    good input/display option?

    I'm copying and pasting this from the input forum where I got no response...

    I saw this in the FAQ sticky [in the input forum].



    http://www.earthlcd.com/serial_lcd_terminal.htm

    I would like to use this to run my Celeron 633mhz PC. I plan to use the system only for MP3's and I would like to display MP3 info on this screen and control it with the buttons mounted on the sides. It supposedly has a IR receiver AND antenna?? I'm not really concerned with the wireless capability; wired would work great for me.
    Am I on the right track here? If this LCD/keyboard combo can display/control my system, I want to order it and begin figuring out how to make it work.
    Any good sites about the general steps involved in using serial?? display/control devices? I know very little about this stuff but I want to learn.

    Thanks

    At the very least, I hope I can get the LCD display to work. I'm considering this LCD and keyboard combo because I could probably make good use of it when I do a complete M10000 and LCD touchscreen system in the future.

    I presume this will work over a serial interface. If it does, then that should be pretty simple, there are lots of plugins for Winamp which allow you to use a serial LCD and serial controlled buttons

    I would try and see if you can get some kind of datasheet for it, to see how the keyboard/buttons and LCD work

    Thank you, confused
    Ive found some more info, mostly about the integrated LCD, but for the price, I'd be happy with just a working LCD. I am finding some sites explaining serial LCD, but I havent seen anything about serial input.
    I plan to order the combo soon. Thanks again!
