    I have just built my htpc and i decided on the Silverstone LC03v Case. This is the one that comes with the VFD parallel connector thingy. Now the main issue is that i also perchased the Abit AN8 Ultra Mobo and as i unpacked it realised that it doesent have a parallel input !! :suicide:

    now is tehre any way that i can either

    A: get a usb lead for this ?

    or

    B: Use a USB >> Parallel Dongel and it would work ?

    Thanks

    Andy

    yes that could be an option!

    only issue is that mobo has 3 pci ports. 2 are being used by Tuners and the one spare is very close to the Gfx card which is passivly cooled 6600GT so not much clearance between the 2 cards : /

    How about a USB to parallel converter.
