Hi guys,

I have bought one of "Ricavision VFD" display connectable via USB but i am
not able to playing with it under Linux.
I found that this VFD module is designed for Win MCE (probably only?).
After connecting +5V to the modul, VFD shows clock in format hh:mm:ss.

Because Ricavision company is gone, I have no support nor full module name.
On module board is text: "CWT_7046 V08".
Display controller chip is brushed so I can not read its part number.

You can see product image here:

After connecting I can see that two new USB device were detected ...

05e3:0608 and 13ec:0030

... but no USB-serial device was created.

Is there anybody who knows this VFD module and know how to make it work under
Linux?

Thank you very much for your help
