I recently added the Ahanix 16x2 VFD to my D.vine 5 case. It's the VFD
that attaches to the parallel port, not the USB version. I compiled
lcdproc and I'm able to display the standard lcdproc output on the VFD,
such as CPU load, uptime, etc.
However, I get a few garbage characters on the outer edges, and what I
really want to do is display song titles in mythmusic, or time elapsed
when watching a recorded show. I understand there is a MythLCD module,
but I haven't tried compiling it yet - I'm using mythtv-suite from
ATrpms, and I don't want to screw it up. I found a couple examples of
Perl scripts designed to interface with lcdproc...has anyone written
scripts to display information from myth? Or is MythLCD the only (or
best) way to go?
