Updates are automatic, when a new version is released, upon restarting the software it will check for new versions and prompt you with a button to apply the update and restart. If you don't want to use automatic updates, you can disable them from the settings panel on the software then simply download the latest version from the downloads page and run the installer. It will overwrite the old version and leave your licensing information and configuration intact. You do not have to reactivate or reconfigure the software.
All you need is a device to attach to your screens, such as an old PC, Mac or Raspberry Pi an internet connection and a TV screen.
Any old 1080p TV screen will be fine and any old PC will also work just fine as a "player" device.
The player is any device that is running the VuePilot software and connected to your screen. You can then control this device from anywhere in the world via the online dashboard.
Make use of those old desktop PCs or buy a small portable device, it's up to you.
We will be building Smart TV apps in the future, but for most VuePilot use cases any old computer or Raspberry Pi is going to provide a much more powerful platform for displaying things such as webpages and dashboards on screens, whilst offering the ability to connect a keyboard and mouse for configuration and adjustments.
Any Windows, Mac or Linux computer. You can also use a Raspberry Pi (3 or above) for a tiny powerful player device.
You do not need special hardware, nor do you need to buy anything from us, you can use any old machine you have laying around.
Please see the following post for a description of common hardware and usecases for TV dashboard setups: https://www.vuepilot.com/support/article/hardware-requirements/

This is usually caused by an invalid certificate or the usage of a "self signed certificate".
If you open the same page in Chrome and it informs you that the page is insecure and that you must manually permit it, then VuePilot will simply display a blank white page.
Self signed certificate support is disabled by default for security reasons, but you can enable it from the settings panel of the VuePilot software, look for the setting named "Self Signed Certificates

If you no longer have access to a machine but it still has a license attached to it you can deactivate it from the dashboard or contact us
and we can release the license for you.
It's always better to perform the deactivation from the software yourself however as there are a number of other cleanup steps that happen on your account.
