Ok, got now playing song info displaying below the clock in the epaper and removed the redundant tmux clock.

Even if this is all i do I'm pretty happy with it. For only $13 and putting an unused pi back to good use I'd say it was worthwhile. I may try to wire up a couple buttons for pause/play and next at some point too.

@kelbot Nice! Where did you get your display? Sounds like a great deal.


They have a bunch of different sizes and some with a couple colors even. I chose this specific one though because there is a new project that created a terminal emulator and this model was the one targeted so I knew it would work.

@kelbot nice! Thanks for that. I always forget to look on AliExpress.
