VFD work in Linux MCE?
« on: July 21, 2008, 05:59:00 pm »
Will the VFD displays such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129029 work in Linux MCE?

We have the infra-structure to do it, however, we need more drivers for VFD displays. We could quickly wrap LCDProc in a DCE device, but this would not effectively harness the unique capabilities of each display.....

Have a look that topic - http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=4135.0. Basically, LinuxMCE supports only Crystal Fontz USB/RS232, IRTrans - Dign VFD and Media Live LCD/Buttons.
