I'm running RiseVision presentation on an Asus Chromebox. At the first time setup the resolution of my monitor was 1920x1080. Now the Chromebox is hooked up to a 37" TV with a native resolution of 1366x768 using the HDMI port. Well the presentation is not displaying in that resolution, and the player itselt is reporting a resolution of 1920x1080. My question is: Is it possible to adjust the screen resolution when in Kiosk mode, or will I have to wipe out the machine as David explains in this post.

I was thinking maybe it could work to create a html placeholder with this code? <iframe src="chrome://settings/" width="604" height="339" frameborder="0" scrolling="yes" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

or maybe it's as simple as just Alt + F4? I don't have access to the ChromeBox at the moment, but will try the different alternatives and revert outcome for anyone interested

Toonwolf,

I've run into this issue myself, if there was a way to do it, I couldn't figure it out. I had to end up wiping the Chromebox.

Robb, thx for your reply. Ended up wiping the Chromebox aswell . Maybe you should mention this in the documentation http://www.risevision.com/help/instal... telling people that if they are going to use a different resolution after enabling kiosk mode they need to wipe the chromebox

@ToonWolf - can you expain what you did in more detail?

We have an LG monitor that defaults to 1360x768 but can support 1920x1080; I want the Chromebox to be set at 1920x1080 but can't find a way to set this once it's been put into Kiosk Mode. Did you find a way around this?

@Samuel: sorry could not find any other way but reset and adjust the resolution and then enable kiosk mode. Will take you about 10 minutes.

@toonwolf - when you did this, did the resolution "stay" at 1920x1080? Even when unplugging and moving to a new television?

The first time I setup my Chromebox the resolution was set to 1920x1080 (native resolution for my 22" display) Afterward it was hooked up to a 37" TV and the resoultion had to be changed. It was done when it was connected to the TV. Have not tried to move it afterwards.
