Open source Digital Signage / studioDashboard adnet reports api
« Last post by DS4Egeoisystems on April 27, 2017, 08:54:14 AM »
Hi, we are working over the source code from https://github.com/born2net/studioDashboard and we would need to make some changes to the adnet api. Where is the adnet reports api located?

Thanks in advance.

1. Is there any known problem with using a USB GPS Receiver on the PI?
you can use any GPS device and the JavScript send will remain the same.

2. Is there a recommended USB GPS Receiver for this? An accuracy of <5m and cold start of say 30secs is fine.
I don't have specific hw to recommend but any will be just fine!

3. Is there any changes to be made to the getgps.js script?
script remains the same as it is not related to the hw at all.

4. Will the cgps command work with getting GPS coordinates from USB instead of UART?
all remains the same.

The tutorial recommends using a PI2, but that model is outdated and does not have built-in Wifi. Also, according to the Adafruit GPS HAT article, it will not work on the PI3 (other articles mention some workaround). Note that the image from DigitalSignage assumes PI2 and Wifi AP+Routing.
For data link reliability, I am thinking of connecting the Raspberry to the mediaDROIDX with an Ethernet cable and Eth/USB-OTG converter, instead of Wifi AP. Is my assumption correct that it will make no difference for GPS
correct, no difference.

6. Even if using Ethernet cable, I still need Wifi Routing capability for media updates from the Cloud server. What is recommended to get this on the PI2?
Best to google for that.

7. Since I intend to use a USB GPS Receiver, is it safe to use the PI3 anyway as it has built-in Wifi that can be configured for Routing? Can I still use the same Raspbian image from DigitalSignage for this?
Yes you can, our script just uses tcp/ip to send command to the player, it doesn't matter the origin or device its running on.

8. Can I use a Raspberry PI Zero W instead (and also use the same Raspbian image from DigitialSignage)?
yes you can

SignageStudio / SendEvent triggering a SWF to play
« Last post by Lightning on April 24, 2017, 08:29:28 AM »
Hello, strange question here - we use animated tab headers to indicate what "page" the sign is currently on, would it be possible using begin events that get played whenever the screen changes to send a message to a common-channel SWF telling it to play a specific animation or play animation in general?

Thanks.

Open source Digital Signage / Re: WebService to get Station List
« Last post by mayte on April 23, 2017, 06:18:49 AM »
Yes dashboard API is for Enterprise only. StudioLite is for all users, I am looking for sendCommand.ashx command or something like Station status list:

http://jupiter.signage.me/WebService/getStatus.ashx?user=my_user&password=my_pass

This webservice is open to all users, I can seen the Webserver command list (http://jupiter.signage.me/WebService/)  but I just cant to find a description for each one.

Regards,

Hi there!

I am building a location-based media system for a vehicle by using GPS, Raspberry PI, and mediaDROIDX player. So I watched the tutorial from DigitalSignage a few times (... video_tutorials.html?videoNumber=locationBasedPro), and also Googled around to understand how this all should be done.

I want to configure the mediaDROIDX in a local LAN to get the GPS coordinates from the Raspberry (sendLocalCommand), which will in turn get media updates from the Cloud server when the vehicle is back in Wifi range at the home base.

The Raspbian image made available by DigitalSignage assumes attaching an Adafruit Ultimate GPS HAT to a Raspberry PI2, which in turn will be the Wifi Access Point for the media player and the Wifi Router for media updates from the Cloud server.

GPS
Instead of attaching an Adafruit GPS HAT to the Raspberry, I want to use a USB GPS Receiver on a 1-2m cable such as the MG-220 or Columbus V800. These devices also send data as per NMEA protocol the same as the Adafruit Ultimate GPS HAT from the tutorial, but via USB and not UART.

5. For data link reliability, I am thinking of connecting the Raspberry to the mediaDROIDX with an Ethernet cable and Eth/USB-OTG converter, instead of Wifi AP. Is my assumption correct that it will make no difference for GPS coordinate data transfer, for example via sendLocalCommand? Any recommended Ethernet/USB-OTG converter?
6. Even if using Ethernet cable, I still need Wifi Routing capability for media updates from the Cloud server. What is recommended to get this on the PI2?
7. Since I intend to use a USB GPS Receiver, is it safe to use the PI3 anyway as it has built-in Wifi that can be configured for Routing? Can I still use the same Raspbian image from DigitalSignage for this?

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Connecting to network
« Last post by Ethanderbvorp on April 21, 2017, 01:17:11 AM »
I have folders shared over the network from a Windows 7 machine.

My laptop running Windows XP can see them and display the files.

In files, my Archos G9 displays the name of the machine, but when entering the user and password the same as the laptop user it just displays "Please wait while reloading shared folder" and has been for about five minutes.

Connection to my Linux machine on the same network is within a few seconds.

Is there something I need to do to allow the Archos to connect to the Windows 7 machine?
