    Today Jivelite froze this morning at 4:45 - as it sometimes does (at different times). I did as usual, I unplug at the wall, reboot. This time piCorePlayer gave me the following message (same as in #1003 in this thread a few pages back):

    Starting Jivelite...There is a problem with the Jivelite installation. Please remove and reinstall Jivelite.

    I didn't do this, I just rebooted piCorePlayer from the web-interface and Jivelite came back up. I wonder if anyone has found the root cause of this problem? (first problem being that it freezes from time to time, but second problem that it wouldn't start) ... is it just that I've used an old SD-card (that I've found in a drawer) and it's either just a slow one, or maybe near end-of-life?

    Best regards,
    Claus

    Control Jivelite via IP

    Hi

    I wondered if it was possible to control Jivelite directly via IP - i.e. skip the whole remote control/IR thing. I control my whole AV setup with (old) Pronto's which have a perfectly nice javascript interface with tcp sockets, httplib etc.. So, all of the control is done just via IP (with the exception of the damn TV which has no IP interface) and the Amazon TV, for which I use a central hub which I connect to via IP to spray IR, and a FLIRC. I could use FLIRC again for Jivelite, but I wondered if there was a way of connecting directly via IP?

    Thanks

    What aspects of JiveLite would you want to control? It's like
    controlling a remote control?...

    Hi Michael

    Well, as a first pass, being able to mimic the key presses would be great. Open a socket and send a keystroke. Skip the ir to lirc to Jivelite steps. I wondered how Jivelite listened to lirc...

    Jivelite is basically a software that send http commands to a LMS server.
    So you can use anything that outputs http request to m perform the same commands : your web browser, curl, python ...
    I even tried a cool thing : use an esp8266 to issue the requests. Since the esp8266 can be invoked with Alexa, it's like I can talk to my LMS/Jivelite to control it.

    But what you want is to control the _player_, not the controller? Use
    LMS' CLI commands to do so.

    Hi Michael

    No, actually here I want to control the controller, not the player. I already use cli to control other players, but here I have Jivelite displayed on my TV and want to be able to use the UI to select music etc..

    There's no way to directly control Jivelite over the network.

    Maybe there's some software out there which could emulate a keyboard and
    be controlled over the network?

    It is possible to control jivelite from a shell script.

    I use it for testing sometimes, but you either have to keep track of where in the menus jivelite is or reset to a known menu item at the start of every run.

    What is your JiveLite running on?
    If a Raspberry Pi (but not pCP - for now at least) ... then you might be able to use the TV remote to control it - via HDMI CEC.
