Very strange behavior for 4 digit display


#1

Hi,

I have firmware 1.2.2 and have pulled and reinstalled the latest grovepi release but i found the 4 digit display to behave very strangely. It is easier if you see the “stock” script in action (i only changed display = 6) https://vid.me/DtM8

I tried manually outputting simple numbers, scores etc. but it works in a very “fuzzy” way… any clue?

Update: what it works to me is individual digit and segment, but the rest for example:
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,12,59) = 12:
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,1,5) = 01:
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,1,5) = 01:0
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,1,5) = off
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,1,55) = 01:0
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,12,59) = 12:0
grovepi.fourDigit_score(display,11,11) = 11:1

Hey Pippi,
Thanks for posting the video and explaining the code. We’re going to look into it, we haven’t seen this problem before. I don’t have one of these displays right now, but we’ll order one from Seeed and try to test it out, see what’s going on with the code. It may be a few weeks until we can get back to you.

Sorry for the wait.

Hi Karan,

thanks for the follow up. I am actually using the display trough a simple function which splits any input number in 4 digits, as single digit works for me, so in case everyone else should be interested in this product, it is usable with some scripting.
