    Managed OLED on RPi/SqueezeLite setup

    As I couldnĺt get any information about implementing a SH1106 OLED screen for LMS data in piCorePlayer, I went for another solution to achieve this. My new RPi media streamer uses the Audiophonics Sabre 9038Q2M DAC which allows for a dedicated SH1106 OLED connected to this soundcard/DAC to display stream data. For esthetic reasons I wanted a similar display for LMS data. I ended up using DietPi with SqueezeLite. OLED is handled by pydPiper and LUMA.OLED for the necessary driver.
    When idle LMS display shows clock and local wunderground data. The case is my own 3D printed design.

    Hi Dean_Bayliss,

    I've installed the display-program and I really like it. What I just don't know - how can it be switched off?
    To me it seems when the PiCorePlayer is switched off (not powerless!), the display will stay lit and show the last information from when it was playing.

    I'm about to put it inside my bathroom-wall with a PiZeroW and add some touch-buttons.
    I'd appreciate if it would be possible to switch it off / blank when the "POWR=["button","power"]"" is pressed. I'm using for the buttons the SBPD daemon (https://github.com/coolio107/SqueezeButtonPi-Daemon).
    Can you help me?

    Regards,
    Maeffjus

    I just had a quick look at pydPiper on Github and I did not spot any special handling for the player being powered off in LMS.
    So - I think that the way to do this for now would be to configure the "Stop" display (canvas) to be a blank screen.

    Thanks Paul!
    But I did not really understand this point - is the pydPiper under the hood of the LMS-Monitor?
    Because otherwise I don't get the point of the connection of them both.

    The problem (as far as I remember now) is, it does not even display "Stopped" or whatever when powering off LMS.
    Do you got any idea how to change it in the LMS-Monitor or pydPiper - actually I'm already happy to be able to get the display working and the buttons as well.
    Everything beyond is on the edge of my skills ;-)

    Ah - I didn't read the whole thread ... I just went up to the previous picture and read what he did ... and I assumed it was the same.
    I'll have a quick look at lmsmonitor now.

    Looks like it is not configurable.

    You could try raising an issue at https://github.com/kabavol/LMSMonitor but there are already 2 raised there that have not had any feedback for some months.
