[Lcdproc] Can only show 16x2 on 20x2 LCD

Hello everyone, my first post here.

I have lcdproc 0.5.3 built from source on Ubuntu 10.04 x64 system.

Device attached is an lcd2usb clone with 20x2 LCD (hd44780 driver). Both
initial LCDd screen and lcdproc screens fill up entire 20x2. But if I
use plugins for either Banshee or Rhythmbox, they only use left 16
symbols (both lines).

These plugins are separate pieces of software, nothing common in the
code so it looks like LCDd accepts only 16x2 if polled by an external
software? Does that make sense to more experienced users here? Or is
this just a coincidence that both plugins are internally limited to

Any Banshee and/or Rhythmbox users here? Can you confirm the limitation?

Any ideas about extending the screen to the full 20 char lines will be
