OEM or PC case Manufacturer and Case model : Luxa2 LM100
MediaPortal Version : MP 1.0.2
Cyberdisplay/Minidisplay version : MiniDisplayLibrary_Debug_v4.2
Operating System : XP SP3
Motherboard : Intel DG45FC
Imon Display Model : iMON OEM (LCD)
Connection kind : USB 2.0 (directly on MB)
OEM Type : Type A
Firmware : I will updated this later...
IMon Manager Version : 7.60.0521
Remote Controller : iMon Pad (RM200)

I configured iMon manager to control mediaportal as it is discribed here : https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...rt-53/imon-remotes-mapping-mediaportal-29442/
Your keyboard need to be configured in "English" if you want numeric buttons to work.
I used IRSS (ver. 1.4.2.2391) only for TV3 blaster and translator (to control volume of my amplifier).

Minidisplay is configured like this (see attached files)

Frontview in iMon manger is configured as "never".

Only followings icons work : music, movie, cd/dvd, tv, mp3, and top/bottom bars, disk icon if I enable them in minidisplay config.
With configuration editor, I modified the configuration to have all informations "centered" and to have date and time in idle mode.

All works fine : no bug, no MP crashes, all buttons on my remote work.

OEM or PC case Manufacturer and Case model : Antec Fusion Remote EU
MediaPortal Version : 1.1.0 RC2
Cyberdisplay/Minidisplay version :
Operating System : Windows Vista

IMon Manager Version : 7.77

I installed iMon software from Antecs driver cd, which came with the case. Downloaded newer version as iMon suggested.

Configure MP as in images attached below. Main panel should now work, this version of iMon (7.77) has also MediaPortal shortcuts ready.

Set your remote as RM200

Open iMon manager application.

Uncheck all Frontview display messages (News, System information etc)
Set display starting to Never (Frontwiev->Common -tab)

Open MediaPortal Settings (Advanced mode), plugins->Minidisplay, Config

Set as in images below.

IF AND ONLY IF you can't get case front display to work with settings below, you can try following:

Remove any iMon version currently installed.

Download iMon 7.60 from here: iMON/iMEDIAN HD version 7.60.0521 (May 21, 2009) - Soundgraph Forums

Install iMon 7.60, uncheck iMon HD unless you really want to install it.
Set your remote as RM200

Open iMon manager application.

Uncheck all Frontview display messages (News, System information etc)
Set display starting to Never (Frontwiev->Common -tab)

Open MediaPortal Settings (Advanced mode), plugins->Minidisplay, Config
set options as below.

Now you can update to iMon 7.77 and you'll get remote control to work with MP.

    AW: Cyberdisplay/Minidisplay + iMon VFD/LCD (+remote) : solution database

    OEM or PC case Manufacturer and Case model : Antec Fusion Remote
    MediaPortal Version : 1.1.2
    Cyberdisplay/Minidisplay version : Soundgraph 0x38
    Operating System : Win XP SP3
    Motherboard : MSI 890GXM
    Imon Display Model : Imon 7.6
    Connection kind : USB
    Firmware : 0x38
    IMon Manager Version : 7.6

    Some users mentioned the problem, that the display remains on when the machine is sent to standby.
    Here is my workaround:
    - install MPStandbyHandler
    - set in Imon-manager/frontview to switch off backlight when Imon is not running
    - set in minidisplay-plugin/advanced/Imon: "Ensure is running before driver start"
    - create a textfile with this content (without quotes): "taskkill /im imon.exe"
    - save this file somewhere as dispoff.bat
    - set in MPStandbyHandler/suspend an external command that executes this bat-file
    - set in MPStandbyHandler/suspend "MediaportalStop" with 1 second delay
    - set in MPStandbyHandler/resume "MediaportalStart"

    When you now send your machine to standby via remote Imon will be stopped and as a result of this the backlight goes off (the 1 second delay is to ensure that the display "recognizes" the closed Imon). The pc goes to standby. After resume the restarted Mediaportal itself starts Imon and the display is restartet.
    This works very well for me and so i hope it will also be useful for you.

    VFD is working fine for me. But I'd really like the VFD to show when I change the volume either on the remote or the knob. Is there any way to do that?
