We've added support for parallel port connected HD44780 character LCD and VFD displays, using the classic 8-bit Winamp wiring scheme. We've also implemented support for parallel port connected KS0108 LCD displays.

You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD. The only thing needed to enable this feature is the LCD to be connected to a parallel port. PCI and PCIe parallel port controllers cards are fully supported. SilverStone FP54 and similar parallel port connected drive bay devices using HD44780-compatible displays are also supported.

You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:

Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Adafruit, Dangerous Prototypes HD44780, Odroid-Show, picoLCD 20x4, Pyramid, Roccat Valo, USB2LCD+, Wallbraun LUI LCDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.

Note: upcoming AIDA64 beta releases will implement support for more parallel port connected LCDs. If you have such an LCD, please post a message into this topic stating what kind of LCD do you have and what sort of controller (driver) is it based on.

Regards,

Fiery

We've implemented support for parallel port connected Epson SED1520 controller based LCDs and for parallel port connected Toshiba T6963C controller based LCDs in the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

      Is it possible to use 2 (or more) LCDs display different data?  Example: #1 for essential CPU etc while a #2 would have cooling info like fans, liquid temps etc.  If so... what are some recommendations?  Keep hearing Beada (which could work).  Alternatively, is there a larger compatible LCD?  Ideallly bar style but 17-18 wide.
      TY in advance for any guidance!!

      hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

      i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
      on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?
      also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

      i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 
      any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
      Thanks folks.

      Hey guys!
      Im hoping for some input regarding my question. I saw, AIDA64 is supporting a lot of different displays and interfaces. Now which one to choose? Heres some more input from me about what im looking for:
      [Mandatory] 5-8 inch LCD display [Mandatory] only USB powered [Mandatory] black frame design to match my case, if possible [Optional] A flat, not too thick one [Optional] small bezels if possible [Optional] No buttons neccessary, i want to place it inside of my case. [Optional] an internal USB connector to directly connect it to the motherboard At the moment im using some Aquacomputer Vision OLEDs which are working fine. But i can already see some burn in and they are pretty small. Since theres no LCD coming from Aquacomputer anytime soon, im thinking about using AIDA64 to get my data on screen. I have 3 of those OLED on each of the drive bay covers, this is more or less the space i have available
      I have attached a screenshot of the system with the OLEDs and their current placement for you to visualize.
       
      Thank you for your suggestions!
