LPT1 customer display.

Hi. I am trying to build myself a musical Kiosk at the house here. and I am seeking maybe a way to scroll the title of the song or whatever to a remote display (plugged into a standard LPT1 port). I work for a POS company so I got a few free displays... and got a system with a touch screen... so I have winamp playing and a screensaver going on... but would like to be able to walk by and just see the basic info of the song playing on my small little text display... I think it is 4 x 20 or something like that... and if it could scroll I think it would look even neater... thanx. I guess this would need to be a plug-in.?

I appreciate the assistance. Unfortunately. they do not seem to work with XP (of the ones I tried.) And the one, it's file that it requires from it's homepage is no longer online (at least I can not reach it)... all of them seem to be written awhile back anyways... for older versions of winamp. I wonder if that has something to do with it also. so, anybody have any suggestions. thanks.

To access the Parallel port under NT, 2000, or XP you have to write a device driver. Other ways can be done, but they are akludge and most likely will not operate correctly.

Has anyone found a solution for this yet for either parallel or serial ports? Anything that would even be capable of sending to multiple displays? If feedback/handshaking isn't required, merely paralleling multiple display devices should work.
What about USB?
What about distance (perhaps 40-50')?

And lots of us aren't programmers and have no idea how to make device drivers.
