Do you use Pi 3?
Have you tried to refresh the screen after selecting the network?
I'll try to rotate 5" screen and let you know the result.

Best regards

I was able to make UI show up after rotation but it doesn't work when you click on icons in the Home screen. The code needs to be changed to make it working. So unfortunately the answer is - the vertical layout is not supported right now.

Here is the new project based on the Peppy Player. The project name is 'Dietrich' after 'DIgital TRansport. This is the ancient German name which means - 'Ruler of the people' ;)

The device consists of:
- Power supply +12V 12.5A for external hard drives and for the power switch LED
- Power Supply +5V 10A for the Raspberry Pi 4, USB Hub and display
- Raspberry Pi 4. One USB2 connected to the touchscreen. Another USB2 connected to the back panel. One USB3 connected to the USB Hub. Another USB3 connected to the back panel. LAN connected to the back panel. One HDMI connected to the display. Another HDMI connected to the back panel.
- USB3 Hub 10 port
- Waveshare 7.9" touchscreen
- 8 Relay Module to switch on/off 12V for external hard drives
- MCP23017 module to control relays through I2C
- ULN2803 sink driver transistor array

The device can work as:
- Audio player with USB output using hard drives connected to it.
- Audio player with USB output using NAS mounted to it.
- Video player with HDMI output (currently not supported in Peppy Player)
- Serve as a NAS for external hard drives connected to it.
- Streamer.

The pictures were taken with Peppy Player running on device (VU Meter screensaver).
The support for switching on/off hard drives from UI will be added to the Peppy Player software in one of the next releases.
