Customizing the VSX and HDX 7000 start up (boot) screen

Hi,

 

Can anybody please tell me how to customize the start up (boot) screen on a VSX and HDX 7000 codec?  I need to place a warning banner on the screen before users can log on. I know the HDX has a (default)  DoD warning banner but it is not word for word of the approved warning banner so I would like to have some sort of custom logo that displays the correct banner on both devices if that is at all possible?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank You,

Todd

Todd,

 

On the HDX (current release 3.0.5 or 3.1) it's easy to make your own banner.    If you click on the drop down box, there is "Custom" that comes up and it gives you a number of lines to make your own banner..

 

On the VSX (current release 9.0.6.x) there does not seem to be anyway to add a banner like this.

 

Good luck,

 

Gary M

Gary,

 

Thank you for the quick reply. Is there a way to change the boot up polycom logo to a custome logo on the VSX? If I can do that then I could just create a logo that has the banner in it.

 

Thanks,

Todd

I don't see any way to change the logo but there IS some screen saver and Logo text messages that can be changed on the VSX...  Can you test those and see if they will do what you want ?

Re: Customizing the VSX and HDX 7000 start up (boot) screen

I recently purchased a second hand Polycom VSX 7000 and it had a customised startup animation (I assume perhaps its an animated GIF?), so I know its certainly possible.

 

I am assuming its a simple case of swapping the default picture/logo with one of your own ?

 

I was hoping there was some kind of file access to the Polycom (eg. FTP or what have you) so you could at least browse files, but I haven't figured that bit out yet.

 

Anyone else in the community care to offer any help in this regard?
