Thanks for sharing this information...
just to make sure I understand my vulnerability, are all of the media boxes that i purchased from digital signage setup to get this update automatically?  Or do I need to set them up to get these types of updates automatically?  Or is this a one off patch scenario?

Thanks for posting this...I have been struggling with this problem for a while.
Does this timezone change impact the player if I am using the scheduling functionality for playback of the general campaign or any other time-based features?

Just realized that there is no volume control for videos that are pulled into the application externally.  For example, you can use dropbox or google drive to pull in videos but you cannot control the volume.  Having a volume slider similar to what is available when you import a video directly into the application would be great.

Thank you for updating this...Up to now, I had to use another paid weather service due to the customer complaining about the weather being stale many times.  I look forward to more improvements and bug fixes!

I have been using teamviewer for years and have not seen that before.  what version of teamviewer are you using?  Do you have other players with the same setup with the same problem?

To add to this thread, my experience has been somewhat similar.  I have not had any problems with a hard wired internet connection.  If I am using wireless, that is when the issue pops up so my comments are strictly for wireless...

If there is no wireless internet connection available at all when the signage player starts up (if the campaign is already loaded), it plays to the campaign as expected.  If you are using a wireless internet connection (including any previous connections that have been saved) and the connection is poor or signal is weak or has some other trouble, the player struggles to start playing the campaign. 

As an example, yesterday I had a customer call me saying his player stopped working (MS200 player with win7 embed and latest version).  I went to the site and the screen was blank.  What I found out was they changed their router and gave the ssid and the password the same credentials as before so the signage player would not connect to the new wireless that it was connected to previously.  I would have expected the player to start playing the campaign in offline mode but the screen was blank.  I deleted the previous connection and then re-connected to the new router using the same ssid and password and wallah it started playing again.  I have experienced this type of behavior many times previously when the wireless signal or connection is poor.

Overall, I do like the application/service that Digital Signage provides and I am a satisfied user but the product is not perfect.  There is no perfect product...You just find workarounds.  However it would be great if the DS team could tackle this one as it has been happening for quite a long time (I been an enterprise user for 3 years).  Hopefully sharing this information will help towards a solution.

Thanks for the tip...
Whats involved in ROOTing the MediaDroidX device?

had the same issue...I contacted teamviewer and working with their tech support we were unable to connect to the driod device consistently.  And this was with their mobile device product.  Teamviewer said they would try to add it to their list of compliant devices but don't know how many others out there are looking for the same functionality.  I would contact them and make the request and perhaps if enough people do it, they will add it.
