      Do you mean you don't install HDMI adapter on LCD and raspberry pi?
      I find it doesn't connect with HDMI adapter, the LCD just show blue screen.
      What's more, Do you mean you have install two screen at the same time?
      Are you willing to send the more details to my email address: elaine@vership.com

    I have tried several times to install this to RuneAudio to no avail. It keeps crashing on the final step.

    I expand the filesystem to the full capacity of the card (16GB) and then when I install the actual driver I get this:

    Dear all,

    I bought this screen but have a few very stupid questions which I cannot seem to read anywhere:
    - is it possible to run the screen as a second display on a computer?
    - is it possible to run it without a raspberry pi?

    Thank you in advance!
    Tom
