Short Manual for the Max2Play 7 Inch Display Bundle
Step 1: Connect the Touchscreen and the Sound Card with the Raspberry Pi
Follow the instructions of your touchscreen and make sure that all pieces including spacers and screws are assembled optimally. Now stack the HiFiBerry DAC+ onto the GPIO connector bar on top of the Raspberry Pi.
Step 2: Bore Holes for the Audio Output of the HiFiBerry DAC+
Put the drilling template on the case and make sure it matches the already existing slots (audio jack output, HDMI and power supply). Then mark the fields that need to be cut out for the DAC+’s outputs on your display case.
Bore through the marked spots with a drill. Subsequently, check if the case fits the hardware system without any complications. If it does not, extend the holes until the case has no more resistance when put on the Pi with display and DAC.
Step 3: Solder the Pins onto the Sound Card
Solder the pinstrip onto the upper side of the HiFiBerry DAC+. The necessary connections are the first and the fourth hole (or third hole in the official manual) in the DAC+’s row. Solder the pins on these places. To fit them into the case, you also need to slightly bend those pins. Now connect the cables on the two bent pins with the power supply pins on the touchscreen named „5V“ on the right and „GND“ on the left.
Step 4: Enjoy Your New, Elegant Touchscreen Device with High-Quality Sound and Simple Touch Control
Put the microSD card into the Pi’s SD slot. It contains the preconfigured Max2Play Image. Put the case together and connect the power supply and network cable. Once the Pi is booting, the touchscreen will start to display the Jivelite menu. Just start your favorite radio channel, podcast or playlist.
Important: Select the Joggler Skin specifically designed for the 7 inch Touchscreen when first starting Jivelite!
