Hi Jon, thanks for getting back to me and sorry for the slow reply. Yes, that bar is what I was hoping was removable since I'm working with a smaller touch screen. Thanks again!

I don't know what the issue is, but I'm guessing it might be something related to the 460 having different length return values than the 462. I tested on the PC with both a 460 & 462, but only on the Pi with a 462. Looks like there may be some subtle differences in the way Mono is doing some of the data handling. As long as I can replicate it with the 460, it should be an easy fix.
I am still desperately hoping for some help on this.

I have the Desktop up and running fairly well on a Rpi2 B V1.1 with the latest Jessie install dated 01-11-2017 (screenshot attached)

Issues I've found

1. Must resize the desktop size in the .xml file... fairly easy...search for Object "BCS_Desktop" and change your <Size_W>####</Size_W> and <Size_H>####</Size_H>
2. Setup Option > Enable Customization doesn't work at this resolution...
3. The web based Alarm interferes with the physial alarm I have wired...I have to open a chrome browser, clich on the alarm and then I can reset the physical alarm
4. I cant get a full screen implementation...the Pi's task bar is there (I need to work on getting this to autostart and fill the screen.

Next

1. Custom Graphics -sorry Brewer's Hardware! I want my own stuff shown.
2. change button color i.e. heaters off = grey/heater on RED, pumps off = grey, pumps on =green etc.
3. Get autostart and full screen worked out.


Good work guys

Thanks so much for this. Downloaded, modified and will brew the first batch this coming Sunday. So far we're only using it to maintain temperature.
Prosit !!!

Hi All,

New to Rpi and BCS and curious how I can resize either the BCS app or RPi to include all the timers and rest of the buttons that JonW has so nicely configured already?
Thanks
