    You must select the wallpaper from the jivelite settinging->screen->wallpaper menus.

    In the Now Playing screens the wallpaper is only used on the original (small album artwork and text only screens) all others are forced to black.

    There is no effect. I used "pcp_" and "jive_" prefixes. Convert them to png or jpg format.

    It's located in /tmp/tcloop/pcp-jivelite/opt/jivelite/share/jive/applets/NowPlaying but you can't modify it there.

    You have to copy the folder to /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/applets/NowPlaying, make changes and ensure you backup the pcp configuration before a reboot or all the changes will be lost.
    I would also like to tweak that a little bit to show my classical music tags in a better way. Could anyone help me to understand which properties (tags) can be read here instead:

    (NowPlayingApplet.lua, line 1976):
    Code:
    function _extractTrackInfo(self, _track)
    	if _track.track then
    		local returnTable = {}
    		table.insert(returnTable, _track.track)
    		table.insert(returnTable, _track.artist)
    		table.insert(returnTable, _track.album)
    		return returnTable
    	else
    		return _track.text or "\n\n\n"
    	end
    end
    I would love to read composer and conductor tag here. Is that possible? I wasn't able to find the definition of this _track object to understand that better.

    Exit from Now playing screen

    Hello,

    I have a pCP with Jivelite and Joggler skin running on a 5'' screen. The main control interface is based on buttons and rotary encoders. It works pretty well but I would like to improve the usability a bit.

    When a radio station is selected or the device is not touched for some seconds the "Now playing" windows gets activate, as expected. However, when I want to select another station or return to the Jivelite menu window I have to push the back/left button first to exit from Now playing and to activate the menu. On the active menu I can navigate by up/down controls as usual. The up/down commands have no effect on the Now playing window now.

    I would like Jivelite automatically exit from Now playing screen also when up/down command is received. The need of an extra command to exit from the Now playing screen is not comfortable IMO. Furthermore, the internetradio devices I know works on the same way I propose. Technically it could be implemented by mapping up/down key events to back/left/escape event when the Now Playing windows is the active one.

    I am not sure if it has to be modified in the Joggler skin or in Jivelite.

    Jivelite interface

    First post, apologies if I'm totally ignorant or in the wrong thread.

    I'm running pCP + Jivelite on a RPi 3B+ with a touchscreen. Great stuff!

    I have a few pCP players setup in my house, so I would like to be able to control volume and zones as easily as possible. The only way to, for example, lower player volume, (that I have found at least) is to go back to the main menu, select player, click the note in the upper right corner and the lower the volume. Also, there is no way to lower the overall volume of all zones. This feels a bit clunky. I have been looking for youtube videos of people using the interface, and as far as I could tell, on the Android version of the Squeezebox software, it is possible to click the "now playing" bar (which I think read [name of player] instead) to get to the select player menu. Or maybe the Android version had an extra bar in addition to the now playing bar, I'm not sure.

    Is there any way to customize the skin or Jivelite itself to make volume and zoning more easily accesible? Or am I just clicking the wrong places?

    Any help much appreciated! Thanks!

    The Android app was probably not Jivelite, it could've been Material skin which has the player selection on the top toolbar. (picture below).

    Can you give a link to the video you watched.

    Have you tried the "Group players" plugin with which you can assemble a virtual player and control the volume as a group?

    Thanks for the quick response!

    You are right, it's probably not Jivelite. However, please see link to video below. You can see him clicking the top bar at around 3:10, getting to the player selection directly

    https://youtu.be/0HNPiWQz03g?t=181

    I installed the group players plugin, but can't find how to create the virtual groups you refer to. Could you tell me a bit more how to do it?

    I think that's the old "squeezeplay" app which no longer works on android.

    To use group players > LMS > Settings > Advanced tab > Group Players (dropdown).

    I think you'll be able to work it out.

    You can then select the group player in the web ui, or on your pCP Jivelite screen.

    There are a few ways but one way from LMS web UI is to go to Settings/Plugins/Group Players - then you can create a group and put players into it.
    That group will then appear like a regular player.
