Re: Preventing Screen Blanking

Solution to MY screen blanking:
(BLACK page inserted on purpose in case of just videos in playlist), edit screenly/viewer.py, line 251-3. Change:

f = open(fifo, 'a')
f.write('set uri = %s\n' % black_page)
f.close()

to

# f = open(fifo, 'a')
# f.write('set uri = %s\n' % black_page)
# f.close()

Re: Preventing Screen Blanking

The screen blanking I am seeing is more in the operation of Screenly as an app. I've only got one Asset, a webpage, and it's setup correctly and functioning ok, except...

That did the trick... in fact, it was easier since there were a few more code fixes since the first time. Awesome use o...

Re: Screenly - errors adding assets

What kind of asset did you try to add? first a url, then an image. I decided that was broken enough. Also, could you send the file ~/.screenly/screenly.db? No. There's 0 bytes in ~/.screenly... and it's not a directory, so no db in there. Permissions are 777 now (I tried), and owner/group is pi/pi....

Screenly - errors adding assets

Hi, I get Screenly set up but get 500 - Internal Server errors on adding assets. I read through the posts and tried trashing the db and recreating with no luck... It seems a database access problem like one of the other posts. What was the fix for that? My big question: If ALL content is loaded from...
