Im ready to buy one now I think.. but a few questions

Hi,

I have 2k for my OS

1)will the "SKD204-634-SG-LG" work with 2k and Wintest software.?


2)I know ill need some plugins for it. how many are there for 2k? and can someone please list a few for me?

3)I have MBM5 and winamp. I would love to see my MP3s scrolling or a EQ output :)

4) do i just buy the "SKD204-634-SG-LG" and a serial cable and im all set?

thanks so much ,
Lotust

Cheapest 16x2
(This will load two 16x2 LCDs in the cart--a positive and a negative, you only need one though.)

Cheapest 20x4

(This will load two 20x4 LCDs in the cart--a positive and a negative, you only need one though.)

Either of these need an add on of the Wirz or Econo LCD:

(This will load a serial 20x4 and cables.)
Easiest

Could be worse.

Yes.

>2)I know ill need some plugins for it. how many are there

Wander throught the links page. I know the NT port of LCDproc
should work on 2K.

>3)I have MBM5 and winamp. I would love to see my MP3s
>scrolling or a EQ output

I think that it can be done under 2K, but I am not sure of the SW combination off the top of my head.

>4) do i just buy the "SKD204-634-SG-LG" and a serial cable
>and im all set?

The backlight cable is also pretty handy, and they will solder it on for you, so then it is just connectors.
