setup_sos_env_01.pngBefore device deployment check the compatible device FIRMWARE as it is very important to have tested FW. The FW for each device is documented on the Supported devices page. In case the device is not on the list, contact our support. In case of troubleshooting, pressing Info + 77 on remote control will bring up detailed system information. This information can be used to check for FW or in case support is necessary.

Attention Required: Android, in general, does not support application downgrade. Once you update to a higher version of the Core App, there is no other way to then reinstall on the device.

To exit from SignageOS app to Android launcher you need to press red button on the IR remote control and under settings choose the launcher which you need.

Mandatory SICP settings

To make sure your Philips display will support all device management features, you have to enable SICP over LAN settings.

Android 4.4-6.0:

  • Go to Settings > Signage Display > SICP Network Port.

Android 7.x:

  • Go to Settings > Signage Display > Network application > SICP network port.

Make sure that Main Switch is set to Enabled and SICP Network Port reads 5000 (Connected). Adjust both settings accordingly.

Attention Required: In order to prevent Android from displaying Android homepage and thus not showing your content, you must Enable Kiosk Mode (or Lock Remote Control) either through Box device settings or through API.

Always set the Remote Control Lock to enable via REST API or in Box on the device detail's Settings tab.

Once display started with signageOS App you will see short Verification code in the middle of the screen.

To deliver the best performance we highly recommend to remotely update Android webview. The preinstalled version is 39 which is a very old one. The package name for latest tested webview is v.62.0.3202.66 320206600 (00 = ARM architecture) and can be updated from Box.
