Why does the device screen turn black when Netflix video is played through InstaShare or HDMI connection from a laptop or Macbook?
This problem is related to HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) issues.
Netflix does not allow video content to be played though external monitors.
Therefore users won’t be able to view video content via external displays through HDMI or InstaShare mirroring.

Why does my interactive flat panel (IFP) show white stripes onscreen or crash repeatedly when I try to enable iMirror via InstaShare from my iPhone or iPad?
The issue typically occurs due to an out of date iOS version on your iPhone or iPad. Make sure your device runs the latest version of iOS available. For iOS 12 and later, you need to use InstaShare app version 1.5.0 or later to resolve striping and crash issues.

Why can't I pair my IAM (Identity and Access Management) account with AMS (Account Management System), DMS (Device Management Solution), or X-Sign Broadcast?
Currently, AMS, DMS, and X-Sign Broadcast may all only be paired to one unified IAM admin account. If different IAM admin accounts are used, pairing will fail. For example, if DMS is paired already to an IAM account, you won't be able to pair AMS or X-Sign Broadcast with a new IAM account unless other BenQ services (EX: DMS) are deleted. In essence, AMS, DMS, and X-Sign go together with one IAM account and all need to be unpaired to switch IAM account association.
If you would like to pair software with a new IAM account, please delete the devices in associated BenQ services (DMS, AMS, Broadcast) from the corresponding web site. If other BenQ services are deleted but still encounter a pairing issue, please record the MAC address and contact your local BenQ service center for further assistance.
Why can't I set up an email account on the unit using my personal Gmail address?

Go to Google Account > Security > Less secure app access > Change it to ""ON"" to lower security level.

Why is it required to install the "Eumus Design Sound Cards & Media Devices" during the InstaShare installation process?
"Eumus Design Sound Cards & Media Devices" is a virtual audio card. As there are too many audio cards on the market with support for different Windows versions (Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and even older versions), in order to avoid compatibility issues with InstaShare, installing a virtual audio driver can solve any audio issues that you may experience while using InstaShare.
