New LCD device support: Samsung SPF Digital Photo Frames

Recommended Posts

I have a Samsung SPF87H frame that also only works for approximately 5 seconds. 

 

I'm running a clean install of Windows 8.1, with a registered copy of Aida 64 and the Samsung SPF drivers downloaded from this site.

 

Can you help get me running for more than 5 seconds? :-)

AIDA64 uses an unofficial, non-documented interface to communicate with Samsung SPF devices. If it doesn't work on your device, then I'm afraid we cannot help you out :( Only one thing you can try: in case you have a complicated LCD layout, you can try lowering the JPEG quality, but about the 5-seconds issue I don't think that would help :(

Hi thanks for your reply.  I have tried changing the quality to 50 %, I still only get a display for 5 seconds. 

 

Your reply does contradict the first post in this topic stating support for Samsung SPF frames in particular the model I managed to track down. Maybe this should be edited as I'm the second person to indicate problems with the SPF87H.

 

 

 

It now looks like I have to find an alternate display, can anyone recommend a USB display device that works ?  At the moment this is a disappointing outcome.

We've edited the first post, thank you.

How about using your cell phone or tablet display as a wireless LCD for AIDA64?

Thanks for replying Fiery.

 

I did briefly try using an old Ipod touch but couldn't connect to the IP address.

 

Ideally I would like a display big enough to show a number of sensors at the same time, that's why the photo frame option seems an ideal solution.

 

I would love to purchase a Samsung 800P but they seem impossible to track down in the UK.

 

 I'll keep looking. 

 

Final question, I was considering a Yocto Display, as an alternative.  Have you tested these displays and is it possible to have multiple pages as I'm not sure how much data could be displayed on the small screens?

We've tested the AIDA64 LCD module with Yocto-MiniDisplay and Yocto-MaxiDisplay, and they both worked flawlessly. But those are quite little screens, compared to a photo frame. And they do not feature buttons to change pages.

I try to use SPF-107H (LP10|PLERT/EN,  PID=$2036, VID=$04E8, firmware 1008) in Win7x64. It works only 2-3 seconds.

Do you use the Samsung Mini-Monitor driver, or our LibUsb driver?

Without installed "Frame manager" frame don't work at all. AIDA don't recognize it.

I can't install LibUsb driver - without "Frame manager" frame may be manually turned in "mini-monitor" mode for 2-3 seconds, after that it unconnect from USB.

For work I close "Frame manager" and start AIDA. It successfully turn frame from "storage" to "mini-monitor" and show picture, but only 2-3 sec. After that USB connection close.

Sad to hear that it doesn't work with either driver :( I've moved your device to the "not working" category in the opening post. I'm confused though, since it seems to work in some cases, while on a similar (or almost similar) device it fails to work. Maybe the issue is related to a certain hardware revision or firmware revision? Hard to tell, we have very limited knowledge about SPF variants :(

Maybe it will be helpful:

Controller of frame is MP630DTCG-B - http://www.modiotek.com.tw/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=62&Itemid=82〈=en
I try to use it in Windows similar to this projects:
http://web.media.mit.edu/~gracewoo/stuff/picframe/
http://www.puschmann.net/page/?page_id=62
But unsuccessfully.

 

Maybe this models (SPF-87H & SPF-107H) has "exit timer" and it close connection if frame frequency is very low.

I try to decrease LCD update time to 50ms (20Hz), but min in 5.20 version is 500ms. Can you expand this range to check it?

We've extended the update frequency down to 100 msec in the latest beta update to AIDA64 Extreme:

But, I don't think it would help. Please let me know how it works.

I try both: LibUsb driver from post #38 and Original Samsung.

The same result.

Does the every 500ms there are "Device Vendor_Device" command - two zero bytes anomaly happen with both drivers?

My mistake - correct name of command is "Function Vendor_Device".

This command sending by "Frame manager" to 0 point. I try to do it from custom application and get good result - USB connection is stable. Also I try to increase frame update time to 500ms. Now "Function Vendor_Device" (two zero bytes to 0 point) and frames (packets to point â„–2) sending from one timer - 500ms. USB connection is stable and pictures shows correct.

I don't think I can follow that :( If by Frame manager you mean Samsung Frame Manager software, then you have to uninstall all SPF-related Samsung software and driver before installing our LibUsb driver. Otherwise Samsung's software and driver may collide with our driver.

But, in case you've figured it out and now things are stable, then it's great :)

Concerning the switch back from monitor mode after a couple of seconds for some Samsung SPF I have found on "http://pyframe.blogspot.de/2011_12_01_archive.html" this information (it's from a python script). 

  # This control function is required to keep the frame permanently in Mini Monitor mode. 

  # When the frame is switched to Mini Monitor mode, it remains there for a few seconds, but 

  # then switches back, unregistering from the USB bus.

  # This function is needed only once after connection of the frame, but it does not seem

  # to do any harm when transfered with every picture transfer

  dev.ctrl_transfer(0xc0, 4 )    

 

Perhaps you can add this byte sequence to the contol code sent to the frame, to solve the problem of the not permanent "mini monitor" mode.

That seems like a very useful information, thanks a lot! We've already implemented it in the latest AIDA64 Extreme beta update available at:

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

Let us know if it helps to fix the disconnection issue.

If works for me (SPF 107H USB-ID 04e8:2035 / 2036).

Great (and unbelievable short time to make it happen)!

Your post came at just the right time to squeeze a new single line into the code before we rolled out the new beta update :) Thanks again ;)

Hi, since last two updates, my Samsung frame stops responding after few minutes.

It was working fine for months before.

      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.
      Cheers!

      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?

      i want buy Aida64 to show news at my LCD, but only hardware options. No RSS feed options to show on LCD.
       
      How can i show RSS at my LCD using Aida64?
    • By Soul--Reaver
      System:
      Asus Sabertooth Z77
      Intel 3770K
      Nvidia Geforce 1070
      Logitech Keyboard G510S
       
      Aida64 version: 6.25.5400
       
      I'm using the LCD in my keyboard and Aida64 to monitor certain system values.
      I've noticed that the CPU util percentages are not correct on the LCD display.
      The most obvious is that when the system is completely idle (CPU util.png), The LCD will never show a lower number then 28% for CPU7 Utilization (LCD CPU util.png) on the LCD.
      The other numbers are also weird or incorrect but that is more of a feeling i have. The other CPU utils feel weird because i never see 1% or 2%. It's always 10%, 11%, 12%, 14%, 22%, 28% etc. but never below 10% except 0%
      As shown in "CPU util.png" Aida64 is capable of getting the correct percentages, it just does not show them on the LCD display in my keyboard
      Kind regards
