Before you post the diagram, just a few questions:

- Is the Optrex module just a plain old HD44780?
- Does your wiring add anything new?
- If not, how different is your wiring?

If the answer to the second question is no, then I don't think that we
should support it. There are enough variants to make this software a pain to
maintain. If the Optrex module is just another HD44780 then Optrex must have
a data sheet that describes how their pins map to the standard HD44780 pins
- there's probably little value in repeating this information.

Just my 2 cents worth.
