RE: Fire OS version? by yehoshua in Mobile Apps

One option may be installing "Apps2Fire" on your mobile device. This can be used to install device programs on a Fire TV Streaming Stick across the network. It might work for the tablets; I haven't checked. This is probably the easiest solution, if it works.

There are also a couple websites out there which will access the Google Play Store and download the APK files from Play directly. I don't have the one I tried bookmarked, but it shouldn't be too hard to find, but be careful, to. I *think* the one I used is https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/.

Thanks, that took care of it. When I reloaded, I thought I would get the latest version, but of course it reloaded the version I already had.

RE: Now What? by akins in The Wave Pool

And we have watched your title change and become more impressive over the years -
does that mirror an increase in pay ??
We have seen lots of changes in  SSP over the years:
mostly for the better, a few not so hot.
This forum has been the first of my browser bookmarks,
but now is largely, and disappointingly, inactive.
One thing is certain - things change!

RE: 8.4 Shutting Down by George in Version 8.4

Just to clarify - is the application (SSP 8.4) shutting down or is the system shutting down?  

Did you have prior installs of 8.4 that did not behave this way or was this your first 8.4 install?

In any case, you should contact the support team so that they can take a look at this.

RE: Stage Monitor Settings by George in Version 8.4

You can set independent Slide Properties for the Stage monitor, which does include margin settings.  My guess is the if you have less real estate on the Stage monitor then you probably want to make sure the Shrink to Fit option is selected for the Stage monitor - this will make sure the text fits as expected.

If you need additional guidance on this contact the support team for a walk through.

RE: uicjk List by George in Version 8.4

OK - Glad this will work for you.

A few things to keep in mind for the Quick List:
  1. There is only one Quick List per display - you don't save them like programs. 
  2. The Quick List loads every time you launch SongShow Plus.
  3. Related to #2 -- If you add something to the Quick List but then change the source material outside of SongShow Plus, it can cause issues with SongShow Plus starting correctly.
