    Hi Marnus
    have you run the IOClcd.exe programme to discover the USB device address of the lcd module? Then modify the IOClcd.ini file so that this line has the correct address in it. I had the same problem SIOC did not see it, but it works in the SIOC code.

    [ Número de periférico para el USB ]
    [ USB Device number ]
    deviceUSB=34

    then run IOClcd_config.exe file and test by ptting characters into the boxes. make sure you have the correct type of display selected e.g. 16x1(b)
    Make sure all these files are in the same directory.
    Adjust your contrast pot to make sure you can see the letters.

    hope this helps
    regards

    I just got one of these cards yesterday myself and took a while to figure it out.

    First I needed to download USB Check from O/C:

    USBCheck 2.0

    This will give you the USB device number of the USB LCD card. You'll set the deviceUSB=#### in the IOClcd.ini file to this number.

    Then use the IOClcd_config.exe app to create your LCD panels. Save this as IOClcd.lcd (if you use a different name, you change to change the filename in the .ini file)

    Once you get the SIOC Script setup, start SIOC and then start the IOClcd.exe app. Your display should come up now. The LCD card will not show up as device in SIOC though. It uses the IOClcd.exe app, which connects to SIOC.

    I'm also building a PCB board to simplify the wiring too. Connect two pots, connect the LCD screen and plug-in the LCD card's 40-pin cable. Done.
