    Audi A3 8V Virtual Cockpit retrofit

    Hello,
    I just installed it but I have a problem.

    I have MIB1 and I know some people make working VC with it. I connected fiber cables but I have not Radio and Phone infos in the instrument. I activated MOST in 5F too.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Please post a complete Auto-Scan for context.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I’ll post later because I haven’t it at this moment.

    In 5F no errors but I don’t know if I need to change any byte.

    AFAIK you need MIB2 with VC. MIB1 is not able to support the display protocol.

    I know it works properly with MIB2 but lot of people get it working with MIB1 too. At this moment itís all ok but I have no radio info by optical fiber.
    Can it depend by MIB firmware version?

    I've never seen it in conjuction with MIB1. My understanding is that even physically it is possible to have the MOST splitter there, the MIB1 does not have MOST bus at all, so it won't put anything to VC.

    But I'm happy if someone proves me wrong

    My unit has MOST and I just connected optical fiber from 5F to 17 module so I confirm it has it

    How can you confirm it's actually working? You just stated that you don't see audio or phone options in the AID so my guess instead is that it is NOT working.

    EDIT :
    Ok, Audi seems to be a bit different than other brands. Audi has MOST connection even from Standard MIB system onwards BUT if I'm reading this correctly (see link), only sound processor is connected to MOST bus on MIB1 system, which means that it is only used for additional amplifier (Bose, B&O etc.) http://content.datarunners.net/content/ssp/994618ag.pdf

    Later on in the document however the MOST ring is introduced and there the instrument panel is also mentioned.

    Can you provide the full autoscan as requested so we'll see what is the AID coding.

    Because led in the connector was off before activating MOST in 5F module
