    Dear ahnykeester,

    Please try to deactivate your bluetooth of the Macbook Air. This should hopefully fix the problem which you have.

    I looked a bit in the internet and found this:

    Dear EdKo66,

    This could be a power supply problem. If you use a wifi dongle, a usb soundcard at the same time, it could be possible that you need a better power supply than the 2A power supply which comes with the Raspberry Pi.

    Best Regards.

    Hallo MM,

    Jivelite sollte ohne weitere Schwierigkeiten starten. Bitte schau ob du die aktuellste Version von Max2Play hast, falls nicht führe bitte ein Update durch. Weiterhin überprüfe bitte ob du das Dateisystem bereits expandiert hast. Beide Buttons, zum Ausführen dieser Funktionen, findest du im Einstellungen/Reboot Menü.

    Sollte dies nicht funktionieren, teile bitte deine DEBUG Informationen des Audioplayer Menüs (findest du im unteren Bereich) und die DEBUG Informationen des Einstellungen/Reboot Menüs.

    Beste Grüße


    Jivelite should start without further trouble. Please check if you have the latest version of Max2Play, if not update it please. Furthermore, please check if you have already expanded the file system. Both buttons to perform these functions can be found in the Settings / Reboot menu.

    If this does not work, please share your DEBUG information from the Audioplayer menu (located at the bottom) and the DEBUG information from the Settings/Reboot menu.

    Dear drundanibel,

    We do not have the 10.1-inch touch screen from Waveshare on site to test it. But it could be give problems with the driver and with the resolution of Jivelite or something else.

    Best way is to test it and tell us your results, if you want to. That would be nice.

    We currently support the displays which you can install over the display plugin. These are the original 7″ Raspberry Pi touch display, the 2,8″ touch display from watterott, the 2,4″ 4DPI-24-HAT and the 2,8″ and 3,5″ touch display from Adafruit.

    Best Regards

    Dear Andreas,

    thanks for your input. We will take a look onto this idea, but actually it is not easy to get your hands on one of this devices from amazon.

    Best Regards.

    Dear Arianna,

    we actually are working on different projects. Thank you for your input and if it gives a high demand for such a plugin, we will take a look on this.

    Dear EdKo66,

    If your setup is connected wireless with your router, please try a connect with a LAN cable. Maybe you have only a bad Connection to your router.
    If it does not help, please send me some more informations about your setup:

    Which soundcard is on the Raspberry Pi (if you use one)?

    Have you connected some USB devices? E.g. a wifi dongle? Often there is a problem, that the device have not enough energy if there are plugged several usb devices.

    Best Regards

    Hallo heinzelrumpel und std,

    Entschuldigt die späte Antwort.

    Es sollte ein erneuter Scan der verfügbaren Geräte genügen, um die blockierten Geräte wieder sichtbar zu schalten. Sollte das nicht funktionieren, führt ein Beta Update durch und probiert es erneut.

    Beste Grüße


    Sorry for the late response

    A rescan of the available devices should be sufficient to make the blocked devices visible again. If this does not work, run a beta update and try again.

    Hello repiuk,

    Sorry for the late response

    I have the SD protection plugin installed. Maybe that’s the cause.

    Yes this might be the problem. Please deactivate the SD-card write protection, if you want to install any plugins.

    First step is to expand your filesystem, then activate your license.

    Second step is to set all your settings you need and test that it works good.

    Last step if your setup is working, install the sd card write protection.

    Thanks for your input. Currently there is not enough demand for your idea/wish.

    If you want or known someone, or somebody in the forum want to realize this, you can build your own plugin für Max2Play. It is easy and works with the Pluginbuilder.

    Hello bobertuk,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    It is possible that some functions do not work properly under Ubuntu. Bluetooth and the Equalizer fall underneath it. These features were optimized for the old Max2Play – Odroid version.

    Dear Munich,

    Which image have you burn on your sd card? With the 7″ touch display image you should not have any problems.

    Best Regards

    9. Januar 2017 at 13:47 #25691

    Hallo max,

    wie ich bereits oben geschrieben habe, wählst du bei dem 7 Zoll Touch Display Image nur das Joggler Skin in dem ersten Setup von Jivelite aus, wenn du bereits in Jivelite bist.

    Das 7″ Touch Display Image ist für das offizielle 7″ Raspberry Pi Touch Display vorkonfiguriert.
    Deshalb sollte im Jivelite Menü von der Max2Play Browsersteuerung das Joggler Skin nicht ausgewählt und installiert werden. Das klappt dann nicht.

    Beste Grüße


    Hi Max,

    As I have already written above, you only select the Joggler Skin in the Jivelite 7-inch touch display image in the first setup of Jivelite if you are already in Jivelite.

    The 7 „Touch Display Image is preconfigured for the official 7“ Raspberry Pi Touch Display.
    Therefore, the Joggler Skin should not be selected and installed in the Jivelite menu of the Max2Play browser control. That does not work then.

    Best regards

    Hello jnile1,

    We tested it again and found no problems.

