Please help OrigenAE VFD-110 - Hybridtech - 2011-02-13 12:00

Hi can someone please help me get my VFD-110 to auto start iv followed the following tutorial: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=47241 but i need a startup script.

Iv tried adding this: /usr/local/sbin/LCDd -c /etc/LCDd.conf
to the .XSession file but it dissapears on reboot.

But everything works when i run: /usr/local/sbin/LCDd -c /etc/LCDd.conf
in terminal manualy.

This is really frustrating. Sad

you could try adding "/usr/local/sbin/LCDd -c /etc/LCDd.conf" to "/etc/rc.local"

Still no good. I think this is going to need a startup script.

What OS are you running? If Ubuntu then why not just install lcdproc and let it run as a service? I'm using an older Origin case and that's what I do.

1. install lcdproc: sudo apt-get install lcdproc
2. change the name of the driver in LCDd.conf to irtrans: Driver=irtrans
2a. I also set ServerScreen=no in my LCDd.conf
3. Ensure that LCD is enabled for XBMC: advancedsettings.xml

<haslcd>true</haslcd>

4. Reboot

That should do it.
