Hello,
I'm back from some holidays and business trip for the CES at Las Vegas. Believe me, Las Vegas is not always what you can see on TV series : for me, it was cold and rainy. I came back to Europe heavily sick ;-)

Checking the RiseVision manual, I see that Chrome OS is no longer listed in the best platform to use. OK. There were several threads about previously. Anyway, is there somewhere in the on-line manual a recommended paired version over Rise Player and Chrome OS ? 
I would suggest to have this information up-to-date.

Thanks a lot.
Thierry

Apologize. I posted too rapidly. I found finally the answer on the manual : Create a display (section Chrome OS) . So far, it is recommended to lock Chrome OS upgrade to 47.* .
Thanks for updating this information on a regular basis with the supported version.
Best regards.

Tim, our Chromeboxes are on even older Chrome version and they do just fine.

Tim, but I need to mention that Chromeboxes aren't officially supported and you should expect something not working quite right in the future.

Tim,

Darius is right on the money, the Chrome Player is no longer supported and has been deprecated. You can read more about that here.

Thanks!

Thanks Robb, yes I am aware of the discussions and the chrome player is no longer supported and we understand that we are currently operating at risk. To mitigate this prior to us considering investment in new hardware I was trying to understand what the best advice is.The link you have referred to advised that devices are under chrome management (which ours are), but there is a conflict between the statement advise to keep one behind the latest chrome version which would be 54.*, and the point that says Restrict Google Chrome version to at most to 48.* ?
Thanks
Tim.

Tim,

Those instructions have not been updated past the last Chrome version that we tested with, so that is why it currently states version 48.

Hi Thierry,
Yes that's our latest paired recommendation. Thanks!

Although we use all Dell Chromeboxes, and have had success, something to consider:
You cannot prevent Chrome upgrades unless you have CDM. And if your college, like ours, has decided not to purchase CDM, this may be an issue should there be conflicts in the future ...

So far we've been okay though ...
