Dissapointed in Mediadroid
« on: June 01, 2015, 02:54:43 PM »

I bought 3 MediaDroids to setup for customers, recieved them Friday and started Testing today and ran into a problem.

I have a scene that displays Stock graph from a web page....simple enough works fine on an Intel NUC but on Mediadroid it's not displaying correct size....and is displaying over other content. I was told by support that Android's have problems displaying HTML....if this is the case why are you guys selling can't sell something that works for most things but not for others.

This is what it looks like on a Intel NUC Notice the Stock Graph and Rss stock news is nice fitting in the box

Here is what it looks like on the MediaDroid

And here is Layout of the Scene in studio

So now I am going to have to send these back and be delayed and be out $80 for the shipping...btw how can you charge $80 for shipping 3 little boxes ground..../end rant

let me explain...
the HTML5 component on mediaDROIDX is GREAT... works perfectly.
What we don't support is HTML cropping on Android due to limitations of the OS.
One way to solve the problem is to get a live data feed of the stock chart, and simply use HTML/JS to create that chart and display it in HTML component.

Hope that helps.
