So we just installed a Skype Room Systems v2 (Logitech Group) in our largest conference room. Here are our first impressions when it comes to the software. We have Exchange 2016 on-premise and SfB Online in O365.
Then there are some minor Logitech hardware first impressions but that's not related to Microsoft.

We ran into a lot of the same issues; since the client is so bare-bones, there's no means to pick in/out devices, and we'd have issues where the SRS decided to randomly re-default to another device for audio/video, so we wound up disabling all speaker/video devices in Device Manager except our Logitech PTZ for video and Trio USB for audio. So far, so good.
I've had a few requests from users for a bottom-based gallery view as well, instead of just on the side; getting that extra horizontal resolution matters when sharing spreadsheets.
All in all, extremely happy with SRSv2, and the users seem to love it so far, just some light bugs that could easily be worked out in an app update.

Thanks for the feedback! All very good points. We are working on an update coming soon that will address some of the issues you point out:

Tanks for letting us know. How would it be if we would connect to external displays today with the current version, duplicate (same content on both)?

Good to know, Dave. I was going to toss together a PS script to do our 'tweaks', but that takes some work off my plate. Any rough schedule on updates, and do those just push as part of Windows Updates, or will we need to do anything by hand to update the app?
Also, is there anything in the works for the additional gallery view options I mentioned above?

@Jonas Back I've tossed it around, but most of our rooms are already set up with a large single screen, or a projector, so it wouldn't be feasible yet. Rumblings I've seen didn't have those 2nd HDMI outs enabled until updates around 2Q; I'm hoping to get a spare internally for testing/demo to get people excited about that setup, it's a hard sell to management when I'm just waving my hands around a room trying to explain how it'd work.

Since we don't support 3 screen mode yet, I can't make any commitments on how build 18.104.22.168 will respond with 3 screens.
Its just a standard 3'rd monitor port. If you can configure Windows to extend monitor 1 to monitor 2 AND clone monitor 2 to monitor 3, I would expect the Front of Room screen to be duplicated. This isn't a feature claim, just a guess on what would happen.

You should have the Update 1 sometime in March. If you are enrolled in the preview program, you will get a build in Feb. Updates should install automatically overnight (assuming your environment does not disable automatic Windows Store Updates).
I will pass on feedback re Big Brotherness of gallery, but at this point, our gallery improvements are focused on supporting 2 Front of Room screens.

We have our First Room System V2 in place and discovered 2 strange things.
1.) The Room is showed offline and doesnt' updated his presence information. We logged on with the room account on a workstation, started the normal SfB Client, logged out, and from this time the presence information are working.
2.) When we invite the Room System the Meeting is shown on the front and the presence is still available. But when the meeting starts and nowbody joined the meeting, the presence is still shown as available, my regular SfB Client show as presence indicator "In a meeting". So it looks like the calendar is not correct elected. But the calendar processing works, because when i create a second meeting in the specified timeframe, the meeting will be rejected.
Anyone discovered the same behavior?

was the update pushed recently? Is there any easy way to check version? Had some funkiness the other day with no output on one of the HDMI ports on the Logitech, but the other worked, so I'm wondering if it happened in the last week?
Also, is there any workaround or method to get local content (HDMI passthrough) to show during a PSTN call? Scenario where a vendor using Webex brings in a laptop and wants to present locally, and dial in via PSTN, results in a screen indicating it can't pass content into the meeting (which is obviously expected on PSTN, but we still need to get the local content shown)

This is my first impressions about the SRS2. Maybe some points have already been answered in previous topics, sorry for that.
I'm testing a Smart Dock Logitech coupled to a Surface 4 with a Conference Cam and a Logitech Group and i have a couple of questions about my experience to share with other users. I would appreciate if any of you have experienced same issues.

Can i check something on the SRSv2, because the "Room-User" on a normal Client behaves as expected.
