New LCD device support: Samsung SPF Digital Photo Frames

Recommended Posts

Anything I could do to help with this?

Yes, we've just added a new, hidden option that you can use to tweak the JPEG limiter by yourself, and so try multiple values without us having to alter the main AIDA64 code base. Download the new AIDA64 beta from:


Go to AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences, and simply press the OK button. Close AIDA64, go to AIDA64 installation folder, and open the AIDA64.INI file in a text editor (e.g. Notepad). Find the following line in there:


And change it to a value below 500, e.g.:


That will effectively limit the JPEG frame size to 490KB. I think the actual limit will always be an exact multiply of 64KB, but it's just a theory that has to be verified. If my hunch is right, you will still experience issues at 490KB, 480KB, 470KB, etc, and it will only work reliably when you set it to 448KB (7x64KB). Please let me know how it goes.

I was thinking, any way to make the text change color according to value?

What sort of hardware monitor value type are you thinking of? The colour of a Simple Sensor Item label?

To all users of SPFs: I found the way how to control SPF brightness. I found the way how to switch back to storage mode after AIDA exit (however developer already knew it). I send this to developer

Would be great to add it next to the jpg 0-99 field ^^

Try to lower the compression setting even more, and see if it helps. As for the LibUsb drivers: you can only install them when the SPF device is in mini-monitor mode. Try to remove the Samsung drive

No glitch anymore for my MP612B / SPF-83H / BT08PS

Thanks !

Sounds great, thank you :) It could be because in your case we're using an exact multiply of 64KB. Let's see how it goes with other frames ;)

Maybe simple sensor.

Just like Bars of Sensor Items change colors according to preset values it would be great if text could do the same.

If any value jumps above a preset threshold to make the text yellow or red or any other color.

I send this to developer, but create these options only for my person would be strange, so vote here whether it's someone else.

Last update messed the application up.

What did happen? What didn't work?

I had to completely reinstall and lost my LCD panel in the progress.

I'm sorry to hear that, but please note that all you have to back up is the file AIDA64.INI that you can find in the AIDA64 installation folder. That files includes all settings and all LCD + SensorPanel layouts. I'd recommend you to do a regular backup of that file, along with your Documents folder and other important files and folders.

would be good to make an auto backup before each aida64 update to your email address written in aida64 ^^

Such measures shouldn't be necessary. The update does nothing else than download a ZIP package and extract it to the AIDA64 installation folder, by overwriting the old files. AIDA64.INI is never included in update packages, and the update process doesn't reconfigure AIDA64 either.

The problem with your ZIP package instead of an installer is well.... You know about windows security stuff...

Windows likes to block extracted .dll and similar files if they are not extracted from an Installer.

I've seen it happen with other apps so maybe that's what happened here, I'm not sure.

Even when I run Aida after the update i get the "Open File - Security Warning" message box.

Upon the disappearance of the Aida64 icon and not able to run it i had a process called "Aida_updater.dll" or something like that in my task manager.

In my SPF-107 build 3235 several weeks works without any issues. Thank you.

But in build 3249 I don't found CPU temperature, GPU temperature & usage, +5/+12 voltage.

In AIDA64 Build 3540 we've had to transition from the old (classic) digitally signed kernel drivers from the new, SHA2 digitally signed EV (Extended Validation) kernel drivers. The new EV signing will soon be mandatory to use kernel drivers under Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. That necessary move however rendered the old kernel driver inoperable under such Windows 7 64-bit installations that don't have all the security hotfixes applied properly. Windows 7 should pop up a message box about this issue, claiming that the AIDA64 kernel driver is not digitally signed. Which is of course not true: the kernel driver is signed, but Windows 7 cannot recognize the SHA2 digital signature. What you have to do to fix it up is apply the following KB hotfix package: KB3033929. You don't have to apply the rest of the available hotfixes to make AIDA64 work -- although we usually recommend to have all available security patches to be installed, it's just common sense ;)

I fixed in the ini the max jpg size to 64 KB and there are still few miscolors , rarely. Must be something related to another stuff.

64KB is very low, I don't think your device (or any other Samsung SPF device for that matter) would expect that small of an image. 256KB sounds more realistic.

      hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

      i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
      on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?
      also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

      i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 
      any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
      Thanks folks.

      Hey guys!
      Im hoping for some input regarding my question. I saw, AIDA64 is supporting a lot of different displays and interfaces. Now which one to choose? Heres some more input from me about what im looking for:
      [Mandatory] 5-8 inch LCD display [Mandatory] only USB powered [Mandatory] black frame design to match my case, if possible [Optional] A flat, not too thick one [Optional] small bezels if possible [Optional] No buttons neccessary, i want to place it inside of my case. [Optional] an internal USB connector to directly connect it to the motherboard At the moment im using some Aquacomputer Vision OLEDs which are working fine. But i can already see some burn in and they are pretty small. Since theres no LCD coming from Aquacomputer anytime soon, im thinking about using AIDA64 to get my data on screen. I have 3 of those OLED on each of the drive bay covers, this is more or less the space i have available
      I have attached a screenshot of the system with the OLEDs and their current placement for you to visualize.
      Thank you for your suggestions!

      Hey there,
      Installed the new card but i do not see all the sensors, like i did on my 2080 ti.
      Also, when the GPU is idle (low clock) the GPU Clock field on my sensor panel and LCD appear and disappear sometime. Also,
      app takes way longer to load.
      If any logs are needed just let me know.

      Hey, new to Aida64 so be gentle,
      I have 2 Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen display. One has a pi connected to it and the other is just the panel. The panel has just a usb port and a micro usb port. What's the easiest way to get this up and running as an external monitor? I've been running ModBros but I'm looking for something more customizable. 
      Also, other then the one forum post, is there anywhere to get templets to get a start from and build off of that?
