Hello,

I've purchased a car2pc interface to connect my carpc to the "business" radio of my e46 (2000). Unfortunately, it's not fully working. I have tried the newest winamp plugin, and i can see the current song playing on my HU. I can select a playlist (1 to 6). I can't, however, change the current track. If i press the previous/next button, nothing happens. If i first press the "m" button (MAN in display) and then press previous/next, it does rewind/fastforward.
So it seems that the plugin is expecting different messages for previous/next than send by my HU. What to do??

Also, i develop programs in VB and VB.NET. I was wondering how i can get the i-bus messages send by my HU in a program. Is there an OCX or a DLL available wich is event driven, i.e. everytime a message is recieved, an event fires? That would be very, very nice Smile. I would be very happy if the plugin is going to work at first though...

Tia,

Louwsma

We saw this thing in some stereos and we'll do a fix shortly after we confirm the stereo model. Please send email to support@car2pc.com for us to send you a firmware update when we have a fix. It should be available next week.

We already fixed that problem.
Which firmware version do you have ?
Version is shown in WinAmp plugin on preference screen.
