    piCorePlayer Jivelite only output to 4x20 LCD or VfD

    Hello Comunity.

    Is it possible that the output from Jivelite only over SPi to an 4x20 LCD or Vfd runs, without only other displays?

    Regards vdr-box

    I think you'd be better off using SqueezeSlave as your player. It
    already offers an emulation of the full SB Classic UI.

    Hmm, this is not a good answer. ;-)

    Because the audio output over the headphone jack is only with pCP perfect for me

    Ok, the actual, correct answer to your question would be: "No".

    I only tried to show an alternative approach, as you can't use a GUI
    (JiveLite) on a 4x20 character display. Another alternative might be to
    try to get a high resolution graphical display compatible with the Pi in
    the size of your 4x20...

    Sorry my english is not so good.
    My expression above should not be meant to be evil.

    Next weekend I will make a 72 hours of hackathlon and test some various OS with same LCDs

    Thx vdr-box

    VERY nice indeed! I thought something like that would be feasible. But I
    didn't even find a display module in this kind of size. IMHO that would
    be your best bet.

    Yes it is very nice.

    My Raspi is now setup with pipaos, squeezelite and lirc. At my hackathlon this weekend
    i test the setup with a 4x20 LCD and an HD4487x Controller. The LCD is only for testing.

    In the End i will have this:Name:  1-Stück-Futaba-M202SD16FJ-VFD-Display-2x-20.jpg
