    • Auto sync network time with a manual time zone

      I went from Central Daylight Time (CDT) to Central Standard Time (CST) last Sunday night (2017/11/05 at 2 AM).

      The pixstar is set to auto sync with the network time.

      The pixstar still says its 1 hour fast. I.E. Right now its:

      $ date
      Wed Nov 8 08:03:43 CST 2017

      But the pixstar says its: 09:03:43 !!!! I.E. it is set to the Eastern Standard Time (EST).

      You should have a manual time zone.

      • Disable sensor motion on schedule.

        My frame it´s on my living room, and to go to the kitchen I pass in front of it, so in the middle of the night if I go to the kitchen to drink some water the frame turns on.

        I would like that the Motion Sensor turn on to had an optional "Do Not turn on the frame between X:XX and X:XX"

        In that way I could setup to not turn on say between 23:00 and 06:00, and could pass in front of it on that time frame and it would not turn on.

        • Remove pictures from Web Albums

          Not all pictures from a web album I'd like to share on my Pix Star. For example if I share my Timeline photos from Facebook, I'd like to hide certain ones. Can that be a feature in the future?

          • Use email subject as picture name

            I wonder if it may be possible for the Frame to use the email subject as the picture title. This would make it so much easier to name pictures so that the recipient can identify what they're looking at!

                I have several Pix-Star frames and i want to send pictures to a common email address so that they all receive the picture and manage them from a single account.

                • Sort pictures on website in reverse order

                  When viewing an album on the website, the photos are sorted by the upload date. It would be much more useful to sort in the reverse order so the most recent are at the top. I often use this web view to see what the most recent photos I uploaded are, and right now I have to scroll to the bottom which takes forever as the photos load 20 at a time.

                  • Connecting the frame to a NAS within the local network via SMB

                    Dears,
                    it would be nice to connect the Frame via the smb-protokoll to a NAS / Windows-Share and Play all found Pictures stored in all/different Folders.
                    If the NAS/share is updated with new files, the Frame will Play them in the future (cycling or random) without updating the Frame itselve.

                    • User specified sort order

                      I would like to be able to drag & drop images on the web interface to rearrange the order of images to be displayed.

                      If that is not feasible, then I would like to be able to specify new files names and be able to sort by the file name.

                      • Create online view only login so others can view photos without having admin rights

                        Background: As family members contribute photos to a frame for our Mother/Grandmother, they would like to view the pictures that others have contributed as we are spread across the country. It appears there is only a single login to the frame which provides admin rights. We do not want to have everyone use that for obvious reasons. Is there a way to offer a guest "view only" mode to the frame? Our mother/grandmother truly enjoys seeing current pictures on a regular basis without needing to be tech savvy! Thanks for the consideration.

                            Currently there is no functionality for reminders or alarms online. Creating them on the frame is cumbersome due to the interface.

                                Hi,
                                Please allow the frame to connect to an OwnCloud instance. I have lots of photos in OwnCloud and would love to be able to share these with family members who have the PixStar frame. I don't want to upload these photos to a public cloud provider to be able to share them.
                                Thanks

                                • Reminders online

                                  I need to be able to create the reminders online. The remote control is too cumbersome without an actual keyboard and only up and down arrows. Additionally I need to be able to do it remotely.
                                  Also, I need these reminders to stay up the whole day or at least for an extended amount of time. They can appear at the bottom of the pictures.
                                  Birthday reminders should have a setting to repeat annually and stay up all day (like the weather).

                                  • Multi Frame Account - Select Pictures per Frame Control

                                    With Multi Frame Account, I want to control which frames get certain pictures. My husband's parents are divorced and they HATE each other. I will be controlling the Multi Frame Account and I want to control which Frame gets which pictures cause they don't need to be seeing how the other half of the family is with my child. Also, I want to put more pictures of my family on their frames and more pictures of the husband's side on their frames.

                                    • Is there a way to play the more recent pictures more frequently?

                                      Play the more recent pictures more frequently, based on how many pictures are in storage.

                                        Hello,

                                        New frames 10.4 & 15 inch sold after Nov. 1st, 2014 have now a new mode where latest pictures are repeated more often in the slide show.

                                      • Slideshow: only Inbox (without local storage or web-folders)

                                        Hello! Thanks for the great product. I buy it for my grandma in Germany and she love it.
                                        Is it possible to show only the pictures of the "inbox"?
                                        the more recent pictures are stored there
                                        - we didn't want to show ALL web-folders and ALL the local storage - only the recent pictures

                                        sorry for my bad english

                                        best regards
                                        jm

                                            When the picture is playing on the frame slide show, press MENU button inside the menu that comes up from the left there is a rotate button in the middle.
