Hey thanks for getting back to me. I am actually running the build from yesterday. But tried the day before that and had issues as well.
I will just want until your next update and we should be good to go. Thanks again for the response.

I'm using an Antec Veris Elite. I have installed the iMon software found here.
How is your software different? I have the iMon working and reading commands from my Harmony (using MCE Remote buttons), which is great but the display sucks.
The remote portion allows me to assign key presses like keyboard "S", "C", and "ESC" to specific buttons on the remote.
As I said before the display part sucks. It only displays the currently playing file and time remaining. I would like to see where I am currently at in the xbmc menu when a file is not playing.
I have the remote set up exactly how I like it so I am hesitant to try this because I don't want to mess anything up.

i agree the LCD Screen more for eye candy than pratical,,,,
mine wasnt displaying alot of stuff besides DATE & TIME
when i was not in XBMC, and when i was in, would only display
FILE NAME thats playing...
but do this, in XBMC-n-iMON, enable CONTROL MODE (see image)
this will pretty much display the name of everything highlighted
in your XBMC!! Since then, im really starting to like the LCD display
but if i may, i have a queston,
am suppose to see the EQ when playing an MP3 in XBMC?
just like in this video --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGnU7bxAMzI&feature=related
i cant seem to find a way to make the EQ appear when a song is playing..
Also, EQ doesnt even appear when playing an MP3 within SoundGaph's own MEdia Centre application!? what could be wrong?

I don't think the plugin supports the graphic equaliser at least in control mode. It is a something that I would like to see added at some point if it is possible.
You should get the graphic equaliser when using the default application. I think I had to check the box for 'all system sounds' to get it working and make sure it is set to the right playback device too.

so this works only in iMON media center application??
wont work if im using AIMP2 to play mp3's??

Is there anything similar for non-iMON LCDs?
Like the Zalman HD160XT display.

The equaliser should work for any sound that gets made by the computer regardless of the application (unless using the xbmc plugin while running xbmc).
Check the following are setup in imon manager:
Frontview - Automode - Graphic equaliser (Ticked)
Frontview - Automode - Eq Trigger (3% - Personal preference but i think it likes a low figure)
Frontview - Graphic Equaliser - All System Sounds (Ticked) and I have my Eq Source set as 'Speakers' but it may be different for yours.
Good luck and let me know if none of these settings work for you or you already have them set.

thanks for the help retro11!
i'll try again,,, maybe it didnt work because XBMC-on-IMON was running...
actually, its running 24/7... i never shut it down...
i mean, even tho XBMC is not running, XBMC-on-IMON is!!
could it be the culprit?
- eskro - 2011-04-17 22:22
ok nothing works...
i did all as told...
and also nothing else but time and date i see...
stuff like system information never shows!!
same for media information & the EQ..
whats going on??
