This year, the OI has a jumper that determines whether the dashboard port receives data that the OI sends the RC or data that the RC sends the OI. There’s a lot of RC>OI data, so in that mode the data is sent interlaced by three frames.
I’m going to modify my VB .NET dashboard control (DLL, source) to work with the new packet. Here’s my problem: when it’s in RC>OI mode, the three frames are differentiated by the settings of two control bits so that a dashboard reader can interpret it properly, but I can’t figure out how to differentiate between RC>OI mode and OI>RC mode.
This is great, as we ran into problems with this last year, not being able to see certain inputs.
Have you checked the CTRL_A Bit 4 and CTRL_C Bit 7? They seem to be the differentiating factor. The only possible combination left for the firt mode, for which they are not listed is CTRL_A Bit 4 = 0, CTRL_C Bit 7 = 1
