    You can only promote a plugin top menu to Home menu. Click and HOLD the "RemoteControl" menu and you should get a popup with an option to add to Home menu.

    Okay, I did that. Thank you for this! It's really great.

    But I have another idea: could the "Stereo On" and "Stereo Off" commands be made as separate plugins. That way they could both be on the Home menu. I'm not sure that I would know how to do this--any chance you would be willing to make those two plugins?

    Short answer - No.

    Firstly because I'm not sure it is possible to make an active plugin menu at top level, so it would take time to test and figure it out - even then it may fail - so time wasted
    I only did the initial plugin because it coincided with other stuff I was doing on wifi plugs.

    Is two presses really so hard ?

I'm hoping to put a menu item on the Picoreplayer so I don't have to physically bend over to the power cord (so much work!) or even have to be in the room. This plugin is getting me close to just having to tap on a web page, or my phone's Squeeze Controler, or the touchscreen.


    So, any idea how I can promote it to the main Jivelite screen?
    Nop, I just turn on the amp and the rest folowes. The cord senses that the master (the amp) is using more current and sees that as a signal to turn the slave sockets on.

    Seems complex !

    If you do what Edwin2006 does then you can just use the "Power On/Off GPIO" built into pCP to turn the amp on (Via and Relay or SSR) and the rest will follow
