I've looked into this hoping to use my video HTPC as an audio server and I wasn't able to find a suitable solution. I'm still using an iPod for my audio server, which isn't a bad solution.

Sorry to resuscitate an old thread but I have exactly the same (as yet unanswered) question:
Has anybody gotten a VFD to browse and play music files without using the main display?
It would be great if I could get my HTPC to work like a Squeezebox + NAS without having to bring my projector into the situation. Thanks in advance for any info or links.

I use my VFD (iMon) to browse though my music library, including playlists, and control playback with MediaPortal without having to switch the TV on.
