    A couple of weeks ago I ordered a set of components here at Max2play and this made me a very happy and satisfied (and proud!!) owner of a RPi2 + DAC + 7“ touchscreen in a sleek case. Man, I love that puppy!!

    I have one question: in the web pages there is the note about de -v command line option to enable VU meter / spectrum analyzer in Jivelite. I have enabled the -v option to squeezelite but I cannot find the VU meters anywhere in Jivelite. Where to look for them?

    Where to look for them?

    Just tab anywhere on the now playing screen and it should cycle through different visualizations/artwork etc. You can activate those screens in the screen settings of jivelite if nothing happens

    Thank you fblu, at least I know wehere to look now.

    But: in the settings screen I only have three options: artwork, text and artwork + text. No visuals.

    Any clue?

    Hi Pastinakel,
    When you added the „-v“ parameter, you should be able to switch between visualisation by just tapping anywhere on the screen during normal playback.

    if Jivelite doesn’t show any visualisation after adding the „-v“ parameter to the startup of Squeezelite, it might be neccessary to „Reset Jivelite Settings“ on Jivelite Tab of Max2Play web interface. After this you must restart Jivelite and choose your skin (Joggler Skin for 7″ touchdisplay) and your language again. VU-Meter and Spectrum should now show up when playing music.

    Hi Dragon,

    Have you reset your Jivelite settings via our web interface yet?

    9. August 2019 at 15:15 #46734

    Okay, after another reset it works! Thank you!

    I had a similar experience. In my case I coul not manage to make the VU meter and Analyzer work properly. The VU meter is kind of flickering-tossing-wandering and the Analyzer is kind of hidding bellow the bottom and displaying only top/max values of spectrum. My stup is Pi 3B, HiFi berry dac+, 7” rpi official touch, joggler skin for 7”. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Hi Palme,

    Have you tried resetting the Jivelite to Max2Play presets in our web interface?

    25. September 2020 at 10:04 #49753

    I have the same problem as Palme30. The VU meter is flickering, and the Analyzer is hiding below the bottom of the screen. I have Pi 3B, IQ-Audio Pi DAC+, 7″ rpi touch, joggler skin for 7″. I have reset the Jivelite two times with no success.

    Display with VU meter

    Also a link to a very short video showing the display: VU meter video

    Hi trondkj,

    Which Max2Play version do you use and which image (stretch/buster)? What settings have you made in Squeezelite?

    1. Oktober 2020 at 9:27 #49781

    I’m running M2P v 2.5.2 on stretch, Jivelite set to use the Joggler skin on 7″ touch screen.

    Hi trondkj,

    I tested the VU meter with a Pi 3 and a DAC and couldn’t reproduce the problem. Can you please send me your debug info from the audio player tab?
