    yes, you can have more than one of my relay boxes going.. and fully controllable... how about 10, 100 too.. well what ever the max usb devices is

    again, you are thinking in CF terms, RR works much deeper... you could have NO buttons on the skin(for the relays), and still control every relay!

    its just a command, can be used on any button, or even..

    ie when a certin screen is shown, have a relay go on...
    when say... u press pause. have a relay toggle...
    endless possiblilities
    -Thanks

    I appreciate all the help, I'm definitely convinced on going with 2 of your usb relay for now. But since I'm still waiting on Elite II to be completed before switching to RR, and because I've already paid for CF, is there somewhere that I can find a plugin designed for CF 3.5 that allows the 2 relay boards to work with the option to write down the name on each relay button (IE: Amp1, Amp2, Interior light, Heated seats, Rear TV) ...

    my plugin for CF works for up to 4 of my USB-IO-1
    the plugin has it limits, and thats only because of CFs limitations
    but you can control 8 relays...

    i can not promote mitch's products enough. i've never done any programming or skinning and; with some help from a very helpful vendor.... i'm up and running... with a few stumbles as i go. i have 4 of mitch's boxes (considering getting another) controlling various aspects of my boat. i modded elite lite's skin for my application and it's going pretty smoothly.

    here is my progress so far:

    and among 6 pumps, navigation lights, interior lights, engine push button start, and cruise control interaction it also is controlling this

    Hey Mitch,
    Thanks for all the help with the relay suggestion. Like you said, my previous 8 relay did have the problem of draining my battery whenever I would put the system to hibernate, something kept feeding power to the relay switch.
    I just installed your relay switch box (2 of them) and am currently using it on CF3.5 (Until a skin from RR comes out and I get enough guts to take over it)
    I have my Halo lights, grill LED and interior LED connected to Relay 1 and on relay 2 I have my speaker amp, sub amp and rear TV. The software installed well and everything seems fine except for one thing. Whenever I turn off the car and my CarPC goes to Hibernate, the relay software on CF automatically turns off all relay. In other word, everytime I turn on the car and the PC comes back on, I have to open the plugin in CF and have to turn on the relay. Is there a way to set it up so that it remembers the last settings so that I don't have to re-do the same thing.
    One more thing. Is there a way to change the name of the pluggin to something like Relay instead? The current name of the pluggin on my CF doesn't really fit well with the minimalist look of the rest of the displays.

    rr skin for what? generally you make your own skins in RR

    name? are you talkin about CF?, the answer is no... you cant...
    one of the many limitations of CF
    you can customize the actuall skin of the plugin...
    there is a skin.xml file that is editable...

    now of course the relays turn off when you turn off the car...
    when it comes back... you want last settings... i would have to look at that...
    but it shouldnt be an issue
    -Thanks

    Just when I thought I was almost finished... this looks very promising for a lot of accessories! This does work with all 8 relays in CF and just four as posted above?
