I don't think you can automate that :(

我认为你不能自动化 :( 

in China,  AliExpress(taobao.com)
There are very many LCD monitors,and very cheap.
But I don't understand development
No way to use it.:(

Samsung SPF devices are not LCD monitors, but digital picture frames.  They simply have an additional feature (mini-monitor mode) that puts them ahead of their competitors.  But they're still not intended to be used as a regular PC monitor.

Hi, I'm new to this forum and new some of your experts advice:

Used my Logitech G19 for over a decade and it works great, but picked up a Samsung Photo Frame now: 800P.

Please, can someone explain to me, how to set it up? Read the AIDA64 LCD guide, downloaded their own drivers. A, btw, I'm on Win 10, 64 bit. What to do now? In details, please? :unsure: I can't install this driver: run the installer.exe, nothing seems to happen. Tried to update the driver in the device manager, Win keeps telling me that "the best driver is already installed" :angry: Would be nice to get some advice from you guys, thanks a lot!

Start AIDA64 first, go to main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / Samsung.  Enable Samsung LCD support there, and it should switch your 800P frame from Mass Storage Mode to Mini Monitor Mode.  After that happens, a new device will appear in Device Manager.  You need to install the supplied custom driver ...

... then, and restart AIDA64 to start using the frame with AIDA64.  Let us know if you get stuck during that process.

First of all: SORRY! I relied on the email - notification and didn't check this thread.

Just tried as you described, but it didn't work: the device connects as a storage device (800P). I open AIDA64, activate the Samsung LCD support. A status appears (Switching..., in blue letters). After 20 seconds or so, an error appears: "USB device not found", in red letters.

After that 20 seconds delay you need to install the custom driver.  And only after the driver is installed AIDA64 will be able to pick the device up as a USB device.

Just tried to do so, but I failed :( I went to the device manager, but no new device had appeared. The device has to entries under portable devices, "800P" & the drive letter of the mass storage. Run the installer_x64.exe, but nothing happend. What is the device supposed to be called after I activated the Samsung support @AIDA64? Something like unknown device?

We've tried to replicate the issue using our own 800P device.  Apparently it works properly under Windows XP, but under Win7 and Win10 the device fails to accept the "switch to mini-monitor mode" command when AIDA64 issues it.  Even more strange is that it fails to accept the command when Samsung's own Frame Manager software issues it.  So the device seems to be unable to work at all in mini-monitor mode with Windows 7 and Windows 10 :( We've tried to come up with a workaround, but no luck so far.  We will try to figure out a special way to talk to the device, in a hope that we can get it somehow to switch to mini-monitor mode using alternative methods.

Hello
First I apologize for the bad english. I am from Germany and work with Google Translater.
I have the same problem with the spf 85H, Win 10 instaliert. It does not switch from mass storage device to mini monitor.
Driver can not be installed (DOS window opens for a few seconds)
It is said that he can not find libus0.dll (Error: Can not find DLL (libusb0.dll))
Is there already a solution or should I get another screen? for example EVE2-70G with USB adapter.

Are you sure the device cannot switch to Mini Monitor Mode?  I'm just asking because when AIDA64 says it cannot find libusb0.dll, it usually means the device is ready (in Mini Monitor Mode), and the issue is on the DLL side.  You can then download and install the Samsung SPF LibUSB driver from the following link:

Thanks for your effort! Still sad to read, since I searched for quite a long time to get this frame, after I checked your .pdf list of recommended displays :unsure:

I know, it's a complicated issue, since the frame still works well under Windows XP... And probably under Windows Vista as well.

Yes, the screen does not change to the mini monitor mode.
The driver I have already tried to installieren, it opens for a second, a DOS window and more does not happen

After the "Cannot find DLL" message, try to open Device Manager, find the device for the Samsung frame, and try to install the Samsung SPF LibUSB driver manually.

Thank you now it works.
I have Corsair Link to version 4.8.3.8 downgrade otherwise Link had lost the connection to the fans.
A problem is still here. After about 5 minutes the display stops updating itself. Aida continues to run normally.
If I restart Aida, the displaywill run normally again until after 5 minutes it stops updating

Can you please check if the device is overheating after 4 minutes?

After I had the display completely de-energized for 1 day, it is currently running without any problems.
It does not get hot either.
Strange, I'll keep watching

      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-011F
      1B3D-0120
      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.
