    Which HDMI port are you using?

    If you use the keyboard and do
    ctl+alt+f1 (hold all 3 keys down together) does it switch back to the console with the text showing it booting?

    I am using mainly the one close the usb-C (power) but I have tried also the other one. It seems the same, after the boot the picore logo the screen become black.

    Regarding the second question, I am not sure. I have linked an usb keyboard. Sometimes it goes back to the boot/console screen sometimes no. With ctl+alt+f1 nothing happens, but sometimes if I push all the buttons it goes to the console screen and I can also write with the keyboard after it goes back to the black screen. Unfortunately, this is random and I am not able to go to the console whenever I want to.

    OK - leave it connected to the one beside the USB-C power socket.

    I am running out of ideas ... so next step is to see if we can get an error message out of Jivelite.

    Stop the script the script that launching Jivelite because it relaunches it each time that it fails and you will get a huge log file since all of the messages will be appended.

    ps -ef | grep jive

    #one of the lines will look very similar to this
    9515 root 0:00 {jivelite.sh} /bin/sh /opt/jivelite/bin/jivelite.sh

    #make a note of the number at the front (it will not be the same as above)
    #then
    sudo kill -5 xxxx
    # but replace the xxxx with the number that you saw from the output of the previous command

    # then
    ps -ef | grep jive
    # and you should see that jivelite.sh is no longer running (not listed any more).

    # then create a file called logconf.lua (see contents below - use Unix line endings) - download it and copy it to /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/logconf.lua
    # one easy way to do this is to use the vi editor on the Raspberry Pi
    vi /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/logconf.lua

    # if there is already some content in the file then delete it by typing
    dd
    # then paste in the contents of the file by typing
    i
    # and then paste it in ... and then
    esc
    :wq
    # where "esc" is the escape or Esc key

    # If all of that is too hard then find a program that can transfer files using "scp" - on MS Windows winscp is good.

    # If that worked then if you type
    cat /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/logconf.lua
    # you should see the contents of the file

    Code:
    return {
      appender={  },
      category={
        ["applet.DesktopJive"]="ERROR",
        ["applet.HttpAuth"]="ERROR",
        ["applet.LogSettings"]="ERROR",
        jivelite="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.applets"]="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.heap"]="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.player"]="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.task"]="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.ui"]="ERROR",
        ["jivelite.ui.draw"]="ERROR",
        ["lua.hooks"]="ERROR",
        ["net.comet"]="ERROR",
        ["net.http"]="ERROR",
        ["net.socket"]="ERROR",
        ["net.thread"]="ERROR",
        ["squeezebox.server"]="ERROR",
        ["squeezebox.server.cache"]="ERROR"
      }

    # ... then ...
    /opt/jivelite/bin/jivelite

    # then examine the end of the log file
    tail -20 /var/log/jivelite.log
