Subject: Two-way serial comms with no internal mods...
From: Joseph Jones (
Date: 2004-02-24

I talked about this earlier a bit...

Since two-way communication is possible if we use both the line-in's pin
and the in-line remote pin (man, that looks dumb written like that :) ),
would the system be able to talk to PC-style hardware through a serial
port? If so, would any electronics have to go in-between, or could the
JBR hardware be co-erced into doing something that a PC could understand
as serial (even if there was no existing protocol on the Rockbox itself,
a custom protocol would surely be needed for such a limited device...
can't expect it to handle a TCP/IP stack).
