We use the DSCS9 player; which apk to use?

Please select the standard Xibo for Android release file for a DSCS9 player.

I have linked the Administrator manual page for Upgrading Xibo for Android for further guidance.

Thanks, question was for version 2.0 ofcourse :slight_smile:


I have seen that you now support Philips LEDs

How does it work exactly ?

So to be clear, it’s the LEDs on the sides of some Philips commercial displays.

You define commands to control the LEDs as you would for any other command, the commands are:


ok thank you so much !

I can now set the led to blue via the schedule option but cannot do this in a layout in v2.

Can you tell me how it works ? I am a xibo.cloud customer and don’t see the shell widget in the list.

The Shell Command module is disabled by default for Xibo in the Cloud customers. Please do contact our helpdesk and open a ticket asking to have this module enabled.

Thank you

will do !

thanks for your help
