Re: omxplayer development

All the things that you have written works on XBMC. Becouse XBMC uses omxplayer, I suppose that it is already patched or it includes all features you asked.

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

When you run '/usr/local/bin/LCDd -c /usr/local/etc/LCDd.conf -d hd44780 -s true' you choose your config file using -c option. So lets focus on /usr/local/etc/LCDd.conf

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

Ok, lcdproc (LCDd) is a daemon for communication between linux and LCD. Normally it listens on 13666 port for commands and sends it to LCD. XBMC sends commands to it using 13666 port. If you can't connect to it, XBMC can't too. Try to add: # Hello message: each entry represents a display line; defau...

It looks that your lcdproc works fine, but is it? You said that you can see Welcome message forever. It should disapear after x second defined in LCDd.conf. In your case it is probably thanks for using lcdproc and linux # Hello message: each entry represents a display line; default: builtin Hello=" ...

Hi, In OpenELEC there are additional settings in 'Programs -> OpenELEC settings' when you can enable LCD and choose driver. Unforunatly I am not familiar with Raspbmc, but in OpenELEC this script generates file /storage/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/os.openelec.settings/settings.xml where is line: <sett...

Re: XBMC OpenELEC and LCD HD44780 via GPIO

I can't edit my post, so I add here: Check how much current your display needs! You may need external power supply or modified RPi if your display needs high current! Most of LCD displays needs very low current without backlight. If you want to connect backlight of your LCD, use resistor to limit cu...

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

You have to do from ssh:

Code: Select all

root ~ # touch /var/lock/xbmc.disabled
root ~ # killall -9 xbmc.bin
When you want xbmc back just delete /var/lock/xbmc.disabled - xbmc will respawn and you don't need to restart system.
