    this is awesome, i saw it a couple months ago at this point when you posted it on the zune forums.
    Is there any way to get a car computers touch screen to control the zune? that would be perfect, the zunes interface is really awesome.

    As of today IR emulation is only way to control Zune remotely. I'm afraid that Zune's TV interface is not suited for touch control at all, but who knows...
    Anyway, IR-remote emulation is all I can do as long as Zune's interface is proprietary and highly secured.

    Absolutely fantastic, this so far seems like the best way to use what is already a great interface for the car, subscribed for updates.

    Hopefully similar will be possible with the upcoming windows 7 mobile!

    Good news: I finally posted everything today (including PCB schematics, pin descriptions and firmware) on dedicated page http://sites.google.com/site/projectmuno/
    Questions and comments are welcome

    P. S. Please, don't ask me what Muno means. It's just pretty short and good enough name for the project.

    Wow, never thought that this thread is still alive. My system grow up pretty significantly since last update and I not using Dr.Dac2 DX anymore. Nevertheless, it's pretty easy to control this DAC externally. I just replaced Analogue/Digital input selection switch with relay and took external wire from on/off switch (it used to turn on DAC when pulled in to the ground). Dr.Dac's volume knob has been rotated by digital servo from RC models. All that stuff has been controlled by same Muno controller I used to monitor the IBUS.

    Now I using highly tweaked Alpine PXA-H701 processor with DACs replaced by custom high-quality PCM1794 based DACs. Thanks to the tweak it's way better than Dr.Dac2 in term of SQ. To control this processor from factory monitor I had to develop another controller which allows to communicate with any device on AiNet bus.

    Ahahaha it has been some while right? ahaha...Thanks for your answer, i have read all that thread before asking...

    So you have a Pxa-h701...i am planning to build a car pc, with a toslink out...but i dont know whether to connect the toslink out from the sound card to a pxa-h701...or buy some good sound car and connect it directly to the amp.

    Thanks again for making public the ai10 project...it is a really nice piece of work!

    I would suggest to go with H701 because of two reasons:
    1. Internal sound cards are tend to pick up the noise from other PC components and not good enough PC power supplies. Ground loops are also bigger issue here.
    2. External car processor is independent from PC and could work with other digital sources like Zune HD. Most sound cards are less flexible in terms of connectivity.
