We just started building an advertising network using HD1010's. However, here are a few little things that we have trouble with. I built the presentation under BrightAuthor 126.96.36.199 and our test unit is running firmware 3.7.52 (I had to upgrade it since it asked us at least 3.7.44)
- We have a 140px high zone at the top with inox-like image in it. We want to put date and time there. I added two clock zones hover the image zone and configured those to be transparent, but instead of showing the image zone underneith, it seems to hide everything and show the global background color. I then defined a background image to both clock zones with the same inox file image (and set transparency back to 0), but I still get nothing. Seems like background images aren't loaded in clock zones.
- Still with clock zones, I specified a custom font, but date and time are displayed with System font. Did the same with a ticker to show RSS feed and it works.
- Talking about the ticker, I use this feed : http://rss.radio-canada.ca/fils/nouvelles/nouvelles.xml But we want to keep this simple and show only the title. After a quick search here, I found out that I needed to change autorun.brs and change the line
Code: Select all
description = article.GetDescription()
. That worked fow a while until a pushed changes on the network. I found out that an update overwrites autorun.brs. So I copied the file under the name custom.brs, changed the line, and attached it to the presentation as a custom autorun but I still get the full description.
Code: Select all
description = article.GetTitle()
Any idea about these issues ? What am I doing wrong ? Are there bugs with either BrightAuthor software or the firmware I am using (apparently I have to use the beta firmware) ?
Thanks a lot.
