    iMON VFD -- sooo close

    Hi guys,

    Am using an iMON VFD device and have gone through and set it up thanks to a few forum posts around - when I run

    sudo LCDd -f -r 4

    in the terminal it comes up and changes the display on the VFD - so this is telling me the drivers are working.

    Something else thats interesting here is that it says its Listening for Queries on 127.0.0.1:13666 in the terminal

    When exiting out of this it displays

    "Thanks for using
    LCDProc and Linux"

    I just can't get Myth or anything else to display anything on it. I have configured Myth to use an LCD Device in the Appearance settings but nothing seems to happen, it just keeps saying Thanks for using LCDProc and Linux. I know it must be something really small but how do I get Myth to display the various options on the panel?



    Thanks for any help in advance!

    Ok update, I have this now displaying the information on mythlcdserver - but only if I run that command

    sudo LCDd -f -r 4

    and then in a seperate terminal run lcdproc then open myth...

    How do I get those two things to run automatically on bootup!?
