After exhausting my google-ing skills for today, I'm reaching out to this collective for some ideas...  Please don't hesitate to fire away... Looking to deploy solution to 5-10 small screens (15" vertical mount LCD?).  Chief content will be word docs (convert to pdf?) that are currently printed, tacked to bulletin board, edited and thrown out as needed for busy seasonal banquet operations.  Would like to allow for a couple images / jpegs / whatever for company logo, employee of the month, etc.

Limited technical knowledge among our content creators and uploaders (I'm comfortable within mediasignage, have 5+ yrs experience now), however I need to keep end-user operation as simple as "... Save As > network folder ", then have folder contents displayed on screen in slideshow format.  ideally like to have ability to use touch interface to swipe between content (word doc - banquet event orders).  Multiple kitchens with multiple dining rooms and multiple back-of-house areas, sometimes as many as 10 BEOs posted at a time, many times 1-2 at a time.  Can't wrap my head around a fairly simple PDF export to folder with slideshow like display.....this is where i'm stuck...

Thanks in advance for anything,

I'm using Enterprise edition solely for the ability to change a cafeteria menu display via a simple webpage interface.  Our business volume ebbs and flows day to day, week to week and can't be held to a set schedule. 

All is good to go for about 4-5 hours after hard reboot (had to install simple digital lamp timer to power cycle mediadroid units 1x/day).  After this period of time, mediadroid units again do not respond to requests sent from the simple control webpage.

The stations interface tab in signagestudio still allows the usual controls of the mediadroid (stop, play, update, screenshot), but the mediadroid simply stops responding to the javascript commands sent from the control webpage.

My question:  do the mediadroids/signageplayers need to have a firewall rule (forwarding port as a socket?) setup in order for them to "hear" the javascript commands for longer than a small amount of time?  I'm behind an AT&T 2wire gateway (accessing network via wireless), so I realize it would be make/model specific on a firewall time-out (in re unsolicited requests), however it seems as if there is a separate pipe through which the javascript commands flow instead of the port 80 socket for the signagecontroller.

Please help!  Really don't want to daisy-chain lamp timers for multiple hard reboots! (PS it would be great if the mediadroid units could respond to the signagestudio schedule reboot commands ;)
