PyPortal stand

by rayhayes on Wed Nov 24, 2021 12:16 am

So I bought these assuming that they would work together but I'm having a hell of a time getting the top on and it seems to me that the PyPortal Titano is slightly different than the board pictured in the instructions and the three connectors on the right (top as pictured) are in a different position. Am I losing it?

Sorry for the confusion. There are three different PyPortal products:


The PID 4146 is only for the original PyPortal product.

Thanks. Yes that could have been a bit clearer. It's fixable though with a bit of plastic removal.

I agree. I've sent word to have the product page updated. The Titano and Pynt came out after that stand and the original PyPortal came out, so it was probably never re-visited.

Sorry again for the confusion.

I worked through the original NASA demo from learn.adafruit.com/pyportal-nasa-image-viewer/code-pyportal-nasa-image-viewer which I'm guessing was also designed for the original. It does work though it's offset and smaller than it could be. I don't think the code is provided or perhaps it's obfuscated. Is there any way that you could release a PyPortal Titano version of it?

The screen resolutions for the PyPortals are:
  • Original and Pynt = 240 x 320
  • Titano = 320 x 480

The guide was written for the 240 x 320 screen sizes. So it has a lot of hardwired values for that. Hopefully it'll work to just update those. For example, try changing
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
                    image_resize=(320, 240),

to this:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
                    image_resize=(480, 320),

and see if that at least gets you a full screen image. The text placements may need to additional tweaking.

The code listing is on this page:
https://learn.adafruit.com/pyportal-nas ... age-viewer
and is also available here:
https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Le ... SA/code.py

It does make the image larger but the position stays the same. I'll see if there's a place in the code where it's set but I don't remember seeing it.

Is it possible the code for the include module that does the display is online in git somewhere as Python?

I'm getting back to trying to get this to work. I'm running all the default code but I'm seeing the same behavior as this: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=173296&p=845113&hilit=pyportal+image+backwards#p845113

Everything is backwards. Was a solution found eventually to this issue?

Sorry for the delay. Wanted to update the Titano guide to add a self test UF2. It's now added and available here:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pyp ... duino-test

Try that and see if the display still looks odd.

To use: download PyPortal_Titano_Self_Test.UF2 (green button). Double click reset on Titano to get BOOT folder. Drag UF2 to BOOT folder. That's it!

You don't need Arduino installed.
