Hardware requirements

To use this plugin you need a graphical display with supported controller. It's even possible to redirect the output of the plugin to image files or to the framebuffer to drive e.g. TFT monitors.

Supported are the following controllers and compatibles

  • Hitachi HD61830
  • Samsung KS0108
  • Toshiba T6963
  • Epson SED1520
  • Epson SED1330
  • Noritake GU140X32F-7806
  • Noritake GU256X64-372

and with the extra library serdisplib

  • Optrex 323
  • PCD8544-based Nokia-Displays (e.g. in the Nokia 51xx)
  • Nokia 7110 display (controller: SED1565)

With the last controllers you can use displays from some old mobile phones with nearly zero costs.

Software requirements

  • serdisplib (optional, see above)

Installation

If your controller is supported through the serdisplib you have to install it

cd $SOURCEDIR
tar xvzf serdisplib-<VERSION>.tar.gz
cd serdisplib-<VERSION>
make
mkdir -p /usr/local/include/serdisplib
make install DRIVERLIB_PATH=/usr/local/lib DRIVERINCLUDE_PATH=/usr/local/include
ldconfig

Then VDR is compiled with e.g.

make VFAT=1 REMOTE=LIRC INCLUDE_SERDISPLIB=1 all plugins

In the vdr-graphlcd-contrib-<VERSION>.tgz file are several addons like bootsplash, scripts, etc.

Everything else is the same as described in plugin installation.

Configuration

At the end, the directory with the logos has to be copied to /etc/vdr/plugins

cp -r $SOURCEDIR/VDR/PLUGINS/graphlcd/graphlcd /etc/vdr/plugins

Parameter

Parameter (kurz) Parameter (lang) Beschreibung
-c CTR --contr=CTR LCD-Controller type
-p IOP --port=IOP IO port
-d DEV --device=DEV sets the parport device
-x SZX --sizex=SZX horizontal size in pixels
-y SZY --sizey=SZY vertical size in pixels
-z Z --zoom=Z double pixel size with Z=1 (works only on framebuffer device)
