  • Connecting an LCD to the Serial Port

    I have made serial port adapter for standard HD44780 based display. It works fine with Winamp serial control plug-in (displays title, current position, etc). It also has 12 buttons to control Winamp (Play,Stop,Jump5sec,Skip...) and software controlled backlight. All basis on Microchip's PIC16F84 10Mhz controller. I started developing of this device after I saw MP3Ondemand ( player. My version of controller is not compatible with MP3Ondemand, but it can be done.

    Winamp works fine, but Windows starts slowly and Winamp serialcontrol plugin has limited features, so I am looking for player (or someone who can make it) that works in DOS7 (DOS7 because I need FAT32 and long filename support).

    So, if you are interested, take a look:
    I would like to hear what do you like my serial interface. If you have some ideas or questions you can mail too to [email protected]

    PS. I make web page in few hours and it is heavily under construction, and will be. Some pictures are missing because a haven't taken them yet.
