Hold on. As far as I know the touch panel doesn't work for xbmc. Also the instructions to reverse the cursor are for x11, nothing to do with xbmc?

Hi, Texi.

Touching the TFT, I get the arrow of XBMC. It moves correctly going left/right, but is inverted when going up/down...

I still need help to auto-start fbcp with raspbmc...

I would like to understand how the spi & gpio interface works directly with the RPi. I am reading the data sheet for the display and wondering if anyone has any initial information to use the display.

For those of us who really want this, but are equally wary about installing patched kernels, can anyone offer any reassurances that everything is benign?

i see a few people have made internet radio displays out of these screens, has anyone come up with a music player to play music off a hdd or usb stick say a cut down version of xbmc? many thanks in advance.

You could use omxplayer. If GUI customisation was important then write a Python script to wrap around it and make an OS call to the player.

There's a tutorial for Pandora on learn.adafruit.com, but the service no longer works in the UK

Dear All and esp Texy

I have got the screen up and running, done the tests and calibration. I did not have the reverse Y problem and I can run the GUI.
It took me about 3 hours and I did it all using SSH.
After up and running plugged in USB keyboard and mouse.
Instructions worked correctly.

Thanks and a Happy New Year to you all.

Tom

The main point of my project was to stream my ripped CDs from a server at home but it will also work with locally stored music. The link has all the main code and a build script but it is not a how-to by any means.

Great work shown here Texy :)
I have a touchscreen TFT lying around from a broken navigation device, based on ILI9320 chip - same as the HY28 uses. Plus, I have some RPi's here, so I would like to see if I can connect the screen to one of my RPi's. Can you please share the wiring diagram as to how the HY28 connects to the GPIO pins? The SPI part is a matter of connecting the dots I guess, but 3 more GPIO lines are being used and I have no idea to which functional pins on the hy28 they connect.
It would be of great great help if you would share the wiring diagram with me, Texy.
Thank you in advance!

There is no power hardware switch, however the display backlight can be switched on and off via
Backlight ON
echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/fb_ili9320/bl_power

Backlight OFF
echo 1 > /sys/class/backlight/fb_ili9320/bl_power

Good day Texy. I was planning to use my pi to download applications. since my internet connection is unstable and just a little bit faster than dial-up, I have to have the pi running almost all the time. with the attached 2.8" tft, i can bring the pi anywhere where the wireless internet is stable. I think i cannot switch off the display backlight while the downloader is running. I am booting directly to the console (desktop was removed). thanks in advance.

Hi Texi,
I would like to know, can I order the PCB separately, without the tft module? How do I do this? How many can I order in one batch?
Regards,
Robert

Hi,
yes I have plenty of pcb's available - please pm me for details, but note - the HY28A has been discontinued, so are you sure you have the HY28A display?

Oh no. Are you lining up another model? (Of course I understand if you can't answer that.)

Hi Texy,

I have followed your instructions to the letter and have the screen working. the only issue is that the output seems to be mirrored.

i can see init options for rotate which work when applied but none for flip.
i have tried to apply flip options to the boot scripts, they only apply tho the hdmi or composite and in the xsserver options to no avail.

please help me with this on since i'm out of suggestions on this.

i'm using the latest (2014-01-09) of Rasbien.

Thanks in advance - Tim Colley

Hi,
this is because you are using the wrong instructions (and posting in the incorrect thread :) ).
You have a v2 board, the instructions are here :

Hi,
you are also posting in the wrong thread - this one has nothing to do with the tinylcd35 module.
However, this thread may help you :

Is the Adafruit PiTFT the same LCD as yours Texy? I noticed a hat tip to the Notro drivers.

Hi,
you mean TFT? ;)
I,m not 100% sure, but it may well use the same screen.
Of course mine is cheaper and supplied fully assembled and tested, but no harm in competition :)

Sorry. I've got LCDs on the brain (understandable I guess. Hold on. TFTs are LCDs aren't they?).

I was just wondering if their GUI would work with the screen I got from you. I have a blog post 3/4 written, just need to do photos and video.

I don't know if you 'do' twitter, but I did this just before Christmas https://twitter.com/RasPiTV/status/4151 ... 48/photo/1
