I have purchased six single line 7-segment i2c displays: www.adafruit.com/product/879
Are there any support in the code for splitting the two lines of the BTPD display into separate displays?
Or maybe another git branch covering this setup?

We currently only support the following PID display device: www.brewershardware.com/BCS-7-Segment-LE...D-Style-Display.html. Version 2.8 supports addressing each of the PID display's lines independently.

It wouldn't be too hard to add support for that segmented display, but we don't support it now. I can't guarantee we will add support for it but I can talk to mrshake about it see which way he wanted to move for that type of display. Worst case you could send a patch in.

Is it too late to cancel the adafruit order and order the brewers hardware one?

I'm afraid they are already mounted in my controller cabinet :-D
Ordered them when the BCS-7 were unavailable.
I could try looking into the code, but I'm not a hardcore programmer.
+1 for support for individual displays per line :-)

PID display has been around for like 5 years I think, the creator just resells through brewers hardware and for some reason marketing it for BCS, but it was designed for BrewTroller. I believe his handle was Voneida in the old repo, but I could be mis-remembering.
