    After a few months of usage I’ve still not found how to efficiently set up volume.

    I navigate through jivelite interface to switch the squeezlite players,
    then go to settings
    then pair or unpair devices
    then start music
    then switch device to adjust volume
    then switch device to pair / unpair

    I spend a lot of time switching devices controls and I wonder if there’s not a feature (premium or not) that helps for that.

    I’ve started to build a control panel in openHab but faced two main issues :
    – I’ve not been able to find master volume control for all player (maybe should I write a script for that!?)
    – on my raspberrypi 7″ touch screen, when I open openHab on firefox, within a minute, jivelite pops back up and I hide openHab which dissuade me to use it so far as I would like to use both of them (and not deactivate jivelite).

    If there is a jivelite plugin / sqeezbox plugin / lms plugin / max2play plugin / or else solution ? I’ll be glad to know more about it

    And if exists with a graphical equalizer it would be more than welcome 😉

    Thank you for help

    Hi Jack,

    As far as I know, there is no master fader for all players in the Multiroom system. So you would really have to build one yourself with openHAB or via script.
    In the API Examples plugin you can see the commands to change the volume of a player. You could then copy these into your script or openHAB.

    Btw, in the LMS settings, you have the option of synchronising the volume of already synchronised players. Perhaps the LMS plugin „Group Players“ could also be interesting for you. If I am not mistaken, with this plugin it is possible to control the volume of groups.
