    Hi,

    Try this:

    # vi /home/pi/MagicMirror/css/custom.css
    :
    :
    .MMM-RTSPStream .innerWrapper {
      border-style: none;
    }
    
    # pm2 restart MagicMirror
    

    I would still try to have the video window and the module window overlap each other, as it perhaps may influence the position and aligning of other modules.

    Sorry I am still a Linux/Raspberry noob so I couldn’t figure out how to edit custom.css with that script.
    However this is how it looks right now:

    Last but not least thank you very much for your support! 💪🏼

  • @Cr4z33,

    You can put the code end the end of the file, so after the body stuff.
    If you are not familiar with vi, you can use nano:

    $ nano /home/pi/MagicMirror/css/custom.css
    

    I have made some changes in the body part, to change the screen margins, etc.

    body {
           margin: 10px;
           height: calc(100% - 10px);
           width: calc(100% - 10px);
    }
    


  • @evroom a-ha alright thanks!



  • Im not sure if the request is solved or not but could this be something that can help you along the way? 🙂

  • @el97 maybe it could help the OP, but certainly not me as I already have a TV system (Vu+ Duo²) to be used. 😉



  • @pbrunson I read your post and it peaked my interest … the other guys have it easy with the Linux sat boxes that can stream directly Like Enigma Vu+… They brought me back memories of the DreamBox i had when i was living in Europe 🙂 i used to stream all content i could get to my office.

    Anyhow here in USA i have a media center server centrally located that has a TV tuner… an internal Hauppauge card, of which i was only using its AV input to catch a quad view feed of my security cameras. Than through an instance of Yawcam (https://yawcam.com/) web-server I will take that tuner input and i would display that though MMM-iFrame on the MM.
    (first of all it took me forever to find out what the rtsp streams of my SecCam DVR were but once i found them than i did not want to clog my RPi into processing those individual rtsp streams so the quad view works just fine)

    So your post of watching the news actually pushed me to utilize the actual tuner part of the card and stream the news also to my mirror in the morning (granted that there would be no channel changes but whatever you have left it at from the previous use)

    Although Yawcam would let you stream the tuner feed just fine (and for my case there is also a way to run two instances of it one for the tuner and one for an additional USB AV capture card i ordered through Amazon where i would now connect my security cameras quad view) … the catch is that there is no audio support.

    But what do I know…by accident i found this on youtube (https://www.contaware.com/contacam.html) it has audio support and lets you use multiple AV inputs on one instance and has a web-server so you can port to it for MM iframes.
    I have not tried it yet, cause my usb card for the cameras has not arrived yet, so i may be speaking ahead of myself but i am confident it will work.

    Sorry for the long rambling but i think it is an exciting addition to MagicMirror and a great idea on your part.
    I hope my findings help you just a bit.

  • @evroom by the way did you find by chance a way to switch channel (i.e by voice command) with the addition of another module? 😃



  • @Cr4z33, no, sorry, didn’t pursue this as I do not need such a function myself.



  • @evroom alright no problem. 😉

    Maybe my new module is something for you:
    MMM-Dreambox
