Configurations within the XML

Some of the settings are only available via uploading an XML to the system and rebooting the device. This includes custom wallpapers and also the new feature in this release of disabling the local content on both screens when not in a call. Here is the line in the XML config. When set to false, it means the content will only show on one of the screens if you have a dual-screen setup.

    <DuplicateIngestDefault>false</DuplicateIngestDefault>

Once you have written the XML file, you transfer it to the MTR system to the folder below and reboot. It will then load those settings.

C:\Users\Skype\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.SkypeRoomSystem_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

You can download a sample of the xml here.