    Have you connected other devices to the Raspberry Pi? Via USB? The power supply may be insufficient.

    Please also look if the kernel is the latest. Under Settings/Reboot you can find this information in the lower part in the DEBUG information. There should be at least version 4.4.19 or higher.

    Hallo heinzelrumpel,

    Hier eine Antwort aus einem etwas älteren Post in unserem Forum von Stefan:

    Aktuell ist es mit Max2Play nur möglich Squeezelite und Kodi gleichzeitig laufen zu lassen. Dafür muss in den erweiterten Einstellungen von Squeezelite die Option “nutze USB-Soundkarte” aktiviert werden. Wichtig dabei ist, dass Kodi eine andere Soundkarte als Squeezelite nutzt. Z.B. USB-DAC/HifiBerry DAC oder AMP für Squeezelite und HDMI für Kodi.
    Zum Aktivieren von Airplay über Squeezelite bietet sich das Addon Shairtunes an, welches auf der Squeezebox Server Seite im Webinterface einfach installiert werden kann. Danach wird Shairport nicht mehr benötigt und Airplay über Squeezelite und Kodi sind gleichzeitig möglich.

    Ich hoffe das hilft dir weiter.

    Beste Grüße

    Hallo knorke007,

    Hast du bereits das HiFiBerry Image heruntergeladen? Oder ein vorkonfiguriertes Image aus dem Max2Play Shop mit SD-Karte erworben?

    Wenn du ein HiFiBerry Image hast, existiert der Menü-Punkt HiFiBerry. Dort kannst du deine Soundkarte (HiFiBerry DAC+) auswählen und klickst danach auf speichern. Dann musst du das Gerät neustarten. Nun sind alle Einstellungen für die Soundkarte vorgenommen.

    Nun installierst du das Bluetooth Plugin und verbindest dein Smartphone mit dem Raspberry Pi. Das siehst du in dem Video (engl.) welches wir hier anbieten:

    Wichtig für das Streamen über Bluetooth zu einer Soundkarte (z.B. HiFiBerry DAC+) ist, dass der Onboard Sound des Raspberry Pi deaktiviert wurde. Hierfür geh bitte in die Raspberry Einstellungen und setze einen Haken bei der Option Deaktiviere integriertes Audio bei RPi3.

    Nach einem Neustart, verbindest du dein Smartphone mit dem Raspberry Pi und startest deine Musikwiedergabe.

    Beste Grüße


    Have you downloaded the HiFiBerry Image yet? Or a preconfigured image from the Max2Play store purchased with SD card?

    If you have a HiFiBerry image, the menu item HiFiBerry exists. There you can select your sound card (HiFiBerry DAC+). After this click on save. Then you have to restart the device. Now all settings are made for the sound card.

    Now you install the bluetooth plugin and connect your smartphone with the Raspberry Pi. You can see this in the video that we offer here: Tweaks-for-the-optimal-max2play-setup /

    Important for streaming via Bluetooth to a sound card (such as HiFiBerry DAC +) is that the onboard sound of the Raspberry Pi has been deactivated. For this, please go to the Raspberry Settings </ em> and activate the checkbox for Disable integrated audio on RPi3 </ em>.

    After a restart, connect your smartphone with the Raspberry Pi and start your music playback.

    Dear konus,

    We are working on the implementation of the IR for JustBoom. We recently received the JustBoom remote control and we test it now. I will inform you in this post again as soon as it works.

    Currently, there is no case for a touch screen with JustBoom sound cards. Also here, I will write again in this post, if it is available in the shop.

    Hallo Thoralf,

    Ich empfehle dir das aktuelle Image mit Ubuntu 16.04 von hier herunterzuladen:

    Dann bist du auf dem aktuellsten Stand mit Max2Play in Kombination mit Odroid XU3/XU4.


    Dear Thoralf,

    I recommend you to download the current image with Ubuntu 16.04 from here:

    Then you are on the latest level with Max2Play in combination with Odroid XU3 / XU4.

    Hello repuik,

    I have tested the camera plugin and it was possible to install it and the plugin worked as it should.

    Have you already expanded the file system and updated to the latest Max2Play version (version 2.39)?

    19. Dezember 2016 at 14:09 #24994

    Hallo std,

    Wir haben hier ein How-To für das Plugin Imagebrenner. Damit ist es möglich dein Max2Play Setup zu speichern und auch auf andere SD-Karten zu brennen.

    Hallo heinzelrumpel,

    Wie std bereits geschrieben hat, ist es möglich KODI und Squeezelite zeitgleich zu benutzen. Es ist nicht zwingend erforderlich eine USB-Soundkarte zu nutzen. Dies funktioniert auch mit einem Raspberry Pi 2 oder 3 und einem HiFiBerry AMP+

    Hier findest du einen Wiki-Eintrag zu diesem Thema:

    Es ist wichtig den Reiter – „Nutze USB-Soundkarte“ zu aktivieren und in Kodi dann die entsprechende Soundkarte als Wiedergabegerät einzustellen. Neben dieser Funktion stehen auch nochmal relevante Informationen. Diese bitte auch beachten.

