no no... sorry... I try to explain better.
Of course I get the info in the WEB GUI.
I mean: I have a Raspberry Pi3 + touch LCD + Jivelite
In the "now playing" view, on the local LCD display I can chenge different view (title and cover, title only, cover only, vu meter, etc.) but there is NO view displaying technical infos about the file (bitrate, sample rate, etc.)

Ah!

You can't have this info permanently displayed, but on the now playing screen, press "Now Playing" at top of the screen, on the pop-up scroll to "More Info".

I understand, clear.

Question: how can I customize the now playing view in order to have two infos in the mail view ? I am talking just about sample rate and bith depth.

Hi steff
I believe a tweaked Jivelite "now playing" screen can be created , as there are quite a few of them already. If you install Jivelite from the PCP package, you will have access to famous VU meters too.

Perhaps there is info in :http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?103330-Jivelite-for-piCorePlayer
on how to create one, or Ralply can help to show how this must be done.

I assume your feature request is not unique, I myself would like that too, but decided not to give it my time now.

btw kidstypike, nice disknaming convention.
