I haven't found any info on this plugin on the site. has anyone implemented girder with the B&K CT600 (or 300/602/610) multi zone system?

I am on the fence between the russound CAV6.6 and the B&K products. The B&K product has more features, and they also have a companion device to implement HD switching. The biggest plus for the the CAV for me is that there is already a girder plug in developed for it.

Does anyone else own the B&K product and have you tried to implement a serial command set for it?

thanks for any help...

Interesting protocol - I particularly like the idea of tagging a command so that you can tie the reply from the device to the original command.

It's certainly simpler than the CAV's protocol, and would have the advantage that it will work with other B&K components since they use a common protocol.

We'll help get you started on the serial plugin if you decide to get the B&K.

also, if you go with the cav, it would be easy to have a third party hD switcher change as the cav zones change source and tie this together with G4.
