Hi

Is there a Nirvis Slink-e plugin available to control Sony CD carousels?


Thanks

Nope, I remember hearing some people talk about this, but there wasn't enough of a demand for someone to write it.

I bet you could get it to work in xlobby through girder though.

I know you wont see me making a plugin for this, they dont even make them anymore.

The Slink-e product was discontinued on June 30th, 2004.

Use the command line approach. I had used the Slinke with just batch files (command line) in the past. I would tell you how to set this up in Xlobby, but I am having problems executing my batch files in Xlobby, and no one has responded to my batch file questions yet... :(

I have this working with thanks.

I can post the batch files too
I used the DVD changer thread and pass variables to a batch containing the following dvdselplay.bat %1 %2 %3.
*Search for the USB IR DVD changer thread. use spaces in the slotnumber field to represent %1 %2 %3 carousel number.
*Find a program called sleep.exe and download it.

Change the environment variable Path to add c:\slcmd;c:\slcmd\contfiles;

*Configure slcmd_init.bat for ?your? equipment
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd deldev cd
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd deldev amp
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd deldev dvd
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd adddev cd c:\progra~1\nirvis\device~1\sony\cdir.cde 1 1 4080
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd adddev amp c:\progra~1\nirvis\device~1\sony\ta-n9000esdigital.cde 1 1 4080
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd adddev dvd c:\progra~1\nirvis\device~1\sony\dvdcx850dir.cde 1 1 4080

*Configure conf_DVD.bat
C:\Progra~1\Nirvis\SlinkX\slcmd send "amp:multi-dvd amp:afd"
