Not at all. All for community 🙂

But. There is one issue with that waveshare driver. As I mentioned in another thread (about visualization plugin lost\not works), this driver leads to eth0 dissapearing after its installation. If during installation you was on the cable at that time you will be needed to connect to RPi via AP-mode or USB-keyboard, to switch to another tty (ALT+F6, for example) and continue that way to boot up the player. But the solution is simple actually: raspi-config -> 2.Network Options->N3 Network interface names predictable->No->OK->Finish->Reboot now. After that eth0 will came alive again:)
It will be very useful if you will take it into account too within your wish to add solution for waveshare LCD as option to max2play. Thank you!
