    Help with custom clock NP screensaver

    I've just reinstalled LMS on a new computer and restored all my track stats. I've always used a custom clock screensaver on my Radios, but I can't remember how I originally got it showing ratings. I used to be able to see asterisk stars instead of the text "TRACKSTAT" like you see in my picture. Songs without a rating or from internet radio would be blank in that space. Please refresh my memory... What am I missing?

    I guess the problem is that the custom clock style got left behind on my old server, which is now dismantled. I still have the system hard drive. Is there any way I can get that clock style from the file system and reimport it on the new server computer?

    I must have saved mine somewhere... but where? Sigh.

    Edit: Well apparently I posted it here, but all the older attachments in this forum are gone. Poo.

    You might be able to find the "customclockhelper.prefs" file. On my system (debian) it is located at: /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/plugin
    If you find it, you might be able to simply use it to replace the current one on your new system. Otherwise, you should be able to use it to help you recreate or fix your clock style - it's a text file with the information for all your installed CC styles.
    Hope that helps!

    I've got a weird issue with Custom Clock Screensaver, the Now Playing (GW) one. It won't display the word Band if it is the last word of an artist. I don't know how long it's been that way, but I just noticed it today when THE BAND was playing and it just displayed the artist as THE I also tried J. GEILS BAND, again just J. GEILS The normal Touch Now Playing displays fine, just the Custom Clock Now Playing won't display right. Is this a new thing, is it just me (my artists are typed in all caps), or is it a know bug?
