We will consider to add this feature to your display plugin, but also you can have a look at this source:

You can apply the commands in the link we sent you using bash ssh session, not in the Squeezelite Command Line, and in order to apply these commands you need to install the following plugin:

The remote control installed without incident.
Following the instructions for changing display brightness I am getting a Permission denied error:

Please make sure that you saved the file correctly, there is no need to restart the pi, also make sure that you have the latest version of max2play, which is 2.41
We have test the brightness on our lab and it works fine, and we are considering to add this functionality to our display plugin.

I went back into the Brightness file and the new value was there. To save the value I changed the file attribute to R/W. The system is running Max2play 2.41 (released version). The file Actual_brightness shows the value entered.
My setup consists of Audio Player running Squeezelite, Squeezebox Server, Jivelite, RPi-Display, HiFiBerry, Filesystem, Raspberry Settings, and Remote Control. The hardware is a Raspberry Pi model 3 and a HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro.
I am interested in reducing the screen saver clock brightness.
Thanks for your continued help.

As mentioned in the following thread i would prefere as it said here when it is possible to set up the brightness of displays with a controller (maybe 1-100%) to regulate the brightness.
Maybe it should be possible to set up the brightness in generals behaviour and a special set up for the screensaver.
I look forward to see a feature like this in future 😀3. März 2021 at 23:01 #50875
Well, I will give a +1 for the recommendation to control the display brightness !!
To be honest, I gave Volumio a try in the meantime (using m2p and the former version of it since years), but Volumio looked promissing and interesting. One feature they have is exactly the possibility to control the brightness.
Even better than that is the function, to POWER OFF the 7″ Screen after a defined time when not playing !
That is, from my point of view, an essential function as more and more users integrate this player not only as a diy-project more than an alternative to a cd-player or other devices (so did I).
So could you please be so kind and give this feature request a higher priority ?
From the technically point, it is possible 😉
Thanks for your great work you guys did until today…5. März 2021 at 15:29 #50883
Thanks again for the suggestion. I have now moved the topic a bit forward on our developer’s agenda. Unfortunately he is very busy right now, so I can’t say how long it will be before he can take the time to implement this feature. But I agree that this would be a useful feature.
