Tournament Manager - Raspberry Pi Not Starting Display

I have flashed and updated 5 new Raspberry Pi 4s for a TM display. When I configure them through tournament manager the only thing that happens when I click save display settings is that the name of the display will show up under the IP address but the display won’t ever leave the IP screen. I am using Windows. I am not sure what the problem might be. I saw a thread on the forum already, but they did not have an answer. Thanks for your help!

This could be the new TM update, but I might be wrong. Can you link the other thread about this problem?

I was the one with the other issue. It turned out to be that Lanschool was installed on the machine. Once that was removed, it worked fine. You may have some other issue, but TM needs to listen to port 5000 on the machine. If anything else is using that port, you could have issues. Try to close down everything you can to see if you can get it to work, or use networking tools to see if anything is using that port.

I am not an expert, so everything I said could be quite wrong! But I hope it points you in the right direction.

I had a different issue on a different computer. The school’s policy is different depending on if the device is on the school network or on a private network. While you could just try to disable the firewall, it’s best to just allow the vex applications directly.

This will give you a list and then you can find the VEX programs and let them through. If you can’t do it this is what your IT people may need to do. But it’s common for school computers to have additional policies in place to protect the school’s equipment.

Thank you, everyone, for your help.

I ended up allowing access through the Firewall and it fixed the problem.
