    Hi all!
    Does anyone have an idea how to use external usb VFD or LCD display to manage media portal?
    Google search drives me here: http://matrixorbital.com/
    Will some of such devices work with MP?

    Some should I guess. Search for MiniDisplay in the forum or wiki. Look for MiniDisplay plugin in your MP configuration.
    Though usually those are actually internal displays but I guess if you are ready to DIY you could mount some externally.
    Most people have various versions of SoundGraph iMON VFD or LCD. Though those really are just legacy devices now.
    Search the forum for Futaba or Noritake you may find interesting results too.
