I have a pico Explorer and am running the demo programs for the display, demo.py, rainbow.py & thermometer.py. The pico has had the pimoroni version of MicroPython added to it (downloaded yesterday 28-Feb-21).
When running any of the programs the display area does not fill the screen, there are bands to the left, right and top of the display area that are unused. I’d estimate that only 50% of the screen area is used.
Test code added to demo.py shows width and height are 240 and 135. Is this correct? How can the whole screen be used (it looks square so I’d expect width to = height).
Orienting the Explorer board with the pico top left, the screen bottom right with connections at the bottom, the display is shown rotated 90degrees clockwise (would require a 90degrees counter-clockwise rotation to be orientated to match the explorer). Is this expected?
