We had seen one of these at CEDIA working with a Netlinx processor via RS-232 on a 12" Modero. Bought one and we can't get any info on the pin out. It uses an 8 pin din and any info would be great. Thx in advance.
I just ordered the SCH1P2 from Crutchfield and it comes with an RS232 cable for integration with AMX. Granted, it was $90 - but I needed it quickly and it looks like it should work.
There's a non-duet version floating around somewhere here on the forums, perhaps you can grab that if you don't want to go with the duet version.
I use the duet version but the non-duet version doesn't exist save for what a poster had put up for us.
It's non-AMX verified and written by someone here on the board. I haven't tested it out, but will once we get the piece.
Well, it's definately a piece we'd use again, that's for sure. For the price, it's pretty decent. I wound up using the Duet module only, and didn't try the NetLinx version at all. I found that using it would have been too much work since it wasn't in a modular format, and I needed to wrap up the job that day.
I'm thinking about making some modifications to the NetLinx code to make it a module. Though I never tested it out to begin with, so that may create some problems. The nice thing about the piece was that I was able grab feedback from it without having to activate it. I just could hear the audio from it was all, but the feedback updated as if it was activated.
I'd reccomend this piece if anyone's looking for a Sirius piece to use in their system. And like I said - for the price, it's great. We got the SC-H1P2 from Crutchfield for $96 (that included shipping). We now have both inexpensive Sirius and XM pieces to offer our clients and that makes us happy.
I've got one sitting on my desk, and it came with the Din->9 pin Dsub cable. I'm not in the office today; with any luck I'll remember this post tomorrow and I can trace the pins for you.
Should the LED on the SC-H1 light up when just power is applied or does the NI turn the unit on?
I read on some other forums that you need to use RS232 line drivers with this unit and not just a straight RS232 solution. Are you using the SCH1P2 or a custom cable solution?

I would love to tackle this protocol, just a little intimidated from what I read (you know....the 140 page Sirius manual). Once I get something working, I will certainly take on the challenge (love challenges!).

Hope this lengthy post can make some sense as to what might be happening.
Joe! How ya been man? Do you remember coding the Ebner project for us? I'm Jack from SoundCom. AMX Max (old-as* version) ring any bells? Your code along with several other programmers really helped me to learn Netlinx. Anyway, I can't believe you had the EXACT same problem as me with the REPLACE_STRING. I wrote that "little" include file in Netlinx that some of these guys were talking about. I've included my current code for reference. I'd be interested in taking a look at yours some time. I love my SC-H1. It's been very solid. My power supply did take a poop. Replaced it and still working fine. My code is not very clean and I don't like my workaround at the end for when the sequence byte flips. But it works. What did you do for that by the way? Anyway, you've been very helpful on this board. Thanks!
Does it provide more information about the currently playing song/artist? (ie, does it give me more than 8 characters of data?)
Also, does it allow me to see what is playing on other channels without tuning to them?
