Hello I am facing the same problem on my Android  4.4.2 playing  SignagePlayer 5.0.4 and SignageWatchdog 1.0 (not the Signage controller). All screens are going black every day.

Hope someone can help.

Hi.
Yeah, same with Windows PCs. For example, when internet is disconnected and no connection is present, the player can play cached resources.
But, when Internet connection is limited or it keeps dropping and eventually re-connecting, the screen goes black. When Internet connection is back and in good status, the cached resources are back on screen.

Solutions?
