Sorry mate, What I meant was that running the Pibus but without having to have the xbmc and/or sd card av support, still use the RiPi but without xbmc.

Dont get me wrong mate, the Pibus looks superb, I just prefer OEM look and feel.

BT phone support sounds interesting, is the protocol described somewhere?

1. Handsfree Profile (Note this is the same as the Headset Profile)
2. Object Push Profile (SMS Support). (OPP)
3. Generic Object Exchange (Phonebook synchronization). (Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP, PBA)), early ULF have no phonebook loading, middle have phonebook, later have also caller id.

For the BT dongle it should have all of them (I'm thinking of the ASUS USB-BT211), it has everything needed.

Assuming I can mate the dongle with what the i-bus is expecting then should be doable.

Just tap into the 5V on the board, it's got plenty of spare juice.
