NOTE: D.Play can only broadcast one channel at a time. If you are in the broadcast of one channel, you will not be able to switch to another channel.
4. Lock rundown list
By clicking on the button for locking access to the rundown list, we can disable the changes on the rundown list.
- rundown list is unlocked and changes are possible
- rundown list is locked and changes are not possible.
NOTE: Locking the rundown list option exists to prevent accidental changes in moments when the operator is not near playout and not forbidding anyone from approaching. For this reason, we do not have a password, just a lock button.
5. Switch to today’s rundown
If you are in another day, i.e. on another rundown list, clicking on this button will return to the rundown which is in the broadcast.
6. Select daily rundown
D.Play works on the principle of daily playlists. Every day is separated into a separate list that is released one after the other. In the window for selection of daily rundown lists, we can select the date for which we want to create the list. The window is made to show seven days.
- date in list (work day)
- date in list (weekend)
- date of actual rundown list
By clicking on the date of the current active list, you will open the calendar in which you need to select the date to which you want to switch.
It is possible to leave the calendar only after the date is selected. This means that if you want to keep the current date, it is necessary to select the same date in the calendar.
7. Lock playout screen
By clicking on the lock the monitor button, you will disable any work on D.Play and the screen will show the unlock window.
NOTE: Locking the monitor option exists to prevent accidental changes in moments when the operator is not near playout, and not to forbid anyone from approaching. For this reason, we do not have a password, just a lock button.

Minimizes program to taskbar.
By clicking on “Exit” button, the program will open the prompt window:
YES – Turn off D.Play and stop the broadcast.
Leave Engine started – Turn off D.Play, but leave Engine started. Until the broadcast of the current asset is completed, the program will not be interrupted. This gives you the time to make the changes you want and to restart D.Play (D.Play will continue to broadcast). This way, you (usually our technical staff) can make some program changes (update) and avoid the interruption of broadcasting.
