    Hello Sirkingchase,

    On a RPi3B & and a couple RPi4s , I’m using the button, „Upgrade Kodi to Latest Version“ which is Kodi 18.7 20200612.
    I do not know where to find .deb repos for „Choose Kodi/XBMC-Package by http-link (package must be .deb) for Update:“

    The status of the project started over Christmas on the RPi3B with 7″ Raspberry Touchscreen. (I’m not favouring any OS like Buster.) The touchscreen intermittently (anywhere from 3 minutes to 20 minutes) goes black, similar to no power to the LCD screen while playing either Jivelite or Kodi Music.

    After installing new Raspberry Bullseye (Kodi) or LibreElec Kodi onto the RPi3B then the black screen stopped; however, these apps are difficult to emulate the quality of a Max2Play because Video always directs to the HDMI port and away from the LCD Touchscreen. I have not figured how to configure the Kodi video to the LCD and audio to HDMI. The configuration appears to be a script not a simple setting that is used in M2P.

    I’m stuck with no solutions for the LCD or for the latest Kodi on M2P. I’m now leaning towards using Headless – Kodi Web Interface on Raspberry OS to control the music players into stereos. I haven’t tried the RPi4’s on the LCD because the touchscreen case is for a RPi3.

    Note: Bullseye on RPi3 also doesn’t boot properly into the LCD unless „force_turbo=1“ is added to „config.txt“

    Your reply gives me some hope that there M2P will support new OSs, KODI and RPi5s?

    I’m sorry if you are unable to operate M2P any longer.
    Why not release and evolve M2P onto Open Source?

    I have been supporting the M2P platform.
    You should not be accepting money if development or support has stopped.

    Would you please let us know either way?

    This Christmas, I’m faced with M2P lack of support or move on for KODI.
    I’m going to discover if the music organization and playback is better than LMS?

    I never thought I’d stop recommending M2P.
    M2P did get me to stop using Windows.

    Thank you so much M2P!

    Hello, Autostart Squeezelite takes 1 minute to autostart after exiting from KODI. If I start Squeezelite manually using the GUI web interface then Squeezelite starts immediately. I have been using RPi3 no issues for 3 years. Issues started on RPi4.

    Operating Version 2.53 on RPi4B 4GB
    Squeezelite Max2Play v1.0.3 based on v1.8.7-999, Copyright 2012-2015 Adrian Smith, 2015-2017 Ralph Irving.
    KODI V18.7
    SqueezeServer 7.9

    Thanks, Rod

    Thank You grimmt for a solution!
    I also support M2P and was disappointed to find this basic feature broken in Pi 4
    I gave up on M2P and stopped spreading the word about the greatness of M2P because I was embarrassed.
    I moved over to a different OS but I have returned because of YOU!

    I also raised this issue APRIL 1 2020 AT 6:20 #48370.
    In forum [Announce] New Max2Play Image for Raspberry Pi 4.

    I’m a big fan of M2P RPi3. Before my question, I would like to share how to cool the Pi4 to 32 degrees Celsius.

    I use a heatsink and fan. The aluminium heatsink is 10mm finned and 3mm larger around the surface area of the cpu device. The epoxy glue is J-B Weld 8280 Original. The fan is a 80 mm Noctua NF-A8 5V. A 10 Ohm thermistor SG42 part# to additionally slow the fan. A jigsaw was used to cut circle out of the top and drilled some holes to mount the fan on a NESPI case. The project was 1.5 hours.

    **My question for RPi4.** On my TV (RPi3 version 2.50 works fine), however for RPi4 Jivelite does not autostart after Exiting KODI. The display is flashing the M2P command prompt. Stop and then Start Jivelite displays the Jivelite GUI again until Start and Exit KODI.

    I’ve tried several combinations of RPi4 versions of OS, KODI, Jivelite, and combinations of autostart for OS, Squeezelite, KODI, and Jivelite.

    I’ve searched the Forum for advice but haven’t found it, but also thinking I’m the only one with this issue because somebody would have posted for support. Thanks for your support.
