A big hello to the developers, followed by a question:

Any chance to add LCD support for Elgato Stream Deck?

https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/stream-deck

That would be nice...

Do you mean you would like AIDA64 to allocate one out of the 15 LCD keys available and use it as an external LCD screen to display sensor info and such?  I'm not sure if there's anything more than that possible, like to use multiple keys together or separately by a single software.

It has been a week. I was curious if you can give me an answer, whatever is possible or not to implement this functionality?

I am hoping for a positive answer, because I like the Aida64 software and do not really want to install HW info

Meanwhile we've ordered a Stream Deck device in order to help us develop support for it.  We're currently waiting for it to arrive.  I'll post the updates into this topic.

 Thank you for your efforts. I was hoping for good news. From what I have noticed in your case, no news is usually good news being a sign that you are looking into the matter. I am convinced that you will do a great job exploiting the potential of this device.

Please let me know in which mode would you prefer to use Stream Deck with AIDA64:

1) Just like with HWiNFO, it may be possible for us to come up with a Stream Deck plugin.  In this mode you can use other apps/plugins together with AIDA64, so this would be the most flexible way if you would like to use the Stream Deck software.

2) AIDA64 could take over the whole device and use the 5x3 display matrix as a single (combined) big external display device to let you display any layout you build using the AIDA64 LCD module.

I think that option 1 (Just like with HWiNFO) makes the most sense. You can display any value that you need, without blocking the device. The intended use scenario is having a subfolder with the sensors, while keeping the rest of the buttons for other functions. Perhaps CPU and GPU visible in all the other shortcut folders to always have a general view of the most important stats, no matter what I do.

Thank you for moving so fast with this!

Not quite well, since coming up with a plugin from scratch is quite the work.  And we wouldn't want to copy the existing plugin for HWiNFO to not violate the IP of its developer.  We did try to contact him on GitHub, but no response yet.

It would be much easier to go with option #2, but I understand that you would prefer to use multiple applications in the same time for your Stream Deck instead of AIDA64 taking over the whole device.

 Well, I wish I could help with that... But I can`t. I will be patient. Thank you for your efforts!

If you decide to go with that, please don't forget that there are also 3x2 and 8x4 versions of the elgato streamdeck out there. I don't know if that would make any difference on those.

Yes, we're aware of that.  There're also 2 different versions of Stream Deck Original, and 2 different image formats they expect to receive from the host.  So -- quite frankly -- it's not as easy as I assumed :)

Any progress?

Yes, we've managed to add support for all 4 versions (Original v1, Original v2, Mini, XL) of the Elgato Stream Deck device in the latest AIDA64 beta update:

https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

Please note that it's only the first step (hopefully in the right direction).  It will only use the bottom-right (last) button as a LCD screen.  But the good news is that it should work fine even when you're using the other buttons for other purposes via the Stream Deck software.  Let me know how it works for you.

Thank you for putting in the effort to implement this feature. It works great. Only one thing that I don`t know if you are aware: it does not know of the folder structure of the device ( meaning that it is always there, no matter if you are in the first screen or in a subfolder of functions). Interesting fact: even if it is placed over a uised buton, it only overrides the graphic and not the function. The button can still be pressed and works as configured.

Thank you for your feedback.  Yes, we're aware of those pecularities.  AIDA64 simply pushes the image onto the device to the pre-defined key, without taking into account any interference or any other processes simultaneously accessing the device.  As long as the other process (Stream Deck Software) doesn't alter the key that AIDA64 updates, they should work well together.

It is normal for wip. I  don`t do much coding except for occasional scripting, but even that can get... intense. Writing a plugin from scratch is no easy task. I think you did a great job so far. 

I like the fact that you can still use a button, even if it is controlled by Aida64. I can see the potential: having a graph for say, total CPU usage and when you press the button, you get a full (6,15,32 whatever Elgato you use) of details, like per CPU usage, power usage, thermals...

Keep up the good work. I think you provide great customer support.

Latest updates lists support for Elgato Stream Deck. Although I understand, at least partially, the difficulties of adding this feature and therefore willing to be patient with its implementation, I can not say that the actual state of development merits the name of "support for Elgato Stream Deck"...

IMHO the current solution is already way more useful than having no support for Stream Deck :)

  Not to rain on anyone parade, as the saying goes, but this is pretty much useless for any practical purposes. Having no option to choose the button to use and having an animated status icon that is "folder structure agnostic" and therefore always showing no matter in what subfolder I am forces me to give up one of the 15 keys that I have in exchange for 1 system status. Not good at all. The plugin that I have mentioned at the beginning of this post (totally free and depending on an app that is also totally free) gives the user full control.

  I did not liked that option because it meant installing yet another system monitoring app to run alongside Aida64. Giving the current status of development for this feature in Aida64, it seems that I am forced to do that, if I want to use my Stream Deck for system monitoring.

  Hope you will make progress in the future with the development of this feature, so people will not have to use this unfortunate workaround. Well... nobody can do everything, so I can`t say that I blame you for not making a priority out of this request...

 So, what can I wish you? Happy coding? Ok, happy coding and a nice day onward!

Thank you.  Quite frankly, I wish we had the time and resources to develop a Stream Deck plugin for AIDA64 from scratch.  But in the current situation I cannot make any promises about it.  So it's either the current solution or taking over the whole device -- but none of those seems to be 100% suitable for your requirements.

I would love this.

For 10 years I've routinely checked my keyboard's LCD to see my PC's current CPU load, FPS, RAM level, etc. It's a fantastically useful convenience. But my keyboard is dying and I've had to replace it with a non-LCD keyboard. :(

If I could put some of the info on my Stream Decks, it would at least make my withdrawal symptoms less painful :D

      Hello,
      I hope this hasn't already been covered, not found this exact question though already asked.
      4D Systems makes a bunch of LCD products which mainly have UART interfaces. They are not primary display interfaces, so don't take an HDMI input etc from your PC, they can be programmed to handle serial data and display it in various ways. You design the GUI yourself in their IDE and then you feed it the data you want in the known format, and make it do what you like with that data.
      What I am trying to find out is if there is a way to use AIDA64 to collect the data from the PC, such as CPU temperature etc, and send the data out the UART to the display. I don't want all the graphics from AIDA64, all I want is the data for the sensors.
      I have used AIDA64 for a while, going to a external HDMI monitor and displaying data on that, and it works, but now and then I get issues where windows decides the little monitor is the primary, or the mouse goes in there and gets stuck, and all sorts of other weird things. I also dont want it loading my GPU at all, I just want it off that whole system entirely.
      Is there a way to have AIDA64 export in a stream the selected Sensor data, to the serial UART? These 4D displays can handle BAUD's into the MBaud rates, so not 9600 or 115200 type levels.
      If there is, can you please point me in the right direction.
      If there is a way to get this data, I can create a demo project use a 4D Systems display, and post that up here for other people to use as a base. I have used 4D displays for years in various applications at work and around the house, we build full systems at work using their products, and it just seems the perfect application for PC Chassis builds, rather than using HDMI type solutions off the GPU. Let the display do the GUI 'heavy lifting' itself with its GPU and just feed it the data it is looking for from AIDA64.
      Any tips would be appreciated
      Regards

      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.
