Dear Patrick.

AMX is complete controlller package.
It's terribly complex.
to keep you updated on this a bit here goes.
ivie  (  i had spelled it wrong ) is also in on this.
the project is to control a system that's in the suites in the 
new jacksonville arena.they have extron switcher, ivie mixer
television set controls vcr and dvd controls.
Unfortunately.. extron has a system .. ivie has a system and all this
will result in a very complex code to have all those working.
the delay being really  short ( wednesday it's got to be online ) 
im kind of really nervous since the equipment is not even plugged in 
so i can test the installation before it's being brought online :)) 
talk about pressure 8) 

Signed : Nervous Wreck 

Ric ;)
