General Discussion / SR5 + USB PL2303HX ... Detected, but rejecting
« Last post by JustJoe on August 14, 2018, 01:02:49 PM »
Hi Steve,

Have setup a SR5 coin acceptor with the PL2303HX USB, running everything on a Windows 7 PC and powering from its internal PSU - CoinKit has successfully detected the SR5 and mapped coins, and the Gate Test works (tests, makes a clack and then re-detects the SR5)

My problem is, all coins that are sent through the SR5 are rejected ... no credits added... I've checked the inhibits, and all coins are set to accept.

The SR5 unit has a diagnostic LED on the side, that once powered up displays Green, suggesting the mech is in a booted up and working mode...

 I've attached images here also - any help you could offer would be much appreciated!

With thanks,

Joe

Hi Joe

Not sure what he means by single chanel, could be that all coins exit the same place (no routing), but as long as its standard ccTalk (not encrypted) you should be ok.

Thanks Steve  :D

Have just ordered one of the units you linked to, from the description the seller also sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

If I could just check one other thing with you, in the descriptions he mentions the programming for the unit "will be set to CCtalk single channel"

Would this be the correct setting for using with the Coin Kit? or should I provide him with some other instruction?

Huge thanks! Joe

Hi Steve,

Have had some issues locating the SR2 coin validator, but just come across this from an EU supplier - this would be the SR5 you mention?

https://www.coinoperatorshop.com/en/cash-handling/Coins-Validator-Hopper-Counting-8589/Coin-Mechanisms/electronic-Coin-Validator/rm5/RM5F00-CC-talk-electronic-coinvalidator.html

- Sorry if its an obvious question, this one is probably just as stupid: but with the SR5, the only other hardware required would be the serial data lead as in your YouTube video?

Cheers! Joe

Hmm, i think you got it wrong way round maybe ?, Videobox list's albums (or folders), and Home & Pub jukbox both list tracks.
Maybe your folder structure is wrong for Videobox ?...

Hi paul, If you realy need karaoke I would say go for Videobox, it has tons of adjustements to play with and plays video's too, otherwise just get Home Jukebox if you can do without karaoke.
Best way is to download em and see which you like best :-)

Ps: yeah we still use the board but its mainly used for getting help with bugs and tech problems, at the moment we have pretty stable builds so theres not much activity.

Steve

Hi, guys, I have looked at all the packages ie home, video, and pub etc. The home ticks all the boxes except it doesn't have a karaoke option, don't like the layout of Videobox and the pub jukebox has allot of features I don't need and is a bit expensive as I would need 2 licenses. Why do I need 2 licenses you may ask? I'm building a pub shed in my garden and was thinking of building a dedicated Jukebox Rock and Roll themed. But I have just ordered a new touchscreen laptop for use in the house. I have all my music stored centrally on a Nas device. The idea is to do all my tags and graphics I can swap between the 2 devices. So my question is do Jukeblaster offer any other options or what software do people use for karaoke if using home Jukebox?
