Montellese Wrote:If someone volunteers to count the number of pixels every character takes up I can do that. Is the VFD english only or is it able to handle special characters from other languages (like äöü in german or some chinese characters)? If it's english only it could be "pretty straight forward" to put together a list containing the width in pixel for every printable ASCII character and then do the counting.VFD is english only. When I put the letters you provided, it does not show the message containg them. In fact, it gets stuck at previous display. I tried Serbian Latin characters šđžčć as well as Serbian Cyrilic and it is the same. When I think of it, I think there was another minor glitch when my XBMC was in Serbian but cannot remember it. I'll test and let you know if I find it.
As far as counting pixels, I see no need for it on VFD (maybe it is needed for LCD?). There is always exactly 16 characters in one line. I tested with "i" and "w" and digits - always exactly 16 chars in one line.
Montellese Wrote:Yeah that sounds like the non-plus-ultra for the VFD but it will also be a lot of work. I'll put your ideas on my TODO/ideas list.Thanks.
edit: When I change XBMC interface to Serbian, with control mode enabled, while going through menus, any item containing non-English characters is just not displayed (display keeps the last item which has English-only characters). When I move the cursor to English characters menu item, VFD picks up and displays it.

But obviously if there would be more then 32 characters it could still happen that you don't get to see all of them.

I understand that, but 32 is twice as much as 16

Wow, sounds like a great app! Gonna try this when I get home.

Hi guys quick question on getting the LCD screen to work with XBMC...
Since i've read that the latest iMON software works with XBMC
MON/iMEDIAN HD 7.90.0702 Official Version (Jul. 5, 2010, Installation File)
shall we anyways use this XBMC on iMON application kindly made by Montellese?

Please read this post I wrote earlier in this thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=712196&postcount=162
You MUST NOT use port 9090 for XBMC's webserver because XBMC uses that port (hardcoded) for the TCP side of json rpc. Set any other port in the XBMC Network settings (e.g. 8080 or 8181 or whatever is available in your network) and then put the same number into the XBMC settings of XBMC on iMON.
