  1. Automatically move pictures from internal memory to sd card

    Since the SD card is not used to expand the internal memory nor is it accessible through samba (for technical reasons). Could it not be possible to have the option to have internal memory pictures automatically moved to the SD card?

  2. Ability to display photos by "date taken"

    This would allow photos to be displayed in chronological order based on the date the picture was taken. This would be cool for example to have a slide show of your children growing up.

  3. Show picture taken date on photos during slideshow

    This ought to be added as an option under Display Details. Would be nice if the font size is configurable for this too, so it's not too large.

  4. resize on upload

    Resize pictures on upload or emailed to the web site before storage. The size should be configured to be the native resolution of the frame retaining aspect ratio.

  5. SAMBA server - drop the insecure SMB v1, upgrade to v2+

    The original SMB protocol (v1) has been deprecated for years, known to be very insecure (remember WannaCry?).
    Current systems don't even support connecting to that by default. In Windows 10 - since v1709 - you'd have to manually activate the old "SMB 1.0/CIFS client" feature to access this picture frame. And that is a BAD idea to have it enabled on a regular basis (makes you vulnerable to all kinds of attacks when connecting to any OTHER samba servers).

    My question is: do you even plan updating this (in firmware)? And when?

  6. Portrait Mode

    The 15 inch Pix-Star Frame has FOUR factory implemented hook-type mounting holes, two for Portrait and two for Landscape. I am told that the frame DOES NOT function in Portrait mode. Being you are enabling the frame to be mounted in the Portrait position, when will you implement the portrait display mode? Even implementing only the photos to be displayed in Portrait mode would be a BIG plus.

    By installing the portrait mounting wholes, you are definitely implying that it will function in that mode.

  7. Display image metadata (date taken, etc) (please)

    I love your frame, but it has one glaring missing feature! There appears to be no way to display the "date time original" EXIF metadata. Instead we have relatively useless display fields like "folder" or "file name".

    EXIF data is present in all recent digital images, and can be selectively added to older images using any common photo editor.

    I use my Pix-Star frame to show around a thousand photos from family archives, and people are always asking "WHEN was that taken" - the data is there, inside the image, and it sure would be nice to be able to…

  8. Improve bezel quality

    This frame is premium price due to its high level of functionality. However, the quality of the bezel is not great and doesn't give a quality feel. I would much happier with the product (even if it cost an additional £50) if the device had a better quality frame (high gloss black for example) and had a bit more substance to its weight.

  9. Turn off "[WEB ALBUM]" when displaying the folder name

    Please make it possible to remove the words "[WEB ALBUM]" from the end of the folder name when displayed. It's awful when it says something like "Hawaii Vacation 2018 [WEB ALBUM]" on my photos. I just want it to say "Hawaii Vacation 2018" . Thanks

  10. Set up RSS albums from web interface

    RSS feeds are very difficult to configure in the frame itself, since typing is so painful. Please add a way to configure RSS albums via the web interface, where cut-and-paste would make this a breeze. THANK YOU.

  14. Repeating reminders based on date

    To be able to setup reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, and other yearly repeating reminders. Looks like the only repeating reminders you can setup are by the day of the week.

  15. Distributing in Korea

    Do you have any partner in Korea to distribute your product.

    I'm strongly hope to distribute your product in Korea. I can make your product with Korean (Language) and I can also support KC certification.

    So, if you give me a chance to do, I'll do my best...

  16. external battery

    is there a way to use a power source so that I can see my pictures while holding the photo frame without plugging it in to a wall socket.

  17. Please add a 2 minute display interval..

    1 minute is too short and 5 minutes is too long. Please add something in between or a custom interval.

  18. Display the reminders for each day with the daily information pages (calendar and weather).

    I would like to use this feature to remind my mom of appointments but I'm afraid she won't be looking at the frame when the reminder is displayed. If the reminders were displayed with the daily information, she would be more likely to see this information. Thank you!

  19. Support newer top-level domains for account email address

    I would like to change my account email address (not my picture frame email address). My new address uses a newer ".email" top-level domain. When I try to change it, the settings page says, "Sorry, this email address is not valid." It is valid though, and I was wondering if we could get that changed.

  20. I need to remotely enable/disable the viewing of pics from an attached USB drive.

    While I can remotely select the albums to cycle through, I cannot find a way to remotely select whether or not the pictures on an attached USB drive are included in the slide show. Since a USB drive can contain thousands of pictures, this ability would be very handy to have. It also seems pretty trivial to implement.
