I have a RPI4 that has a Pimoroni Hyperpixel 4, and its running PIHOLE in which the display is a FULLSCREEN TERMINAL window that runs stats…
Im not knowledgeable in this subject so I found the below info and did it to no avail… It I guess only works on a regular PITFT…
Below is the CODE to BLANK the screen ‘after hours’ but again it is for the original PI TFT…
Does anyone know how I can change a setting and redo this to work w/ a hyperpixel screen ? Links and code below… thanks !
SCROLL DOWN to TURN OFF THE PITFT at NIGHT
Turn off the PiTFT at Night
The PiTFT is bright and doesn’t need to be powered-on at night, so let’s put it to sleep until we wake up.
Edit cron as root:
- sudo crontab -e
Select nano as an editor by pressing the 2 key.
Scroll beneath the commented text (#) and enter the following:
Turn off the PiTFT+ at midnight
- 00 00 * * * sh -c ‘echo “0” > /sys/class/backlight/soc:backlight/brightness’
Turn on the PiTFT+ at 8:00 am
- 00 08 * * * sh -c ‘echo “1” > /sys/class/backlight/soc:backlight/brightness’
Save ( control+O ) the configuration and exit ( control+X ) nano to be brought back to the terminal.
Reboot the Pi to apply the new changes by running:
- sudo reboot
