SignageStudio / Re: NaN Instead of Temps Below Zero

I also get NaN when temps are below zero.  We need a fix for this.

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Potential NEW Media Player?
« on: January 12, 2015, 06:39:30 AM »
I came across this just the other day.  It's apparently going to be available by the end of Q1-2015 and will sell for $150.  This could be a fantastic addition to inexpensive hardware offerings that don't use Android.

Here are some observations that, unfortunately, reveal some major shortcomings with the new scheduler. 

PLEASE read the following conversation I had with Tech Support.  I hope that you can understand what is trying to be articulated here.  If not, please, please contact me so I can try to explain.  THANK YOU!!!

14:44 Ray: The schedulder has been set up assuming that a sequence or timeline will play out for however long and by setting a higher priority on a certain day or time to interrupt and play something different and then revert back. This poses a huge problem for businesses that operate 24 hours a day and need lots of different timelines that are product/service time sensitive to play.
14:46 Stein S: im not sure i understand. so what are you not able to do with the current setup?
14:48 Ray: Ok, timeline 1 will play for two minutes and does not contain any time sensitive items. Timeline 2 is simply a Happy Thanksgiving and will need to play from now until midnight of Nov. 28. I create sequence 1 with timeline 1 and sequence 2 with timeline 2 (the Thanksgiving item).
14:49 Ray: I want to run sequence 1 from now until June of 2015 and run sequence 2 from now until Nov 28, 2014.
14:50 Stein S: do you need to play timeline 1 for two minutes then timeline 2after? and the two of them repeating one after the other until nov 28?
14:50 Ray: If each sequence is only two minutes in length for a total of four minutes, how do I add them to the scheduler so that they play one after the other every day until sequence 2 expires.
14:51 Ray: See, we really need a scheduler that acts more like a sequencer.
14:52 Ray: ...and allows many sequenced to be scheduled with start/stop days and time and then added to a playlist.
14:54 Stein S: we can only have sequences scheduled on specific dates and times
14:55 Ray: Ok, but what if the total time between two sequences is only 4 minutes in a 24 hour period. How do you get the two sequences to repeat one after the other for the whole 24 hour period.
14:57 Ray: This is where a playlist would make a lot of sense.
14:57 Stein S: what you need to do is add all the timelines in a single sequence
15:02 Ray: I see what you are suggesting. Add all timelines to seq 1 and schedule it until Nov. 28th so the Happy Thanksgiving plays until then. Then add seq 2 with all timelines except the Thanksgiving and schedule it to play from the 28th on.
15:11 Ray: ...NOW, try this with 10 items that expire at different times in a 10 day period. Talk about everything getting very difficult to keep track of. NOW, multiply this scenario by 20 different clients or campaigns. This is why I say that a sequence or timeline should have all of the start/stop time parameters and then be added to a playlist that plays them all out according to those time parameters. When one expires, it just drops off the playlist.

If your video do not include audio, try adding an audio track even if it silent.  Once I started rendering my videos (FLV with h264) with an audio track (silent), all of my video playback problems went away.  Windows doesn't care and plays either way.

Can't this be done by choosing "Create Abstract Account"?

What do you mean by Native Signage Players?

Enterprise users should have a way of saving custom scenes, screens and resources to a private Enterprise shared folder and then being able to access it for any account that is created under an Enterprise account.

Not having this ability severely limits the usability of MS and causes us to have to recreate our work for multiple accounts.  Please address this.

Hey MS,

It's been well over a year on this request.  You say it's coming.  What is the status?

Thanks, JMH.

Who do you purchase them from?

Hi, JMH. 

Where do you buythe Imito QX2 stick from?  While the signage player and controller are running, have you experienced any issue with Android OS or App notifications popping up that need an OK response?

« on: October 13, 2014, 07:58:48 PM »
Make sure you render with audio, even if it is a silent audio track.  I always use Freemake Video Converter and re-encode as .FLV with the h264 codec.  Make sure you render WITH audio checked and be sure to add a silent audio clip.

SignageStudio / Re: Studio 4.20.20 and 4.20.21 Not Working
« on: July 31, 2014, 06:20:37 PM »
After running sever tests in a remote desktop, it's been found that v4.15 works just fine but after an upgrade, logging into my Enterprise account poses no problem but launching a sub-account either through the Enterprise portal or not causes the Studio to lock up during loading.

While this may not pose a problem for everyone, apparently some computers are affected by this issue.  Stein said he would report it to the developers as a bug fix.  Being a vocal advocate of improved scheduling, I cannot even test the new feature because of this.

Please keep this post informed of progress.  Thank you.
