It has been quite a while since I have done any sort of programming but I have ordered a kit from Amazon - SainSmart LCD Keypad Shield+ Arduino MEGA 2560 for Arduino UNO R3 Duemilanove Nano Robot
I know exactly what I want to do and theoretically I do not think it will be that hard to do but I am unsure what approach take.
Here is what I want to do:
I want to be able to get the LCD to display the “now playing” of two shoutcast servers and to display the number of listeners next to it
I currently already have a php script that gets the now playing and publishes it to twitter, would it be easier to get Arduino to display the php or connect to the server itself?
I am planning to control the Arduino by USB, does anyone have any ideas of any existing scripts that could help me with my project and how to approach it.
Any help would be appreciated
