Can this be done? I just went to the colordmd for Tron and think the Blue Stern DMD would look great on T2. Thanks for any advice!

No. The DMD from Tron is a low voltage (5v) display. The T2 requires a high voltage display.

How about this version of the question:
I have put a color dmd in my LOTR. Could I use that dmd in my T2?

Isn't that the opposite of what they want?

Yes. If your LOTR DMD was the old plasma type display, yes.

Yes, you can. But you'll need to cobble together a 5V power connector for the display.
I have attempted to use a Stern LED from an IMVE with a WhiteStar MPU. It didn't work quite right. Tough to explain but whenever there was a lit pixel in a column, the lower row pixel lit also. I haven't researched this yet.
