Digital signage

Hi all,
I have a pi 2b which I got to help create advertising for use in my shop. I have created a presentation using the Linux software, using slides, which I want to continually loop. However, I have found that the system freezes after 2 hours and I have to reboot to restart the presentation. Any ideas how I can fix this please?

Have no idea how you loop your slides, but might be worth to check out SW like this https://pipresents.wordpress.com

I'm able to loop through various sorts of images for hours on end using fbi.

The info-beamer is one of the digital signage services for the Pi and can be used for that. It allows you to remotely control any number of screens. You can use it for free for a single Pi and it works on any model, even the older Pi1. Right now a somewhat working internet connection is required though as it's not an offline system.
