Kinda odd. I've just recently installed a new computer and had no problem with the LCDDRo. I'd check the serial port settings in the General Config to make sure it's not conflicting.

Here's a new LCD Dro. The older versions had a problem with saving/replacing the comport value in the XML.  Now if we could just get Mach3 to stop hanging on shutdown while the DLL is loaded.

I think there's a serial version of the gravitech board. As for the USB, it's just a USB-> serial conversion. I really need to upload a new version of the plugin next couple of days.

And I just discovered my dead LCD display this morning. going to be a few weeks before I can get a new one from china. although I see gravitech is having a sale on them right now. Maybe I'll order one of their's.

It's more of a pain than anything. Mach3 outputs all 3 versions of that string in the same variable alternating between them I believe. That's what it does with the 00:00 and 00:00:00 on my setup and I assume it does  similar with yours. Just a matter of cutting the string at the appropriate place or placing it correctly.

And therein lies the problem with the wrap around :) my version of Mach3 only has 2 possibilities for the runtime display. 00:00 and 00:00:00. Yours on there other hand has a third option it seems. 00:00:00:00.  anyways I'll make a programming change and include hours again.

0 in the top corner is the line counter on the currently running program. and the 00:00 is the running time of the program. I wanted to use the estimated time, but that variable is not used by Mach3. I also believe it might be highly variable and I wouldn't be able to calc it.

I suspect this might be some overrun from the runtime display. I'm not seeing this on my end at all, but then it could be that your setup is slightly differant. I noticed that the runtime display has several differant lengths to it. This variable is actually formatted by Mach3 internally. unfortunately is not available as a number so I could format it myself. I've modified the source so that only 4 digits plus : are displayed. I'll email you a copy of it to see if fixes the problem your seeing.

I updated the LCD DRo plugin I wrote. The comport is NOT hardcoded, but you do have to manually edit the xml file using the XML reader. I still do not have working menu's. It seems it's easy to crash Mach3 when adding menus. Anyways, it's over in the plugin's forum
