What baum display do you have?

I had similar problems, I had a vario some time ago and tried to use that.
but it didn't work. but then I got it working by changing the emulation in 
the display and another brltty driver.

För example, with the baum vario, you can change to the emulation used for 
the tsi navigator display, I think it's emulation 3.

Then it will work.
