    ... okay, after I've installed the latest Designer, I see that this is actually designed stupidity.

    Homeseer: Really?
    You had a monitor that could be turned off via a function, but you threw that away?

    EDIT: Now, at least I can change the behavour of the button.

    Blank screen is not the same as "off". Actually, it's pretty damn far away.

    And the reason I am asking is that before the latest version, it actually worked like I wanted it to! I'll see if I can find the Youtube tutorials for the first version, it shows how it has worked until now.

    I didn't use the power button, but that little icon in the lower left corner. That turned off the screen, but the unit was still on and connected.

    Yes I agree it's a work around but it works none the less and it's the only choice given these screens can't be dimmed or turned off.

Even the Android Display setting for sleep after x many minutes does not work. And as you stated the Wi-Fi goes away if you click the power button. One of the main reasons I bought these was for the speakers and among other things wanted to use them as a chime when someone opened a door or window. However I don't want the display running all the time and if I turn it off with the button the device is totally useless. It is very disappointing to say the least.
    You can always substitute a blank black screen to simulate the dimming of the monitor.

    No monitor off after upgrade

    I just updated the HStouch version on the touchscreen (version 1), and now when I click the "monitor off" button on the default project, the screen does not turn off like it did before!

    The same with version 2.

    Why not?



    I thought that at least with version 2, I could use the power button on top of the unit, but that also disables Wifi (even if I though it shouldn't) so the connection to the HS-server is lost.

    Is there away that I can get this to work properly?
Working...
