  1. How about auto adjustment for Daylight Savings time!

    Please change le clock to use NTP servers, GMT plus a timezone adjustment. I have to change the clock every time we move in and out of DST!

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. Remote access for volume control for videos

    It would be nice to be able to control video volume remotely (turn down or mute), right now it sometimes scares my mom (82) when a video starts playing and she is in the other room.

  6. 100% remote web interface control

    I bought the 15" frame (2019) for my father. This was a very nice upgrade to the Pixstar frame from several years ago.

    The frame is in the Midwest, while I am on the west coast.

    My father loves the frame....however he is challenged at times to understand the frame's interface (92years old).

    Anyway to get 100% frame control? I can't manually adjust time remotely. I can't control all the sorting options remotely. Having 100% remote access would only enhance Pixstar's brand. Many of my relatives have adopted the Pixstar brand after seeing the frame in action. These relatives fall…

  8. The ability to edit alarms/reminders online

    It would be most helpful to be able to edit existing alarms and reminders online. I would love to be able to change the time on a reminder rather than having to create a new alarm/reminder with the new time and then having to delete the old reminder.

    Hello,

    When you open the inbox manually to confirm the picture you already see it on the screen so you can visualize it as long as you want.

    it’s already more or less what you ask for.

    Once accepted we can only put it in the slide show and display it at the next rotation depending on the type of slide show normal or random it will have a different position.

    We cannot display it again just after you accept all the pictures of the inbox.

  10. Great product-Thanks! Set up a challenge using th buttons on the back. How about a touch screen interface?

    Set up was difficult using the buttons on the back. Once frame was registered much easier. My suggestion is to include a touch screen interface--I keep hitting keys to input by Wi-Fi network--using buttons on back and then clicking Ok was time consuming. Thanks

    Hello,

    You can already display the subject of the email as a caption at bottom of the image in the slide show inside the frame.

    Go to change settings menu then to Slide show menu.

    here go to

    display details.

    inside choose " display subject".

    then in the slide show the subject will show on the picture.

    REAMRK: this does not work in collage mode you need to switch to the mode where it shows 1 picture at a time on the screen.

  13. Better Instagram Support

    Modern Instagram images are up to 1080x1080 pixels and may be not square. So far I got 800x800 on my frame with white borders on rectangular images to make them square.

    It would be really nice if you can export Instagram images in full resolution and without adding borders.

  14. Share account photos across multiple accounts

    Is there any way to use the configuration from my first frame to be used for multiple frames when linked together? It looks like just emailed photos and new shared albums are linked but I can't link an existing album.

  15. Remote Firmware Update

    It would be great if an "Update Firmware" button could be added to the Pix-Star portal. We bought two frames, the closest of which is 2 hours away. Neither of the recipients are particularly tech savy.

  16. Ability to choose which phone files are accessed by app.

    I would like to have an option to specifically select which folders the app can access on my phone so I can, for example, limit the apps access to my camera roll only. Right now it is needlessly accessing all the album art from my music files.

  17. Automatic Firmware Update

    I once had a problem with the frame which was fixed in one of the updates, but I was not aware about that, as the frame simply shows images all the time and I have no need to look at the menu, so I didn't see the notification.

    It would be really nice if the device could automatically install firmware updates by itself while asleep or early at the morning. You can make this optional, though.

    Thanks :)

  18. Automatically accept photos and display them without the menu/timer

    Automatically accept photos and display them without the menu/timer, maybe display a star or email icon to indicate they are new.

    When I have automatic enabled, I hear the ding of a new photo, but who knows when it will display. Automatic and show throws up the menu and blocks half of the new picture.

    Hello,

    There is already such feature in the web site.

    Select the picture to copy then just above the pictures at the right click on the drop down menu saying " copy picture to web album" and select the destination album.

    remark: you must create the web albums first int eh page " view my web albums".
