I'm using an Atmel uC for the Panasonic CDC protocol.
During the next hours, there will be a site available with some more info,
that can be accessed via:

As I already told, I never made big mods to my JB (only changed the HDD).
As I remember, the contact of the buttons is done with some rubber contacts,
equal to those in TV remotes.
I could imagine it should not be as difficult to solder a thin (maybe very
thin) wire on the other side of the board (not the contact side).

So using the JB's uC, or your one in your HW ?
Unfortunately Atmel uC's don't have tristate outs....

PS: Sorry for not be able to help more, sounds interesting.
