8.8" 1920x480 letterbox LCD HSD088IPW1 with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi 1920x480 LCD

The HSD088IPW1 with Wisecoco HDMI driver board from Aliexpress.com work seemlessly with a PC but refused to play nicely with my Raspberry Pi until making these changes, tested with Raspbian (March2021) on a Pi Zero W.

These lines modified in /boot/config.txt file

# These lines for 1920x480 display
max_framebuffer_height=1920
hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
hdmi_timings=480 1 48 32 80 1920 0 3 10 56 0 0 0 60 0 75840000 3
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_force_mode=1
hdmi_drive=1
config_hdmi_boost=4

The default orientation is portrait. To rotate the display, include the line

lcd_rotate=1

How do I make the resolution smaller? I have the 480x1920 display. But the hole it is going in is smaller.

Thanks man! Exactly what i searched for after i tried to get that display working on a pi.
Only the display rotation command is wrong, you need display_hdmi_rotate=1

OMG Thank You!!! Was smashing my head trying to figure out why it wouldn't work with a Pi Zero W 2, but works perfectly fine with a Pi 4 with the same cable! Saved me a lot of headache

You're a life saver, I was starting to think something was horribly wrong hardware wise. I can confirm this works with the ModBro monitoring image on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. I went from having some sorta indistinct blur to having proper display! It's actually quite a nice display once it's working.
