    Xibo 1.0.6 has been released. I upgraded today, but found you need to delete the old 1.0.5 folder in /var/www and replace it with the 1.0.6 one.Otherwise no problems yet (but the timeline option in the layouts right click menu does nothing?)

    Has anyone got solution to restart xibo client from server PC or other PC. Is there any bat file we could run to restart the client?

    I've created bat file which restarts when hotkey is pressed from client pc. But i want to restart it from server or other pc. Is this possible? Please Help!

    Restart Code: Save at .bat (You will also need to create a sortcut for Opening Xibo Client. As you can see I've saved it in C:\.......)

    taskkill /im XiboClient.exe
    start /max C:\Command\XiboClient

    Then you can create a sortcut for the bat file and add Hotkeys.

    Use PsExec which will allow you to remotely execute that BAT file, which will restart the XIBO client.

    I was able to get a DVB-T signal onto my Xibo layout by making a webpage with VideoLAN embedded onto it. The client does need a USB DVB-T stick and TV Aerial though.

    I'll dig the code out on Monday.

    Or you could use something like xcmd to execute remote commands

    Can you not do it in phpmyadmin? Create 4 more days, and copy the values from the 1st day into the rest. Backup your db first though as it may break it.

    At last check there certainly wasnt a way to do it in the interface.

    Cant you just create a new layout using the canteen template make your changes then save it as a new everyday template?

    Or just create an each day layout using the canteen template? Then amend what you need.

    When you have the layout open you right click on the background and save as template then use that to create new layouts
