  • I'm on the HTPCentric Podcast

    I had a great time joining in on the HTPCentric hardware discussion.  We spent a lot of time on GPUs and why deinterlacing performance is really important, but there should be something for everyone if you're interested in building a HTPC.

  • Updated LcdWriter

    I posted an updated version of LcdWriter a couple days ago.  The main difference is that it supports the VFD and remote in Moneual's MonCaso 320 HTPC case (also works with the remote in the 312), but there were some architectual changes as well.

    • LcdWriterService is no longer required for displays that aren't HD44780 based (the service can't be used with the 320/312 and provide remote support).
    • Display implementation reorgainzation.  So if you're a previous user make sure you choose the right DLL.
