Request LCD/LED display support?
« on: November 13, 2008, 12:16:07 am »
I'm currently working on converting my Wurlitzer New Orleans juke over to a MP3 unit, and I'm looking at using DW Jukebox, but I need some way to output the currently entered cd/track #'s, and the current playing track numbers to a LED 4 digit display.  Could output to something like LCD Smartie be added to DWJ?

This is planned for version 4.0... in fact I have already purchased a pair of LCD displays for testing.

 LCD Smartie is smart type of software. You dosen't really need such of device to get it work, since LCD Smartie have a virtual one as well which I used as test.

I have not actually seen LCS Smartie before so I don't know how to talk to it yet.. I'll check it out when I get home from work.

Sweet ..... what about LED type displays?
Like three or four digit seven segment LED displays.

Or something like this:

Ya know I've been wanting to implement that on mine for awhile now.  ;)

I'm putting in some extremely basic support for this right now, essentially just dumping the contents of the displays to a text file where LCD Smartie can pick it up.  I have the Now Playing display working now; it's displaying on the LCD Smartie emulator window.  I may just do that one display for now; I'm about to redo all the displays and I can put something better in once I do.

Smarti have dll plugin support, howover i did never check how that work and I do the extract same trick in the Jukebox GUI section in MultiFE. So I think that basic support you made would been fine. Maybe not the smartest, but if it works, it would been fine with that.
