    Default OLED Raspberry Pi

    When using a raspberry pi as my player, running FPP, I can just connect a 4 pin OLED (128X64 I2C SSD1306) to pins 1,3,5 and 6 on the pi, then enable the OLED in the FPP settings and it will work, correct?

    Also, would I need to do anything special to connect an RTC to the same I2C bus as the OLED?

    Yes the I2C buss allows multiple devices at the same time.

    Yes... You can connect them both.

    That said, I DO sell a hat specifically for this purpose and an RTC is an option: https://kulplights.com/product/pi-oled/

    Thanks. I'll look into your hat, but I'll probably just rig something up myself for now.

    The expansion connector for the PI zero and the PI 2,3 etc are all the same. The issue might be if the hat touches something on the pi. Easily solved with a thin sheet of plastic.
