Hello,

we are trying the first steps with Screenly OSE.
The weather widget is a very nice idea, but the contrast is much to low. How can we change the background picture or the font color to black.

Thanks and regards,
Marco

Hi,

thanks for your answer. Maybe can the background changed by default, because I think that is not only my opinion.

Regards,
Marco

Hi everyone

I'm newbie with Screenly and Raspberry. I've just installet Screenly OSE this morning to test it and I am amazed.

I'm working as an IT Teacher in a Secondary School. We want to create a Signage Screen to show school info to our students.

I was trying the clock and the weather app, but I'm looking for new apps or ideas.

For example:
- Another clocks like this: http://www.clocktab.com/

I discovered how to show a full presentation with Google Drive Slides.
- Chek it: https://productforums.google.com/forum/ ... P3DK0Tphqc

¿Could you share yours ideas?

I was looking for:
- new weather apps
- a way to share a director real-time message
- hashtag search on twitter
- ...

Sorry for the long message.

Regards,

Álvaro Pablos

Hard to tell without more info. Are you able to reproduce this issue multiple times?

Hi and thank you. let me give you more precise information. I have flashed the SD card. I have booted and seen the Screenly page where it has the ip address. I have logged to the management console. noticed the date and time is wrong so I had to login to the SSH and change the NTP server and restarted the pi.

please see the latest system info screen below.

hope you can help on this one to me.

Hi,
I think I resolved the issue. our network is too secure that it was blocking NTP server and everything, thus I have connected a free network where there are no restrictions, let it initiliaze, change the NTP server and we are in business. I have connected back to the secure network, still working with no issues.

thanks,

Yes, the Raspberry Pi does require an NTP server since it does not have any RTC device on the board.

I had screenly OSE running perfecty fine on my Pi 3 B+ . Had the stable version installed. I first made a SD card with strech lite and installed the stable version. All was fine. All assets playing fine including pictures, movies and web links. Today I upgraded it to latest dev version to enable the authentication for its web interface. All went fine and authentication worked. I also managed to give it a static IP, installed cec-utils to control the TV On and OFF based on a schedule via cron job. All was working fine.

Once on the latest version, noticed that the web page being displayed was not rendered properly and information was off the screen with tabs missing and other info showing incorrectly. Went back and ran ~/screenly/bin/run-upgrade.sh and picked back the stable version. It did its part and came back up and running. This time the authentication was not working so I was locked out of the web interface. The assets were playing ok though based on the schedule. Still the web page was not shown properly. I then ran back the ~/screenly/bin/run-upgrade.sh and picked back latest dev version. After the upgrade at least authentication worked back but the web links were still broken and not displaying properly.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

In this post I see two problems:
1. Blocked access to the web interface after returning to the stable version
2. The web page has stopped displaying correctly.
Right?

Regarding the first problem: this is expected, because the stable version does not have password encryption. to rollback, you can turn off authentication, and then go back to the stable version (if you really need it).

Regarding the second problem: I doubt that the problem is in the dev version. which web page are you talking about? is it possible that the web page has recently been changed? if so, then it's possible that the problem is on the uzbl side (outdated browser that we use).
The other day we'll publish a new experimental version with a new browser and let you know here.

Thanks for the quick reply. No, the webpage has not changed and displays correct when called from a browser on PC. When screenly displays it there is info missing from the page. This page was displaying correctly before I upgraded to dev version though.

I was going to build a secondary screenly OSE for testing before I push things to the display that is already in use.

Please let me know when you have rolled the newer browser in the screenly so I can test.

Thanks a lot.

Guys, we are happy to announce that the experimental Screenly OSE version is available. It includes the new browser with hardware acceleration support (as a replacement for old uzbl), and migration of all services to the docker. To try it follow the steps under 'Manual upgrade' here and answer yes to the question about experimental version.
We are looking forward to feedback, please let us know about any problems.

Hi guys,

I am using Screenly OSE on Raspberry Pi and everything is great except the overscan issue. I have black border around pictures and web pages. I know what the issue is but have no idea how to fix it. I installed the Screenly OSE custom image and also have no idea how to access Raspbian console. Can somebody help me with this issue?
Thanks.

While SSH is disabled by default for security reasons, you can still access the shell using a keyboard. Simply connect the keyboard and press ctrl+alt+f3 and login with the default credentials.

I'm trying to get Screenly OSE up and running on a 3B+ but I'm having issues so I'm asking for help.

I noticed under Bugfixes / improvements for "My Michelle - Sprint 7 Completed" it says
* Adds support for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

so I went ahead and tried to install Screenly OSE on a 3B+ and here's what I experienced
Option 1: Download the custom image
Will not boot, stays stuck on rainbow screen.
Option 2: Using NOOBS
Screenly OSE does not appear as an option when running NOOBS on a 3B+
Option 3: Install Screenly OSE yourself
Screenly OSE installs but boots to console, not Screenly

I've seen posts about Screenly OSE successfully working on a 3B+ so it must be possible.

I'm unable to reproduce this. I just flashed out the release (https://github.com/Screenly/screenly-os ... /tag/v0.15) to an SD card and was able to boot it just fine on a B+. Perhaps the the download or disk image was corrupt.

I would suggest that you re-download the disk image (and validate the MD5 checksum) and try a different SD card.

Thank you! It was the SD card(s).

It seems that Samsung 32GB 95MB/s (U1) MicroSD EVO Select Memory Card will not boot on the 3B+ but will boot on the 3B (tested with multiple cards, multiple 3Bs and 3B+s). The Sandisk Ultra 32GB Micro SDHC UHS-I Card boots fine on both the 3B and 3B+. Memory cards were flashed identically with the Screenly OSE image.

Thanks again.

Interesting. Yeah, I know we've seen strange issues with SD cards over the years, but I don't recall any situation where the card wasn't detected.

I tried: Update uzbl, update screenly to developper version with new browser and few setting in config.txt, nothing work... :(
Any idea how to fix it?

Hello,

After connecting to a Wifi network the Screenly OSE does not seem to be appearing for installation on NOOBS v2.8 - Built Apr 18 2018 with all the other OS that populate once you connect to a network. I just installed a two RPis with Screenly OSE this way a few weeks ago the only difference is the ones i'm using today are the new Raspbery Pi 3 Model B+, are they not supported yet?

Hi all,

First post here and new to Raspberry Pi

Can Screenly run just one item? i.e. one video file or web page

Reason i ask is that I am looking at setting up a display with 4 separate images using 4 Raspberry Pi each displaying one video, web page or image. They would be connected to a HDMI Quad Screen Multiviewer so we can have all 4 displaying at once or someone could select which one was required to be viewed at full screen.!

The information displayed needs to be view-able at all times as it is for an emergency service, no interaction is required for the displayed info.

If I am looking at this all wrong or there is a better solution please let me know! My original idea was to run it all from a PC with mutliple connections going to the Multiviewer, this was going to be an issue because the display is going to be in another room to the PC.
