I’m so close to doing a similar project, all the parts finally came.
My only issue is the touch screen digitiser doesn’t seem to work.
I connected into my windows 10 laptop and it just doesn’t recognise the touch screen or board.
The screen doesn’t come with drivers or instructions so I’m not sure if it’s the board or the digitiser itself. Something i will have to check and look into.
The screen itself is nice, clear and works well.
Now please remember this is my first time doing this.
I managed to install volumio and installed the touch screen plugin.
When the screen was connected I wasn’t getting anything from it, so I just read a few forums and copied a script to the config file just to get it working.
I didn’t actually know what I was doing, as im just learning as I go.
But simply I copied these lines.
hdmi_cvt=480 1920 60
To the config file and saved it.
It came up with a few errors but the screen came to life. It’s in portrait mode presently but happy I got this far.
Now I need help for the rest?! What do I do now guys?
I’d like to have it landscape mode but also have the ability to use the touch screen and control functions.
