|The Perils of TV - Part 2
||[Jun. 20th, 2007|11:19 pm]
Ok, another month has passed and the TVs are up and running.|
This job turned out to be much much more work than I was expecting. Safely and securely mounting the TVs, building somewhere to hold the computer, putting in power outlets and routing signal cabling involved a cast of millions... Ok, ok, dozens?.. would you believe several?
There are still a couple of bugs to be worked out. Annoyingly the computer tends to occasionally pop up boxes claiming that updates are ready to be installed. I have also been told that the TVs are not reliably going into power save mode over night... I really don't want to have to hang around after hours to test that one. Will this be a never ending job?
I am very happy that the end result looks very professional (even if I do say so myself) and the ability for notices to be easily added to the slideshow is very useful. It is a shame that now we have everything figured out we will probably never have to do another installation.
