Settings for the Xibo for webOS Player and the monitor itself can be controlled in the Xibo CMS . This can be achieved via webOS Display Profile settings or by Commands sent directly to the Display.

This page will explain what settings can be set on the webOS Display Profile .

Navigate to the Display Settings page under the Displays section of the CMS main menu and use the row menu to Edit your webOS Display Profile.

This section will focus on three important tabs on the Edit form, On/Off Timers , Picture Settings and Lock Settings .

On/Off Timers

Configure to switch the webOS monitor on/off at specific times on specified days using the form fields.

Please note: when the monitor is "Off", it will not be able to receive content/schedule updates.

Picture Settings

Control various monitor settings such as backlight, contrast, brightness etc using the form fields. Click on the monitor setting and use the slider to set the range you require.

Lock Settings

Control usblock and osdlock by selecting true or false values with the form fields.

  • usblock - set access to any device that uses the monitors USB port.

  • osdlock - set access to the monitor settings via the remote control.

Keylock settings allow the User to completely block key input, including power on/off on the remote and/or the monitor itself.

  • Keylock (local) - set permitted key input for the monitor; Allow All, Block All or Power Only.

  • Keylock (remote) - set permitted key input for the remote; Allow All, Block All or Power Only.

It is also possible to send osdlock and usblock with true or false values via a Display Command

It is important to note that settings applied to a Display Profile will override individually sent Commands at some future point (most likely at the next collection interval) when the Display will revert to the original setting as specified in the Display Profile.
