    Hello support team,

    I have connected a Waveshare 7 inch touchscreen display to my Raspberry Pi 2B/HiFiBerry DAC + audio player.
    The version of Max2Play is 2.53, and this Max2Play system is running fine for several months until I started to connect this display.
    The Waveshare display is a 7 inch HDMI LCD (H) which is connected between the HDMI ports of the display and the raspberry.
    The size of the display is 1024 x 600.

    I have installed the Jivelite add-on, and I started with the configuration:
    I had to install the „port for 2.8 “ 320×240 Adafruit LCD (QVGA TouchSkin by bogdandimitru)“ which seems to be the only valid choice.
    The „patch joggler skin for 1024×600 Waveshare 7 inch screen (by Martin)“ which seems to be more relevant could NOT be installed.
    In addition I have chosen for the Joggler Skin for the display in 7 inch in the Jivelite Settings (as mentioned in the Jivelite configuration screen).

    This works (almost) fine (including the touch function). However, the Jivelite display is too wide (at the right side) so not all text is displayed at the right side…
    This only occurs with Jivelite…. the initial Max2Play window which pops up during the start of the software is correctly sized: it fits very well in the linux window.
    I have tried to decrease the overscan in the config.txt file, but this does not help….

    So it is almost OK….. is there a way in which I can decrease the horizontal span at the right side in Jivelite???

    Best regards, Tom

    Problem has been resolved!
    I had to add some lines in the config.txt file:

    hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0

    That’s all, now I have the proper Jivelite display, all sized well.
