First of all, let me thank the author of this great mod - I didn't test it fully yet, but it's so promising.
And a question to All. Did anybody saw a kind of Hardware volume knob, either bluetooth or USB to control the volume on the Autodroid (well, any *droid)? Or, better, a remote pad to control main features, like volume, FF, Prev, Pause, Mute, etc...
Would be grateful for any useful comment. Cheers!
How DYI are you. The most comprehensive way to control the N7 is with Arduino (or equivalent e.g. Odroid-CI). If you have steering wheel controls, then the JoyCon is the best interface. If however you want a super simple controller that works as shipped try:
Satechi Bluetooth Button Series (Media Button)
Fintie Bluetooth Wireless Multimedia Remote
Satechi BT MediaRemote
I'm not very strong in real-life DIY. I know Arduino just from forums and it is still foggy.
But I'm thinking of an intelligent power source Arduino or Attiny based. This is in the future.
For now seeking a well-looking gadget. Satechi is a very nice gadget, although it's a bad idea to put anything on the wheel. I did think of it, but it is a lil bit expensive. The Fintie remote I've already bought these days, so it's a good choice, isn't it?
Well, actually I was seeking for a volume knob like Griffin NA16029 PowerMate USB Multimedia Controller Control Knob (no URLs for me yet). But, there is no certainty that it will work with android. Again, I was looking for smth cheaper.
The manufacturer AND users say that the: Fusion Control USB Powered and Controlled Rotary Volume Knob works well with android (as a physical volume control). The Fusion Control is not cheap (but less than the Griffin), and it should work.
Is there a reason you don't use a volume control on the amplifier itself?
Also, hacking into the physical controls on the N7 is not too hard. You could wire into the volume up/down buttons and connect a rotary encoder switch for real cheap.
