TextLCD (Display) Boards

The TextLCD service was tested with a 2 row x 20 chr display.

Note that as long as the board is plugged into a USB port it will keep the text on the display as well as the last setting of the backlight, cursor and contrast. However, if you stop and then restart the service it cannot read from the TextLCD board. Consequently the service will always start out with the same configuration regardless of what the state of the board really is. This is just the way it works. (Confirmed with Phidgets support).

The XSLT file should really be on the TextLCD service instead of the Test service. This will be fixed in a future release.
