    Please could I have recommendations for a suitable VFD for installation in a 5.25 bay.

    I do prefer the high contrast VFDs to LCD, USB powered if possible. Anyone got any ideas for one with good MP compatibility?

    I don't need an IR receiver, just a display. I use IMON on a different machine but only need a display on this one.

    Thanks for any suggestions :)

    In short Teensy with Noritake VFD. I've had one installed for years and it is still working fine. Not using MP much though since my sat provider locked me out.

    Be warned it's not easy and I can't recommend attempting that if you are not a gifted software engineer with a lot of time on your hands

    Thank you for the ideas Stéphane, unfortunately I am a gifted Chartered Surveyor with no spare time at all, so I am hoping to find something simpler that I can plug to a USB header on the motherboard and use the settings in MiniDisplay. :unsure:
