    what is the "piCorePlayer / HDMI / console / shutdown" password?

    Start piCorePlayer with an HDMI monitor attached.

    After startup you see a console. (trash can, file manager, Logoff, etc.)

    One of the Logoff options is "shutdown".

    When this is selected the programs demands a "password" (same for reboot).

    Can anyone tell me what password is required?

    Thank you.

    That doesn't feel like piCorePlayer...

    Anyway, default login/password on piCorePlayer is: tc / piCore

    Could the HDMI console be from the AMP2?

    I am running Picoreplayer to drive a HiFiBerry AMP2. Could the HDMI console be from the AMP2?

    I get lost trying to understand where one company's stuff ends and the other one begins.

    I've never used piCorePlayer with a HiFiBerry Amp, only with DAC cards - one is a HiFiBerry DAC, the other is an IQAudio DAC+ - in both cases the DACs are set up using the piCorePlayer web interface. Have you tried that for your HiFiBerry Amp?

    If you have a monitor hooked to HDMI, then you will just see the console, and get a command prompt. There is no graphical interface on piCorePlayer, and none of you hardware can do that either.

    Unless you have manually installed an X11 system extension from piCore, then you are probably not using piCorePlayer.

    Right you are ... I had a "senior moment"

    DOH!

    I have 2 RPi3s and I am experimenting with both Picoreplayer and Max2Play.

    I got confused as to which one was connected to the monitor/mouse/keyboard.

    It is a Max2Play console because I am trying to understand KODI and it seems that the console is part of that feature.

    My apologies for the confusion and the waste of your time.
