You added, that additional actions to the rockbox SW, right ?
Is there a plan to integrate that features to the main path development of
Rockbox ?
Talking in a general way of implementation into Rockbox, how could these
functions be accessed (maybe via extended remote interface) ?

So the Unilink protocol enables you sending that data to the HU ?
My Panasonic CDC simulator project isn't able to do that, because the
protocol itself doesn't contain the possibility of any text sending :-((

Aahh, some kind of "ping-pong" protocol....

There were several discussions about that some weeks ago, and that power on
pulse thing is definetly not working on all JB devices !
Maybe you should think in shortcutting the JB's OFF key with that
transistor, that would be electrically the same behaviour as pressing the
