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.
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
parallel port interface
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.
