LCD Smartie Setup !!TOP!!
The i2c backpack library used by the smartie sketch uses an assumed pin wiring that is different from your backpack.Fix the smatie sketch code to use the first i2c library you had that allows configuration which works with your backpack.
LCD Smartie Setup
Given that the startup banner is displaying correctly, it not longer appears to be an Arduino or lcd library issue.It could be a smartie configuration issue, like baud rate or smartie device type.
Hi. I am trying to run a sketch of post 7 to arduino micro. Lcd smartie gives me garbage on the display. The same code for arduino nano works correctly. What may be the problem? I used the library newliquidcrystal. The file LCD.h "void command (uint8_t value);" I made a non-private and compiled without problem.
Lcdsmartie supports LCD/VFD's with a Hitachi HD44780 Controller, a Matrix Orbital Serial/USB LCD, Crystalfontz Serial/USB LCD, Seetron Serial LCD/VFD, IRTrans driven VFDs, SoundGraph iMON VFDs, Futaba VFDs, Pertelian LCDs, VL System L.I.S VFDs, IEE Inc. VFDs, and PalmOS devices (when used with PalmOrb).
If you follow the Kodi Forum post (where LCDSmartie is making it to LCD Display):1. Download LCD Smartie latest beta from 2a. If you have iMON LCD display, Download iMON display driver modified_iMON_OEM_LCD_dll.zip from =02b. If you have VFD from an Antec Fusion (with the 4-pin FDD power connector that doesn't work with iMON manager) you don't need to download the driver file (Thanks nedge2k )4. Unzip LCD Smartie wherever you want5. Unzip iMON_OEM_LCD.dll to \lcd_smartie_v22.214.171.124 Beta\displays\6. Unzip XBMC4LCDSmartie.dll and Newtonsoft.Json.dll to \lcd_smartie_v126.96.36.199 Beta\plugins\7. Copy SG_VFDU.dll from \SOUNDGRAPH\iMON\ folder to \lcd_smartie_v188.8.131.52 Beta\ and rename it to SG_VFD.dllSetting up:1. In iMON manager activate the display plugin mode and set the frontview start up to always and disable everything in automode tab. Also disable the date in clock section. I noticed that if date is displayed, the iMON manager steals the display from LCD Smartie quite often.4a. Start LCD Smartie and go to setup. In display settings click the plugin tab and if your display is LCD select iMON_OEM_LCD.4b. If you have the VFD from an Antec Fusion (with the 4-pin FDD power connector that doesn't work with iMON manager), you can use imond.dll (Thanks nedge2k )5. In screen tab select the LCD size. Modes 1x16 and 2x16 work. I prefer 1x16 because then the text has better readability from distance but if you like two lines of information then select 2x16.6. Restart LCD Smartie and adjust display contrast to desired level.7. Now you should see text in your display send by LCD Smartie.
The Genovation MiniTerm 910 is a fully programmable LCD mini-terminal. The MiniTerm 910 supports simple and complex re-programmable key macros and system configurations. Includes detachable USB cable for easy setup. DB9KIT is available separately for Serial connection and different applications. It also has multiple card/tag reader options for fast and easy data transactions.
The difference between the two types of OUT are that 1-3 draw current directly from the USB port (suitable for fans) and 4-5 draw current through the chip (suitable for LEDs). You can make any of them how you want (high or low current draw). If you use the transistor setup it will allow more current draw. Also note that the GND and VCC are kinda backwards between the two types.
Or you can use a custom driver I made for LCD Smartie. The custom driver has slightly better performance, a little more power, and you don't need to know the COM port. It is able to find which COM port it is on it's own (which is really nice if you plug the LCD into different USB ports and the COM port changes). To install just download the DLL file and put it in the "displays" folder of LCD Smartie, then restart LCD Smartie and select the USB2LCD driver in the setup.
If this happens before you install the firmware it is most likely that the bootloader was not installed properly or part of the circuit is not setup correctly. The components that can cause this are C4, X1/C1/C2, C3/C5, C6, or R1. Other components are not required before the firmware is installed.
The Genovation MiniTerm 908 is a fully programmable LCD mini-terminal. The Mini Data Terminal supports simple and complex re-programmable key macros and system configurations. Includes detachable USB cable for easy setup. DB9KIT is available separately for Serial connection and different applications. The 908 has multiple card/tag reader options for fast and easy data transactions. The LCD can also be used as a customer display (pole display).
Once this is done, click OK on the LCDSmartie setup dialog. You should now see some text from LCDSmartie (a scrolling LCDSmartie logo, and possibly some other information) appear on the PRO-LCD-B screen on your PC!
Would be awesome if you could do it w/ lcd smartie. I have an lcd set up to my computer at work so I can display song info w/o having my monitor on. I also have a remote control for winamp too so I can pause my music when the boss walks by.
In the setup screen under Screen settings in the long text box put, an lowercase a followed (no spaces anywhere) by one of those $dll(SB,#,#,0) entries, follow that with the subsequent lowercase letter, in this example its a b so a chain of these would look like:
At the moment I'm eyeball deep, cross-referencing 7 different knowledge articles on: 3 LinuxCNC configuration guides, 2 BeagleBone Black hardware reference manuals, and 1 MachineKit setup example and finally a spreadsheet regarding one of several PRU LinuxCNC-HAL driver modules on a microcontroller platform I just received 2 weeks ago.
Next we initialize the IR Remote library and setup a variable that will contain the last/current IR code received. Lastly the lastPress variable is setup to contain the time of the last IR code received, this is used to create a delay for sending the next keypress code over the serial connection.
First serial is enabled at 9600 baud, next the IR receiver is enabled, and we call the vfdInitialize() function to setup the VFD screen. Lastly we call the vfdDisplayScreen() function to display the first screen on the VFD.
For the uninitiated the loop() function gets called over and over again once the setup() function finishes as long as the microcontroller has power or is otherwise uninterrupted. Using non-blocking functions in this loop allows us to create a sort of multi-tasking on a device that is single threaded. Two functions are called here vfdProcess() which processes any pending commands for the screen, and remoteProcess() which processes any pending IR codes. Other non-blocking functions can be placed here making it possible to integrate other sketches with the VFD and IR functions.
