I have my VFD connected to the power switch and the power supply and I
cannot get it to turn on with the iMon PAD remote.

I've been having trouble with the VFD locking up and this weekend I
had to pull that frontend apart to remove the HDD. I noticed that the
USB external to internal dongle that came with this SilverStone LC11
case was faulty. The red wire was loosely (if at all) connected. I've
now ran that usb cable out the back of the case and connected it to
the motherboard there.

I've yet to leave that frontend running over 1 hour which is about the
time it takes for the VFD to stop working. If this doesn't work I'm
giving up on the VFD and iMon pad remote entirely.
