Hi guys, is there a possibility to build the remote for Zapco Dsp-z8 too? I just installed mine and want to utilize the optical input. Thanks.

Doin' a little thread necromancy, since this helped me. Only wanted a sub nob & the ability to swap between profiles. 3D printer & Fry's, here I come! Here's my first partial print to check fitment. I'm printing the final box, box top and pot knob now.

It looks like it's got the same functionality as what we're building, but he has an aurduino driving a screen, and probably using some GPIO's to control the outputs through whatever circuits he's devised to hook up to the two control inputs (that measure voltage level) and the high/low input pin (for the preset select).

Bringing this back to life as I am making my own remote.

For the ground, do you just connect it to the metal shell of the DIN connector as you would with an RCA?

honestly, just buy a URC.3. This thread is from when the shitty URC and absurdly shaped URC.2 were out and those failed all the time. Problem is, these homemade remotes have the same issues as the URC.2. A local buddy who got schematics from this thread has gone through maybe 4 or 5 of these, and they cost him time, plus cost of parts. Meanwhile you can buy a URC.3 for like, 35 bucks.

Where do you get a URC3 for $35? Unfortunately I've already bought the parts and started soldering since I thought a URC.3 was like $60-70.

Cheapest I see them are for $70 from eBay from Austria. Can't find it anywhere in the US. I guess maybe if I call some dealers.

Dang, yea I live in the middle of nowhere. Will have to see if I can find someone to ship.

I still want to try and build this remote though since I've spent way more than I intended to this month. Plus, I have all the parts already so they're going to waste otherwise.

Yes ground to shield.
I made my own. It’s easy. No need to buy one. Mine is customized with only a sub knob- didn’t want the other stuff.
