Just got a Blu on ebay.
Put plenty of games on it but in many of the emulators etc I get a band of lines 2/3rd of the way up the screen.
Is there a difference in the blu tft to the ealier FLU units ?
I notice that DRMD starts off with these lines on the screen but if I set the screen options to Tiawanese the situation is instantly corrected and my display is clear.
Do I need some util to sort this ?

I seem to recall that there was two versions of the BLU display, so you had to use the appropriate firmware. Some emulators also had options to select the LCD type when they used hardware hacking to talk to the LCD.

If you think I have the BLU+ is there a way to confirm this.
On the Back it just says BLU and GP32-002.

If the gray lines go away in DrMD when you switch to the Taiwanese LCD, then you definitely have a BLU+. Most software either provide two binaries for normal/blu+, or they auto-detect the hardware, so there's nothing to worry about.
