How to configure VFD

Looks like it’s a DTB issue. Will look into it.

@DroiDMester @Bat123
Please try the DTBs from this zip.

Edit: These DTBs don’t work, scroll down for updated ones.

use the sm1_s905x3_4g_1gbit.dtb in attachment zip.
and CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2-nightly_20191219-Generic.img.gz
installed the openvfd addon and upload the X96MAX s905x2 vfd conf to /storage/.config dictionary.
X96MAX PLUS 4G/32G/1000M vfd can’t work yet. thank you again.

yes, now it works perfect!
no, the colon doesn’t blink, but I like it that way.
if you like and tell me what to change, I can try the right config for the working colon too. tested but still not working :frowning:


CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2-nightly_20191219-Generic.img.gz, DTB doesn’t work with x96max + gigabit lan port and wifi

this modified DTB works on gigabit LAN gets X96MAX + normal IP address, WIFI also worked after reboot

Ok, can you guys please try again with the DTBs from this zip?

Edit: Required DTB changes are in the nightly builds now.

Hi I need help for the vfd file for me tvbox is model V8 pro 905x3 - 4g

Thank you

Try this one with a DTB from the post above
tanix-tx5-pro-vfd.conf (1.2 KB)

Well, that means that it’s not working perfect, because it’s supposed to light up/blink.

it does not work V8 super

Post dmesg output, please.

thank you brother.
x96 max plus vfd working perfectly now.


Does the : (colon) light up or blink?

the display works perfectly (the colon flashes) And with this DTB, Gigabit LAN is perfect for the X96Max Plus

ok, you’re right :slight_smile:
but changing the chars was easy, I have no idea how to make the colon flash.
would you help me out there too? thank you!

hello this is the result of doing cat / sys / kernel / debug / gpio
in an x96 Air (4/32)
Would there be a possibility to obtain a valid vfd?

It’s the same as other x96 max devices already mentioned above.

I have tried several and none has worked for me. could you please tell me which one is right for s905x3?
