N2 OLED Information Display

Post by rooted » Sat May 02, 2020 7:43 pm

I ran across a nice add-on by roidy for CoreELEC that allows you to add a little OLED display to the N2 which shows a clock when not playing and statistics when playing content.

It's a bit configurable and supports a few different displays, I have a 128x32 and a 128x64 and they both work great and were around $5 shipped each on eBay.

I haven't decided which I want to use but I included a picture of the 128x64 in action.

I have been using this display in CoreElec for many months (since I have Odroid N2). This small 128x32 because it fits perfectly under the housing:

With 5m it is hardly legible (although the time is perfectly visible)

Could you take a picture of the inside, my female headers are too long I believe.

Can either of you provide specs of the OLED panels that you think are best?

I bought these two, decide on the form factor and either will work.

Only the 128x32 will fit inside the factory case if that makes your decision easier.

If you purchased from one of the links I gave they don't give you a tracking number but both arrived in about 3 days.

Facing the front of the N2 that diagram is upside down so you know.

So your wires will connect like this:
