ensure you are looking at the proper size of the area you are importing an image for.  I do the same as you and create in publisher and you need to make sure the pixel size is the same size you are making your publisher image.
example - a 384x864 image within magicinfo i make in an 8" wide by 18" call publisher document.  i found an online calculator that changes inches to pixels.

I am attempting to help someone get their templates to display correctly on their Smart TV's. This is a country club that utilizes the signage for upcoming announcements.

We're creating the images within Publisher and exporting them as jpg's. We then import them into MagicInfo, assign them to a schedule, then start the image rotation.

The issue we're having is the images are being displayed funky on the TV's themselves. Meaning, the images "preview" correctly in the Magic Info software, but when they display on the TV they are cut off (including words of the announcements themselves).

Is there somewhere that will walk us through how to correctly import an image (with image settings) and set a schedule so the images will display correctly?

Thank you!

Is it not easier to created a user with the rights to configure content items and with the version option under a content item to update the content item.

When this item is in use in a playlist and/ or schedule the change will flow in this.

You can find the version option when you open an item, in the pop-up screen click version and update file (see screenshot).

Kind regards Pepijn.

We ended up switching from "CIFS" to "Upload Content".  I put the .ppt out on a shared network location.  When they update the PowerPoint file which is on the network share, they then go into Magic Info and "Delete" the old content and do a new "Upload Content" to have the new ppt running. 

In order:

The end user updated the PowerPoint .ppt on the network share.
They log into Magic Info under accounts I made for them with limited access.
SCHEDULE:  They have to change their schedule running their ppt. to a .jpg that I put out for them while they are updating their "Content".  (It's just a placeholder while they are updating the Content).
CONTENT:  They delete their old Content file and upload the new Content (the .ppt they have saved on the network share).
SCHEDULE:  They go back to their schedule and change it to the new Content they have just uploaded.
We've been doing this for 5 location for over a year now since CIFS stopped working for us.

If you have any questions just let me know.  This was at first a learning curve for the end users involved but after I made a step by step guide for them they run with few issues.

Was your issue resoled? I have the same problem setting up the CIFS content. Our CIFS share is configured without any password but its a required field within the MagicInfo software. I also tried using my domain account which has admin rights without any luck. Please Help!

Dear Mariats,

When using MagicInfo server to sent content to your screen, you can do the following.
On the left side you choose content>Create content>then choose widget-choose the word icon now you can add the url in the upper part of your screen.

Hope this will helps you.

Kind regards,

MagicInfo-I / Tutorial for displaying a web site on MagicInfo
« Last post by mariats on November 16, 2018, 01:00:16 PM »
Dear all,

I would like to ask if anyone could provide some guidance regarding how to display a web site (using the web site's url) on a Samsung screen through MagicInfo.
Is it possible and how? This is not so clear through the videos provided in youtube and the tutorials I have found so far.

Thank you in advance for your help.
