    It's good to see that this plugin is still being updated - it's one of the best. Out of curiosity, has anyone had any success using an integrated keypad on a Matrix Orbital LCD? This plugin has listed this as a planned enhancement for ages now, but it never came to be. I have a Matrix Ortibal 2X20 LCD with 7 keys built in, and if I could use these keys then I could eliminate the keypad from my setup.

      hey mtmsol....i think I know which LCD you have and there IS an app that let's you use those keys for winamp. It's at http://www.borderfield.com/lcd.php
      and check out this video to see how it works: http://www.borderfield.com/files/fastmotion.avi

      im surprised you never used that not many ppl have the LCD with the keys built in. Feel free to send me a donation through paypal

          I have installed and tested the latest version. The major change is that all keys are configurable and the spec analyzer looks nicer with the falloff feature. I have some pics of the plugin working in my webpage in the software page if you are intersted.

                  Actually I had emailed Markhus a few times asking for albumlist support and I think he actually listened =)

                  Next wishes for this plugin would be:
                  1- display mobo temperature using data from MBM
                  2- display heading, speed, altitude using GPS data
                  3- song lyrics hehe

                  is that a lot to ask? =)

                    The ultimate would be a GPS program that supported LCD displays so that you could get directions on the LCD. I have a small TFT display, but I only really use it for directions and they're very hard to read on my 4" NTSC screen. If I could get the directions on my character LCD, I could then use the TFT for visualizations only, or even eliminate it from my setup.
                    I might dust off my VB textbook and see if I can't program MapPoint to output directions to the character LCD. Has anyone ever attempted this?

                      I read somewhere on Markus' page that this is some kind of open source.

                      Maybe we should join forces and ask Markus if we could take deal in the development of this plugin. I really like the way how this plugin is expanding and it keeps getting better !! ( I think it's the ultimate for a 4x40 ! )
                      Would be nice if the plugin as so much more options.
                      Some ability to change/create playlists on a display would be nice.
                      Right now I upload all the songs by network, and then upload the playlists to the specified directory. Would be nice if one could change them instantly in the car.

                      Any more wishes ?
