Well - I managed to get something hacked up in C...
Not pretty - but does the job (bearing in mind - I know nothing about LCDd, or LinuxMCE!)

If anyones interested/can check it/can add some info to the wiki pages - send me a private, or email me (mike at and I'll give you what I've got..

Installation issues / Lirc...

I've just about managed to get this all installed and mostly working - just a few queries (which I'll post individually!)

Firstly (and go easy on me - I know nothing about lirc)...

I dont seem to be able to get the imon volume knob to work properly.

It vauguely controls the volume - but takes *lots* of turns to make any changes..
What config files do I need to play with ?

irw seems to report the movements ok :
00000000010000ff 04 VolDown IMON_KNOB
00000000010000ff 05 VolDown IMON_KNOB
00000000010000ff 06 VolDown IMON_KNOB
00000000000100ff 00 VolUp IMON_KNOB
00000000000100ff 01 VolUp IMON_KNOB
00000000000100ff 02 VolUp IMON_KNOB
00000000000100ff 03 VolUp IMON_KNOB
00000000000100ff 04 VolUp IMON_KNOB

I've indirectly set up a /etc/lircd.conf file  (via the media director->add remote) and that contains the :

          VolUp                0x000100FF
          VolDown              0x010000FF


How does this get translated to 'turn the volume up' - is it via /etc/lircrc ?

I'm assuming that lircd should be running ?

I'm happy to give it a go - is there some *readable* tutorial (with examples - with code/makefile etc) - that I can hack ?

Sending stuff to the LCD is easy (echo "Hello World" > /dev/lcd0 ) - it just knowing what to send - and when to sent it...

Users / VFD with DVD playback ?

Ok - finally managed to get the vfd/lcd working on my antec fusion case - but it only seems to be used by MythTV - so when I'm playing a DVD - I just get a clock...

Is this right ?

Is there any way to get some info displayed during dvd playback (for example) ?
