iMON VFD front display
VFD stands for Vacuum Fluorescent Display and has brilliant display and high readability.
The iMON VFD installed on this HTPC's VFD display can display 16*2 characters. Using the iMON manger application, you can choose to either display one of these information or automatically cycle through one, several or all of them. You can also customize the contents for each information using the iMON manager, e.g. you can use the RSS feed of your favourite news site for the Daily News and configure your pop3/IMAP e-mail account to be checked at specified intervals.
You can install your own infra MCE remote and receiver to use this HTPC to enhance your experience. MCE remote may be included for a fee or you can purchase one from Ebay.
See the screenshots below for examples of how the VFD will look like. For additional information on the iMON VFD display and IR receiver, please visit the web page or download the user manual in the download link below.
