At First Thank you for this input.... We still happy for every new idea and inspiration !
We talk about all this stuff some time ago.....
Some users request for a LED System over Max7219.... Some others for a shift register... Or another System like this.
I know via Open source a guy startup to build some things but i think he stop already and not come back. For Sebastian it´s difficult to implement all these things with his verry limmited time.
Summary Mobiflight got ONE big argument at the moment..... It have no limit for used Arduinos. ( Maby Windows Limit of 128 but nobody reach this) .... So even if you need 1000 Switches and 1000 Outputs..... That can be done with maby 40-45 Arduinos..... That means... A System to have 16 Switches on One Pin is maby cool but not needed absolutly.... cause you simply can use more Arduinos and get same result.... With a price of below 10$ for a MEGA that is not a problem at all.
Information is checked..... Support for Matrix Input/Output is on wish list ! Maby Sebastian still work on it !
