2.6.0 Services Team XBMC: MemphizDaniel 'herrnst' Scheller 12,280 124.42 KB Nov 13, 2013

Displays configurable information e.g. about playing media or XBMC status on any LC/VF-display driven by LCDproc, and acts as direct drop-in replacement to the LCD/VFD-feature previously available in XBMC's core. Supports additional display elements (icons, bars) on SoundGraph iMON LCD and Targa/Futaba mdm166a VFD hardware. Requires a properly configured and running LCDd either locally or somewhere on the network.
