Hello
I got some problems getting a lcd 16x2 5V to work with samplerbox.
First thing I did was putting the samplerbox 2 image on a sd card boots and works fine.
I tried different screens no succes I changed the pinout in the config files no succes.
At this point im not sure why this isnt working for me do I need a 3,3V screen?
Dont see anyone with this problem so far I got a 10k pot connected.
Im using a raspberry pi 2 model B do I need to run the adafruit lcd files first?
