Good Day,
Just purchased the TinyScreen + package, pre-loaded with video, plug, and Play - Nice. I am building a model, it has a display screen, plan to install a tiny screen in the model so when powered it will loop play the .TSV file on the display panel in the model. I noticed when I power up the TinyScreen it requires interaction, press the button to select a video, then select the button to play video. QUESTION: Can button selection be bypassed and the single video file placed on the micro memory card begin playing and remain playing (loop) until I power off the display? As it stands now the Tiny Screen requires interaction (press buttons) for any TSC file to play and once the file completes, you have to select afile or press play again.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello there!

I have some great news. If you purchased the kit in the last year, it shipped with firmware that includes a settings menu. This tutorial shows how you can navigate to the settings menu, and what settings are available: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/TinyTV-Tutorial/

The settings include "Loop" and "Autoplay" modes that should work perfectly for your project.  You can also elect to use a different remote with the IR settings if that could be of use!

If you have an older kit, you can upload the newest firmware using this tutorial: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/Tiny-Video-Program/

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Would love to see the model you end up building when you're finished! The hardest part of selling cool hardware is that we almost never get to see what happens with it  :'(
