No use in wasting a lot of BX24 pins, so get a serial-LCD. They use one
line RS232, but you would need a level translator, unless can find a
serial-LCD that accepts 0-5v input.

Checking out that particular device, I see it works with either RS232
or logic levels for input. It is also cheaper than most other serial
LCDs. I bought one recently for $54, which has a MAX232 cheap, and
requires RS232 levels only. Ones that will work either way, logic or
RS232 levels, use either just a series R, or better, an NPN inverter.
ok. I am more familiar with RS232, I was thinking cheap by hacking a
display from existing hardware, I am computer support for a facility
with 1000+ user and from time to time get the chance to part out some
server machines, the 14 pin display was from Compaq ML370 I believe.
The price of the BasicX module doesnt even warrant messing with the one
I have now.
Thanks for the advice, really appreciated
