Does anyone know how to prevent the weather graphics from "refreshing" every three seconds on the World Weather scenes? The graphics of the sun and clouds appear, then disappear, then re-appear every three seconds or so. They are the JSON item graphics.

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Video Card Recommendation
« on: January 02, 2014, 12:53:11 PM »
Does anyone have a video card recommendation for the following setup:

Dell Inspiron 560 desktop (medium tower) with an on-board Intel GMA X4500 video card (1600 x900)
One HDMI output converted to RJ45 (Cat6) (for distance) converted back to HDMI going to three HDTVs
Output resolution wanted: 1920 x 1080 HD

The stock card is 1600 x 900 which is too small for the monitors. However, I've tried using aftermarket cards like GEFORCE GE 610 which work for a little while then flicker and finally die. I've also used higher-end cards and they don't work at all ( the 300W power supply on the Dell is too weak possibly?).

So I guess I'm asking for a recommendation on a video card that can drive two outputs, one at 1600 x 900, one at 1920 x 1080.

I saw this post pertaining to my issue:,1597.msg5455.html#msg5455

We've had this bug since we started using the weather guide. Did anyone ever find a solution for this? Can someone recommend a different weather data source that does not have this issue?


SignagePlayer / Weather02 Component Not Updating Names of Days Correctly
« on: February 25, 2012, 02:15:48 PM »
I have a very strange issue. The Weather02 component that comes stock with MediaStudio worked great for about a year. All of a sudden (all things being equal/unchanged) the titles of the days will not update. The day names stay the same and do not change as each day passes. However, it appears that the actual weather data (forecast and temperature) is updating correctly.

Even more strange, if I change the zip code in the component properties, the days change - but not always to the correct days. Even when I pick a zip code that displays the correct current and future days, they do not update for the next day. Its like the day titles are static.

Today, I played with the settings (changed the zip code and recached the player) and now the component is showing no data whatsoever.

Any thoughts?
