Introduction

RsLink is a GTK based application that I wrote to control my 2 200-disc sony changers. Now, these changers can easily be interfaced into a PC failry easily. There are some simple diagrams on this site which demonstrate how. I've decided to go with a commercially availible product because it's got a lot more bells and whistles. It's called an s-linke by nirvis. The product is great, and it comes with great software to use it, however, it is all based on microshit's visual crap basic or something and only runs under microshit's fucked up OS. Anyhow, I digress.

The software I'm working on is still in the works, and I'm making it available under the GNU public license for people to play around with. I've tried to make it somewhat portable to different setups, however, it's still very very rough.

Anyhow, I don't feel like spending much time making this page look nice or anything, perhaps i'll do that later.. I'll just include a few snapshots and the current source. I make changes often, so if you want a newer version, email me at reza@reza.net.

 

NOTE! Brian Demsky has come up with some modifications to RSlink to allow you to use this parallel port device. I've not tested this, and he reports it to be somewhat buggy, but if you're interested, download these two replacement files :
rslink.c
serial.c
