LCD Smarties doesn't work with GX Typhoon MCE

Postby deciccoa » February 11th, 2016, 10:18 pm

I installed the display Matrix Orbital GX Typhoon MCE. I configured LCD smartie as "Screen files 2.jpg". When restart LCD Smartie I get the error message as file "Screen 1.jpg". Can someone help me?

I'm not convinced you will be able to use that display with LCD Smartie as it's a graphic VFD and Smartie is for Character LCD's.

Having said that I think you may have confusion with your drivers.

The Matrix Obital USB driver is for all USb displays except the GX series. Use the GX drivers.

Normally if a USb powered display is connected it creates a COM port and in Smartie you would set that as the startup parameer similar to the usage string shown.

The COM port number is not always 1 but you shuld be able to find it in device manager. It will be created when the usb display is plugged in.
