Re: GTT Designer requires admin privileges on every launch?

Understood. I haven't received the display yet, was just trying to take the designer for a test drive. I'll see if it's a significant issue and get back with you if I need the other version.

Thanks!

GTT Designer requires admin privileges on every launch?

Every time I open the designer, I'm prompted for an admin password. Is this intentional? A quick search gives me the impression that it's caused by not having a MS verified publisher certificate, but I also have a very oppressive IT environment at work so that may be related. Turning off UAC isn't a...

Re: GTT Bezel? Mounting behind plastic?

Correction - the HTT series shows an included adhesive bezel, not the GTT. The controller that I'm looking at using doesn't have HDMI or DVI out at all, and a possible new product will likely only have DisplayPort.

GTT Bezel? Mounting behind plastic?

The product page for the GTT shows it with a bezel, but there is no bezel option (B0) in the configuration and nothing in the accessories part of the store. I understand that this is targeted towards OEMs and integrators but I'm struggling to find any info on how to mount something like this either ...

Still no luck with getting the display to cooperate. At this point, what other things can I do to debug the problem? I hate to just leave it unused, but I also can't sell it to someone else in good conscience if it's defective.

Well, no luck with the CVS package install. It compiled without complaint, and the flickering seems to be gone, but the display drops to the second line as with windows. If I grab the nightly tarball, can that be added into the CVS tree, or should i just compile it in a separate folder?

Ethan- Thanks for your input! I had set my LCDd.conf to type=vfd, but I will try vkd as soon as i get a successful compile. I doubt that my mythbuntu box has gcc and the kernel headers, but a quick apt-get should fix that. Have you posted this on launchpad yet? I didn't come across anything for it i...

Hi Clark, thanks for the prompt reply! Setting the baud to 14400 and 38400 result in garbage characters being sent when the 'clear display' button is pressed. Setting it to 19200 behaves correctly. If I send plain text with the raw data command before issuing any other commands, the text is displaye...

VK202-24-USB brightness doesn't work

Well, after about 3 years I've resurrected my HTPC project and started tinkering with my display again. I downloaded uProject and set to work putting the display through its paces, only to discover that the brightness settings have no effect! The VFD Brightness slider sends thick bar graphs to the s...

Well, I've posted on the LCDC forums, but haven't gotten a solution yet. When LCDC starts the display, it shifts the default screen down one row and leaves the top row blank. Any attempt to print text only shows up on the second row. Cursor home only sends the cursor to the start of the bottom row. ...

It's an external USB. I have the internal cable, but don't have the display mounted internally. The PCB is labled as a LK202-24-USB Rev. 1.6 (Canada) The serial no. in the upper left corner is 1546-06M02. The letters "VK" are written in marker on the top of the USB plug. There is not a version stick...

i've tried installing it on a different machine with a fresh install of WinXP Home + SP2. For some reason it would take a few minutes to be recognized on startup (repeated device plugged in/unplugged noises from windows) which would drive me crazy! I looked at the actual device settings in windows d...

more strange behavior...

uProject and DisplayTuner seemed to work correctly for a few minutes, but then went back to second row only. Would a reinstall of the software seem in order?

Well, i plugged it in again, and it booted up just fine. Winamp detected it and the logo dropped one row, then changed to the spectrum analyser that I had picked out before. By sending a single character, it returns to the lower left corner after 20 characters. I'm looking into using the WA3 plugin ...

VK202-24-USB cursor stuck on second row!

I have a VK202-24-USB that I just hooked up and it's not cooperating. While tinkering with spectrum analyser options for winamp I noticed that the display was only showing on the bottom row. When it booted, the MO logo was in the right place. I sent 'cursor home' commands repeatedly with no change i...
