Does anyone know the hardware connections and software settings required to get the two talking to each other?  It may be as simple as a setting in the 540 because the previous owner of the airplane also had a 540 installed (which he kept and replaced with a 530 non-WAAS when he sold the plane).

To talk to the 830, the 540 needs on an RS232 channel, Shadin-fadc (IN) and Aviation (OUT).

My JPI930 and IFD540 setup wants Shadin-fuel on an RS-232 input instead of Shadin-fadc. Shadin-fadc gave me no fuel data on the IFD. Shadin-fuel seems to work perfect and populate all the fields. I also had to make a couple settings changes on the JPI, but I don't have those settings handy.

That is fadc. ;)
 
Shadin-fadc/Aviation certainly works for me, I get fuel data on the IFD540, and GPS distance on the JPI. Even have the JPI OAT propagating.

If that doesn't work for you, it may have to do with what you have set on the JPI.

Thanks for both sets of comments.  I'll see what works for mine.

What were the settings on the JPI930 that you changed.
Trying to get mine to play together.
Thanks in advance.

I used the Shadin-fadc/Aviation settings suggested by orest and am now getting fuel information on the 540.  But I'm not getting fuel to waypoint, etc. on the 930 (those fields are showing but are greyed out) so apparently the two still aren't fully talking to each other.  This is with a flightplan activated on the 540.

On the JPI 830 (probably identical on the 9xx) you need to select the GPS/waypoint or GPS/destination (paraphrased) data IN settings. Believe those are options #6 and #7 in that setting.
