If it helps any, I’ve found this info on turning on/off the screen:
to turn off:
echo 1 > /sys/class/backlight/rpi_backlight/bl_power
To turn on:
echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/rpi_backlight/bl_power
Could it perhaps be possible to have the screen turn off when the Squeezelite player is turned off (as in, when the ‘power’ button in the top left of the screen is pressed)?11. November 2015 at 17:24 #16856
thanks for sharing your ideas! We will think about adding the screen turn on/turn off feature to the screensaver options and check if this works.
Regarding HDMI and touchscreen at the same time or changing on the fly with a switch:
I am sorry, but this is currently not possible with Kodi. Some Apps (like omxplayer) support to choose from connected HDMI and DSI displays, but Kodi doesn’t support it. The only option is to change the default display and reboot. To do this you have to add following to the file /boot/config.txt and reboot.
This is only helpful, if you want to use it without the touchscreen, as you need to revert the changes and reboot to get the touchscreen running again. We will think about adding this parameter to the Display configuration in the web interface as it helps to improve the “activation” process of HDMI.
EDIT: I just added this switch to the Max2Play Web interface to the current BETA. You may find it in the “RPi Display” Addon.

mmm … I don’t see an option for “LCD as Default Display”
What I do see are:
– Activate Console Output on Touchscreen
– Rotate display of Touchscreen
– Remove Cursor (e.g. mouse pointer)
– Kodi Mouse 1-Click
Do I perhaps need to re-load the RPi Display plugin somehow?26. November 2015 at 20:11 #17047
Also, when Kodi’s ‘dim’ screensaver kicks in you can see Jivelite behind the dimmed Kodi interface, which looks very ugly.
Killing Jivelite doesn’t help – you just see the terminal text behind Kodi instead 8^|
I don’t remember having any issues like this with Max2Play on my U3 Odroid.
