I was just curious if anybody has tried to connect a display to a USB 2 LPT converter like the ones available at CableMax.

Please let me know if this is successful or not before I purchase.

If nobody has tried yet I will but would like to know if a attempt has already been made.

USB to LPT adapters often create a "software" LPT port that is only usable for printers and I don't remember anyone reporting success using these with parallel lcds. So my guess would be they won't work but who knows maybe they would...

I know this is an old post but it is fairly important.

If you have access to a cypress programmer and know someone that can make smd pcbs then you can make a fully emulated usb->parallel port adapter. Check it out here.

Having used this firmware (usb2lpt2.iic) with one if these boards http://3layer.eu/development.html I could hardly recommend this converter.
In one test, using WinIO/LPT and a KS based 128x64 LCD (with CMD/Data delays removed) I could achieve around 300fps but with the above converter this dropped to around 35fps, and in some cases ~2fps

Bastelecke's converter is fine if all you're doing is basic printing or JTAG/PIC programming but with anything requiring a stream of data then forget it.
