    IBuscomm

    I am trying to get IBuscomm working, I've unzipped the software, have set SetVisible=True and run ibuscomm.exe Task manager reports the software as running but I don't get any display.

    I have the Resler I/F which works fine with other monitor/analysers. Is there something I have missed or that isn't documented?

    What is supposed to happen?

    So you are saying that if it can't find a device on the com port it won't run the display?

    Strange, but thanks I'll check it out but had set up the com port

    yes exactly. use device manager to find out the com port ur using, or in ibusanalyser, u should see the comport. chances are it will be com 2, 3 or 4 (since ibusanalyser works and it only supports the first 4 ports).

    also, check what processes are running when u launch ibuscomm (ctrl+shift+escape). if u ran ibcom with the wrong port, it will hang in memory so make sure u close down any running instances of it.

    Had to give it a go despite it being pitch black outside. No luck, I've had Ibus monitor working fine before and the I/F is on com1, I've got the Ibuscomm.ini set to com1 and my GPS is on a USB port maquerading as com4.

    I'll get some time in daylight and do a more controlled check through.

    Thanks for your help and I'll get back

    Check your contention management settings. Depending on the version of IbusComM you're using, the software setting (ContentionManagement=0) may be the only valid setting.

    Depending on the options your vehicle has, the steering wheel controls may be the only thing residing on the i-bus with the rest of your entertainment features operating on the k-bus. Use something like the ibus analyzer to see if you are seeing data packets from your radio etc.

    and make sure you press "select all" devices, and that "live update" is enabled
