Yves released an updated Winamp plugin that controls the #twatch ethernet LCD screen:
Changes include : custom char to display current playing status, new look for the progress bar, improved error condition handling (still not bullet proof but getting there), and my part for the environment, the backlight is now turned off when the playing status is stopped.
We covered the previous version here. There’s a lot of other scripts in the #twatch SVN folder too.
There are still a few #twatch ethernet LCD backpacks (PCB only) available for $30, including worldwide shipping. You’ll need to add your own 4*20 LCD screen, like this one from Seeed Studio.
