A couple of questions

Post by Krauts In Space » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:54 am

What's the power consumption of the display witch switched off DM42? Does it safe power, if possible, to bring the display into "off-mode"?

IR port: is it possible to send any self definded codes? I'm thinking of a DM42 TV remote control.

Zero. It's one of Sharp's "memory" LCDs. It is switched off altogether when the DM42 is powered down.

The "static consumption" figure given on that page is while still switched on.

Sorry, that's not possible.
Not SwissMicros staff, just an enthusiast.
