      Hi Chris,

      > Because the tubes are multiplexed then I only need two decimal point switches to control all 8 DP's. My previous DP switch actually shorted them to ground and when not shorted the power was supplied via a pull up resistor. Crude but good enough for prototyping. Now i just need to add two pnp's and a couple of resistors to make it less power hungry. It's only 4 transistors in total for all 8 DP's

      Stupid me. Had forgotten that the tubes are multiplexed.


      > At the moment I have not used the blanking input of the HV5812 but as long as it can be switched quickly enough I have plans to use that for dimming. i know what yiou mean about thebedroom situation...bright tubes look great in the daytime but make yiou feel like you're living in times square other times.

      Sure. If a software solution doesn't work there is always the possibility of a simple hardware-mod.
