    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.

    • 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.

            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.

            • 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.

                before a video plays, it shows this screen that proudly tells me that a video is about to play. Why?

                  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.

                          • 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.

                                      Just wanted to say thanks for a great product. My 91 year old mother feels like she connects with her family when she sees the photos they add daily.
                                      She doesn’t have internet service but I put a hotspot in her home and it works great.

                                        • 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.
