    that may be the case, but my gut feeling is that it isn't.

    I've just had a look at some ibus logs from hacktheibus yahoo group, and I can see this:

    68 05 80 41 01 01 AC -- radio to instr time request
    80 0C FF 24 01 00 20 36 3A 34 34 50 4D 67 " 6:44PM"

    it seems like there's some messaging going on there to display the time. the target is FF, which is broadcast.

    I'm sure with enough tinkering, it can be done.

    u know what, when I do this bit of software I will make it sweep devices sneding them commands! whilst this may end up with some devices going "ping" it may identify what codes to send to get something displayed on the mid.

    did u try FF again?

    I don't know if this helps - but when the temperature reaches 3 degrees celcius the OBC in the speedo area changes to the temperature display regardless of what info was on the OBC before. I suppose this is what we want to emulate, right?

    there is something wrong with my ibus adaptor i think.
    i can't see anything scrolling on the mid screen nor welcome message
    i can't simulate most buttons thru ibus analyzer (just steerwheel buttons work thru ibus analyzer)
    i can use prev and next steerwheel buttons with RR but nothing more.
    i removed my HU and put my screen in the gap where my hu is used to be located. Before that i set audio source on cd it worked for a while but after few start-up's it turned on radio again. I can't change it thru ibusanalyzer or anything else and i don't have the "mode" button anymore. I really don't understand what i do wrong. It may be a driver problem (i have just vcp installed on my carpc not the another one d2xx or something)
    any idea or shall i just try another adaptor.

    yep. there's another one though, the one that shows arrows flowing from source to destination, as well as the log. that's the one I've lost!

    Is there any way of switching radio mode using the IBus.
    I have my e46 business CD radio (2003) in my glovebox and I have my carpc audio connected to the aux input of the radio. I use my radio very often and all the times I need to open the glovebox to switch to aux or CD.
    Is there any way of doing this from the PC or using a combination of buttons from my steering wheel? I have read the post from Hacktheibus yahoo forum and I did not fibnd anything about that.
    Thanks
