    What are the keyboard controls

    I'm running squeezelite on picoreplayer on a raspberry pi 3 with a hifiberry amp 2.
    What are the keyboard controls and how do I configure them?
    Is it in squeezelite or picoreplayer?
    I want to butcher a wireless keyboard and make a controller with pause/play next/last track and volume using arcade machine buttons.

    Ryan

    Also, what thread should I put this in?

    Aha - you had already started a new thread.

    To summarise the responses in other posts ... when using a keyboard with pCP it is driving Jivelite (the UI).

    The starting point for keyboard usage is as documented for SqueezePlay at
    http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.ph...Developers_FAQ

    However, I can see that it is not exactly as described there ... for example using a USB attached keyboard the "I" seemed to map to "Power Off" rather than "Up".

    Update:
    JiveLite souce from Ralphy's GitHub ...
    https://github.com/ralph-irving/jivelite
    Take a look at /share/jive/jive/InputToActionMap.lua
    (which does indeed show "i" mapped to "Power" along with the rest)

    Awesome thanks Paul. I felt like I was starting to push my luck chasing you guys around the internet with this.
    I'll research those links and see if I can't get it up and running

    Here are the supported keys for jivelite.

    See the Keypress and Jive Action columns.

    Keys marked yes in the New column are only available with the latest code from my github jivelite repository.

    That's fantastic thanks Ralphy.

    How do I install the latest code onto my picoreplayer version.

    Sorry for all the noobness. I definitely sit more on the user side of the fence

    As you're already running picoreplayer, you'll have my jivelite build which supports all the keys listed.

    Am I able to configure them myself?

    Yes, I describe how to add/change key mappings in this post.

    Make sure you backup your pcp config before you reboot, or you'll loose all your changes.

    Hi Ralphy,
    In the keyboard control list there is the capability to set 9 presets.

    Are those presets able to perform most functions?

    I'd like to be able to start playing one of my favourites with one of them
