New LCD device support: Samsung SPF Digital Photo Frames

Recommended Posts

Well, I spoke too soon. The 105P turns itself off after a while if the LCD editor is not open.

What can I do to fix this?

 

I have the latest BETA installed.

Hi,

I disabled aero on win8.1 (set to max paerformance) , and lcd keeps working.

Seems to be a problem with aero.

Is that the g-sync or lcd font shaping ?

Do you use the libusb driver? What SPF model do you have?

Did previous betas work before? Do you use the libusb driver?

No, I got the frame today and I have the latest BETA and the thing just dies at random and it works after resetting AIDA 64 a few times.

 

And, no. I dont have the libusb driver. It says FrameManager Display adapter in device manager.

BTW: I know what a usblib driver looks like. I have one for my Alphacool display.

 

So damnit, if you CLAIM the frames do WORK with your SOFTWARE which I BOUGHT then keep the damn topic alive.

Put all the info into the first post: here is the driver, here is this, here is that, do this, and do that to make it work.

All I see is 5-6 pages of damn issues to read through and in the end maybe get lucky if ONE of the frames specified in the first post works.

That is just lame from your side to claim that something is SUPPORTED and then well... 5 pages of people testing the frames and failing at making it work.

About Spzljeni comment,

I would suggest to add a link in the lcd preferences of aida64 to download the libusb drivers.

 

 

I use libusb drivers, not Samsung.

Model is BT08PS.

I'm the one that was asking your the JPG compression level ;-)

Please cut us some slack. Samsung never provided a SDK or other programming manual for their picture frames. What AIDA64 does may not work with all SPF variants. Samsung made a lot of variants of those SPF frames, they offer multiple models with the same (e.g. "SPF-87H") designation, so it's a big mess. And since it's not documented (at least not publicly documented), for us it's a big headache to sort things out and find out what tricks do we have to use to support all the different SPF models out there. As you can see, a certain bug fix could help to get around issues with a particular SPF model, but in the same time the fix ruins it for others. It's not easy to go blindly, without documentation, but we're doing our best to sort out every single issue you guys are facing. It would be much easier for us to pull the plug and remove SPF support from AIDA64...

As for your issue, if possible, please uninstall Samsung Frame Manager and install our libusb driver:

http://download.aida64.com/resources/lcd/samsung_spf_lcd_driver.zip

It should help, as long as you wouldn't bump into the issue Xixou is having now with the latest beta. But we'll get around that by adding one more option to enable/disable the latest "Keep alive" workaround.

It also crashed with aero disabled.

Please change back the lcd code that was ok 3 previous betas.

Thank you for the info. As I've mentioned above, we'll get around that by adding one more option to enable/disable the latest "Keep alive" workaround. A new AIDA64 beta update including that fix will be rolled out in an hour or so.

Thank you.

It's working for now and more fluidly than with the previous driver.

I might have to play with the compression level and/or connect the frame directly to the motherboard and get a better cable for it.

Latest BETA did not wreck anything and I did not enable the keep alive packet.

Let's see if it disconnects during the day.

 

Now you could put that link onto the first post in this topic and tell people to install this driver when prompted and avoid installing Frame Manager completely.

 

I understand a lot of these frames are EOL devices and Samsung does not give a damn about them, nor do they offer the latest driver for them on their pages.

When I looked for frame manager for the 105P the first I found on the Samsung page did not support Win x64 at all.

It was by digging through this topic that I found that I should download FrameManager_Vista_64bit_V2.00.exe so putting a link to that onto the first post in this topic would also help reduce the mess, or you could just extract the driver software from the installation and offer both drivers for people to try out.

Connecting the frame to another USB port motherboard made Windows pull the old Samsung drivers back.
Quick fix, old drivers were deleted permanently.
Performance of the frame has increased a lot compared to when connected to a USB hub.

Another issue I have is the frame not turning off but displaying a black screen when connected to USB and Aida64 is not active or the PC is turned off.
Pulling the plug doesn't work as the frame is also battery powered.
I even tried programming the frame to turn itself off at a given time. It does not work while connected to USB.
So the only way for now is to manually turn the frame on and off.

I don't know if the buttons on the frame are supposed to switch pages in Aida64, but that does not work.
Not an issue as I can fit all of the info I need onto the frame.

 

Running on Win7 x64 SP1, the frame has the latest firmware already installed, using LibUSB drivers.

Thank you for the feedback. I'm afraid we have no information on how to handle the frame buttons. There's a good chance that they cannot be handled via the USB connection, but only the frame's built-in software can handle them.

If you disable Samsung LCD support, you can alter the state of the keep-alive checkbox. Let me know if it works with or without the keep-alive option enabled.

Thanks, the usb keep alive commands keeps the lcd alive ! Thanks, please enable by default that option on future aida64 releases !

Is there any chance of implementing a feature to use the frames in portrait mode?

There's no native (firmware) support for rotating the image in mini-monitor mode, so we would have to do the rotation at the end of the rendering process in AIDA64. And since Samsung frames also require compressing the rendered bitmap into JPEG, the overhead of the rotation + JPEG compression would be enermous :( It would have high impact on both CPU load and memory load.

      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

      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.
