Hi,

We have LVDS and HDMI display connected to imx6 board and both displays are showing mirrored contents.

But when i query , its always returning display count as 1.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DisplayManager manager = (DisplayManager) getSystemService(DISPLAY_SERVICE);
Display[] displays = manager.getDisplays(DisplayManager.DISPLAY_CATEGORY_PRESENTATION);
Log.w("Display", "Display No = " + displays.length);

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why the display count is not shown as 2,  since we have HDMI and LVDS connected ?

Hi,

I have confirmed it for you, that the default BSP can not support your above requirement. You want the HDMI and LVDS screen display different conten, here you need do BSP modify. I can send you the patch for i.MX6 Triple Display application. You can refer to and follow the document and patch. The files are large, here I share it with you bellow.

After enabling  - "Android Settings à Developer Options à Drawing à Simulate secondary displays" , the display count is incremented.

New screens are coming on the same display(HDMI) as overlay. We want the new screens to be shown in different display(LVDS).

Any suggestions on what to be done ?

Hi,

In the android BSP, it default support the dual display LVDS and HDMI. If the first display is LVDS, The HDMI as second display, the content on the HDMI screen is scale content from LVDS.
Have a great day,

I am able to successfully show different contents on both HDMI and LVDS screen.

But I am loosing the touch capability on HDMI while showing different contents and i need a mouse to continue work.

If the contents are same on both screens then this issue is not present.

 

As I have mentioned above , I was unable to apply one patch "root@ubuntu:/home/developer/myandroid/device/fsl-proprietary# git am 0001-Triple-Display.patch".

If this can cause the issue then could you please provide the  "fsl-hwc/hwcomposer_fsl.imx6.so".

Else please guide me on this issue.

 

Thanks,

Kiran
