Instead of the black screen or Error internet connection message, is there any way to show one picture from local hdd ?

Currently this is not possible with Rise Vision, but if you are interested in this functionality, be sure to vote for this idea!

Wouldn't a better solution be to have a local backup of the presentations themselves? 

In html you can use alternative locations if the source doesn't load like this:

All you would need to do is have a backup of your content and have the html point to it on your drive in case there is a broken connection. This would have to rely on the riseplayer caching the information of the presentation layouts (layout, schedules .etc) and having an option to bypass the no internet connection warning.

Even better, maybe on the Display options you could set a backup presentation which will cache the content it can to the system. Obviously won't be viable for experimental/dynamic content such as iframes and rss tickers, but if its just html, js, images and video I cant see there being much of an issue...

Just my 5p. For now though, I usually recommend people to buy a 4G if they have a shoddy internet connection.

P.S. how does caching work on riseplayer at the moment?

Interesting idea, however at this time all that is cached on the Display with the Rise Cache app is all images and videos from your Presentation. These are cached to ensure they do not need to be downloaded every time they show in your Presentation.

Thanks for sharing that information above!
