    There is a DSI connector on Mercury inside the box. But we have made no provision nor do we support the use of that connector. You would have to sneak the FPC out the front in order to use it.

    most software releases will output to the HDMI. I know that with Volumio and moode if you enable the touchscreen option that will cause the HDMI to follow the screen output.

    @Smody,

    In the past I found a thread at Volumio forum related to an amazing implementation of a Pi2AES with a display 8.8inch 1920x480.

    In this thread that are a lot of hints to integrate the display. The thread creator, lausiv, is very helpful.


    I decided to follow this path and I used the same display with good results. I know that it can be used for peppy meter also in the Volumio environment.

    Interesting threads to consider also:

    https://community.volumio.org/t/plugin-now-playing/50318/326

    See below the display that I used.

    The output is via Rpi4 HDMI output.

    See the picture below of the display support that I developed. It fits well considering the particularities of my rack.

    I know that you are interested in Mercury, but I consider that you can use the HDMI outuput with the same results, if you are using the Volumio.

    Best Regards,
