Just thought I would share my luck with the Intel Compute Sticks.
We currently have 100+ deployed running 1.8.1 windows client. The stick we are using is BOXSTK1AW32SC.
These have worked very well so far, but I would STRONGLY recommend deploying them with windows embedded 10 vs the windows home that comes on them. We are now having to reimage the devices so that we can have better control on things like windows updates and remove all the crap bloatware like Cortona and games/ads.
Other things I have had to fix. Disable windows search service and delete the program data for the windows search “database”. This “database” grew to over 15GB on some of my devices and caused them to run out of storage space.
Also, if you never reboot the devices and you are constantly changing the running content, you should look at adding something like a nightly reboot task. We did this because if Xibo never restarts, it seems it doesn’t clean up old unused media files. In our environment, we are passing content every minute, so space really ads up and the device can run out of space in a few days if you Xibo client doesn’t clean those files up.
Overall, I think the Intel stick makes for a wonderful Xibo player and allows for cheap deployment of a digital signage solution.
If you have any questions, please feel free to message me directly. I have been working with Xibo on an Intel stick for over a year now and might be able to help with questions/issues.
