The same in English:
I extended my RPi3 with the 7″ Touch Display.
As audio setup I have a HDMI audio adapter and for Kodi and Jivelite I want to use the 7″ Touch Display. Display and audio work perfectly for Squeezelite and Kodi.
Switching from Jivelite (in autostart) to Kodi and back works fine. Now to my problems:
-With a black border in the video (e.g. top and bottom) in Kodi I always see the background of Jivelite. This is hardly disturbing on the 7″ display, but not nice.
-In the desktop, the automatic shutdown of the display works; in Jivelite only with the screen saver „Blank Screen“. The problem is now, when I pause or stop the playback (-> screen saver on blank screen) and then start Kodi, that in Kodi the screen turns off because Jivelite activates the screen saver. You can only activate it again by quitting Kodi via the web interface.

Unfortunately I didn’t find any information about this, am I the only one with this problem?
Is it possible to install a function in the screensaver of Jivelite that checks if Kodi is running? Or is there a possibility, if you start Kodi from Jivelite, that Jivelite ends/minimizes and/or deactivates the screen saver and starts/maximizes/activates it again when you quit Kodi?

I am grateful for help.

Yours sincerely
