Resume kiosk play after projector standby

Postby chris.rohde@christiedigital.com » Sat Apr 15, 2017 1:15 am

I have PB Kiosk auto playing at startup like its supposed to. (Thanks Markus)
However, when the projectors are put into standby, and then resumed the next morning, the displays remain dark until jiggled with a mouse. How do I disable whatever is causing that? All the obvious power settings are set to "Never".
Any ideas?
Thanks

Hello Chris,

Windows seems to turn off the outputs. Simply set the "Turn off display" to "Never" in the Power settings.

Yes. All power settings are set to Never. Once the projectors resume, there are black screens and a mouse pointer.
Does not restore properly until reboot.
Any other ideas?

Try bouncing fullscreen out and in.
Can be done with a WD script.

Hello,

another idea: The projectors (in standby) tell the GPU that no display is attached. Windows will then proceed to disable the display. Can you fix the EDID (Quadro cards) or use EDID emulators.

Don't think so,
He's got the new Compact Players.
