    Question What LCD?

    Hey guys, i am making my MP3 player and i am running DOS/MPXPlay and was wondering what a good cheap character LCD is, and who sells it. I am also wondering how you invert the screen. Thanks a lot, i am sure you get this a lot, sorry.

    Question

    Will one of those work with MPXPlay? Those look really sweet! Well worth the $50 i think.

    Datainternational is nice enough to give LCDs to students who "Claim" they are going to buy more.
    They were sending me one, but my e-mail box crashed, and I need to contact them again.

    Also try EIO in the LCD section. Arby is buying from them, but these are not inversed and cost cheaper: $20 (but they donīt look so nice).
    They take a while delivering things, but they do deliver.

    Anyone know anything about Crystal Fontz in their standard LCDs. They have some cool ones, no 40s though. Let me know what ya think.

    The CrystalFontz LCDs are serial, so they are very easy to install (just run a standard serial cable). However, they require that the software you urn supports serial LCDs. As far as I know, DOS MPXPlay does NOT support serial LCDs, so you'd be better off with a parallel LCD module. Also, the serial displays are much more expensive. For less than the cost of a 20X4 from CF, you could purchase a 40X4 like the ones Arby is selling. If you're really hung up on the simplicity of a serial LCD and you want a 40X4, try Matrix Orbital. Again, they are expensive but they do make nice displays (that's what I'm using now). The best price I've foud so far is Linux Central.
