Resources for Gert VGA 666

OS configuration

Note that for the Gert VGA 666 to work correctly you will need SPI and I2C to be disabled.

These instructions have been specifically provided for Raspbian but should apply to the majority of OSs.

sudo nano /boot/config.txt

Add these lines at the bottom of the file

dtoverlay=vga666 enable_dpi_lcd=1 display_default_lcd=1

You also need to specify your screen resolution. After the lines you added above you will also have to then add one of the following configurations:

#For 1920x1080 60Hz
dpi_group=2
dpi_mode=82
#For 1280x1024 60Hz
dpi_group=2
dpi_mode=35
#For 1024x768 60Hz
dpi_group=2
dpi_mode=16
#For 800x600 60Hz
dpi_group=2
dpi_mode=9

If the resolution that you are looking for is not among these then you can check this link.
