    Jive Player

    Does Jive Player work with HDMI to a TV? or just LED

    Jive Player

    It works.
    If you are thinking of using HDMI TV (rather than a computer monitor) then you cannot use the TV remote to control it via CEC (unless you use Max2Play for now at least).
    So you would need to plug in a keyboard (or some other form of controller) on your computer to get past the language selection dialogue.
    After that you could remove the keyboard and control what is playing from a web browser etc and use Jive as a Now Playing screen if you want.

    Under VU Meter in pCP Jivelite settings choose collosos.
    You then get to it by touching (or clicking) on the Now Playing screen a few times

    Jive Player

    I have not tried it over HDMI though.
    I guess it will depend on the resolution selected as well.
    Plus - needs to be on the same device as the Squeezelite that it playing the track.

    Edit: if Jive as a player then I think you can ignore my last comment above
