Maybe I'm thinking about this incorrectly, so please set me right if I'm wrong.
I currently use a Russound CAV6.6 with keypads to control my audio system from each room.
I'd like to slowly migrate towards a more sophisticated home automation system, encompassing HVAC, alarm, wholehouse audio, etc.
Instead of immediately ditching the keypads in each room, I would like to have 2 or 3 full tablets running CQC located in heavy use areas (say the kitchen and bedroom) that would allow full house control. I would like to keep the keypads in each room for quick/easy audio control in each room.
Normally, CQC would interface and control the Russound via serial port. However, in my case, I run a PC/JRiver connected to the Russound via the serial port and your CAV66.EXE software to dump data back and forth from my keypads.
In my case, the serial port is tied up, and I have no way for CQC to control my Russound.
If there was some kind of interface to control CAV66.EXE, couldn't CQC send it commands, which CAV66.EXE would then pass on to the Russound?
