HD2000 - General BrightSign Network Manager Question



First off, I love the interface. Very easy to maneuver on first go round. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> But, I haven't really looked at it too closely yet, I was reading the user's manual.

Before I go and update my software to the beta, Is there a way to use the Network Manager without an ethernet connection? Currently the location of the box is not accessible by ethernet connection, and was wondering if there is a way to use the new software and the Network Manager to create a show, drop it onto a CF/SD card and simply plug it into the box.

I was trying to click on the "help" button on the Network Manager page, but I think the link to that page is dead.

Thank you very much!

    There's a roundabout way to do it. If you have all of the files that are in the presentation.



    -Create the presentation on the website

    -Copy the files you put in the presentation onto the flash card

    -On the website, on the Myfiles page, select your presentation.

    -Then, scroll to the bottom of the list of files in the presentation, and click the "edit" link next to the playlist, "autoplay.bsp".

    -A popup window will appear. Click on the "autoplay.bsp" link, and choose to save the text file to your hard drive. Copy "autoplay.bsp" to your flash card.

    -Copy the autoplay script, autorun.bas, to your flash card as well. You should be using version 2.0.35 or later of the autoplay script.

    I have one other question.  Will the lines in the autoplay.bsp

    They won't interfere with playback, but you can remove them.

    Where would I find autorun.bas version 2.0.35?  I must be blind or something as I can't find it anywhere <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> .
