RE: T46G Screensaver Image ?
Well I have not given up. I finally fully figured out the ring tone format. By downloading the ring tone files from Yealink here and looking at the WAV format, I was able to convert any MP3, etc to the proper format so it works.
Wallpaper was pretty easy too.

Now to figure out why the screen saver files do not work. I was hoping Yealink support would jump in here and help! If I figure it out I will update this post.

FYI, be careful messing around with the screen saver! I upload a messed up format and it bricked the phone. I had to send an Email to Yealink for the recovery files. Then had to learn how to setup a T F T P server to recover the phone. They responded same day with the needed info and I got the phone unbricked.

So just be careful.

FYI I love this phone! Using it with callcentric service and all is working great! Been playing with the XML browser stuff too. Massivly FUN Smile


OK I figured it out!

There are some steps you have to take as well as the proper format.

I found some .jpg files do not work depending on color depth and compression level. Must be a bug that wallpaper does not have.
So I stuck with .png format for the screen saver.
It must be 480x272 with a color depth of 24 bit.

Now even though you can upload more than one screen saver image, you cannot select them if there is more than one! It always defaults to system.jpg or the first uploaded one in the list. So to be safe make sure to delete all of the images you uploaded so only system.jpg is listed.

In the web interface select a Screensaver Wait Time FIRST... Yes you must do this for some reason. Leaving it never for some reason won't let you select an image even if you turn off never after. BUG...
Now that you have selected a wait time, click confirm and make sure the system screen saver is coming on.

Now select Screensaver Type and select Upload Picture. Then you will get the BROWSE button. Use that and browse to your .png file and click the upload button. Click confirm again! You need to do this for some reason to show it is uploaded... odd but you do.

Now this is the important part! Wait for the screen saver to come on the phone screen (it will be the system.jpg) while that is showing leave the Upload Picture selection set and use the pulldown to select the file you just uploaded. Then click CONFIRM at the bottom of the page.

BOOM you will see the screen saver image then change to what you uploaded Smile
When the Web GUI returns it will still say "system.jpg". Do not worry about this. It is another Web GUI bug.

Let me know if this worked for you.


UPDATE for multiple uploads of screen saver images.

Turns out you CAN select one from the list but to do it your have to turn off upload and set to system. Click confirm. Then set back to upload and select the image. Click confirm. Seems sometimes I have to do this twice for it to take.

BUT a cool feature!!!! If you upload multiple images each time the screen saver kicks in, it walks through the list of them. So if you have say 4 images it starts with 1, next screen saver start it's 2, and so on.... Love that Smile


Update #3....

Actually if you upload more than one image and they must be the same type, the screen saver will cycle through all of them Smile

Just found that out waiting long enough!
