Just installed a Honeywell T6 Pro with my new carrier HVAC system. Would love some functionality on my MM.

RE: Where do you find LCD's that are larger than 7"?
I just gutted a laptop and pulled a 15.6 monitor out. I ordered an HDMI LCD Controller for $26ish from Amazon and it work wonderfully. It’s light, bright and the controller came with buttons to control the screen.
There are some that are cheaper. I just didn’t want to chance that it wouldn’t work with my laptop lcd model. I searched and bought based on the part model.
I literally just did the same thing. Took apart an old laptop and ordered a controller board on Ebay. I see people giving away old monitors all the time on Craigslist as well, just keep your eyes peeled.
I was finally able to get this working on my MM, but having trouble centering the header. This module is in my center portion and all other modules have centered headers. When I first got it working everything was centered and I aligned the text below it left. I jumped into the css and the .js but was unable to figure it out.
RE: MMM-MyWastePickup (Toronto waste collection schedule)
Thanks for writing this one, it will be a big help for my girlfriend who just moved in. It took quite some time trying to figure out the code and then tailor it to my local schedule but it works and looks great. Toronto published their 2019 schedule online but the titles had spaces and the year format was wrong for some days.
Wednesday = Paper recycling and big household pickup
Thursday = Garbage pickup
Monday = Garbage and glass/plastic recycling
Such a neat module - thanks again.
RE: NYC MTA Subway Times
I too would love something like the MTA has in some of the stations now (see pic below). I plan to make a magic mirror for our office and determine everyone’s subway line so that when they are leaving or planning to leave they can see when the next 2 trains are in either direction
Even just the basic service status for the subways would be helpful too if the data can’t be pulled off above.
I also finally got the MMM-MTA to work for me last night. Couldn’t figure out why nothing would show and then all of a sudden alert popped up that the Babylon eastbound train to Penn was running two minutes late. That will be going on my home mirror and work mirror.
Habit Tracker on Magic Mirror
Loving this site and starting my build.
I have a couple of different applications to use this mirror, how it started was the need for a home mirror.
Another will be a simple alarm clock next to my bed with no mirror in the Pi-Top Ceed case with 14" screen.
Another will be a desktop Pi-Top Ceed with no mirror again displaying things that I would use for work. Train schedules, weather, calendar (both weekly and monthly) and To Do’s. I also keep a monthly habit tracker on paper now and was wondering if anyone has made a sort of habit tracker. There is an app I have seen around called “Way of Life” which would look cool on the mirror etc.
Thanks everyone for the help - wish I could code this, but right now I am just a copy and paste guy for my project.
