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:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

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:

HWMonSPLCDJPEGLimit=0

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

HWMonSPLCDJPEGLimit=490

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?

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.

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, 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.

Aida64 icon disappeared, i was getting a message that I "don't have permission" when trying to run Aida manually.

I had to completely uninstall and delete it and then reinstall and apply update.

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.

Interesting, since few beta releases the lcd contrast is not going down anymore.

Did you change the software on hte lcd driver ?

No, we haven't changed anything recently about the Samsung SPF LCD support module.

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.

Couldn't get the glitch on usb.

I just noticed a lot of traffic on usb when the glitch occurs.

Could be the screen not responding in time (nak for too long)

      Hi,
      it would be nice if there was the possibility to send sensor values unformatted as a number or percentage, via a serial port.
      Similar to the LCD displays, only without formatting, or pure numbers with separators.
      Together with a small GUI.
      Background is the simple evaluation of the data with a microcontroller and display in different ways.
      I imagine not only LCD or OLED, but rather seven segment display, nixi tubes or an analog pointer display. That would create a lot of possibilities.

      Hey Aida Team,
      i have some issues with this Adafruit LCD wich is recomended. On the two Pictures you can see what aida should do and what can i see on the Display. The First line is completely erased and the screen is flickering. The Adafruit Backpack is set to 20x4 LCD. When the Display is updating you can see the right setting for a millisecond.
      But if i change the LCD Setting in AIDA to 16x2, and leave the Backpack in 20x4 mode,  the Screen isn flickering and the first line is there. I think you got a little problem with the 20x4 Driver. I have Searched for the code but i cant find it, to edit it if i found the failure. 
       
      Please give me response for this BUG. I have extra ordert this overpriced 50€ LCD for it. 
      Greetings Daniel from Germany

      We've added support for RoboPeak RPUSBDisp color graphical USB-connected LCD display.

      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / RoboPeak. Currently there is no Windows driver made specifically for RoboPeak displays.  But there's a workaround: you can use the AlphaCool LCD driver (Version 2.1).  The driver installation has to be forced due to the USB device ID mismatch (between AlphaCool and RoboPeak displays).
      The driver installation works as:
      Open Device Manager --> Other devices --> double-click on rp-usbdisp --> Update Driver button --> Browse my computer for driver software --> Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer --> Show All Devices --> Next button --> Have Disk button --> Browse button --> select acusbdisplay.inf file from the AlphaCool LCD driver folder --> Next button --> press Yes button on the Update Driver Warning message box.

      You can order a RoboPeak display from DFRobot at:
      https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1062.html#.UqfXHfSnoqX
      You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:
      https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta
      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64.

      We've added support for several Matrix Orbital USB character based and monochrome graphical LCD displays, including LK, MX, PK, VK, GLK, GLT, GX Typhoon, and their drive-bay and external variants as well.
      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD. The only thing needed to enable this feature is having the appropriate Matrix Orbital USB LCD drivers installed, and the LCD to be connected to a USB port. You can verify if your device is supported by AIDA64 by finding the device on the Devices / USB Devices page in AIDA64, and checking its Device ID. It should be one of the following IDs:
      0403-FA01
      0403-FA02
      0403-FA03
      0403-FA04
      0403-FA05

      1B3D-0121
      1B3D-0123
      1B3D-0125
      1B3D-0127
      1B3D-012C
      1B3D-0134
      1B3D-013E
      1B3D-013F
      1B3D-0140
      1B3D-0141
      1B3D-0155
      1B3D-0156
      1B3D-0157
      1B3D-0158
      1B3D-015E
      1B3D-0161
      1B3D-016A
      1B3D-016B
      1B3D-016C
      1B3D-0176
      1B3D-017B
      1B3D-01F0
      1B3D-01F1

      Due to their interface bottleneck BGK, EGLK, GLK and GLT displays perform display updates quite slowly, so visual discrepancies may be experienced when using the GLK (graphics) protocol on these displays. It is possible to use the LK (character based) protocol on GLK displays as well, which will work much faster. In order to switch between the GLK and LK protocols, you need to first disable the GLK protocol (in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD), and then enable the LK protocol on the same page. Ignore the error, and restart AIDA64 to apply the switch.

      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Abacom, AlphaCool, Digital Devices, LCD2USB, Mad Catz Venom, and SDC Megtron LCDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.

      We've added support for the built-in 160x32 pixel monochrome LCD screen of EVGA Z10 gaming keyboard.  You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / EVGA.
      [/
      Currently AIDA64 communicates with the LCD directly, using USB HID interface.  It collides with EVGA's own software (EVGA Unleash), so it's recommended to close that software before enabling EVGA Z10 support in AIDA64.  EVGA will soon develop a proper SDK/API for their keyboard, much like the LCD API of Logitech gaming keyboards, so that multiple software can put information on the LCD the same time, without collisions.
