The other thread leads to the HD61830 controller (which is now replaced with the LC7981). If your display is like that other one, then the SED controller won't work for your display. I'm not sure which one yours uses. I've made some LC7981 controllers in the past, but I don't think anyone else makes them anymore. If you had a datasheet, that would be a big bonus. If not, you could trace the connections back from the 14 pin connector and find out where they go on the LC7940/LC7942 IC's. Get the datasheets for the LC794X's and it will help you out as well.
Post some pics of the display too if you get a chance....front and back.
