I have a Raspberry Pi 3 (RPi3) with LE8.0.1 and I'm trying to hook up a Winstar EH1602 display. (16x2 HD44780)
So far I've installed LCDproc from the LE addon repository, edited the config files to use HD44780 and Raspberrypi 4bit GPIO to the best of my abilities but it's not working.
The display lights up but is only displaying gibberish. A completely random set of letters, graphics and symbols. It doesn't change if I move around in the kodi menus. It only changes when I initiate a shutdown. I suspect it initially displays a welcome message?
Is there anyone that can help me? What should I do? I'm used to computers and electronics but a n0ob with RPi, LE and Linux.
Instead of me just posting random code snippets, just tell me what you need in order to help me and I'll do my best to make it happen.
For some reason, when I turned on the Pi a minute ago it's suddenly showing the welcome message. So far only the welcome message though...
