you start the program it sets the volume to ~20 percent, shouldnt be a problem though as it will always be running. Hibernating doesnt break it.

    Here it is if anyone wants it.

    Anyone willing to show me how to getVolume from winmm.dll in VB? Ive never done any programming like this before.

    (First post ever!)

    Does anyone have any pics of this actually installed yet? This looks PERFECT for what I want, but I am concerned with mounting.

    Also, has anyone considered having a 2nd one to control treble and bass?

    So I cant get this to run in my carputer, just in my laptop. Any ideas on what it needs? I have almost everything windows update wise, do i need to install VB sepertate? I got the .net framework, and the phidget 2.1 libraries so i couldnt think of anything else. any help would be appreciated, just about to give up and splurge for a powermate.

    could someone tell me the pinout of the 4-pin USB connector on the phidget 1052 itself? I have a 1052, no cable, and i tried to make my own usb connector - i just don't know which pins are data and which are 5v/gnd. I tried copying the picture above - with pin1 red (5v), green, white, black, but that didn't do it.

    Actually, i cant seem to get this to work on my CarPC either. I had it working fine on my desktop. I got to frustrated with this project and haven't really worked on it since i encountered this problem.

    Have you gotten it to work or did you buy the powermate?

    Stopped working for me but I had it working.... Basicly I took he example in VB and added a volume control to it. Really Really easy to do. If I get time later at work tomorrow Ill fix it.
