Connected as a Guest instead of Registered user, and i'm in!Not sure why - that is the user name and password for the Pi. Someone else also had problems accessing via network shares. In the end he used FileZilla to drag and drop the files from his Windows PC onto the RPI2DMD clock. Make sure you use Port 22 to connect to the Clock.
Hope that helps
I have one small problem. Shortly after I turn the clock on the animation freezes and will not move and just displays the same image constantly. If I connect and pause then resume it will then work perfectly?
Not sure... Possibly new animations and also new Features in the software... I'm happy to do something like a mail-in replacement service should that arise (for those unable or unsure on how to re-image an SD card or copy files accross...Will there be new animations available in future, and if so, will it be a drag and drop update (to the folders)?
It seems the SD card can get corrupt @Paul when playing with settings via the web interface. I tried resetting the config settings (web interface and network shares still work) - but that wasnt enough for me. Fortunately I took a backup of my SD Card - so burnt a new image and all back again.
I haven't managed to completely reproduce the problem... but I think it is caused by the more impatient owner (speaking for a friend ), if you press "save" setting button multiple times via the web interface, it can screw up the settings file. Save settings can be a bit slow, and the new settings take a few seconds to show up - so can understand someone pressing the button a few times.There does seem to be an intermittant issue when a "feature" is switched on or off... i.e. switch the Clock off, or the Weather...
I do have to say i havent had one yet (after configuring all of these) that has given me any issues... however there's has been a number of people on here that have has these problems... so more than likely i was lucky... there has to be some kind of common issue here...
I'll report back to the dev and see if they have any suggestions
Don't know if there's enough of an OS on the RasPi, but would it be feasible to write a shutdown script to run a certain time (before the time the timer went off), then it would start when the power came back on?Apologies if this has already been asked a dozen times, I haven't been keeping track. Is it safe to hook this up to a Smart Plug on a timer? Or does it need to be shut down in any particular way?
