Error with no net connection present
« on: April 16, 2010, 05:04:33 PM »
The player should apparently work with no net connection present:

 " In fact, the SignagePlayer-desktop version searches for internet activity only during power up and when it searches to see if new content is available for it to download. If there is no internet connection at all at these stations, you can update your digital signage manually using a portable hard drive or flash memory device "

In fact, what we are seeing is when a player machine is restarted but with the net connection not present (ie unplugged, or machine moved to a net free location) the campaign will play once and then NOT loop to play again for maybe 10-15 minutes when it will then spring back into life.

If a net connection is added (wifi switched on etc) and the player restarted, the campaign will loop happily.

We'd like to sort this one so we can deploy a few short term standalone installs for one day event etc.

Yes, this is a known bug (Player restarts with no internet connection issue) and we will work to fix it as soon as we get release 2.0 out.

Thanks for the update,
