Unfortunately we cannot solve the display problem. The real problem is the USB remote control though. For IR remote controls we offer the possibility to control Squeezelite directly. However, this simple option for USB remote controls does not exist. Squeelite only offers IR support and since it runs in the background, control via keyboard commands (which the USB remote control uses) is not possible.
So either you switch to an IR remote control or continue to use your smartphone with apps such as iPeng or Squeezer.
