    OK a lot clearer.
    So the TV display has to be able to show & interact as a full UI and not just a "Now Playing" auxiliary status display.

    Jivelite is one way, running a web browser with the material skin on the RPi is another. No problem using the same RPi that is running LMS.
    Thanks. i assume there is some kind of remote and Ir reciever that can plug into usb?

    Instead of TV remote - how about a USB "Mini Wireless Keyboard with Mouse Touchpad" type device just for the LMS.

    Its not essential. I really am open to suggestions... is kodi a better choice?

    " Now playing" would be ok, if the extra info was displayed. Another device for input would be ok... such as a wireless keyboard or even voice....

    The basic experience Im looking for the is the digital version of:

    - thumbing through the record collection on the shelf
    - sitting in a comfy chair, listening to a record and reading the liner notes....
    - ideally, friends can do this when they visit without needing my phone or ipad, although i suppose a dedicated device would be ok

    Is your amp connected to the TV as part of a home cinema setup
    or
    Is the amp part of a separate setup, CD player is an input to amp and you expect to add a DAC to the Pi which will connect to the amp through a separate input.

    No cd player, i have ripped them all on my pc and made flacs, added meta data and is the input to play for this project
    Expecting the pi to feed the amp via DAC
    Currently appletv runs netflix for 'cinema' and feeds amp on another input and the tv over hdmi

    easiest way is to have either the server Pi connected to the TV and run Jivelite on it, HDMI connection gives yo a giant TV interface. If you can't get that PI connected to the TV another PI, running picoreplayer connected to the TV with Jivelite installed will also do.

    for remote you'd need any old remote (i use a logitech harmony as thats what does everything else in my lounge) and a Flirc plugged into the PI thats connected to your TV
    PiCorePlayer 7.1 on Allo Digi One Signature (Lounge)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1 with hifiberry Dig+ Material running on PI for control (Office)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1 with pi official touchscreen and hifiberry DAC+(Kitchen)
    Radio (Bedroom)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1 with Allo BOSS DAC (Bedroom)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1 with hifiberry AMP+. Squeezelite=x for control (Garage)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1 with hifiberry AMP+(Patio 2)
    PiCorePlayer 8.1.1 with hifiberry AMP+(Patio 2)

    LMS 8.1 on DIY unRaid 6 Server (i5)

    https://flirc.tv/more/flirc-usb is probably the most popular, but not sure what it takes to get it properly interfaced to jivelite or material.
