We don't have a ton of displays out at the moment, but that's about to change here soon, so I'd like to get some of these issues fleshed out.
I started using Ubuntu because the Intel sticks that we were ordering weren't coming with OEM Windows licenses. Everything was on 14.04, just saw this week that the software runs on 16.04. I'm started to upgrade my displays to 16.04.
Issues I've had:
- Sometimes I come across a display and its just sitting on the desktop. I would love to somehow make a script that autodetects if the signage is running and if not, re-launch it.
- Sometimes when the device boots up, Rise Vision launches before the WiFi connection has had a chance to be established. I've tried to delay the startup time, but Rise Vision seems to reset the autostart parameter every time it launches
- Sometimes my display loses it's connection to WiFi and doesn't reconnect. I would love to have a script that checks for an active connection and if it doesn't detect it, it either tries to re-establish it's connection or it reboots the devices automatically.
- Sometimes I come across a display and the screen is just white the entire time... Obviously not loading the content properly and not attempting to do anything about it either.
Has anyone else had these issues? If so, do you have any solutions for these issues?
My main thought right now is maybe it's just issues with the hardware, maybe we'd be better served by using something more powerful?
