    That really looks good. I will try it myself when I can get the screen.

    Wi-Fi Issues

    By way of a little update on this project which may help others.

    With continued bench testing I was beginning to find problems with pCP getting a Wi-Fi connection during boot. It was getting more and more unreliable even though the access point is less than 2m away. The logs showed that it could see the AP but just not connect having issues renewing its lease. I was beginning to think that I had damaged the board in some way because I could not figure out why it would work and then get worse.

    A thought was to modify the board to add the U.FL socket and use an external antenna which I have done with my main HiFi player as it is mounted in a Ali chassis.

    If you look at the setup once its all bolted together the PCB Wi-Fi antenna on the pi is buried with the cable to the LCD on the screen running nearby together with the DSI cable. Before I committed to hacking the Pi I had one last thing to try. I placed a layer of Kapton tape over the screen, then copper tape which was grounded to the Pi together with another insulation layer of Kapton tape and bingo it works reliably again.

    Hi guys,

    yesterday i also bulit a system with the same display that uses user garym999.
    Picoreplayer and Raspberry 4.

    Is there also a need to calibrate the display?
    The problem is when i want to set up jivelite. I want to set language to german but it switches to italien. Also the display react very slow.
    I also tested the system with volumio. In that case everything works fine.

    Does anybody can help me?

    Greetings Daniel

    I have solved the problem. Switch display rotation from 0 to 180 and back again. Now it worls fine.

    But VU-Meter does not work. The "needles" don`t move.
    I add "-v" to the various options. But nothing happened.

    Greetings Daniel

    Hi Gary, would you mind sharing the STL files for the screen - fancy having a go at this myself.
