    The driver is attached to the post. What's the other problem. I have replaced my HD44780.so and everything is fine. I run a raspberry pi 3 using the lcd from the GPIO pins. I can post my LCDd.conf. I initially had a 7.x system running fine, update to 8.0 and got the not a raspberry pi, the patch has fixed that and my lcd is running.


    it finally worked. thank you.

    Hi
    with special thanks to LibreELEC team for their continuous efforts to produce ver 8
    unfortunately still in this ver my LCD (hd44780) does not work again.
    I have RPi3 and LCD hd44780 connected together through GPIO. I have done all wiring according LCD-Display HD44780 20×4 under Openelec and Kodi(XBMC) at the Raspberry Pi – Michael Diesterhöft
    everything worked great until v7.90.006. but after v7.90.007 till now I could not run the LCD.
    I installed sevices.xbmc lcdproc 2.6.0 and sevices.LCDproc 8.1.102 and set driver to hd44780.
    I also modified LCDd.conf inside directories:
    ~/.kodi/addons/service.lcdd/config
    and
    ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.lcdd
    here is my LCDd.conf:

    I replaced the driver with my old one but i got same error except the line (check_board_rev:....)

    and as it looks it does not work!

    Hi, I updated my RPi3 from LibreELEC 006 to 009. My LCD stopped working. Maybe I have to do something with my config files. Is here someone to guide me step by step what I should do to solve the problem? (I have installed LCDproc from LibreELEC repo and set Driver correctly)


    Sorry Ion, my fault. Actually no, I dont use USB DAC. I have raspberry Pi.

    Hi, I updated my LibreELEC to 008 but LCD does not work yet.
    I installed LCDproc from LibreELEC repo and set the driver to hd44780 but nothing happened.
    Does anyone know how to fix it?
    Back to 006 for now! :(

    Hi, I run LibreELEC on RPi3. Everything works great.But when I open a live TV stream I cannot see the amount of the signal and SNR bars in codec info view for about 10 or 15 min.Then suddenly it fixes the problem automatically. Why? Would it be possible to display Signal and SNR from the beginning?

    Hi, I updated LibreELEC to v7.90.007 on my RPi3 device but suddenly LCDproc stopped working! In LibreELEC settings Service panel there is no LCD drivers names in the dropdown list.
