  1. Ethernet vs. WIFI

    A family member does not have WIFI and so would need to hook directly into their cable modem via ethernet. What is the best solution? And which frame do you recommend?

  5. User interface needs a key/legend

    The page where I can view my photo Inbox has a green light besides some photos and a red light besides others. I have no idea what this means. Thanks!

    Hello,

    If you gently put the mouse on the little red or green dot (without clicking on it) you get a pop up window showing up with the relevant detailed explanation of the meaning of the red and green dot.

  6. Internet Radio Station: What type of stream URL format does this device use?

    I found a couple station URL's that work. But other formats don't. Can you provide more technical detail as to how the URL stream format needs to be sent.

  8. The ability to crop photos.

    I wish there was the ability to crop photos from within the frame's user interface, the web interface, and the app.

    Not all photos are taken in the orientation of how the frame is displayed and I hate the letterbox effect of many of my photos. I wish there was an option to easily identify and select all photos that are in the orientation opposite of how my frame is displayed. Then give me the ability to permanently crop the photo to fit the display area. Or even better, don't permanently crop the photo, but somehow store how it should…

    Hello,

    Actually the 24 hours mode already exist for English language, if you go to the CHANGE SETTINGS menu then to

    AUTO ON & OFF

    menu, at the very bottom you have the TIME FORMAT choice then inside if you choose:

    DD/MM/YYYY

    it will automatically change this to 24 h mode for the time display.

  12. Replaced Ceiva frame with PixStar

    I finally "killed" my Ceiva frame and account and replaced the whole thing with a PixStar frame and it's e-mail account to friends and family. The thought of paying a "subscription" to store on the Ceiva servers was a very bad business model. Plus their frame size and resolution was terrible and bad WiFi dongle kept dropping my network. I'm buying more PixStar frames for family.

  13. before a video plays, it shows this screen that tells me that a video is about to play. Why? Skip that and just play the video!

    before a video plays, it shows this screen that proudly tells me that a video is about to play. Why?
    Remove that screen and just play the video directly!

    Hello,

    This is already an existing feature.

    Go to the change setting menu, then go to

    SLIDE SHOW

    in this menu at the very bottom you have:

    Video options

    Here change to choose:

    play automatically.

    Then you won’t have this thumbnail preview anymore.

    Hello,

    Understand. It has been like this for 8 years now, since the first pix-star was launched on the market in 2008 and nobody ever complained about these 20 seconds.

    It seems to be acceptable and a good solution / method for all our users so far.

    Is there any particular reason in your use case that these 20 seconds are now a problem?

    Thank you.

    The Pix-Star Team.

  19. Add captions to photo from within the app

    I have over 300 photos in a folder that I would love tongonthrough each photo and add captions from within the app. The purpose is to allow others seeing the playback to read why a given picture is important to me. Today, this is only done via mailing a photo and adding a caption in the subject line.

  20. What is the point in having different albums if you can play them separately?

    I want to display one album at a time. I purchased my frame (10" version ) in March 2015. It will only let me select play all photos or weather. What is the point in having multiple albums if they are just going to display all together anyway? Very disapointed.

    Hello,

    actually you can play each album separately one by one, of course.

    just go inside the provider line (for instance pixstar) in this new screen you see the list of your albums.

    then go INSIDE THAT ALBUM you want to play, press the first line " play all the pictures below" and it will play ONLY that SPECIFIC album.

    if problem contact our support by email at

    info@pix-star.com

    this feature is implemented and DOES work.
