In an effort to reduce load on MySB, we are temporarily tweaking some text scrolling parameters.
As of today, we have increased the delay after each completed scroll by a factor of 3. There may be other changes in the future but I'll mention them here if so.
This is only temporary, early next year we'll push out a firmware update for all players that will bring improved scrolling performance and a much smoother scrolling appearance.

Thanks for the info. I use a local SBS but I'm glad to see continued support and improvements for "obsolete" products.

This didn't help as much as we had hoped, so we've now changed the scrolling mode to "Scroll once and stop" for players who have the default value of "Standard scrolling".

I am unfamiliar with "SBS". Can someone explain? Thanks!

SBS = SqueezeBox Server, the server program for SqueezeBox devices running on a computer
MySB = MySqueezeBox.com, online Logitech server (no computer needed)

Aha! I wondered too, why this was happening.
...I see (from my attachment) there isn't. I assume we just need to wait for MySB.com upgrade and/or firmware upgrade?
Any forecasts when? (I wouldn't hold you to them!)
Edit: PS: Surely this is an example where, although the SB clients are "slim", a LITTLE intelligence in the client could be sensibly used to scroll locally? ...thereby saving on both bandwidth usage and MySB.com processing load?

Thanks, Miles. I realised that, but what I wondered was whether MySB.com had maybe unilaterally changed all clients' settings to "Scroll once and stop" and users who knew about this could put it back to "Standard scrolling". In fact, they changed the behaviour of "Standard scrolling".
May I ask: Is the Standard scrolling (or even:... "Smooth scrolling"?!) re-enabled, if I update to 7.6's firmware (given that I use MySB.com all the time?)
(I don't really want to upgrade firmware if not.)
