After attempting this a few times to no avail, I decided to buy another board and I am having the exact same issue with that board suspecting it was possible that I’d gotten a doa board. I am having the exact same issue with the new Ubercorn board.
Initially, I was trying with a raspberry pi zero w. I have since switched to one of my ras pi 3’s that I have laying around that I know for sure that the gpio pins work well on.
I am making sure to use
sudo python3 ./this_program.pyto run the programs and all the text that is supposed to display is on.
I have verified SPI is enabled
I have forced the Audio to be HDMI only
I am not sure what my problem could be. Please let me know what additional details I can provide to get some assistance.
