    I can help you make a simple plugin to control your LCD if you give me some details on how it works.. I'm assuming it's either by serial or parelell port ?

    Parallel port, please + simple ....

    One nice idea it's to displayed the GPS info,type arrows directions etc...
    but for this use it's adapt one graphic lcd type, not alphanumeric type.

    Guino, most LCDs are Parallel based on the HD44780 Controller.

    And either 2 or 4 line, I am also using LCD Smartie at present an using the RR SDK to export info a text file that LCD Smartie reads and changes the LCD every time the textfile alters.

    True, all or these the displays alphanumeric 1x , or 2x ,or 4x line are with controller HD44780.

    More difficult to manage those graphic lcd, for others my hardwares I have always used uP and not LPT.

    yeah thats exactly what we need to replace our expensive touch screens,crappy LCD's,why didn't i think of it earlier,all we need is a small box that plays music and has an LCD on the front to show track info.

    Sound familier??

    Hi all,
    I REALLY want to know if anything has been done with the winamp/media player plugin for a Graphic LCD.

    I know there are a few programs that show winamp info having trouble finding anything with a menu that would let you scroll through artist then album. Except this, which is just for character displays:

    http://www.markuszehnder.ch/projects...n/pictures.php

    I've just got Liquid-Mp3 to work but can't find any schematics for the Controll pannel to use it's menu

    http://liquid-mp3.schijf.org/

    Ideally I'd like to be able to scroll through Artist then album with a mouse roller without changing track until I select the album I want.

    CAN THIS BE DONE?

    I'd be willing to test.

    I've got a 240x128 Data Vision DG-24128-06 (T6963C):

    Cheers.
