    Master card output <-- > resistor (330 ohm, 1/4 watt) <--> DP pin of 7 segment display.

    Look in the documentation of your 7-segment display to see which pin is DP.

    You may also use a slightly lower resistor, like 280 ohm or 220 ohm to get a more brighter dot, just experiment a little. But never connect the DP directly to a master card output without a resistor ...

    ? I do not understand what you mean....

    Note that the DisplayII card of OC does not multiplex the DP pin and the latest PCBs (at least during the last year) do not connect the DP's of each segemnt, so you can just solder the resistor to the pin of the 7-segment display unit of your choice ...
