Does anyone know how to successfully change the boot screen on the Mediadroid.
I get to Penguins on the first screen then a out of date looking 'Signage Player'.
It would be good if DS could give us instructions on how to change.

We also would like to reverse the way the orientation screen changes on the vertical Mediadroid.
It's in vertical/portrait mode but the orientation is to the left not the right.

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Will it work with Atom?
« on: April 11, 2013, 10:50:47 AM »
We have 24 screens to roll out in the next few weeks in 8 different locations.
I've read in the forums on the 'No Nos' for using a Atom processor based pc but it seems that problems only seem to occur when using above and the beyond the basic standard.
We however will (for this client) only be showcasing images using the catalogue component and 4-5 flash videos, each no longer then 30-40 seconds. This will be in 3 time lines (5mins each) totalling 15minutes and placed in a sequence to continually loop on each screen, with screen sizes of 21 inch's.

Could we get away with running on a small form factor pc with an Intel Atom Dual-core 1.8 GHz processor and an Intel GMA Graphics?
We already have the mediadroids but the inability with remote access and power saving scheduling could be a issue with these particular locations.

Yes, works well plays all content seamlessly.
The Micro HDMI cable port seems a little loose and can fallout at time, a gentle squeeze with a pair of pliers does the trick.

hmmm, all has been noted.
We to are just looking at inexpensive and efficient alternatives without having to effect the quality.
The mediaplayers are slightly out of our budget and shipping/custom charges are also an added expense to consider for us.

It all depends on the android device your using.
We've managed to find a device that does both orientations, but it keeps reverting back to landscape on reboot.
You will need a programmer that is very very very familiar with the android platform to achieve.
But I don't think its hard just time consuming, as each device will need to be reprogrammed and debugged.
What device are you using?

Can someone explain more on how we do this.
we would like to allow our clients to download the app under our name with our logo.
the same for PC/Mac installation.
Not asking for the full details on how to code, but just need to know that the above links provided our up to date and is all we need.

I think we may have found a easy solution.
I will update shortly ;)

Anoop, you need to mess around with the apps settings.
The black bar will go when you check one of the boxes in settings.
To remove the arrow in the corner, simply adjust the opacity to zero.
The only issue we have so far is with it not rotating to portrait view with our screens.
None of the rotational apps work and we've tried most of them.
Anyone know a solution let me know, but now we will settle for the media droid vertical model.

Normal functioning monitors HDMI/DVI inputs with USB.
They power on and off as normal when connected with pc. What would be the difference @ Criley?
The solution i think you maybe thinking would work, but only with monitors.
That ok with monitors but some screens are LED TVs and this will only switch on to standby mode.

What we are basically trying to achieve is not to have any interaction from the staff at several locations, to turn the screens on and off. We want to have a least a 7-30 days programming schedule just for the screens to turn off and on.
We have got our heads around scheduling the signage content by using timelines, we are just stuck at programming a timer schedule  to power off and on the screens.
We would also want to be able to vary the times to accommodate holidays,i.e XMAS, News year day etc.

I think you might need to use the Monster Signage API to achieve this.
