Barry has modified the Freebox and we have succesfully made it work with the new Chinesse 17" signs (very nicely) I may add.

I have spoken at lenght with the supplier.

I can get them for $100 (delivered to your door)

or if we order 10 we can get them for about $95 (a piece)

Let me know whos interested, (I HAVE MINE) but if anyone else wants one let me know

I have made a YOUTUBE Video that can be seen here

Im currently using a serial comport to run my Touch screen, but I have another one on this machine. Are they USB or serial?
Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS
Post by: Barcrest on August 03, 2007, 12:26:32 AM
Serial
Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS
Post by: netcat on August 03, 2007, 04:27:00 AM
they are serial I for instance have only one serial port on my jukebix (Currently being used by my touchscreen), In order to get around this problem I use the LED sign with one of these converters

I have the same issue as netcat with only one serial port and it is being used for my touch screen. I Currently have a Beta Brite and was wondering if any knows or has used one of those usb to serial cables with a Beta Brite or knows if it would work. It noted on the website that it is not recognized as a standard com port and was not sure if Freeox would recognize it. I do have a free pci slot and could put in an i/o card if needed, but would like to use the usb to serial if possible.

Casper is correct, i am in the UK and these signs are not easy to come by especially at this price. You can get some cheap ones but they will not connect to your p.c.

yes instruct vendor value $20 when i get anything from hong kong i instruct seller to send as a gift this also canget round the uk huge duty fees.

Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS Only $100 Shipped (Taking orders)
Post by: netcat on August 15, 2007, 07:55:37 PM
FYI PROPER SETTINGS FOR THESE SIGNS WITHIN FREEBOX

TYPE:        CHINESE BIG BOARD (which technically is wrong Barcrest needs to change this to Chinesse little board)

Baud Rate:  2400
Data Bits:     8
Stop Bits:     1
Parity:       None

That would read as follows in config line: 2400,n,8,1

BE CAREFUL, FREEBOX HAS A BUG IF YOU ENTER THIS INFO INCORRECTLY FREEBOX WILL CRASH UPON STARTING

(ie   2400,8,n,1 will make freebox crash, notice I inverted order of 8 and n)

I'm also missing one bracket but it is not a problem, I can make another plan. I'm just informing you about it cause I saw that some els also had one bracket missing.

One question: I can make it display other info but not when freebox is running. Is there a way around this?
                    Meaning, can I display the track info as well as some other stuff?


                    Thanks

I have to say the led sign is a very nice addition to already awesome software. I enjoy the led sign very much and I have to say it is well worth the $100.

Thanks again.

Hey Netcat:

Mine only had one mounting bracket.  Is that a pain in the ass to get me another?

=J

i can really help out here. i noticed immediatly i too only had one bracket in the box. so that makes 3 us now. but im not concerned cuz i work with metal and make these type things everyday at work and wont be using theres anyways. so if anyone else needs these brackets made or maybe even custom brackets as i'll be making for mine i can produce them quickly with no effort.  just let me know some measurements for any custom brackets and i can hook it up.

Barcrest and netcat,

Can either of you point me to any resources for programming this display from my own software?
I know that it comes with a program for setting up messages, but I'd like to use it with some of my own programs.
I've read the user manual, but it only talks about the included program; it doesn't have any
information about the serial communications protocol used by the display.

Thanks for any help!

Regards,
Eric

Eric, what software have you written and what language is it written in. I can give you the source depending on what language you are using.
Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS Only $100 Shipped (Taking orders)
Post by: ebs on May 09, 2008, 02:17:02 PM
Barry,

I have written a few messaging and home automation applications,
most in PureBasic (GREAT language, BTW: www.purebasic.com (http://www.purebasic.com)).
I can use your source code in QBasic (mentioned by Tony) or C/C++.

Thanks very much for your offer!

Regards,
Eric
Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS Only $100 Shipped (Taking orders)
Post by: Barcrest on May 09, 2008, 02:30:44 PM
Actually if Tony has sent you the Qbasic source mine is no different just coded in VB. It is basically just the case of sending a correctly formatted string to the com port. The tricky part is getting the header right, after that it's plain sailing. If you search on the web there are PDF versions of the ALPHA SIGNS command structure and what CHR codes you need to send.
Title: Re: LED & LCD SCREENS Only $100 Shipped (Taking orders)
Post by: ebs on May 09, 2008, 03:34:13 PM
Barry,

Tony hasn't sent me his QBasic code yet, and I'd prefer your VB code if you're willing to send it.
Please send it to ebsebs AT roadrunner DOT com.

Thanks for your suggestion about the ALPHA Signs PDF document - I'll start searching!

Regards,
Eric

I have been contacted by a number of people in the pasts Months requesting LED signs.

I DID receive confirmation from the vendor today that he still has them, pricing is going to depend on the amount we order I believe for 5 or 6 we sill may be able to get them for arounf $100.

I BELIEVE last time shipping to outside the US was about $20 more, can one of the International people that ordered last time confirm this for me ??

EMail me to tony@780tech.com or reply her ein the forum and I will start making a list of people to see how many we can get.

Regards.

Uppon receiving a load of requests, I tracked down the supplier, noegotiated pricing again and posted the offer to put together an order (this was 2 month ago)

I received 1 reply, and am not making anything off of these signs.

We need to order at least 10 to get the right price and there doesnt appear to be any interest.

At least for now the ordering has been posponed if you want  to round up 10 people I will be happy to help.

I think with shipping the ones netcat can get would be cheaper. He was doing them $100 shipped US so even at $150 that is only about 75 and we know those ones work.

They do come up on ebay, look under LED TICKER. Problem if you get one off ebay i might not be able to support it. However if it connects to a PC I should be able to.
