Thats a great hack! Wow!
I love the Headplay but always wanted an upgraded receiver with diversity.
Are there any new photos or is the wiring really so simple?

I plan to build this next week.

I don't understand what the B0,B1,B2 in/outputs are on the realacc board. I assumed they were inputs that double as the up/down/select buttons. I also read B0/1/2 are outputs, and encode the current channel in binary (0-7) the receiver is tuned to.
So, my question is: What inputs are the 3 buttons attached to? Did you solder directly to the rocker switch inputs??


yes, I found the traces connected to the three way switch and soldered on directly. I'm not sure about the B0, B1,B2 pins, they dont seem to do anything on my module.

They indicate in binary as to what channel you are on (0-7). Those pins are useless for the purpose of this project.

Nice upgrade. Did you ever take some pictures and write up detailed instruction set? Or make a youtube video of the process? Thanks.

I didn't, unfortunately. If you (or anyone) would like to build one and have any questions about how to wire it up, feel free to message me. I'm still planning to get around to making a more thorough tutorial when I build my friend's receiver module, but I've been crazy busy with work lately and most of my projects have been on the back burner.

Earlynerd, I know this project is a bit dated, but I am collecting the parts to do it. did you ever get around to the tutorial? No worries if not, I will try to figure it out, I hope I can still contact you with any direct questions.
