Zalman HD 160 LED Display
« on: August 01, 2007, 11:31:15 pm »
I have the Zalman HD 160 case. I was wondering where I could find instructions to get the LED display to work with LinuxMCE or if anyone has ever gotten that or another LED display to work.

I suspect that LinuxMCE supports only Crystal Fontz USB/RS232, IRTrans - Dign VFD and Media Live LCD/Buttons. Linux by itself supports much more. For example, I have SilverStone case with iMON VFD. It displays some system or MythTV info (channel, time etc). Have a look this - http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Zalman_HD160. Did you configure remote to work with LinuxMCE? It's also possible.

Yeah i had seen that wiki for the remote. I dont have it set up yet but i suppose i will eventually. the screen isnt really necessary since itll be in a closet. Just thought it would be one of those "nice added touch" type of things. Getting the card reader to work would be nice too. I will look into that some more. Thanks for your help.
