Thank for your answer.

Post Re: Multiplexer HT and NXTcam
You can connect it but it won't work :) The HT Sensor MUX does not allow you to send commands to the sensor from the NXT. It basically turns the connected sensor into a "read-only" sensor. This works fine for most sensors as they don't require commands to be sent to them to do their thing. The NXTCam, however, needs to be sent several commands before it can start doing its thing. Another potential issue is the fact that the NXTCam consumes a fair amount of current (40mA or so).

Regards,
Xander
