Thanks Mark,

I was eventually able to install fbi, it may have been a proxy issue at my end that someone silently fixed (pure speculation). The mplayer2 still won't install however; not a big deal for me since I'm not planning on playing videos.

However I haven't been able to get pygame to display to fb1 (just opens to the HDMI screen on fb0). This was using the example at https://ozzmaker.com/faq/use-python-display-information-piscreen/

I've ended up using the solution posted here:

I.e. opening the frame buffer directly to update: f = open("/dev/fb1","wb"). Is there something I need to install, perhaps an "SDL" package?

Blip, blop, bloop...
