Hey guys,
Fantastic idea, love the functionality you have built. The tutorial videos are great.

My question, I have set up 2 players (one windows, one raspberry pi). I can add the displays, create new presentations and set-up the schedule. I can preview the presentations and schedules from the Rise Vision control panel, however the players only display blank pages - reboot or restart player dose not resolve the issue.

I have been able to get the players to display the cafe menu template but if I try to change anything the player only shows blank place holders. I have created a basic presentation and used the web page gadget, again I can preview the presentation / schedule but the players will not display anything.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi David,

If Placeholders are showing up blank, then I would suggest ensuring that Timelines and Distributions are set correctly for the Placeholders and Playlist items (Playlists can be set individually if there are more than one in a Placeholder).
Previews ignore all Distributions and Timelines, so they'll still show up there regardless.

Also, Displays will only update once a Presentation has been Published (saving a Presentation won't trigger a change).

I hope the above helps.
