I'm new to Media Portal, have been using GBPVR but prefer Medial Portal.
Back on topic.
I have a H44780 and have tried all the H44780 type none of them display anything except for Joe Daltons driver, but I have the same problem, the back light flickers then turns off, making reading the display impossible.
Hope this can be fixed soon.
Balatron, you mentioned that it did work. Would it be possible to get an older version of the LCD plugin and Joe Daltons H44780 driver and use it with the current release of Media Portal.
Well I got around the problem with the HD44780. I've changed the LCD device to Clipboard. Then I wrote a program that outputs the info to the LCD when the clipboard datachanges. I already had written a program to interface with the HD44780 so was not difficult.
Just need to tweak the application. So if media portal is not running the LCD turns off and when running LCD turns on. Plus some other tweaks.
