New LCD device support: Samsung SPF Digital Photo Frames

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the videos. Quite frankly, we've never seen such issues to happen about external LCD displays, and my first thought was that it must be due to a hardware failure or USB communication issue. Maybe under heavy load the USB interface is not passing the whole JPEG image properly from AIDA64 to the SPF -- but that's just pure speculation.

I will bring the usb analyzer from work to check if packets get corrupted when this occurs.

 

Are the packets send at constant rate using iso, or are you using bulk/interrupt ?

We only have control over the actual USB protocol as long as you're using our Samsung SPF drivers based on LibUSB. If you use Samsung's own mini-monitor driver, then USB transactions are controlled and governed by Samsung's driver.

Ok I see that you are using the bulk transfer, with 512 bytes.

The pc sends 512 bytes every micro frame (that's every 125 us in high speed mode).

The samsung photo frame cannot accept more data, it pings the rest till the next uframe.

Sometime it is able to accpet two packets per uframe.

 

 

see below:

I will now try to see what happens when there is lcd corruption.

Ok I found the problem,

the corruption occurs when the data picture exceeds 262KBytes.

 

Can you propose to the user in aida64 to set the jpeg compression level to avoid this situation ?

 

This depends of the picture that has to be drawned (type of graph/colors and so on).

 

The problem is not due to the time to send the picture (188 ms for 327 KBytes, wich is way below 5000 ms)

Thank you for the debugging. We'll add the requested option to the AIDA64 / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / Samsung page in the next AIDA64 beta update due in a few days from now.

Hi, Could add this feature to AIDA64: Pool for the presence of the samsung lcd every minute or so when it was not detected before.

I'm asking that because right now when I start windows, aida64 auo starts, but If I forgot to power the lcd before, it will never display anything,

I have to close aida64 and re start it again.

 

Edit: Thanks for the last beta, I can see a correct cpu package temperature now, on the x99 5930k.

Hi, the CPU throtling is not working on x99/5930k cpu.

The intel extreme tuning tool is reporting well the throttling's (power/current/thermal).

I'm afraid AIDA64 LCD module doesn't support that.

Thank you for the feedback.

I'm not sure if you're talking about the classic Intel CPU throttling value there. Throttling is a single percentage value that shows if the CPU is overheating at any given time. If you mean a different throttling value, then please show us (with a screen shot or a link) what you mean.

I'm talking about the thottling that is supported on new cpu/chipset, that controls not only the max temp but also

the max power, the max current. This is all controllable in the bios of x99 platforms.

 

See below a screenshot of the intel extreme tuning utility that shows them being triggered by OCCT heavy test.

Is this the update ?

 

PowerAdjust 2, PowerAdjust 3 sensor devices support[/size]

That is one of the new improvements of AIDA64 v5.20, but I'm not sure in what way would it be related to your computer.

Hello,

 

I cannot find where the preference file of aida64 is located.

 

I would like to just pick back my lcd settings after re-installing windows.

 

Could you help me ?

Preferences settings are stored in the AIDA64.INI file that you can find in the AIDA64 installation folder. You can also use the Export button on the LCD Items page of the Preferences to backup your LCD settings.

      Would be nice if you could rotate output 90 degrees in AIDA 64 LCD config for Logitech ARX.
      This, so you can get tablet mode.

      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

      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.
