*** THE LATEST VERSION OF THIS PLUGIN CAN BE FOUND AT www.gregbrown.net/squeeze ***
The latest version of the plugin has graphical weather icons and optionally shows game score and time information for MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL, and college football and basketball as well as stock/market information from Yahoo finance.
Attached to this message is a new version of SuperDateTime screensaver plugin which is now fully configurable. The plugin has been tested for v6.x of SlimServer. See below for installation instructions.
This is a screen saver based on the datetime screensaver. It shows the current date/time along with the current temperature and "feels like" temperature for a given city.
The screen saver also optionally checks to see if a particular baseball team has a game scheduled. If there is one, the game time or score and inning information are displayed instead of the date/time every x seconds.
The city, team, and all related settings are user-configurable via the SlimServer server plugin settings web interface.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
ALSO - Could someone at SlimDevices please add this screensaver to the SlimDevices plugin page? Thanks!
# 1. Unzip superdatetime.pm file into SlimServer\server\Plugins\SuperDateTime folder.
# 2. Restart slimserver.
# 3. Ensure plugin is enabled from Server Settings / Plugins web page.
# 4. Configure custom plugin settings (City, Team, etc.) from Server Setttings / Plugins web page.
# 5. Enable screensaver for when a player is turned off from Player Settings web page.

SuperDateTime Screensaver - Updates, discussion, and troubleshooting

Nice idea for a screensaver - I like to be able to see the temperature at a glance.
Couple of comments:
1. Is is possible to set the default to metric (i.e. centigrade) somewhere?
2. For some reason the maximum +ve offset from EST in the web interface is +9. There are places (like mine) where this can be +12 (or even +13 in winter). Having said that it doesn't seem to make any difference to the actual time displayed, which appears to be correct whatever offset is selected.
3. I think that music playback on the SB2 is being interrupted for a couple of seconds during the time that the plugin goes to goes to fetch the upadtes. This seems pretty consistent in my quick test.

I try to use the plugin on a SB1 with a display fo 2x40 characters.
I configured the SB to display great characters.
Ok, it can't display the degree-sign, so it shows a D, that's ok, but.. At the first two characters the plugin blanks the top part, so the zero looks like a small u...

What do you mean by "great characters"? Also, which first two characters are you refering to? Please give me an example of what your display is showing.

New Version: 3.4.2
As always you'll probably need to use FireFox or some non-IE browser to download the zip file in binary format from the forums here.
*** SlimServer 6.2 or later is most likely required. ***
Fixed NFL parsing to handle regular season data format.
Line one will now display the sport league pertaining to the game information in line two.
Added status indicator in top right hand corner of display line one.
- '*' is displayed while data is being refreshed.
- If a data update fails the sport abbreviation, or 'W' for weather will be displayed until a successful update occurs. Stale data from the last successful update will continue to be displayed.
- An alarm bell indicator is displayed during the clock display if an alarm clock is set and no other status is being shown.
Thanks for the windspeed modification.
I'll try to post an updated version that supports your windspeed modification natively.
