Once you have your command to start the program you need to change the start up service to this new command. To do so simply SSH back into your pi. Make sure you are in the home directory by entering 'cd ~'. Then edit the script with 'nano startupDisplay.sh', once there copy and paste your new command overwriting the original and save the file pressing 'ctrl +x' y and then enter.
