I thought i'd add my 2p's worth...

been testing since yesterday, no issues with wifi, tried in two locations, the only issue i had was at home i had to set a static ip, dhcp kept going round in a loop but to be honest i didnt have the patience to wait 10-15 minutes!.
I've tried the taskbar hide app with no problems, there is a setting (disabled by default) to set it running at bootup. From what i can gather this unit comes already 'rooted', i just downloaded superus from the playstore and ran that, allowed the taskbar hide program root access and jobs a goodun.
also downloaded autostart and added signageplayer as the only app.
seems to work fine, doesnt like flash files at all, they do play but it kills the processor. also tried a mini kiosk app as well, it didnt like that either. but to be honest for £50 what do you expect, its a low end player to a low end solution, you want anything fancy then upgrade to a mediabox.
for commercial reasons we will most likely use a mediadroid, but for testing and immediate applications the mk808 is a fine little box.

all that is needed is a way to get the signage controller on it and get rid of the boot up images "Google Tv" and the android boot loader image and we'll have a fab little unit.

I have recent;y purchased the MK808. installed both Hide Bar, Startup Manager and SuperSU works perfectly however the I cant get the monitor to be in full screen.

Can anyone confirm? The Hide bar apps just hide the icon not the bar itself. that's my experience with MK808.

I think it depends on the ROM you will be using.  :D

I just got my MK808 today and I installed FullScreen from Google Play and it works very well.  No need to root or do anything.

play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.tsorn.FullScreen

The above app works intermitently. I removed and used the Start Up Manger app. (Search in Google play)
You can change the settings to stop apps, at start up aswell as start them up i.e Signagemedia and FullScreen.
Im still trying to locate the best way in creating a timer for the screen to turn off and on at given timers.
Any ideas?

Old topic to end up in.

I would have thought it would have been fixed my now, but just tried the Signageplayer app on my Android device and till there are the menu bar.

I would categorize this as a MediaSignage Glitch

it is one line of code that needs to be atted to the sigangeplayer to hide the menubar.

This is just poor programming, that you have to make a lot of workarounds to make the app work as intended.

It dosent even disable the screen saver so after a short time of not touching the screen it turns off.

Should be solved by DigitalSignage for sure!

Also disable the screensaver!

Get Fullscreen and Autostart from Playstore  - that solved our problem.

I can't get fullscreen and Autostart from the app store... the hole point is I don't want to setup a lot of dummy google accounts to make this work.
It should work out of the box and we should be able to deploy the player via our MDM (got the apk package for the Mediaplayer)

ShowIT Media, what MDM software are you using for your android devices?
