Installations

No driver CD comes with the product. Internet is required to install the LCD module.

There are two versions from this LCD module. If you own our HTPC 1000/2000/5000/6000/8000/1080P HTPC cases, and you wish to upgrade them with a 20X2 programmable LCD, you should purchase the non-5.25” bay version (OEM version) of the PRO-LCD.

If you do not own the HTPC cases above, and you have a 5.25” bay available and you want to add the 20X2 programmable LCD, you should purchase the PRO-LCD-B or PRO-LCD-S version that built in a 5.25” bay chassis. B is the Black aluminum face plate model, and S is the Silver aluminum face plate model.