    @sven.hammen und @std

    Die Möglichkeit der Auswahl einer Soundkarte in den Raspberry Einstellungen wird deaktiviert wenn keine gültige Lizenz eingetragen ist. Ohne Lizenz kann die Soundkarte im Menü „Audioplayer“ ausgewählt werden. In den Erweiterten Einstellungen des Squeezelite-Players gibt es die Möglichkeit die eigene Soundkarte auszuwählen. Diese wird dort auch angezeigt und erkannt.

    Am einfachsten ist jedoch die Verwendung des jeweiligen Plugins (Justboom, IQaudIO, HiFiBerry). Dort kann die Soundkarte ausgewählt werden und alle notwendigen Einstellungen werden dann automatisch vorgenommen. Das funktioniert auch ohne Lizenz.

    in English:

    As std has already written, it is possible to use KODI and Squeezelite at the same time. It is not absolutely necessary to use a USB sound card. This also works with a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 and a HiFiBerry AMP

    Here is a Wiki entry to this topic:

    It is important to activate the tab „Use USB sound card“ and then set the corresponding sound card as a playback device in Kodi.
    In addition to this function, there are also relevant information. Please note this.

    @sven.hammen and @std

    The possibility to select a sound card in the Raspberry settings is deactivated if no valid license is entered. Without a license the sound card can be selected in the menu „Audioplayer“. In the advanced settings of the Squeezelite player, you have the option to select your own sound card. This is also displayed and recognized there.

    The simplest way is to use the respective plugin (Justboom, IQaudIO, HiFiBerry). There the sound card can be selected and all necessary settings are made automatically. This also works without a license.

    19. Dezember 2016 at 12:05 #24984

    Dear jnile1,

    Have you already deactivated Bluetooth, as Heiner had mentioned? According to HiFiBerry, this could also be a source of error.

    Best Regards

    Dear bumby7,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    „Is this whole thing going to self destruct when I exceed 2TB or does the M2P statement of a 2TB limit not consider the current technology “Advanced Format” drives?“

    No, that will not happen. It may now be possible to mount more than 2TB with the Raspberry Pi and Raspbian. But we haven’t a 4TB hard drive to test it.

    „Seems to be working fine, although I’m having an issue where one of the pi3 cores goes to 100% and streaming stops if I attempt to browse my library by Song, Artist or Album instead of Music Folders (using Android app Squeezer). The other 3 cores appear to be sitting idle, so it seems that either M2P or LMS isn’t taking advantage of the pi3’s quad-core processor. Suggestions to resolve this issue would be welcomed, since having streaming stop for any reason is not tolerable.

    This could be a problem with too low energy. If you use a external usb hard drive, you will need a extra power supply to let it work correctly. Additionally I recommend you to activate the Max2Play function „Max USB current“. This setting you can find in the Raspberry Settings of the Max2Play webinterface.

    Best Regard

    Hallo Tobias,

    du liegst richtig. Es lag an der Revision. Wir haben die Revision: 900093 im neusten Beta Update eingefügt. Nach dem du das Beta Update installiert hast, sollte dein Raspberry Pi Zero auch als solcher erkannt werden.

    Den Raspberry Pi Zero den ich getestet habe, hatte die Revision: 900092.

    Hallo Tedoius,

    Did you alreade reboot after expand the filesystem? If you already done this, there maybe was a failure while rebooting the system.

    Please try to enter this command in the terminal:

    sudo resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2

    13. Dezember 2016 at 18:27 #24843

    Hello repiuk,

    Sorry for the late response.

    The Bluetooth Plugin is to connect with Bluetooth speaker or stream via your smartphone music to the max2play device. Not to connect a bluetooth keyboard.

    If you want to use a cheap and small keyboard – try to search after a wireless keyboard with an additional dongle. This dongle you only need to stick at the Raspberry Pi and you can use the keyboard.

    Best Regards

    13. Dezember 2016 at 18:23 #24840

    Hallo [email protected],

    Entschuldige bitte die Verzögerung. Aktuell konzentrieren wir uns auf die neuen Soundkarten die wir mit Max2Play inzwischen Unterstützen.

    Max2Play unterstützt jedoch die Steuerung mittels eines FLIRC USB-Dongles ( z.B. diesem hier: Dieser kann dann auch konfiguriert werden um mit den Tasten verschiedene Optionen zu nutzen (z.B. Play und Stop).

    Beste Grüße

    13. Dezember 2016 at 14:31 #24823

    Dear Che422,

    After burn the image onto a sd-card you only have to stick the sd-card into the Raspberry Pi. This Raspberry Pi have to be connected with your home-network

    Then you wait a few seconds and enter in a browser of your choice – max2play/ . Now you should see the webinterface of max2play.

    Maybe this is a good help for you to start with Max2Play


    Take this starter guide, too.
