How do I install the SignStix Player on a Philips panel?

SignStix Player can now run on Philips D-Line Professional Displays, which have their own built-in Android solution.  Install SignStix Player onto your D-Line panel as follows:

1. Download the following two files and save them to the top-level of a USB memory stick:
    - https://cms.signstix.com/philips/PHL_update.bin
    - https://cms.signstix.com/philips/update.zip

2. Power-on the Philips panel.

3. Insert the USB memory stick into a USB socket on the Philips panel.

4. Using the Philips remote control handset, launch the settings by pressing 'Home', then 1888. 

(If the screen does not change after the 1888, click 'Home' again to remove the overlay, then repeat the procedure but pressing the buttons a little faster.)

5. Using the remote handset, navigate to Settings > About > System updates menu.

6. Select the update.zip from the pop-up menu.

7. The panel will then reboot and install the upgrade.

8. Once the upgrade is complete and the panel has finished booting up, ensure (via the remote handset) that the input source for the Philips panel is set to 'Custom'.

9. If the SignStix Player is still not displaying, you may need to explicitly set the 'Custom App' by using the 'Home' 1888 procedure above, then navigating to Settings > Signage Display > Source Settings > Custom app.  Finally, select the SignStix Player from the list that appears.

Subsequent updates to the Player can then be applied in the usual way from Device Admin, as described here.
