Android Signage Player for mini pc UG802
« on: November 04, 2012, 09:18:03 AM »
Hello. I use android player version 4.0.93 ( newbielink:http://www.digitalsignage.com/html/direct_download.html [nonactive]),
and I noticed some color distorsion. I think the displaying of vector graphics and .swf content cause some minor issues... For example scaling, rotating, fading contents cause some purple, green or gray shadows to show up on screen. 

Just wonder if anyone have experienced this problem and what might be the cause?
Admins, does mediaDROID ZX has this problem?

Thx!

P.S.
I will try to upload some pictures of the problem I have mentioned...

Friday I just received my mediaDROID ZX, and am testing it.
I've found that some scenes show color distortion, as you can see in

GOOD - Scene shown in Windows 7 PC

BAD -Scene shown in mediaDROID ZX

The scene has a background image .png and standard weather components from the SignageStudio

Also, when applying an effect (e.g. shadow) to a Rich Text component, it shows very strangely on the screen

Thanks, conexia, you just saved me an effort. That is exactly what i was talking about!

I must say that I did't expect a mediaDROID ZX to have this problem (obviously not optimised enough). :(
Hope someone have solution for this. It looks so ugly.

The admin says it is a bug of the Adobe Air 3.5.0.290

Have the beta of the AIR 0.520, I tried to install, but signage player do not recognize the new version, showing 0.290 .

This is actually since the droid zx ships with beta Adobe AIR 3.5 (since we had to take advantage of the performance gain of AIR 3.5).
Adobe will fix this soon with final release of AIR 3.5 at which time we will release final version of the APK.
As long as you registered with Google Play, you will receive the updates automatically over the air.

Regards,

Sean.

I've just installed new version Adobe Air BETA 3.5.0.520 on my mediaDROID ZX
The Android SignageController does not see the version id, it still sees it as 3.5.0.290 (Other Windows 7 PC show correct Air BETA 3.5.0.520)
and the Air BETA 3.5.0.520 does not fix the color distortion problem.
Hope this will be fixed soon
On the other side, the mediaDROID ZX has beeen working for more than 48 hours without getting hot

But, did you know that on GooglePlay users can only install version 4.0.88 which doesn't work on UG802. Only RSS works fine on that version of player, everything other is BLACK. In order to play the other content on it, I had to download the player from the direct link version 4.0.93 and install it from SD card? I just want to say taht UG802 users can't update online from GooglePlay. At least not for now! :(

...What the version of player you use? I used the version of playstore 4.0.88 and the same thing happens. When I used the version of direct download 4.0.93 all works fine.

Direct download APK: newbielink:http://www.digitalsignage.com/html/direct_download.html [nonactive]

Thank you very much version 4.0.93 works! I don't know why do they put version 4.0.88 because it's not OK!?

I have not tested before.

And the problem was not solved.

Tested in version 4.0.93 using the latest version of Adobe AIR via Play Store.

You released a new APK with the latest version of Adobe AIR?
