I have an Openbravo POS workstation with a customer display pole. The pole is VFD-860. When I click on the products on the Sales page of Openbravo, the display responds but displays garbage:
When I turn the pole off and then on. I get this:
So it is not exactly broken. Com port is correct because otherwise it would not respond at all.
There is a configuration utility with the pole but it is either the wrong version (it says it's for VFD660_460 but the documentation at http://bit.ly/iUbmpB says that VFD860 uses software which installs itself to Start menu > Programs > VFD-660_460) or there is some other problem because whatever choice I make there, after clicking Accept I always get Device Time Out error (even though I see another garbage character appearing onto the display the second I click Accept).
How to fix that?
