Let's say I have a Python script that receives an IR signal and lights up an LED. We'll call it a "hit" indicator. In the IR transmission, let's say a person's name was embedded in the signal. How might I write or draw that name onto the official Raspberry Pi 7" LCD that is connected via the display ribbon?

I'm sure there are many, many ways of doing this but one of the easiest would be to create a GUI with python's built in tkinter module. Size the GUI window to the size of the LCD screen and when the IR signal name is received, code a label with name received to be displayed on the GUI.
