    How do I display the VU Meter from a Headless Rpi on a Display Rpi

    So I am controlling an Headless Rpi player with a Digione board from another Display Rpi with a 7" display. I installed Jivelite on the Display Rpi. I can see the VU meter when controlling the display Rpi (With Squeezelite enabled on Analogue Audio). I also installed Jivelite (and Squeezelite) on my headless Rpi, however I cannot display the VU meter on my Display Rpi when playing my Headless Rpi from the Display Rpi. How do I make this work?

    Rpi 3 B+
    piCorePlayer 3.5.0

    hi Sedim,

    The VUmeters only display the stream that is playing through the local RPi. So if you want the VU meters for a remote RPi you need to sync them via LMS. So effectively one stream plays through an amp and the other streams to the VU meters.

    regards
