Application-Autostart after Power-On possible?

Post by q4z1 » Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:39 pm

Hi there,

I did just succesfully downgrade the UE40D6500VS and installed the SammyGo App. Thanks to the excellent Documentation of this forum, this app automatically starts, when I turn on TV. Everything is fine so far - I have ftp-access, and so on...

In the next step I would like to start (for example) the internal WWW-Browser with a predefined URL (in Fullscreen-Mode).

I read many Posts here, but I did not find an answer to this special question.

Does there exits a sort of startup-/ or post-execute-script in the SammyGo App, where I can enter the execution of the WWW-Browser?

I am very familiar with Linux-Systems - so I hope, only a small hint is needed?

Thank you for your help!

:(

It seems, that there is no answer for this question.

Is it because I missed reading something in the Forum?

I read about Autostart with ContentLIbrary games or modifying exe.img (or dump of) ...

... any directional hint which might give the success I desire?

I downloaded the Samsung Smart TV Developer IDE for Eclipse - developing an app in Java won't be a problem - if needed.
... but how exactly about autostarting this (or any - like the WWW-Browser) (SmartHub) App directly after Power-On?

Please help!

Thank you! :-O

problem is that tv's api not support java, just javascript

Please help!

Hello arris69,

Thank you for the reply.
problem is that tv's api not support java, just javascript
My fault :) I was a bit 'Android thinking' where most Apps are coded in Java.
JavaScript won't be a problem, too.
set it as "ticker" (SmartHub->Settings->Service manager->Ticker Autorun)
I do only find SammyGo, ChannelInfo (or what it is called) and Social TV as an entry to choose for Ticker Autorun.

Do you know, where I can edit these entries and/or add an entry?
As SammyGo got listed after Installation, there should be a way to add an entry, i suggest.

Thanks again.

coding is not the problem at all, but the limited javascript api (no usable filesystem operations etc...)

guess in widgets config.xml

I really like what's being explained here, and i like to do the same for the TV's I have over here...

However, I read the "read this first" page on the SamyGo wiki home page and all the warnings really made me doubt whether I should get myself into this :? ....

So I was wondering, is there an easier way to do this? It seems that the "only" thing that needs to be done here is add the web browser to the list of ticker apps, so that it can be autorun when the TV starts. (I only have Social TV and OFF as options currently). The description up here makes it sound like all it needs is a change to some .xml file on the Samsung TV. (I guess that accessing that file is the big issue here.)

I have 2 Samsung UE40ES5500 TV's, which are used as information screens, but I'd like to switch the TV's off and on automatically (which is doable) and have the web browser started when the TV goes on.

Any suggestions?

I actually solved this problem myself by creating a user-app using the Samsung SDK that loads the web page and has "ticker" set to "yes". I then set the app as autostart and there we go. So nothing scary to do.

Hello Experts,

I would like to autostart 2 apps (SamyGO + NTFS:rewritable) with the Ticker Autorun function.
How could I make an user app (or something esle) for this issue?

THX
