quick question on lcd size

do you think a 16x2 is too small to show weather info?

And Also a 634 Display wont fit in a single drive bay right?

I show 3 lines of weather info on my 634.

- Location
- Date/Time
- Current weather conditions

With the rss/xml plugin, you can choose the info to be displayed. A 16 x 2 would be adequate, with the lines set to scroll.

If this is a question about an existing display, I hope this answers your question. If you are in the market for a new one, I would HIGHLY recommend the 635. 20x4 in a single 5-1/4 bay. Buttons/LEDS/etec. I have one and it is simply the best display you can get for features vs price.

Well this would be my 2nd lcd from crystalfontz just wondering which one is best.
The 634 would not fit in a single drive bay. The 635 would do so and is close tiled so text appears neater. The 635 also has a keypad, which has gained a lot of support under beta testing recently. As a bonus it also has a compliment of LEDs to showcase certain features. Your call! ;)

But here is the thing... weather software for the 634 would it still work with the 635?
Yep, in fact you would not even have to edit the screens (Unless you wanted to add screen specific button control for the 635)!

I forsee the addition of button control, in the very near future, being a quick and easy change too. Watcha waiting for? ;)
