Does anyone here tried BV20 bill validator? I can't find any sample on how to make a simple program for b4r.

The serial interface and protocol are described at page 20 of the document:

https://innovative-technology.com/product-files/manuals/bv20-technical-manual.pdf

Parallel interface is described on page 14, and is probably simpler to implement, but uses more pins (well, between 3 and 10 pins, depending on your requirements) and only accepts 4 note types.

There is a Arduino-BV20 serial interfacing conversation at:

https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=125119.0

which might be useful re: electronics of connecting Arduino to BV20. Don't be put off by the first paragraph... Joe eventually gets it going :)
