    If you still struggle, I've created a backup of a clean pcp 8 image with the extensions and config already done which works on my Pi4B. Happy to share it.

        Thanks the image worked great. I still would like to understand why my manual installation couldn't find that module.

          Yes, likewise would be good to know, but pleased it worked - you'll just have to change the IP address on the user command and that should be it I think.

              Have you done anything with the Nuvoton processor on the Evo-Sabre board? I would like to be able to put the left display into an "off" or screen saver state without powering down the board. I would also like to be able to select a specific input rather than cycle through with the rotary encoder.

                No, I haven't looked at this - not sure how accessible any of that it. BTW, you can enable an auto off for the left screen. Use the rotary button to seelect Display - it defaults to Always On.

                  The rotary knob just cycles through the various inputs on my units, I don't see anything about display. Maybe different firmware.

                    Sorry - my fault. I was going from memory and thought it was on the rotary knob. Doh. It's on the remote instead. It's the blank button on the remote - will pull up the filter options. Then up and down arrow on the remote to select different items - one of which is display.

                      If anyone wants it, I've built a fresh PCP 8.1.0 image and just installed the updates for the second screen, infra red etc.. So, it's just a stock image with the changes to make it work with the EvoSabre. I've also updated the script so that it'll discover the LMS server so you don't have to change the user commands. So, it should basically just work as soon as you start up the dac. You'd just need to change the name etc..

                        Dear!
                        I was trying to do something like what you did using dietpi.

                        Do you plan to put your script on Github or to share in any other way?

                          Yep - happy to share it however you like. It started off as a deitpi download from Audiophonics, but that was a) not on PCP which is what I wanted b) really outdated (old versions of python etc.), and c) used lots of generic approaches to things rather than trying to be efficient with LMS etc..

                            I looked to your python code, I will merge some of yours mods in mine and share. In particular your conversion to Python 3 is better than mine and also the revisiting of LMS info extraction.

                            On my side I removed everything about volume control and fixed the volume control inside LMS (I leave the Volume Control to the DAC), so I removed everything from the display.
                            Idem in the code there are parts about SPDIF (maybe from Audiophonics Rasptouch).

                            I'm working on change the screensaver from a clock to a Vu-Meter ( like: https://github.com/shunte88/LMSMonitor but I think is abandoned) when a song is playing.

                            In this moment I'm on DietPi but the approach is similar.
                            Also I made some change to LIRC:
                            - manage the poweroff input
                            - ignore any other remote command except play/pause and Poweroff.
                            - I'm looking to integrate the support to another remote, maybe by Rpi-bluetooth

                            If you make a Github I will contribute. I don't like volumio at all.

                            I attach my version, as wrote before, you managed better than me the Python 3 conversion and the info extraction from LMS. I will merge your mods in mine and share again.
                            lms_oled_3.12_NG.py.txt

                            In this days I am in war with LMS, sometimes it decide to not start or take minutes to start... I don't know why. Nothing in log, nothing anywhere.

                              Hi

                              Yes, I'll post something to github when I'm back - I'm away at the moment. I have done some recent updates - not sure if you have them. The main change was to auto-detect the LMS IP address by broadcasting the discovery packet, which is quite nice. It'll also happily retry until it finds the server - for example if you're rebooting the server after updating a plugin etc..

                              On the volume front, I just have mine set to 100% in LMS and then the code just doesn't display the volume - I also don't use the volume here. My own IR file is also more limited, but I thought I'd post something with all the same options as the original for people.

                                An image would be nice

                                Dear Pete,
                                I would like to have an image. I have problems to install the second screen.
