Background:

I bought a 2*16 LCD display that uses USB as a connection.  I now want to use this on my Raspberry PI running OpenELEC.

Success 1 – Working display:

  • cp /etc/LCDd.conf /storage/.config/
  • vi /storage/.config/LCDd.conf

Driver=hd44780
Driver=hd44780

## Hitachi HD44780 driver ##
[hd44780]
ConnectionType=lcd2usb
Contrast=1000
Brightness=300
Keypad=no
Backlight=no
Size=16×2

This will give you display with a Welcome message.

Success 2 – XBMC Service Installation:

  • System/Openelec/Services
  • Enable LCDSupport (hd44780)
  • System/Add-Ons/Services
  • Add: XBMC LCDproc
  • Change your settings (scroll speed etc) as per your needs.
