ConnectPort SlideShow

Hi,
I have an ConnectPort Display M22-W, and would like to use it for digital signage.
I read in the app.note 'Using ConnectPort™ Display in Digital Advertising' that it could be configured in 'slide show mode' but i cant figure out how...
Please help me..
Thanks
Arne

Hi Arne,

Put some .jpg picture files on a flash drive then insert the flash drive in one of the USB ports. They should start displaying unless you have old firmware that doesn't support this feature. If this doesn't work, paste information from "System Information" section of the M22 webpage.

I see that the menu 'Slide Show Configuration' is missing too. The pictures in the app.note show that..

That v1.03 firmware does support the playback of .jpg files, although there isn't a configurable "Slideshow mode" in the M22 web interface.

Note that the .jpg files must be in the main folder of the flash drive. Also, depending on how they were encoded, you may need to re-save them as .jpg files (in a program such as IrfanView, which is a free download) in order for the M22 to support them.

If those initial suggestions don't help, tell me, what exactly do you see on the monitor that's attached to your M22?
