I updated the config.txt needed wit Jessie or newer distro;
Does your code meets these (can module) settings?
thank you for the quick feedback. Yes, my settings meet the updated information you provided.
PS: I did reinstall hardbyte-python after setting my default python version in jessie to python2.7 using the update-alternatives command in jessie and that solved the problem. All is now working perfectly. – Thank you !
