    It goes:

    Nexus>USB OTG Cable>Standard USB Cable>Arduino

    That's how you connect the Nexus to the Arduino. I'm actually using a USB OTG Y Cable so that I can control the Arduino from the Nexus while simultaneously receiving power to keep the Nexus charged.

    I attached a pic if that makes it any easier.

    YOU DA MAN!!!!!!!!!!!! I have this setup at home on the desk, and it's working great. I am also working on incorporating a PS/2 mouse into the mix, wired directly to the arduino, and placing the mouse on my center console next to my shifter. I am not going to actually be moving the mouse, it will be fixed, but I'm going to use the scroll wheel for volume, and then left, right, and center clicks for things like the "call button", "mode button" etc. Great work!

    Ah I see! Now i remember you saying something about USB OTG . I have a Mulimedia dock that should work. Thanks.

    You guys don't go anywhere, i may need a few more spoon feedings before i get it to work.

    OK Guys, need some spoon-feeding. To install the IRemote library, do i just copy the folder into the audrino program folder under libraries like this: arduino-1.0.5-r2/libraries/IRemore and that's it? I'm following the installation instructions but it doesn't say to double click or right click/install anything????? Is there a way to verify if the library installed correctly and is working?

    Sounds like you did it right to me. The way to test is to try to compile the Sony sketch I made. If it compiles successfully, that's it. The last step is to upload the sketch to the Arduino. Once the sketch is uploaded and you have all your cables set up (Nexus>USB OTG Cable>Standard USB Cable>Arduino), you're ready to start issuing commands to the Sony by opening up the UsbTerminal app on the N7 and pressing keys like 'n' and 'e'. All of the available commands should be commented in the case statement of the sketch, i.e. 's' for Source, 'n' for Menu, 'e' for Enter, 'd' for Down Arrow, etc.......

    Good deal! I will mock it up this weekend on the bench and see. I have every thing it needs to work. Will report back.

    thanks.

    Of course, as my luck will have it - mine is not working I believe i imported the library and uploaded the sketch correctly because when i "verified" and then "upload" it didn't give me any errors; the result is the yellow LED and green "on" LED on the arduino are always "on".

    So i paired the radio with the tablet and brought-up appremote no problem.

    But for some reason, nothing happens when i press a button on the terminal app keyboard The terminal app reads "USB device connected" but pressing "n" or "v" or "w" has no effect on the radio display. I did notice that when i press a key, the "RX" LED on the arduino blinks - is that correct?

    I have the LED legs in pin 3 and ground and i even tried reversing them but no change. Speaking of LED, i've had a funny feeling about the LED that it may not be right one, the part nembers on the package just didn't seem right. I'm going to get one from Radio Shack just to be sure, but in the mean time, i will listen to any advice to help troubleshoot the problem.

    Thanks in advance (again!)

    A couple of things to check:

    1. In the settings of UsbTerminal make sure the connection speed is set to 9600. I believe that is the speed that is used in the sketch.

    2. The LED has to be an IR (infrared). It should say IR and something like 940nm wavelength on the package.

    Changing the Baud rate did it - it WORKS!
