Project with PeppyMeter Screensaver Plugin for VOLUMIO v2.9xx and 3.0xx buster

Peppy is not released/approved for V3 and causes DSP to fail.
If you need DSP, uninstall Peppy. Until the author of Peppy finds time to update the plugin.

I’ve been reading back and forth trough this project, amazing what effort is put in by the designers of the images and plugin.
I searched the forum for a topic on what displays are the best and where to buy them. So I appologize if this is not the correct topic for this question.
What are the best touch diplays?
What about resolution?
I like this one:
But is it easy to built in? I see that m4sta2k has it standing on a desk naked.
Or is a 10" 1920x1080 a better option?

Not a discussion for what is better, It’s what you prefer. But sticking with standard resolutions, will give you more benefits using already designed images.
If you take a different resolution, you either need to be nice to Gelo5, as he seems the only one willing to do this without having a similar screen. Or get crafty with Photoshop or and draw them yourself. And share them offcoarse. :slight_smile:

But is it easy to built in?

  • No, The “landscape” screens have a very small rim, so you need proper equipment if you want to carve an opening in your cabinet about 0.8mm margin to cut or saw… I ended with glue it on my cabinet.
  • 2nd they keep on making the same design error. They’ve located the connections on the outer skirt, so you always need a cabinet that stick out for 3 cm above the screen. They expect that the rPi can deliver enough power for the screen, which is a dreamfull state.
    The most right one is the power connector, which you can’t bypass with the delivered connector. As the rPi can’t deliver the power. You’ll need a 2nd supply.

Great it’s working on RPI2 , thanks :grinning:

@Wheaten, thanks
I already noticed that Gelo5 was doing all the heavy lifting for the graphics. He is amazing. And the results are beautiful.
That’s why I want to stick to what’s already available.
I suppose most of the used displays are waveshare? That is what I found when I ask my friend Google :wink:.

@2aCD - once again all forum members, thank you for your work and this plugin.

@peppy.player - it was thanks to your peppymeter that the whole plugin was created. Thank you!

One condition: a minimum monitor of 7 inches. You will not see anything on the smaller ones.
Which skin to scale?

I really like Klanghelm an Accuphase…

I installed all modules according to the instructions from 2aCD.
All steps work, I have the VU meter with the test script.
But as soon as I install peppymeter, the USB drive is lost with all my music.
If I select home, library, screen stays empty. If there is something in the queue, before installing peppymeter, I can press play on a track in the queue but nothing happens.
I do see the VU meters, randomly.
I started from a fresh installation v 3.251. I downloaded all modules from the links this topic.
I have a RPI4 with 4 GB of memory, no wireless, cables ethernet connection.
I have the pi connected through HDMI to a Eizo monitor for the tests.
As soon as I unstall peppypeter, my library comes back, without a reboot.

Easter is already here. I made a test version for 800x480 resolution. I can’t test because I don’t have a monitor - just pure math!
Copy everything to:
/ data / plugins / miscellanea / peppy_screensaver / peppymeter / custom_1 (800x480)
meters.txt contains original skins + my skins (test) (1.5 MB)


tried them (800x480) and Wow this looks very nice and it looks like the alignment is also reasonable and I think the whole can go more to the right.

@Gelo5 thank you very much :smiley:

Play the disc with a long track title. From the file, not from the radio.
And what to give right?

this is while spotify connect is playing.
I don’t have any music on a drive at the moment.

Looking at the picture - I made the meters.txt correction. Check now. (There aren’t many items when you play the radio) (1.9 KB)
