Hello Brightsign community,
I am trying to set up my HD223 and I am having some problems getting started.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!
Here is the way which I am attempting to use the HD223 player: I have two audio tracks. Each track has a button associated with it. When the visitor pushes one of the buttons, the banjo song plays once, and then stops until the button is pushed again. When the visitor pushes the other button, the fiddle song plays once, and then stops until the button is pushed again. Real simple stuff. There is no video associated with my "presentation", audio only. I am not trying to set up, or control anything wirelessly or over any kind of special network. I simply want to put two audio tracks onto the micro SD card and plug the button wires into the GPIO bar and be done with this.
Some questions I have, based on my little experience with media players:
*Is BrightAuthor the only way to get files onto the SD card, so that the player will understand, read and execute the button play functionality? and if yes, does the micro SD card need to be in the player, or the computer where the audio files are located?
*I cannot tell if the computer is discovering the player or not.. how can I tell?
*Does the audio file name need to be something special like audio 1 / audio 2, or A, B?
*Will the player add it's own files to that SD card, to make all that work?
*Does there need to be an "attract" file on there? ( I am actually not really clear about what an attract file is or why it is needed on other players we have in use..)
Again, any assistance would be very much appreciated!!
