Here are the full steps I have done:
I ran "\curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash", During this process it did ask if it would like me to run the script that would force audio through HDMI, and I selected yes.
then I did the instructions for "Install for Python 3" which are:
sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-dev
sudo pip3 install unicornhat
I then followed the instructions for "Install from Github clone".
This is when i tried to run examples and ran into problems. Looking online I saw that people had better results running it headless, so I unhooked my HDMI and used VNC to login and run the example scripts, still had the same results. I then installed a fresh version of Raspbian from their website, and followed the same instructions above, with the same results.
I don't believe I have run the "curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/audio | bash" command. I will try this when I get home from work. Any other suggestions would be great. Thank you all for your help!
