Calibos Posted October 17, 2021 Share Posted October 17, 2021 Apologies Mods for double posting, I realised my other thread might be in the wrong sub-forum. If you need to delete one, please delete the other one in the 'General' sub-forum. I have long planned a 'Snowblind Mod' for the Windowed side panel of my soon to be built 12 bay Media Server. https://youtu.be/uq8GTglYJNw?t=711 The USB Monitor I am using as the donor screen for the Snowblind Mod is the AOC 1366x768 e1659Fwu 16 Inch Portable LED Glossy Black USB 3.0 Monitor. However, I also want to mount a 7" HDMI Display as a Sensor Panel in the front 5.25" Bays of the case. That 7" Monitor I'd be using for the Sensor Panel is the Raspberry Pi Monitor, EVICIV 7 Inch Touchscreen Monitor, 1024x600 HD Display. I would also have a 1080p AOC Desktop monitor attached to the PC (No Sensor panel needed for that). Below is an Old Render of an early iteration of my idea. Hadn't heard of SnowBlind Mods back then, I'm not installing so many hotswap bays anymore, but I am actually going back to the idea of having a front mounted sensor panel screen like in this old render and like I said above. So picture that left side case window with 12 Hotswap bays in the bottom half. I'd cover the whole acrylic window with black Vinyl. In the bottom half of the Vinyl would be a large laser cutout rectangle. (Laser Cut Logo Decals in the top half of the vinyl backlit with the Backlight panel of the Donor screen. Yay, no e-waste!!). The LCD layer of the Donor screen is affixed on the inside lined up with this rectangular cutout in the Vinyl. You'd still be able to see the Hotswap bays. On that transparent screen I would create a sensor panel such that the HDD widgets/icons I would create are aligned over the physical HDD Bay they correspond to. 'Virtual' & 'Live' Labels so to speak. So the big question is this. Can I run 2 sensor panels from one instance of AIDA64. The front mounted 7" HDMI Sensor Panel displaying only CPU, RAM info etc and the 'SnowBlind' USB Sensor panel displaying only Hard Drive related information where I would create a layout with 'Virtual' & 'Live' labels for each HDD with the Virtual label aligned over the actual physical Hotswap Bay it corresponds to. I found this quote from Fiery from last year where he says this to a similar question but I am not sure if his suggestion is what I am effectively doing with 2 discrete Displays for my sensor panels. Quote I know it's not the best advice, and also it would cost you money, but picking one (or even more than one) external LCD screen would enable you to use the LCD facility of AIDA64 and effectively double or triple the amount of "SensorPanels" you can use at any given time. For example, if you picked up a BeadaPanel, you could place your secondary readings on it using the same layout editor that you use for SensorPanel.
