Sam - it works thanks and the pioled can be enabled with fbtft support at boot.
Unfortunately the add-on I want to use https://github.com/vitalogy/script.kodisplay is proving tricky - it requires SDL and pygame. Have got about 98% of the way there but it fails. There is a fault installing pygame but it completes.

It runs fine in stock raspbian - but I’ve hit the limit of my abilities…
Suspect I’ll have to use a second Pi and KodiDisplayInfo to remotely connect instead.
(The aim is to have a neat small OLED or TFT screen that shows Kodi status separate to the main video output. Tuned Live TV channel, File playing etc. Kodisplay is much neater and better implemented than Kodi Display Info, but the latter runs over http whereas the former needs to run on the same box I think)
