I'm very new to this, so please don't blame me for this (maybe stupid) question.

I need an external LCD to display iTunes' song information. It should have two rows at last; one to scroll the artist und title information, one to show playback and remaining track time, maybe a progress bar, too. Colors should be white on blue.

I'd prefer an USB display, but if there's a serial/parallel one that would fit better, it's ok.

Sorry, this post seems to be a little bit old...
I guess some more information is needed for your application. On what
system are you going to plug this LCD? On a PC? A Mac?

Now another problem: what will you use to interface USB to the LCD?

Then, do you know how to get title / time data from iTunes and send
everything to a USB port?

Many undefined issues.

If you find a USB interfaced LCD, and supposing the driver is written,
you will have "only" to develop the last part: get the info from iTunes
and send it to the LCD.

I know Oggy decided to get a USB interfaced Noritake graphics VFD. Should be a nice display for showing some iTunes info.
