I'm having problems with the pics in your last two articles (they don't load)...
Looking at the html the an example ref is http://188.8.131.52:81/images/articles/102/1.jpg which doesn't work for me, where as http://www.bit-tech.net/images/articles/102/1.jpg does??
if it was possible, the wires should have gone down the little tube and out of the back (if they could be fitted in of course), it'd look neater i think, oh and also if the wires at the back were in black heatshrink
heh dont get me wrong its a kick ass mod, all points to macroman!
Ok Ok! I'll strip it down and start again. Huh!
Genius.. wondering if Macroman is defecting from Razor-Tech over to Bit-Tech. Good use of 634 20x4, I have two Crystalfontz units and they are great to work with. I agree with Rich that the wires should have come out of the shaft of the old Creative microphone stand to make it look a little neater. Overall its a kick as mod and sets a standard for external LCD displays.
what a beut!
i think macroman shoul;d go into buisness and sell all his mods, he'd make a packet
Firewall blocking port 81 ?
That's quite possible (college connection) - so is there no soln to this? Am I really not going ot be able to read your articles and see your pictures in future

Means little to me but one of you might know whats up.
Picture on the frontpage looks very cool indeed...........kind of wish I'd gone more in debt now to get the bigger display instead of the 2x20 I've got.
i dont think macro could have put the wires down the shaft of the ex mic, cos the serial cable would be a bit too phatt, but i may be wrong.
I had to reload nearly all the pics in the article, but they worked the 2nd time
half way down i had to tell all teh images to show image ... then they loaded fine
oh well ...
Nice one macroman, I dont quite understand exactly where you connected the second wire from the manual contrast knob.
Right, the hole the wires run through is 1.5mm the stem is less than 2mm thick. If I could, I would have run the serial and power cables through it, but even using thinner wire would have been too thick. The power cable has to carry about 0.7Amps!
Spike- the preset has three contacts, the wiper goes to R8 as shown the other two, one goes to 0V the other to 5V. I just picked up the appropriate voltages off the board.
Images load fine for me.
Hey macro, is that backlight going through any resistors or is it just connected straight to 5v, mine gets a bit hot at 5v.
Macroman... a nice simple question for ya, where did you get the black casing for the LCD? i might hve missed it, but does it come with the LCD?
Is nothing safe from macroman ? wonder if the bods at creative though a mic could be put to an even better use ?
The box is from Rapid Electronics stock code:30-2070 and no. it doesn't come with an LCD. You have to win that.
That is some seriously nice work!! whow..... /me weeps at my pathetic modding knowledge
