Hi Steve, could you tell me which LCD you purchased for this test. It seems large and is exactly what I am looking for.

Thanks.

Much appreciated. Did you see my other post about not being able to access the admin menu's. I have been waiting to find out if I should re-install Pub Jukebox, but fear my registration code will need to be reset. I am not sure what to do to fix the issue.

Thanks.

It is a VFD I salvaged from an old CD100 jukebox. If you would like one just go on to ebay and search for rowe CD100 digital display. I'll help with anything else on this as well.

Thank you very much. Do you know what the dimensions are and how many lines it has in case I can't find the exact one? Maybe I could find something similar.

I did find one but have no idea how to power or cable it. It should be a serial interface correct?

Do you have any computer or electronics experance? I can try and walk you through it. First thing you will need with it is an arduino uno or nano, either one will work.

I am an IT Manager but do not have any experience with nano's or aurduinos. I noticed from the images of the items on ebay that they have plugins for wiring harnesses. Is this where the nano comes in?
