    Hello Dennis,

    Normally that error does mean that the disk space on the media player is low. Could you do me a quick favor, and open the command line (terminal) and run the following command on your Raspberry Pi?

    df -h /home/<your username>/rvplayer/RiseCache/cache

    This is what it looks like when I run it on my Raspberry Pi:

    That command will tell you how much available space you have.

    Thanks!

    I agree that's probably what is happening, and I know it's pretty full, but even with low available space I wouldn't have thought the files coming across would tip it over

    Here's the output:
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root 5.6G 5.0G 285M 95% /

    Does anyone know of a way to clear the cache or otherwise trim fat on Raspbian to free up room?  It's been working fine with the same kind of presentation files up til now, so I wouldn't have thought anything would have changed to take up more space.

    Hi Dennis,

    Any chance you are running large videos or images that would have accounted for the additional space being chewed up? 

    If you look in the rvplayer/Rise Cache / Cache folder, that will contain all the files downloaded to the device to playing the various Presentations that have played on the Display. Files not accessed for 30 days will be deleted, but this way you can see how much is in there to determine if large video or image files are causing this notification.

    Thanks!

    The presentations have been fairly simple images, nothing much over 2 MB. I quit being lazy and did the math, the new slides total less than 15 MB and I'm showing the Pi has almost 300 MB free.

    I looked in /home/<user>/rvplayer/RiseCache/cache and the folder is empty

    Hi Dennis,

    I think that we'll have the best luck investigating this through a ticket. You should receive an email from me shortly.

    Thanks!
