Unfortunately I really want to use this monitor for a QML gui I'm writing so I can visually see what is going on with the watering system without using Blynk. Any suggestions on how to get the two of them to play nicely?
You have things hooked up on Raspberry Pi i2c Bus 2? I'm not sure that bus works totally correctly. We certainly haven't tested it. We tried years ago and it didn't behave well so we have never resisted it.
