    Hi Mario,
    thank you for detailed steps. I did follow these but it ended up the same. The fact of having two Bluealsa happens once I install BT plugin and then (the second) when I enable the BT speaker below in the plugin.
    However, I managed to make it work, however it is a bit weird. When I stop Squeezelite service, the BT starts playing flawlessly. It is interesting, because on the other RPI I do not have to unload Squeezelite to be able to play over Bluetooth.

    Thank you anyway for your help.

    Hello Heiner.
    I am resurrecting this topic here a bit. I am also trying to expand the functionality by actually sending IR commands.
    Is there in the API any possibility to to call that IRSEND command via HTTP to trigger it remotely?
    For instance:
    irsend SEND_ONCE remote key

    In the MAX2PLAY GUI under Settings, there is the LIRC for IR-Support existing for IN and OUT. So I am wondering, how the OUT can be used. Having this covered in the API would be very welcomed.
    Thank you.

    Hi Heiner,
    many thanks for checking with the devs and letting me know. I kind of expected such result, as it would require some additional development (for instance command line option to allow handling volume controls externally – forward these as external commands using specific config). Maybe as a feature request for the future 🙂

    And yes, I am able to control the volume using home automation. But still, I miss the user comfort of apps like iPeng.
    Thank you.

    Hi Heiner,
    I am not quite sure I follow your recommendation. Well, I understand your suggestion and I read other posts in this forum related to the HW volume controls (https://www.max2play.com/en/forums/topic/volume-settings/).
    I have been playing with the command line options, and your suggested -o hw:1 -V Digital works the way that it disables the ability co control volume over the app (is kept constantly at 100%). But listen, the HiFiBerry Digi+ has no DAC nor AMP that could be controlled.

    HiFiBerry:~ $ amixer -c1
    Simple mixer control 'Tx Source',0
      Capabilities: enum
      Items: 'S/PDIF RX' 'AIF'
      Item0: 'AIF'
    HiFiBerry:~ $ amixer -c1 scontrols
    Simple mixer control 'Tx Source',0
    HiFiBerry:~ $

    My question was if there is a way how to use the app to control the volume (for instance iPeng), but have every volume changes forwarded to an external AMP device over HTTP request, or LIRC.
    The outcome would be that whenever someone tries to change the volume in the app, the actual volume adjustments would happen on the external amplifier. Max2Play would need to forward any requests for volume changes to either http commands (which would need to be set somewhere for each AMP manufactures, for instance DENON http://your_receiver_address/MainZone/index.put.asp?cmd0=PutMasterVolumeSet/-45.0), or to LIRC output (again using config for the given AMP user has attached).

    Hi Heiner,
    re this volume topic, is there a way how to pass the squeezebox volume commands to a hifi receiver or stereo amp? My setup contains HiFiBerry Digi+ connected via tosslink to Stereo amplifier (Yamaha). I am able to control the volume of the stereo amp using network commands, so the ideal scenario would be to leave the Digi+ output to full (fixed) volume, and pass the volume control to the Yamaha amplifier.
    That would mean a command stored somewhere in a config which would act as Volume+ and Volume- to trigger the volume changes whenever a user adjusts volume from iPeng or other Squeezebox app.

    Or alternatively, to be able to trigger the volume changes using LIRC functionality, and again bypass the SW volume adjustments.
    Any thoughts?
    Thank you.
