Raspberry Pi with Raspian and ODROID-VU7 for home automation

Unread postby MoS12 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:24 pm

Hello all,

I bought a VU7 to use it for my new built home as a control panel in combination with domoticz on a RaspberryPi.
Now some unexpected problems appeared.

1) I don't have full screen and it's not possible to adjust the resolution to a better value (see attached picture).

2) Touch screen does not work.

Please help me!

Best Regards
MoS12

1. Edit "config.txt" to enable 800x480 mode instead of default 640x480 mode with DVI mode something like this.
Code: Select all
# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (here we are forcing 800x480!)
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=1
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_cvt=800 480 60 6 0 0 0
 
max_usb_current=1
   
# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes
#hdmi_drive=2


2. You need to port the touch screen driver.
One user successfully ported the Vu5 touchscreen driver to the RPi Kernel. Note that the Vu5 has the same touch screen controller in the Vu7.

Thank you for your answer. I will try but it will cost me some time. I will report in a few days...
