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?

Thats strange, however it seems not unique... you will probably find that if you dicsonnect from the power and unplug for 10 mins.. then re-connect and re-power it works ok from them onwards??

I think it may be down to how i have imaged and set them up... As i mentioned each is run for 24 hours before shipping, so we know any initial hardware is good (and we know that they have been ok on a soak test)... I then do the final config and changes in Wifi etc... I then Shutdown from the menu (Which i suspect may be causing the issue!).... so some are arriving in a strange state...

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.
