« on: October 05, 2021, 03:33:23 AM »

SignageStudio / erratic behavior creating scenes
« on: October 04, 2021, 06:05:50 PM »
I've noticed that when I'm creating and editing scenes, weird and unpredictable stuff happens. For instance, I added a rich text component to a new scene, and when I click the middle vertical anchor box (in properties), the text vanishes from the scene stage. The text still shows in the properties panel but not on the scene stage. Sometimes it reappears if I save the changes, but sometimes not. Anyone else see this happen?

Another thing is the often position of components shown in the scene stage in the studio looks nothing like what it looks like on the tv screen. I find I have to play around and constantly upload the changes to see the actual look on the tv.

Anyone else have these problems and more importantly, have suggestions to improve it?

Frustrating. It's been a couple months now.

No reply? I guess that means techs are still working on it.

The people in chat say this is currently being worked on by the dev team. I'm wondering if you have an anticipated completion date?

Thank you for your descriptive explanation. I understand now. I'll find another source. Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply, but is this answer true?
Isn't this how it is done in the xml video tutorial?

For example, in the tutorial, the xml items are specified by their attributes (@name, @price, @resource), and in the food menu scene the xml player calls the burger by it's attribute name (Burger.(@name=="ChickenBurger")

Isn't this the same?
Thanks for your time.

SignageStudio / xml data won't display
« on: August 29, 2021, 10:51:29 PM »
I am creating a weather scene using xml items and xml players, similar to the video tutorial example. The problem is I can't get the temperature ("air_temp") data to display, not even in the Studio.

Here is the web xml file I'm using - it is auto-generated from the government website --- {colon} inserted because outside urls not permitted

The Items Path I'm using in the XML Players scene is:

and in the XML items scene, the Field Name is:

I've tinkered around and was able to get other data to display but the temperature won't.

I talked to the chat team about this on Friday and they said, " The xml file that you have is complicated to load with the xml component. If it was a simpler xml file we would be able to read the values and output it", but like I said, I am able to get some data to show from it so I think it should work.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you topangan - I sent you an email a couple days ago.

I'm having the same problem - super frustrating. I'm interest in your workaround too.
I'm new in the forums - how do we send PMs?

Thought I'd reply since I had the problem too very recently. After days of troubleshooting, we determined the problem was the mini android boxes we were using. Switched to the mediadroidx box and the problem went away.

This is still a persistent error. I used to have the weather on my stations but discontinued it when a client told me the temperatures were never correct - and last night I tried it again on the mediadroidx box, which never had a weather scene displayed on it before (thus eliminating the idea that the problem is caused by caching) and the forecast temperatures were off by 30 degrees F. It said our overnight lows were going to be freezing (32 F) but the real forecast says 60 F.

Thanks. I will and then I'll post the solution here in the forum so others can benefit from this discussion in the future.

Update - I just noticed that the display flashes the transition between videos in a timeline and then goes black again. Weird. This is on my test player and it is a very short campaign. It's been running perfectly for several days but after I added a png resource and added it to a scene is when the problem occurred. I removed the scene hoping it would fix it but it didn't. Help.
