Announcing BrightSign 1.1.28 Beta - Signup Here!



Greetings,

We are pleased to announce the beta release of BrightSign Firmware 1.1 (version 1.1.28) and Autorun.bas script version 1.1 (version 1.1.7). This build is a release candidate.

Autorun.bas 1.1 includes:
  • New Playlist! feature - Now, it’s even easier to play a list of images, mp3s, or mpegs with a simple text file.
  • New Mouse Rollover feature - rollover regions added so you can update UI based on mouse movements, allowing more advanced mouse driven displays
  • Fixed for orientation issue where some Elo touch screens reverse coordinates
  • Fixed issue a single line playlist generated an error
  • Please note autorun.bas 1.1 no longer supports autoplay1.bmp, autoplay2.bmp, etc for playing back a list of images. You must use a playlist or autoplay.csv.
BrightSign Software v1.1.28 Firmware version 1.1 includes improved support for bitmaps, mpeg video, and Compact Flash cards as well as overall performance improvements. Specifically:
  • New View Mode video display option added so that MPEG2 aspect radio can be maintained during playback.
  • New Roku Serial object - supports reading from and writing to serial port
  • New Channel specific volume control
  • New SPDIF modes including raw AC3 output over SPDIF
  • New Boot Options - Users can now write boot logo and boot script, both are stored in NOR Flash
  • USB audio playback now chooses best sample rate supported by speakers
  • 8 bit bitmaps including RLE now supported
  • Added support for 8-bit bitmap files
  • Improved mpeg and mpeg2 video compatibility
  • Improved Compact Flash card compatibility
  • Numerous BrightScript improvements
  • Fixed: Delay when using autoplay.mpg to loop single video
  • Improvement in the logic used to mount FAT volumes. 1. It now deals correctly with a card which didn't have a partition table (MBR in sector 0) and then got a partition table (which only partially overlaps the MBR). This problem caused some files that were visible in windows to not showup on the BrightSign. 2. If a partition table incorrectly marks the type of FAT volume in a partition, we now correctly detect it anyway.
  • New roDeviceInfo object - see usage example below


roDeviceInfo Example -------------------------------- i = CreateObject("roDeviceInfo") print i.GetModel() HD600 print i.GetVersion() 1.1.25 print i.GetVersionNumber() 65817

Attention! Custom Script Users
In 1.1 we added the “Booleanâ€

    Survey completed, got the new OS for the bright sign, but the new 1.1.6 autoplay script has an error at line 79, stop. I haven't gotten around to fixing the script yet to try and move forward.

    Please post any problems in the beta forum. You now have access to the beta forum.



    Line 79 has a stop if the script doesn't find any autoplay files. Please remember that autoplay.bmp no longer works with 1.1 script. That functionality now resides in the playlists.



    The flash card must have an autoplay.mpg or autoplay.vob file, or autoplay.bsp(playlist) or autplay.csv.



    What's on your flash card? And, are those files in the root directory, or a subfolder?
