Hi,

I am starting to develop a box similar with the one proposed by @lausiv on this topic. I also have a Pi2AES/Rpi4 and I bought the same display used here.
The issue now is how to configure the Volumio 3 SW.
Based on what I understood. I need to perform the following steps:

  1. Install the Touch Display plugin and enabled it? - OK

  2. Enable the contemporary_advanced plugin in the plugin section.
    under settings you could alter many options. I could not find this plugin, where does it reside?

Sorry, if it is very basic, but I am start to learn.

Thanks by your support.

this plugin will alter the layout and many more but no vu meters

this plugin will give you the vu meters

@dvo

Thanks by your support and prompt response.

I tried to install the Contemporary_Advanced plugin. However, I received an error of No matching version - no installation possible!

I used this link to copy the file:
wget https://github.com/2aCD-creator/volumio-plugins/raw/gh-pages/plugins/volumio/armhf/miscellanea/contemporary_advanced/contemporary_advanced.zip

Did I make some mistake?

we have to wait for a bug fix in the skins before we can update it again.
there seems a bug of in classic or contemporary so that we have to wait till the next release.

Hi guys, instead of contemporary plugin on volumio 3 I recommend and prefer “now playing” plugin (which is default plugin). You can use your own background or track cover as background. It is easy to configure by clicking settings and has various options (blur, fade etc). Here you go, how it can looks on volumio3.

Hi, of course I’ll try to help, but first please give me info about volumio version You use.

I am trying to apply the Now Playing Plugin.

However as a newbie, I am having bad results. For sure I am doing something wrong,

Issues verified.

a) I can only see the Now Playing 0.1.4. When I tried to uninstall and install again later, I could not see the 0.1.4 version.
b) My display resolution is 1920x480. I could not see this resolution to select.
c) Is it necessary to run the Touch Display plugin and then the Now Playing.

Any help?

Best Regards,

Hi,

I could make it work. It was necessary to edit the userconfig file with @lausiv settings.

Thanks @lausiv and @patrickkfkan by the nice work.
