I’ve searched the forum and understand that this is a known issue / bug. However, the response to everyone asking has been “This will always be there. Nothing can be done.” I think that this isn’t really a good answer. For Xibo to be able to handle any reasonably complex scheduling of screens this issue is one that can’t be simply ignored or brushed off.
If I have three layouts scheduled at any given time then I wind up with a bunch of black gaps throughout the 2-3 minute content rotation. It even flashes black when looping a single layout! Does nobody else find this frustrating or silly? I understand that there may be some technical considerations that make this a difficult problem to just fix but it’s kinda a big issue. I’d happily pay $20 / month per screen for Xibo with almost 20 screens if this bug feature wasn’t there. I’ll also happily pitch in $500 on a bug bounty if anyone is actually willing to tackle fixing it. There have to be some other people here who’d love to see that black flash gone.
I’m only frustrated because in every other respect Xibo is amazing! It works better than commercial solutions 40x the price and could otherwise unify and solve a lot of my problems.
That being said if there’s a solid workaround I’m happy to try that as well. Anyone have any input or thoughts beyond the standard “We love the black pause! We’ll always have it!”?
