Scaleo E VFD Display and Remote Control

Postby Dan25e » Thu May 10, 2012 13:45

Hi all

The VFD display on the front of my Scaleo E and the remote control stopped working recently and I was wondering if it had anything to do with the removal of the TV cards. The display was intermittent before I removed the cards. Sometimes it would work, other times not, but now not at all. The remote stopped working too. I've checked all the leads going to and from the display and the infra red sensor and they are all OK. The wireless keyboard and mouse sensor connects to the same board in the PC as the infra red sensor but they both still work fine (apart from the stupid trackball :evil:).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I will continue to try and fix these problems and, as I did in my last post, put anything I find on this forum.

After much head scratching I stumbled across MediaPortal, an open source media centre program, dowloaded and installed it. After a bit of tweaking during the learning how to use it process, my VFD display and remote control are working again. :D
