Will this work using the parallel port of a computer? I'm JUST STARTING to experiment with a 32 bit version of Rivendell, and this would be a great project. 

No, but if you’ve got an old sound card with a 15 pin ‘joystick’ port on it (common before USB came along), that can be used to get 4 GPIs in a pinch.  See the ‘GPIO.txt’ file in the Rivendell docs directory for details.  Likewise, the handshake lines on a COM port can be used.  See the ‘Modem Lines’ section of ‘SWITCHERS.txt’.

Cheers!
