I had some difficulties to enable the LCD on this HTPC. Just for reference a couple of
At first I followed the instructions as in: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/LCDproc
The fresh build imon driver didn’t work for me.
Then I stumbled upon: http://codeka.com/index.php, suggesting me patching the current lcdproc-0.5.2 package to use the imonlcd driver instead.
Update: in the meantime fully documented here. In short in my case:
sudo apt-get install lcdproc
Edit /etc/LCDd.conf and adjust:
For the imonlcd driver go do the imonlcd section and adjust:
You should also check the output-device. I had to change: Device=/dev/lcd0 to Device=/dev/lcd1
sudo /etc/init.d/LCDd stop; sudo /etc/init.d/LCDd start
You can edit /etc/LCD.conf and add a welcome and goodbye message:
# Hello message: each entry represents a display line; default: builtin
# GoodBye message: each entry represents a display line; default: builtin
GoodBye=”4 all the fish!”
Update of runlevels at boot with: (debian already does this during install)
:~#update-rc.d LCDd defaults
Next I added support for the volume knob to .lircrc:
begin prog = mythtv button = WheelCW repeat = 1 config = ] end begin prog = mythtv button = WheelCC repeat = 1 config = [ end
After I switched on support for LCD device in the settings of myth-frontend sometimes after boot connection to the LCD-server seems to get lost.
I found a solution to this by adding a static IP in /etc/network/interfaces instead of using an DHCP-address.
