Here are a few hints:
* Check if the display is connected to the port with address 0x378
(those kinds of errors happen ;-))) ?
* Try to set the ReportLevel to 5 and post what the server says

Unfortunately the sed1520 driver has not seen very much attention lately.
This is mostly because of the lack of the hardware.

If you get the driver to work with your display I will gladly include the
patches into LCDproc.

Thanks in advance
