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
