    Hi tomtg,
    thx for trying trying the driver and sharing your experience.
    Currently I am setting up my new development environment.
    Then I will have a look for the scrolling soon.



    Bye

    Hi Datenschredder,

    Thanks again for your help with this plugin - have been running this smoothly for over a year. Has this now been integrated into mediaportal, and have you released a new version recently?

    thanks

    Hi Ay129,
    thanks for sharing your experience regarding the driver.

    I tried to get it officially integrated into the Minidisplay plugin, got one feedback regarding the code, did a review to keep the coding rules - but never got a feedback again. Guess the team is very busy because of MP 2. I asked once again but did not get an answer.:cry:

    I must admit that I currently have nothing new to release but hopefully find some time in the autumn, when I find no work ouside :).
    Some ideas are:
    -Smoother Scrolling
    -Additional little font and 2 rows
    -Bitmap Interface

    I have no MP 2 installed and wonder if the Minidisplay plugin will still be used so that it makes sense to develop or enhance drivers for this plugin.
    Does anyone know?

    Bye,
    Datenschredder

    Hello Datenschredder, all.

    I also use this Plugin for nearly 1 Year, it works as expected.

    It should be integrated into MP.

    One Improvement should be added:
    Selectable Option: Complete Blank the Display on Suspend, the bright green Clock is boaring at night!

    Thanks to Datenschredder for your work.

    I just upgraded to 1.8 and the driver is still missing. The old minidisplay.dll is not working and crashes MP. We need a new compilation and an official integration into the DLL
