    Alright, a little summation if you haven't already figured it out.

    Phidgets is an encapsulated out-of-the-box type solution. A good start for someone that has not dealt with controls. However,...

    I see no reason to have to hack into your wires. Using those vampire connectors should be fine, as long as you know what you are doing...:D

    I plan on using both. I don't always have my computer on, so having the factory switches diabled would be a bad idea.

    For the one I'm trying to finish, I'm thinking an off-board remote would be...

    You might not be able to use these though. With such a short distance, they may not trigger at all. I would have to check the instruction manual, but I think most of them have to have a doorway of...

    With a CD drive mechanicsm though, you are going to be limited by the original travel distance of the drive. They only have something like a 3" of travel. Unless you add your own mechanism.

    Ignoring all the other stuff that is going on, you are going to be fine using this power supply to run your devices. I have the same one, and it will work fine.

    HOWEVER....I wouldn't trust it...

    No, I had some time the other night, and took a look at the firmware, tweaked some timing, but nothing really changed the problem. I will be able...

    That's why I put them on board for my boards. It just looks neater having one board. Of course, then I was thinking I was going to put the whole thing in an enclosure, so I guess it really doesn't...

    Cool. I still have to finalize the board, but I have to decide whether I am going to have the board have a timer feature, or have it software controlled. It would be nice to have the board control...

    The software is a fair distance off.

    The card at this point is cobbled together, and is far from finalized. I am currently working on making it expandable to a huge number of digital I/Os (which...

    I don't know about making a screen inside of roadrunner, but you could run the program embedded, maybe. It shouldn't be a problem. But I will make sure it is easy to use.

    Air ride is variable suspension control.

    You could use the card for control over it, but it is all going to depend on the software. If I am thinking correctly, air ride control is typically done...

    I have been woking on my own USB card since around December. It has had to wait for the end of school to get my full attention though.

    If Streetdeck is based on Mappoint, there is no such adjustment. I haven't looked at these pre-built systems, so I don't know what its all about.

    But they aren't.

    They only advertise 500mA at 5V, which isn't...

    Are you sure that your GPS does not switch ports every time you reboot? I know this was an issue with USB->RS232 dongles. They redetect every time, and therefore get a new port number.
