    Functionality Question.....Will This Work

    My CarPC is currently conneced to my stock head unt via the stock aux input. However, since I listen to my stock head unit most of the time, I am unable to hear any navigation commands from IG (embedded in RR). What I want to be able to do is allow IG to send a mute signal to my head unit when it is giving navigation guidance.

    Getting my head unit to mute is pretty easy, it is just a matter of sending a ground signal to the stock head unit. The part that I don't know is possible is getting the mute signal from RR to my head unit. The current skin I am using (Blue Devil) can sense when IG is giving commands and will mute any music, video or DVD until the command is complete. So my question is can this board, with your software, sense the navigation voice "trigger" in RR and then in turn send a signal (via a relay of some sort) to mute my stock head unit?

    When IG is giving commands is it sending commands to RR? ANd can you define the commands to use? If so; it is very easy to switch on/off one of the digital outputs with a RR command. But when you cannot configure the command that is being send to RR you should be able to use the ExecTBL.ini to redefine the command and include the digital out on/off switch command.

    This I am not 100% sure of. I am not a prgrammer by trade but I can understand basic processes. I do know that the skin I am using (Blue Devil) has functionality that will mute any audio (MP3, etc) when IG is giving a command/guidance and will un-mute when the command/guidance is complete. That tells me that IG is interfacing w/RR in some way. Exactly how, I don't know. I will talk to the author of the skin to see how he does this. His screen name is JohnWPB (I think he is subscribed to this thread).

    Does this plugin support the "The number of inputs/outputs can be further expanded by connecting more (up to a maximum of four) cards to the PC's USB connectors." part listed by velleman?

    I'm thinking of having atleast two of these cards in use for all the functions i need... well mostly the relays that i'm short on.

    It does not at the moment. You can use one card at one of the four available addresses. I might implement a card address destination switch command that you can execute before the actually sending output to the desired card.

    please help, im using latest version of rr and also using the latest version of the plugin (also tested the beta). i have added the relays.skin and other files for it into my skin, added the dll & ini to the rr folder and registed the DLL, i have added the command "LOAD;relays.skin", into my menu skin.

    when i click the button i see the screen but no values in anything and it doesnt read / controll the board but i get no errors, any ideas?

    Does the relays.skin have a X,RRK8055 entry?
    Does the demo program of the K8055 board work.
    Where is the K8055d.dll located. Try moving it to the windows\system32 directory or the road runnner directory
