My home audio system

Project Background

Most Sony consumer electronic devices have a control port of some form or another. Additionally, with some extra hardware (such as a slinke from Nirvis) it is possible to control devices with an infrared control port. Add a small Linux box into the home theatre rack and suddenly a high level of automation becomes possible.

Devices supported

Currently there is support for Sony audio CD changers (CX-*) and Sony DVD players and changers (DVP-CX850P and DVP-530). Other devices may work, some may require reverse engineering of the control codes. The user software currently supports the parallel port interface designed by Mike Muise. If I ever purchase a slink-e, it will be supported too.

Please take a few seconds to tell me what S-Link devices you own in this survey.
