    Will CF2 communicate with a standard hitachi display connected to the perallel port. I have done this before using a Futaba VFD (that emulates the standard Hitachi chip) and a WinAmp plugin. I don't think I want that in my car, but I might use CF on my HTPC which has that on the case.

    I have a 2x20 and a 2x40 Futaba LCDs that use the standard Hitachi character display interface, but that is a 8+4 line parallel interface. How do you connect that via serial or USB? I have connected one to a parallel port before and had it working with WinAmp. Does CF support a parallel interface?

    What would be really cool would be to display backwards characters so that I could mount it in my dash above my steering wheel and use it as a HUD, but I don't think you can display backwards characters with out sending it custom fonts all the time (and I think they can only display 8 unique custom characters on the display at one time).

    yes... parallel is currently the only supported interface...
