I have a Thermaltake MoZart media lab case that has a Imon VFD display in it, currently im using the Imon softwear that was with the case, this softwear when loaded has a very big blue dial loaded on the computer desktop that tends to get in the way of a lot of softwear like DVBViewer. I also dont use the Media Labs remote that came with the case as I use a Logitech Harmony to control VMC through the MCE USB IR sender that came with my PVR 150MCE.

What other softwear do people use for their VFDs and what use really are they as they tend to be quite far from your sitting position to read, so im intrested to see how other people have there systems set up with VFDs

Softwear? Is that like code to dress yourself by?Tongue out

There is an option in the iMon settings to turn that stupid dial off. It was the first thing I did.

I have my VFD set to display graphicEQ and remote commands only. I like it reacting to remote commands because during times my HTPC runs slow I know the command was issued because it shows on the VFD. My case also has an inbuild IR reciever which is good, but it restricts its usage to MCE compatable remotes only. This isnt too bad though, since the iMon software allows me to remap the keys depending what program is running ie. DVBviewer. It even allows you to remap that infamous Green Button so that MCE doesnt startup when pressed.

It all works very well.
