So as Reciva has now closed, the Logik IR100 and other Reciva based radios will no longer work without installing Sharpfin and modifying it. Great, but I want a newer system with more hardware features and a powerful CPU… Step up Raspberry Pi.
However, as I am sure a lot of you have noticed – The LCD doesn’t conform to the HD44780U wiring scheme. Alas… I think I may have at least worked that one out and managed to get it working with an I2C backpack, though right now the backlight doesn’t seem to turn on.
Pinout for the display vs HD44780U
