I will use the plugin to control jivelite via IR.

Problem:
„irxevent“ does not start out of the box.

HW:
Pi 4B / 4GB RAM,
7″ Touch Display „official“,
TSOP4838,
PRC-30 Remote (Sky),
BH1750

SW (Version Beta-201125):
Linux 5.4.51-v7l+ #1333 SMP Mon Aug 10 16:51:40 BST 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux
Logitech Media Server (v8.0.1, 1608617100, Tue Dec 22 07:18:04 CET 2020)
Squeezelite Max2Play v1.0.3 based on v1.8.7-999
JiveLite 0.1.0
Plugin Bluetooth
Plugin Hardwarecontrol

Solution:
in /opt/max2play/custom_autostart.sh replace:
– `if [ „$(ps -Al | grep irxevent | wc -l)“ -lt „1“ ]; then export DISPLAY=:0;sudo su -l pi -c „irxevent -d /var/www/max2play/\
application/plugins/hardwarecontrol/scripts/ir/my_lircjivelite“;fi`
with
+ `if [ „$(ps -Al | grep irxevent | wc -l)“ -lt „1“ ]; then export DISPLAY=‘:0′;sudo -u pi -H /usr/bin/irxevent -d /var/www/max\
2play/application/plugins/hardwarecontrol/scripts/ir/my_lircjivelite; fi`

(same sudo-pattern used for starting up jivelite from start_audioplayer.sh)
