arrrrrrgh

s-link is not for car audio cd changer. It is for home
products only.

car radios use a protocol called unilink which needs 2
or 3 pins:
- a clock
- a bidir data
- a reset signal (optional?)

http://www.mictronics.de/unilink_resource.php
might still be possible to connect through the line in
connector (for the player)

bit period is 20us. dont know if the software can
manage it. The serial clock 1 in the archos is used
for I2C isn't it?

one other solution is to have a microcontroller
interfacing: only low level byte conversion from
synchronous to remote pin. There should be no
additional component around the pic (except power
supply and maybe a quartz) There is a gpl design on
the net doing the interface:
http://gnunilink.sourceforge.net/

Too bad, I found a sony head changer at 105 euros.

If someone is interrested in other changer protocols:

blaupunkt uses a simple async full duplex serial
commuication. still needs another pin.
