[mythtv-users] Hiper HMC-2K53A-H2 First Impressions (Awesome HDfrontend)

I have searched the entire drive for lcdproc.conf but it is not there. The module is called "MSI Media Live Display" on their site (look under support / Get Pluto). I have attached a bit of source code that may be of assistance perhaps.

    I tried installing Pluto (plutohome.com) on my HMC-2K53A. I was scanning internet for potential VFD drivers (as many of you also seem to have done) and noticed the DM140GINK appearing in one of their plug-in's. Much to my surprise, the VFD fired up and worked like a charm. 

    Pluto is Debian based and open source so for someone a tad more technical then me I am sure it will be very easy to extract the driver from the code and plug in to MythTV (which also is a part of Pluto by the way).
  Can you see what you have in /etc/lcdproc.conf (or where ever your config is) and attach it? I would think that pluto would be using a patched lcdproc instead of driving the vfd directly. I tried plutohome.com and it was down on my end.

    I am not exactly thrilled to use Pluto as it is very difficult to configure with lshwd and lsusb failing due to that broken USB port. What I want is to run the 2.6.22-git16 and a nice simple MythTV and the VFD working.
  This is what I am running, would also like to get the VFD going. I am waiting for Dave Walker to email me the usb sniff log he has on the VFD protocol. He was out of town at the time I asked.
