Im using a 3.5" lcd screen LQ035NC111. I think it's the same screen used by kite. Well im not sure if it's a refresh rate issue.
how have you got it wired up.... (any chance of a look)
the screen that kite uses is the way forward (also if i mange to find an easy solution to the HDMI screen, that as well)
i'm surprised no one has come up with an attachable board for the dpi screen (a bit similar to what Helder did with the 2.4" in the mintyPi)
the dpi screen kite uses is alot crisper than the fuzzy composite screens everyone seems to be still using...
if there was an attachable board (which i think shouldnt be that difficult) it will soon become the screen of choice....
and also, this topic may not be the best place to get some help.... its RxBrad theme topic, your issue is with the screen
Yes this is the reason why I'm so curious to learn about this DPI mode on the rapsberry pi. I have tested it and i think it's the way to go. I know it uses a lot of gpio pins but we can always use the usb for other purposes like audio and controls. I've no experience on creating or designing PCBs but i think the backlight driver for this screen is easy to learn.
You can see how im wiring it at http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 780#p41308
. It's in 24-bit mode using 28 pins.
The 480x320 kedei hdmi screen is noticeably clearer and detailed(especially on text) though compared to the 320x240 lcd in DPI mode. Obviously because of the higher resolution and HDMI?. But it LAGS while the dpi screen is smooth. I prefer the dpi screen. Just imagine a 640x240 screen on dpi mode. It will surely blow the hdmi screen out.
I was actually almost finished with my kedei hdmi build and was very excited but while i was trimming the board edges it slipped and broke the ribbon cable.
So stupid of me. I just ordered another one and have to wait another 30 days. I have an extra hdmi screen with menu controls but has different dimensions and contruction.
