LCDproc for Audiophonics OLED Display

  • Hi,


    I have installed LE on a Audiophonics RaspDAC and I love it! But I could not manage to get the nice display to work (Yes, I have read many posts, installed both addons, carefully edited the lcd.conf etc....). Then I installed Raspbian (Max2Play!) and compiled and installed LCDproc from Github (following those instructions) and, voila, it worked wonderful!


    My conclusion is that at Github there is a newer version of the LCDproc than LE has. And when I look at the change-log I see some enhancements concerning the WINSTAR WEH001602 ....


    So may I ask if it is possible to get an updated LCD add-on from LE for Raspberry 3 (or at least the hd44780.so) ?


    Thanks,

    BJ

    Edited once, last by Johannes ().

  • I had moved the LCDd, the hd44780.so and the LCDd.conf from my compilation to LE and it worked fine.

    Then I deinstalled and deleted anything with the Add-on, install from zip and adjusted the LCDd.conf in "storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.lcdd" and switched in LE to "hd44780" but no success.


  • 1. For me it is ok at the moment. If this is not a generic request we can wait till next official release of LCDproc/LE and then make an safer test ?

    2. I did no cross-compile but native on Pi3 with Beta of Max2Play what I think is a Raspbian/Stretch based distribution. I followed exactly the instructions from "fengalin", that means simply clone the original git repo of LCDproc and "make" without all but hd44780. It is a guide for OSMC. I am thinking about doing the same in Pi3 with OSMC but this will produce probably the same positive result. May be I should set up a LE - Cross Compile environment under VMware ? Well, I didn't do that for a while.....?

  • Hi,


    unfortunately I see that the LCDproc has not been updated now in 9.0.2.

    Can someone initiate that with some new revision this is included ?


    Thanks,
