    I'm looking at the Accent case HT400. The supplied VFD is a parallel connector. However it has to route outside the case and plug into the parallel port.

    Is there a way of making the parallel port internal or adding an extension cable to the parallel port inside the case, from the MoB ?

    cheers

    Are you sure it's parallel? Not serial?

    If it's serial you could use a usb/serial adapter & connect to an internal usb header.

    I have the HT400 - it's a parallel VFD.

    I bought a card at a computer fair for my Accent case which has 2 serial out and one parralel port which comes off the pci card on a cable. One day (sigh) I'll get round to working out the pinout and making a cable to go direct to the vfd...till then it is held in place with cable ties.

    I'll try and find out the make/model no. of the no-name card.
